It's time once again to Hop around the Rose Blossom Blog Hop. If you've come from Morgan's TweetSCRAPS Blog, you on going in the right direction.  I'm sure you've enjoyed her gorgeous artwork.

This time we are featuring the Close To My Heart Cricut Cartridges.  We had the choice of using any one of the five amazing cartridges to create our project.  I've chosen to use the Art Philosophy Cartridge to create some pretty flowers to go on a piece of home décor.

My Dear Friend had a milestone birthday this year and I wanted to make her something that would be a keepsake.  Her 85 year "young" Mom visited her and her hubby in Florida in February of this year.  Hubby was able to send me a few pictures of their adventures during her stay.  I chose this picture as it included all three of them at a Marina. My paper choice is Regatta and Regatta Complements . It is a perfect paper pack as it is all about a nautical theme.  This artwork is glued to a piece of chipboard and then glued to an 8 x 8 Canvas using Liquid Glass.

Here are a couple close-ups of the flowers.


 The flowers were so fun to create. Some were made using the Paper Fundamentals Enchantment paper pack and some were made with Ruby and Sunset cardstock. 

You can find all the supplies to create this project on MY WEBSITE HERE .

Your next Hop on the path is Kristine's Merry Hearts Creations Blog .  I know you will love what she has created!

Thanks for stopping into the Playground.  Hope to see you again soon.



  1. I am so inspired to pull out my Regatta and make flowers after seeing how stunning your page came out! You did such a wonderful job of mixing the flowers and the complements. This page is full yet balanced and stunning!

  2. First of all, there is so much love in the canvas, and she must have loved receiving it. How nice to find the photos ahead of time and be able to give her this wonderful gift of memories! I love the flowers in all the different colors and patterns. Such a perfect piece with all the great details!!
