Vacation Fun for CTMH Featured Products Blog Hop

Hello and welcome back to another installment of the Close To My Heart Featured Products Blog Hop, where this week we are bringing you vacation themed projects.  We have lots of amazing projects to show you from participants in 3 different countries so you will definitely want to take the whole tour for this one!  As always, hops are circular things so you should have arrived here from Lauren's blog but there is a complete list at the bottom of this page just in case you get lost.  Now on to my project!

My family doesn't really do destination types of vacations so I was feeling a little stuck with this one.  Luckily, a friend/former coworker just happened to mention she and her family are getting ready for their first cruise, and she has been talking about having me help her with some scrapbooking, so I was inspired to make her a title page so now she will have to come over and play --- I mean scrapbook!

I used the Calypso paper kit for this one.  I used the Artbooking cartridge to cut the "family vacation" at 4" height, and the Artistry cartridge to cut the earth at 8" and the "pins" at 1" each.  I plan to use either a journaling pen or an older sewing/stitching stamp set I have to mark their path once I know all the destinations.  Also, if I find out they are flying to where they will start their cruise, I will add a small airplane one one side of the earth and a ship on the other.  I can't wait to show it to her!

Thanks for stopping by and now it's time to journey on over to Donna's Blog to see what she has to share with you.  Please join us again on August 24th when we will be showcasing our fabulous new Fundamental papers, which just happen to be on special this month!
