Love Is All You Need Using CTMH For Always Paper Pack

Hello friends!  Happy 4th of July for USA.  I am busy in my craft room again today.  I seem to have a lot of creativity right now; so I am taking advantage of it while it is here.  LOL!  It is super hot here in Southern CA again.  Best to stay inside. We have also had an Air Quality warning for a few days now.  I don't go out unless I have to.  I hope you are having a great day, whatever you are doing.

I created this card by casing Kristine Porter's card (CTMH consultant) using CTMH For Always (Bring Back My Pack Special) CC6263; which ends July 31 or while supplies last.  There are several really good specials for bundles; and you can get the paper with or without the sticker sheet.  

I have created 3 cards with this pack of paper so far; and this is my 3rd, even though I am posting it first.  LOL!  I changed up some of it; but most of the idea came from Kristine's post from a few years ago; when this pack first came out.  I am also using some retired products as well.

Thank you visiting my blog.  I hope you enjoy my creations.  I appreciate all of you.  Be sure to check out my tabs at the top of the page for my videos, tutorials, clubs, specials and  more. Call, text, Facebook message or email me with any questions you might have.

Click here for my new CTMH Videos. I added CTMH Workspace Wonder products to my desk a few years ago; and I was not able to use my video recorder on my desk after I did that.  It took me a long time to finally come up with a way to do videos with that same recorder; but on a different arm/holder.  Thanks for your patience. 

Remember - Keep On Creating!!
It's Good For Your Health!!
