Jack - CTMH Australian Blog Hop

Welcome to our Jack (X7222B) CTMH Australian Blog Hop for this month.  If you have arrived here from Lara's blog, then you are in the right place. If you landed here by accident, no problem, please join in by following the link at the end of this post.

I found this paper pack a little challenging and so went hunting for photos.  We are not a camping family so had to put the thinking cap on.  Found these photos of one of our trips to Sydney when the children were small and then scoured through Pinterest for some inspiration and came across this wonderful layout. Thank heavens for Pinterest.  Hopefully you will find them of interest and leave a comment below.

It is also a great pack to make Father's Day cards. Here are some of the other products which you might be interested in, Workshop Your Way - Jack Scrapbooking Kit and there are a couple of stamps with thin cuts sets so if you would like to purchase these great products, please hop along to my website or contact your own consultant.

I would love you to leave a comment before you move onto Doreen's blog and see her wonderful creations, she always does some beautiful work.

School Year- August Stamp of the Month

Hello and welcome to our School Year, Australian CTMH Blog hop.  If you have arrived here from Shaunna's blog, then you are in the right place. If you landed here by accident, no problem, please join in by following the link at the end of this post.
School Year - S1708

I looked at this stamp and thought what am I going to do with it, my children have finished school a number of years ago.  Then my grandchild suggested cards he can give to his friends at the end of the year and to new friends when he starts his new school next year, so I go thinking and creating.
Here is what I created, hopefully he will be happy with them and inspire you to go ahead and come up with a creation of your own.  This stamp (S1708) can be yours for just $7.50 with a qualifying order of $75.00 or for $27.00 if ordered separately.  This special offer is available until the end of August so to get this great deal go to my website or contact your CTMH consultant.

Digging in some storage boxes I came across photos of one of my daughters' last day in Yr 12 at Iona College.  I had made the costumes for her group of friends, "The Little Miss Group", she was 'Little Miss Giggles'.  Those costumes nearly drove me crazy, trying to get them to stay fat and round.  Anyway all the girls were delighted with their costumes.

Shop online for any of the CTMH products I used in my projects, on my website or with your own Consultant.

Thank you for stopping by and would love you to leave a comment before hopping along to the next blog for some great inspiration at Vandra's Virtual CTMH Craftoom
