Life's a Beach!

I don't know about you, but with this whole quarantine business, I would love to have my life at the beach!  However, that is not the case, for many of us!  So, instead, we are going to play with paper that helps us imagine that we are there, or get ready to scrap some photos from when we were there last!

Remember, you have until the end of the month to play along with all of the challenges!  I'm sure you could find a way to craft something that helps you think you are at the beach, right?

Let's take a look at some artwork that our design team has come up with, shall we?

{Brandi} has made this SUPER cute layout!  Look at all those fun colors!  I love the Seas the Day papers, don't you?

{Catherine} has made this fantastic page with the Cut above kit from Seas the Day.

{Melissa} made this SUPER adorable mini album page with the seas the day paper packet, too!

I know that you have some great inspiration here with these fun colors and pages!  We can't wait to see how you play along with this challenge!  You have until the end of the month to join this and all of our April challenges.

Welcome to this week's Heart 2 Heart challenge!  Like all of our April challenges, you can play along all month long!

The theme this week is Pet-Pourri. We love our pets and this is a great time to scrapbook your pets or create a pet-based card for someone special. Pets are truly members of the family and they are sometimes overlooked in creative endeavours - it's time to let them take the spotlight!

Please remember to use at least one Close To My Heart product in your project - and if it isn't evident, make sure to identify that in your post.

Let's take a look at what the design team created to celebrate Pet-Pourri.

You have until the end of April to link up your project.
There are two other April challenges still open - be sure to check them out.

We can’t wait to see what you create!
