Live Beautifully for CTMH Featured Products Blog Hop

Hello, crafty friends!  Welcome back for another edition of the Close To  My Heart (CTMH) Featured Products Blog Hop.  In honor of May being National Scrapbooking Month, CTMH has brought us this stunning beautiful Live Beautifully kit to enjoy, available only in the month of May.  There are two levels of kits to choose from as well as a coordinating stamp set, so there is truly something for everyone in this one!  As you can tell, we are really excited to share our projects with you so if you came here from Corinna's blog you are in the right place but, as always, hops are circular things so you are welcome to jump in anywhere along the way and simply make the rounds.  I have also included a complete list of this week's participants at the end of this post in case you get lost along the way.  Now on to my project:

The project I want to share with you is a layout of my in-laws very unique wedding that took place in 1939, so of course I wanted to do it justice but it is took a little longer than expected while I tinkered with preserving the original documents and newspaper clippings that go with it.  I ended up making a sleeve to hold the correspondence and memorabilia, attached that to a long strip of cardstock cut to the same width, and then cut slits in the page protector so that contents of the sleeve were still accessible.  The final touch was to decorate the sleeve so that it looked like a fancy envelope with an embossed monogram.  I still plan on doing a second page to go along with this one, but I really wanted to get this one up.

So now it's time for you to hop on over to Lauren's blog to see what loveliness she has in store for you.  We hope you will join us again in two weeks on 5/17/17 when our theme will be the new Little Dreamer kit.  Until then, happy crafting!  ~~  Annette
