Three Amigos Mini Blog Hop January

Welcome back to the Three Amigos CTMH Mini-Blog Hop. We are three Close to My Heart Consultants with a love for Stamping and Scrapping and would like to share our creative ideas with you. Each month we are featuring a different CTMH product and create a card, layout or other project. There are only 3 stops on this hop so it will only take a few minutes to hop through.

For this challenge we decided to feature some of the products that will be retiring come February.  The  product I chose was the Huntington Paper Pack.  It's a beautiful paperpack that I just didn't use as much as I wanted.  I needed to create a shadow box for Christmas for a friend using the senior pics I took of her son.  She has been a good friend and a life raft to me at work and I wanted to thank her for that.    The shadowbox took a much different turn than I expected... my plan originally was to use all the great arrows and southwestern flavored embellishments that all of our current stamp sets and Cricut cartridge have to offer (after all it is trendy and we do live in Arizona).   The colors of Huntington were perfect and the rest kind of brought itself together. The feeling was a little more "elegant" and I think it suited the picture much better so as usual, my plans changed.  Then when I found the quote, I knew it was perfect.

So long my good friend sad to see you go!

Now, hop on over to Donna's Diary of a Scrapbook Addict blog and see what she created!
