"Everything New"

Welcome to the very first Rose Blossom Blog Hop of 2017.  We will be blogging on the 15th of every month so I hope you stop back for a little bit of inspiration and creativity.  This month we are featuring designs and projects from the Close To My Heart newest Seasonal Expressions 1 Idea Book. 
If you've come from Morgan's "TweetScraps" Blog, I'm sure you've seen some very creative artwork. 
My favorite part of paper crafting is creating layouts to preserve events and memories of our family, friends, activities and trips. 
This layout is featuring one of the new "Workshops Your Way "Sugar Rush"
Kit contents:
1 – Sugar Rush paper packet (X7215B)
1 – Sugar Rush Complements (X7215C)
4 – cardstock sheets (1 Whisper, 3 White Daisy)
1 – Sugar Rush dots (Z3310)
1 – Sugar Rush washi pack (Z3311)
The memory I chose to preserve is of our youngest Granddaughter Charlee.  Her Mom captured the most adorable pictures of her testing out her first Birthday cake.  When I saw these pictures, I knew exactly which paper pack to reach for.  The pictures are matted with Close To My Hearts paper of the year Sea Glass . This gorgeous cardstock is a color that coordinates with everything.  

The cluster of flowers along the bottom of the layout are made from the
 Flower Market Cricut Cartridge  and have a touch of sparkle from our
Gold Shimmer Brush along with some Gold Glitter Gems for a little accent in the center.
You can find all of these items on my website HERE .
Now it's time to hop on over to Kristine's "Merry Heart Creations" Blog to see her creativity flowing.
Thanks for stopping at the Playground!  Hope to see you again soon.
