CTMH Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Close To My Heart Summer '09 "Blog Hop!"

What's a blog hop? Over 40 CTMH Consultants are celebrating the May 1 release of the Summer 2009 Idea Book by sharing artwork made with something new. If you've found my blog by hopping from another one, glad you're playing along! For my faithful followers, thanks for stopping by yet again. Please leave me a comment to let me know what you think of the blog hop and my project. I hope you enjoy this post and the hop. Just click on the link at the end of the post to go to the next blog. Here we go!

My project is a dry erase/memo board that goes into an 8"x10" frame. That's right, just slip this into a frame, and you can write on the glass with a dry erase marker! It will wipe off with a paper towel or my favorite, an old (clean!) sock. I used the new Bella paper pack (in Creme Brulee, Olive, Smokey Plum, and Hollyhock) and the office-ready new My Acrylix stamp set, Comments (D1359). I had to use a Just Blooms flower or two, fastened on with a brad. I didn't want to add too much bulk due to the frame, but I couldn't resist a little. Isn't the paper clip adorable? It is actually stamped on there and is one of the 12 stamps in the set. I even stamped all the writing/journaling lines you see on the memo board.

Now, it's your turn to play. Hop on over to Dawn's blog at to see what she has in store. (If you're jumping into the hop here in the middle, you can go back to the beginning at Erin's blog. BTW, give Erin a "thank you" shout out for organizing this fun event.) Hope you can check out everyone's blogs to see some great new CTMH products from the Summer '09 Idea Book. It goes "live" May 1, so check my CTMH website then to see the idea book/catalog for yourself. Happy blog hopping!


  1. Now why did I read this first thing, when I really, really need to do some 'real work' and now I only want to blog hop?!!! OK, I'll save the 'hop' as my treat for when I get my work done, but let me first tell your readers that your dry erase board is 'adowable!' I saw it, tried it, and it works!!!
