Holiday Expressions Blog Hop...

Welcome to the 2nd full week in September...if that doesn't make you feel like Christmas will be here ASAP, I'm not sure what will!

One thing I am glad about it being September already is A NEW HOLIDAY EXPRESSIONS for us to pore over and order all the pretty To help you see some snippets into this Holiday Expressions, twenty-one CTMH Consultants have come together to have a Blog Hop showing you various things we've fallen in LOVE with!

This blog hop is much like our SOTM Blog Hops in that it's a round-robin type get on where can and hop 'till you get back to where you started! If my blog isn't your first stop, you should be coming from Carrie's Blog

I have LOTS of goodies to show you guys from my Extravaganza presentation but I decided to make something from scratch for the occasion. The Boutique line has become one of my FAVORITES and I'm really not sure why because I'm not a flowery person but these colors and delicate flowers just tug at my creative strings!

Here's a look at a layout I made using the Boutique line and some stamp sets...

I started with 2x2 squares of the GORGEOUS B&T papers then separated the squares by stamping one of the border stamps in the Boutique Card-Making stamp set. I used the NEW Watercolor Impressions stamp set to add some color behind the "you make my heart happy" sentiment...
I also used the Bunches of Love stamp set and the Boutique Puffy Stickers for this flower...see what I mean about "delicate"...I used our NEW Peach & Mint Inks for this flower and I'm soooo in LOVE with the result!

Now, all that's left to do is find somewhere to hide some journalling...might even let my QT tell me what to write since this photo is so dear to him!
