Hey, It's July! CTMH SOTM Blog Hop

Welcome to my blog - it is July already!!  Can you believe it?  Hot, humid and sultry describes my living conditions here in Florida...  but hey - I love the winters!!

Over 50 of the CTMH Consultants are participating in this month's blog hop and that is pretty good since many of us have been in Orlando the last few days, enjoying the NEW Autumn/Winter 2013 products!!  ( more posts coming soon...)


If you have been busy hopping with us, then you have arrived from Dawn Ross's blog here  and viewed her awesome design!  July's stamp set reminds me of my summers in western New York, where we enjoyed the fresh summer fruits of the season.  One of my fondest memories is picking cherries in the orchards on the 4th of July in Fredonia, NY....I believe it was the 'cheapest' family fun time ever!!


S1307 Sweet Life



Here is the artwork form Close to My Heart  to give you additional ideas or inspiration for your designs...



My one page layout does not give you the typical impression of fruit but more of an example of the "Sweet Life" we all live here in the U.S.!  This is the port we stopped at in Labadie, Haiti and of course we saw none of the impoverished lifestyle of the Haitians, only the cruise ship luxury that we are used to.  So again I am thankful that my immigrant grandparents decided to travel to America to live a better life and that, I as their granddaughter could do so as well.....

Thank you to my nanni and poppi and my babcia and dziadek 

Supplies:

S1307 Sweet Life
X7169B Tommy paper pack
X7169C Tommy My Stickease
Cranberry brads
Outdoor Denim ink and Baker's twine


Now it is off to Elizabeth's blog here to view her beautiful artwork.
