It's A Pajama Party! Come Join the Fun!

My Creations Kraft Container 5-3/4" tall
I am so excited I can hardly stand it! Close To My Heart is teaming up with Big Picture Classes to bring you a live webcast with step-by-step instructions for making this Happy Thoughts kraft container. The FREE webcast will air Thursday, May 30 from 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm (MDT). During the presentation, you’ll learn to make several projects from a variety of sponsors, including this Close To My Heart Happy Thoughts kraft container, as the presenter walks you through the steps.

Watch the Pajama Party by yourself or with friends for a fun crafting pajama party. Anyone with an Internet connection can watch, so be sure to order your project supplies in advance and then tune in!

The Pajama Party class will be available for FREE at BigPictureClasses.com on May 30. If you would like to interact on the message board, participate in live chat, post to the gallery, download handouts, or enter any contests, you will need to log in to the Pajama Party “classroom” by creating a free account on the Big Picture Classes website.

Sk8in' on the Paper Trail

Our Paper Trail blog hop this month features Close To My Heart "Later Sk8r," with colorful blues and greens - some of my favorite "happy colors."  The patterns are totally fun skater and splashy/sloppy prints, with great accents of plaid.

I'm happy you found me on the trail and I hope you enjoy the trip.  It matters not if you've come here from Amy's blog, Pineapple Paper Artist, or are just getting started.  Our path is circular and you will visit us all by following the links.

My contribution this month is a 2 page layout using pieces of one of our zip strips for accentuating a boy theme, but I'd be the last to say girls aren't skaters or don't like green or blue, so you could take it either way. .

Thanks for stopping by today.  Your next stop on the trail is Connie's blog, Scraps & Stories.  I'm sure you will like what she's got for you!
