Sunshine and Warm Breezes March Blog Hop

No surprise here that it has been a long winter... just read any one of the posts below. So I think it is time for the Sunshine and Warm Breezes Blog Hop. If you have arrived here from Arlene Bonsma's blog the you have come to the right place.
One of the best summer traditions that we have is my son participates in a Learn to Sail. He has been lucky enough to do it for several years. When I heard the theme for the Hop I instantly knew what pictures I would use. The papers featured in this layout are from the My Reflections Skylark with some Teal Shimmer Trim for a little bling.
I hope you enjoyed your stop here and it brought you some Sunshine & Warm Breezes.
If you are interested in any products- stop by my website.
Your next stop on the hop is here,at Kimberly Clarks blog.

Enjoy! Chris

Pennant Frame

So I thought it was very timely that HO posted this video this week. It is a video about a great home decor item from the 2014 Spring/Summer Idea Book,(page 129) the My Creation Pennant Frame.
It is a short cute video that shows lots of different ways to personalize your own. The reason I found it so timely is....look what I just got!
I have this on my To Do List... I am just trying to pick the paper and embellishments now. I will post photos when I am finished. I know I am going to love this project so you might see a few here in the future! I am thinking even a class!
Enjoy! Chris

Creative Chaos! Right?

I have to admit when I scrapbook or create it gets a bit messy! Sometimes I can hardly believe that anything pretty can come out of my mess. This is what my area looks like today.
I know I know -messy! Lots of fun creative stuff comes out if this mess. Right now I am working on so many exciting things, a card class, Bling on the Spring classes, a Blog Hop, Mini Summer Scrappers Club and some other great stuff. I thought it might be fun to show my process-haha! I hope you have a great day creating. Stop back to see what comes from this mess. By the way I do normally clean up a little between projects.
Enjoy! Chris
