Colette's sponsored product LO.

Remember by Colette Bate (click on her name for a link to her blog)
My journaling challenge this week is to answer the question, 'What would I do if I had a million dollars?. But, how do you scrap something like that? Well, my BFF, Joy, sent me this birthday card last year and the picture on the front was exactly what I needed to relate to my journaling. Now I have preserved a card that I was given (that has special meaning for me) and it also serves as a great method of holding my journaling which is about me ... for my scrapbook. It may be a card that someone gave you, a travel brochure from an exotic place you have been, or even a movie ticket stub that might help you scrap your story.

I used the large deco heart from the Heirloom Hearts punch to create the patterned paper border on the left side. Then, I layered the smaller hearts that were left over in clusters to create these fun 3-D flowers. All I needed to do was just doodle some stems and leaves and embellish the centers with a button and ribbon. The Mini File Tab punch was placed on the card to invite the viewer to open the card to reveal the journaling inside.

My thanks to McGill for the awesome jumbo punches! I received the Heirloom Hearts Jumbo punch and the Mini File Tab punch and had a blast using them on this page! You can be sure the Tab punch is going to get a work out at my house. And, the Heirloom Hearts punch is so versatile ... all you need is a little imagination.

Thanks to Colette for her submissions. I appreciate that you want to take a gap, but your contibutions will be missed. Thanks for all the good stuff you have shared with us.
