Family & Friends - Art Philosophy Blog Hop

(IF you are looking for the December "Stitching" Technique Hop, click here.)

Welcome to our "Family and Friends" Blog Hop where we are showcasing  the exclusive Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge which can be purchased exclusively through a Close to My Heart Independent Consultant. This will be our last Art Philosophy blog hop for 2012.

We will be showing you creations made using the Art Philosophy cartridge for our family and friends.

If you just happened to come to this blog, you should start at the beginning at Lucy's blog - Love 2 Create.  If you came here from "Stephanie's" blog, The Quilted Scrapper, then you're in the right place!

 My project is ... "Forever in my Heart" Layout

My daughter means the world to me.  She has many qualities but my favorite is how photogenic she is.  I swear she can't take a bad pic.  This pic inspired the page using my new DCWV Far East paper and combining it with a few left over AP cuts I had.  The frame around the date, the scalloped background (under the two flowers) and the two dragon fly cuts (my favorite) are all from the cartridge.  The leave under the flowers were also cut from the cartridge.  Everything was cut using Cricut Craft Room for a few different projects (but I never throw anything away!).

After the evens of today in Newtown, CT, this page and all of them featuring my daughter from a baby on are even more precious.  I hope that one day she values the time I took to document her precious life and all the moments that I remember so well.

You've reached the end of the hop!  Thank you for stopping by.
