1-2-3 Craft! A Very Mini Blog Hop

Thanks for stopping by at the 1-2-3 Craft blog hop.  Our featured Close To My Heart pattern this month is from Originals Card Confidence Program page 126.  I decided to make my version of this pattern into a Thank You card, of which I currently need a few.  It all goes together so quickly and easily when I turn to Close To My Heart for a sketch.

My papers are from the For Always paper pack, one of my favorite packs that has carried over from the Spring/Summer Idea Book.  This was also my first time using washi tape.  I hope I did it right.

Now check out what Mary and Tracey did for their 1-2-3 Craft! blogs.  You'll see something similar, and yet completely different.

Laughing Lola a Paper Trail Blog Hop

It's here, it's here, my project for Laughing Lola!

I'm a bit late jumping onto the Paper Trail blog hop and I hope you've found me anyway. If you came along the trail leading to my blog you should have arrived from Mary's Road to Peace of Mind.  If you have been waiting for me and are just getting started, just follow the link at the end of the blog and you'll have a fun, creative journey full of Laughing Lola and end up right back here.

I did a two page layout and I don't mind telling you, I love it!
