Paper Fundamental's Blog Hop

Thanks for hopping over from Morgan's Blog. I'm sure you've seen a beautiful creation. This is a big circle of crafters who love Close To My Heart and everything you can create with their amazing products. On the agenda today, we are showcasing Close To My Heart's 'AWESOME' Paper Fundamental's.  These are absolutely beautiful paper packs. No matter what you decide to create with this all matches so well and there are also matching sticker packs and assortments which add so much.

These pictures are from our Labor Day Weekend at the Lake.  Mom (who is 84 years young) was so pleased to be able to drive 'herself' to our resort which is located about an hour south of where she lives.  Our kids and their kiddo's were there as well.  We had such a great time and Mom really enjoyed spending time with her Great Grands as well as her Grands. Cherish these memories of her visit.

Because of all the pictures, the CTMH Flip Flaps were the first thing I thought of.  This two page layout with the Flip Flaps worked perfect for this memory. (Beware....shots of this are not the best - hard to photograph without glare on the Flip Flaps)

Here are the 2 layouts opened up.

This one is my favorite...

Hope to see you soon on the Playground!
