Three Amigos February Blog Hop

Welcome to the Three Amigos CTMH Mini-Blog Hop. We are three Close to My Heart Consultants with a love for Stamping and Scrapping and would like to share our creative ideas with you. Each month we feature a different CTMH product and create a card, layout or other project. There are only 3 stops on this hop so it will only take a few minutes to hop through.  The Spring/Summer Idea Book is finally here!.  We chose to highlight Skylark this month.

I decided to create the Skylark WOTG layout with a few changes.  I added a couple cards from the new Skylark Picture My Life set and some of the Skylark Dimensional Elements.  I wanted to keep the layout fairly simple and organic, so I used embellishments sparingly.  Once I have the pictures on the layout, I might add a few more resin birds and flowers from the Skylark Assortment.


This layout will feature pictures of my youngest daughter, Alayna,  As soon as she saw the paper pack and accessories, she loved them.  The title is a little inside thing between Alayna and her best friend.  Now, whenever we want to thank Alayna for something she's done or just let her know how proud we are, we tell her "You're The Birds."


I created the title on a card from the PML set.  As soon as I saw this card, I knew I had to use it.  Since the image on the card is the same image on the paper used in the WOTG flyer, I decided to stamp the base pages of my layout with the Flight of Arrows stamp set.


I plan to write a condensed version of how Alayna became "The Birds" on another card from the PML set.  Alayna would like me to add a couple arrows and maybe a feather charm from the new Base and Bling accessories.

Thanks for hopping by!  Now, hop on over to Lisa's Blog to see what she created for you this month.
