Welcome to our February Team Braer Blog Hop that focuses on "New items" in our brand new idea book.   You will see creations from our team that may include stamp sets,patterned paper,inks, embellishments and more from the Close To My Heart Spring/Summer 2014 Idea book. To purchase any of the items seen in our blog hop today, kindly contact your local consultant to place an order.
We hope that you will take the time to leave comments on our posts, as we really love feedback from our blog viewers....whether it was something that you really liked or some new technique that was used that you would like to learn how to leaving us comments, we get to hear what you like, and what you want to see. Thank you… now on to our hop!

If you have just hopped onto my blog, you can start here as this is a circular hop.  If you came from Sherri Ballantyne of then you are in the right place!

My project features our new Picture My Life Skylark Scrapbooking Program and our Skylark paper collection and embellishments.  I love the versatility of the Picture My Life cards and page protectors.  Not all of us have time to scrapbook a traditional two-page layout, but these kits help us create our beautiful layouts faster and easier.  I have combined a traditional layout on the left, with the Picture My Life complimentary page on the right.  What do you think?  I wish the colours looked more accurate as this photo really doesn't do the paper justice. You could do both pages with the PML cards and your photos, making your scrapbooking even faster!  The 4 x 3 cards also fit perfectly into our 12 x 12 Display Tray as well.  

There are eight different Picture My Life Scrapbooking kits and they can be seen here: 

List of supplies used:  X7177B Skylark Paper Pack $9.95, 9037 "Reflections":Triple Play - Offset X7177C Skylark Complements $4.95, Z1947 Picture My Life Skylark Scrapbooking Program $24.95,  CTMH chocolate ink, Z1849 Bronze Shimmer trim, Z1151 Foam Tape, Z1812 Sparkles Flourishes, Z1912 Corner Rounder, retired Mocha Opaques.
