Balloon Ride Blog Hop

With CTMH  (and most home based businesses) we have a hierarchy of "uplines" aka "those who joined the company as an independent consultant before you did!" I feel this hierarchy has some perks and for me one of these perks is that I am part of a bigger team of consultants here in BC.  This team is called the Greenhearts and it is under a wonderful lady named Pam, who really has been a great source of help and knowledge.  Recently the Greenhearts have started a monthly blog hop and this month I finally get to play along (too many other commitments the past few months to join in).  We are still a small hop but I hope you take a moment to not only check out my creation but that of the others as well.

This months hop is featuring the beautiful Balloon Ride Paper Packet and the first time I saw this paper I knew I wanted to do a layout using this cute little black and white photo of my mom and me from when I was about a year old.  

Product I used for this project:
- Balloon Ride Paper Packet
- Balloon Ride Complements 
- Balloon Ride Assortment
- Cricut Artbooking for the pretty bow frame
- Cricut Artiste for the lacy "doily" that is behind the flowers, etc.
- Chocolate Distressing Ink
- Sparkle Flourishes
and a few random flowers and bits of lace from my stash!

I was going to include some journaling on this layout but it just didn't work,  I will probably make this into a two page layout in the future but right now I am loving how this came together and it was wonderful to make a full page after all the cards I have done over the past few months.

My apologies on the pictures, my camera ran out of battery as I was taking the last one.  Once it has recharged I will try retaking these photos tomorrow  and see if I cannot get the lighting more even and the layout straight!
Thanks for stopping by and I truly appreciate your comments.  Here are the links to the other bloggers on the hop.  Enjoy!

Happy Crafting!



  1. I really love the simplicity of your layout and how the picture pops out.

  2. Very pretty! I love how you chose to feature one special photo on this layout. It works really well.

  3. This is stunning! Love that there is only one photo featured - the best of everything - wonderful memory, photo and paper!
