Brushed - Hearts of the West Blog Hop

Welcome to the Hearts of the West team blog hop!

If this is your first time joining us you will love it. It features Close To My Heart Consultants from all over Canada showing you their projects. The Hearts of the West team was founded by Nancy Klein!

This months challenge is the Brushed paper pack, brought to you by the new Annual Inspirations, hand picked from Nancy Klein.

If you came from Terry Ann's blog then you're in the right place, this is a go around blog hop so you can start anywhere! Just in case, the full list will be at the bottom. So, as always, grab your coffee, tea, water, relax, and hop around the team with us.

 I love this paper pack.  I've never been a pink person, but something about this paper pack drew me to it.  All of the colors just go so well together.

This little cutie is my great niece!  I asked for some new pictures for this layout and without even knowing what the layout looked like, my niece sent me the ones in pink!  I had to throw in the the swing picture though because she is just such a happy little one!

This is our little miracle baby!  She made her appearance early, Thanksgiving weekend 2013 at 2.2 lbs.  She was due to arrive January 2014, so three months early.  Such a little fighter she is!  I'm having great fun creating this album for my niece to document all the different milestones she has already gone through as well as the ones that are still to come!

Products used for this layout:
9035 Make It fromYour Heart Volume 1
X7190B Brushed Paper Pack
Z1790 Cricut Artiste
Z1807 Pink Glitter Gems
