December Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to the December Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! If you just arrived from Laura's blog, you are on the right path.

This month there are over 60 Close To My Heart consultants participating. We are featuring the December Stamp of the Month Notice the Details, a set of 41 stamps.  I can't wait to see the various projects that all of the participants will be showing.  This set has a lot of potential for some fun projects.

The title of this stamp set made me think about my Project 365.  Let's just say I haven't kept up with that the way I'd intended.  But this set is exactly what Project 365 is about--noticing the little everyday things, and keeping track of it.  I used this set in my layout for the week of Spring Break.  I took the week off of work to spend with my son.  We had a fun week, doing a bunch of little things.  I'm glad that I was able to spend that time with him, and even happier that I documented it.




Papers: CTMH Colonial White, Sweet Leaf and Twilight cardstock

And, because I know someone will ask, yes that is a giant rattlesnake in the picture.  Photo is at the very bottom of the post (so if you're squeamish, don't scroll past the link to the next blog).  

Remember, Notice the Details is only available December 1st-31st, 2009.  Contact your Close To My Heart consultant, or click here, to order one for yourself.

Now hop on over to Katy's blog to see what she has created!

If you find any broken links along the way, Jena has the complete list on her blog.

Do you really want to see it?

Don't say I didn't warn you...

Seriously, you've been warned.

Last chance....

Now imagine trying to take a picture of a flower and hearing your little one say "mom, there's a snake", and then turning to see this thing about 6-8 feet away from your kid.  Good thing I'm not a screamer...  If I hadn't stopped to take that flower picture, I would have walked within striking distance of that thing.

I love how you combined the words on the stamp with your journaling! That snake picture is just darn scary - I can handle harmless garter snakes but that one gives me the shivers!

Great job with the photo storage pages!
That snake is just plain creepy!

Jena said...

Great minds think alike (wink, wink).

When I lived in Colorado, we had rattlers too! I went to pick up a box that the postman left leaning agains my garage door. It was a book order. As I went to move it, I heard a sound...behind the box was a baby rattlesnake. Big or small, they are still dangerous!

At least you thought to take a photo of the snake :-)
