Cross Canada Blog Hop: Picture My Life

Welcome to another Cross Canada Blog Hop!  If you've arrived here from Nicky at Timeless Cottage, you are on the right track.  If you'd like to literally hop across Canada, you can start at Julie's blog.  The entire list of hoppers can be found here.

This month we're focusing on Picture My Life, the pocket scrapbooking program Close To My Heart introduced in our last catalogue.  But, we're not doing scrapbooking with it, at least not how it was designed. We're going to show you new and different ways to use this program.

I chose to use only the Chantilly PML collections.  Check it out here.  My project sort of came to me while I was looking through all the cards.  They have some wonderfully uplifting sentiments on them, so this little encouragement album came about.

I chose some cards and the order I would put them in, adhering some together if the back of the card didn't work.  I added just two photos and some special messages for my daughter.  I punched a hole in one corner and used some really old Hollyhock and Blush ribbon to a jump ring.  Here are a few more of the pages.

Hop on over to Lucy's blog to see more fun ways you can use PML cards.  Check out the Chantilly PML kit here.  And tune in tomorrow for two more projects with this kit.

Don't forget that this month you can get a pack of page protectors for just $3 when you purchase a PML kit.
