Most recent CTMH swap

Well, I participated in another Close To My Heart swap at the beginning of May. Each time the newest Idea Book comes out, we have the opportunity to do a swap with 42 other consultants. Once we get our assigned paper pack and accessory, we then make 44 of the same (or close to the same) item. We send them all to the woman organizing the swap, she in return sends us all 1 of each of the 42 items (including our own). She also keeps one item for herself for organizing the event and she sends one to CTMH Corporate Office to show off our artwork.

*On a side note, my last swap card was recognized by Corporate for 3rd Runner Up in the March 2009 monthly contest. I had no idea until Linda told me she saw it on the website. I won $10 in product credit. That's pretty cool!

So here was my project this time around.

I did a 6x6 mini layout. I used the new "Animal Cookies" Creative Basics Paper Pack and my accessory this time was Clear Buttons. I think it came out pretty cute. I really like the Cottage Floral stamp set I used. It was a lot of cutting of flowers and leaves, but I like the 3-D effect.

I sent one with a baby picture of Mateo on it. That's the one that will be sent to Corporate. The others are all left blank for the other consultants to add their own artwork.

Here's the obligatory photo with all 44 items in it. It's always a big sense of accomplishment when you finally finish and see them all together!!

Linda also participated this time around and I love her cards!! Take a look!
