Cruisin' . . . over the Hill

I am really enjoying this past release of CTMH paper packs!  One of my favorites is the CTMH Cruisin Papers!  This card is based on a Sketch Saturday's from a couple of weeks ago, but hey, life's been busy. . . notice a theme happening? 

I rotated the sketch and here's what I came up with:

Isn't this image just the cutest. . . I have a couple of biker "dudes" in the family, so I'm sure I'll be able to use this card to help them celebrate an upcoming b-day!  

Inside Sentiment "Where? When? I don't remmeber any hill . . .  Happy Birthday".   

Papers:  CTMH "Cruisin" Paper Pack
Stamps:  Whimsey Stamps "Biker Girl" & CTMH "Birthday Greetings"
Ink:  Tuxedo Black, CTMH Cranberry
Accessories:  Spell Binders Die Cuts, Felt Swirls & Copic Markers

TFL!   Have a great day!!!

H2H Scrapbooking Challenge

Over at Heart 2 Heart, design team member Cheryl, has created a great two page spread for this months challenge.  Be sure to go to Heart 2 Heart to check out Cheryl's creative example. 

It features six 4" x 6" prints (one with a little bit cut off on the side), and two 3" x 3" prints. The darker paper strips are 3" x 9", and the lighter ones are 3" x 12". The circle is 6.5", and the photos have 1/4" mats. Either side of the sketch would make a fine single page layout; just add a title to the left hand page. You can replace the stars with whatever elements work for your pictures. Don't forget to link your finished page back at H2H so they can see what you did with the sketch.

The rules are pretty simple for this Challenge: 
  • In order to enter a challenge, you must use CTMH products but your project does not have to be 100% CTMH.
  • If you use something from another company, please consider including details in your project's description.
  • You MUST mention H2H challenges in your blog post and a link back to us would be appreciated.
  • Spread the word about our challenge blog by including our badge on your blog.
  • Most importantly, have fun creating - the Close To My Heart way!
Good Luck and I can't wait to see what you scrappy gals can come up with!
