Guest Artist: CTMH

A few months ago as I was browsing blogs, like I regularly do. I found a post by Christina of See Christina Scrapbook.  She had been chosen to be a guest designer on Suzanne's blog Suzastampin's Creation Station. I of course hopped over to check out Christina's layouts.  I thought this was such a fun idea and signed up to participate as well.  I was thrilled when I was picked to be the Guest Artist for January.  Suzanne is a consultant for the scrapbook company Close To My Heart. At the end of December she ordered me their Avonlea on the go kit.  I had until the 15th of January to create the layout that was featured in the kit as well as other projects with  the leftover supplies from the kit ( I may or may not have been a few days late).

I will admit...I am not used to following a "pattern" per se so it was a bit of a challenge for me.  In addition to the required two page layout, I completed two additional two page layouts for the Chicago scrapbook that I am currently working on.  The kit contained quite a bit of green so it coordinated perfectly with the St, Patrick's Day pages I was working on.

The next layout is from our trip to the T-Shirt Deli in Chicago.  Not only did I scrap photos, but also all kinds of little extras that came from the gift wrapping - so cute!

The last one is from St. Patrick's Day and the GREEN Chicago River.  We missed the actual changing because I was in Walgreens buying band aids for my atrocious blisters - yep, I scrapped that detour as well! It is all part of the story....RIGHT????

A huge thank you to Suzanne for showcasing my work!


  1. What awesome pages! I can't believe you got all of those layouts from one kit!! I love that the green worked so well for you!!

  2. I love these pages! I can't believe that you got so many layouts out of one kit, that is so great!

    The river dying pictures you got are awesome! I love that you included the trip to Walgreens. I've never heard of the t-shirt deli I need to check it out before you leave!

    1. By "you" I meant "I"...when I leave! I'm losing my mind!

  3. Great pages!
    I love how you added all the little bits on the second page.
