Welcome to "My Life" and to the Close to my Heart Summer 2009 Idea Book Blog Hop!! Join us as we celebrate the upcoming release of the Summer 2009 Idea Book by sharing some amazing creations using new product from CTMH available May 1st! If you have arrived from Miranda's Blog, you are on the right path! If this is your first stop, you may want to go back to Erin's blog at and start from the beginning!

It's simple to join in...just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog and it will lead you on to the next participant....Here we go!

I decided to create a CD case photo cube! I have been eyeing these cute cubes and decided to try one with the new CTMH Back Country Level 1 Stickease and Dimensional Elements In Color-Adventure on page 16 and 17 of the new catalog. I also used Outdoor Denim, Barn Red and Olive CS, some retired CTMH beads and Natural Hemp. For the water on the rafting picture, I used some B & T paper from the "Moon Doggie" Level One paper pack, bumped up one of the waves with dimensional foam tape and applied some Liquid Glass. I used the directions in the great tutorial found here and have not quite figured out how I want to finish up the bottom as I need something that won't cover my embellishments at the lower part of the cube??? It's always something : )
Anyway, without further ado....

Now, "Hop" on over to Traci's blog at to see her work! Be sure to visit all the consultants at their blogs to get some great ideas for the new product. Remember, the Summer 2009 Idea Book goes LIVE on May 1st!
