I have wanted to do one of those Project Life albums for quite some time now, so you can imagine how excited I was when Close to my Heart came out with the Picture my Life sets!  I ordered the Avonlea right away, but still didn't know where to begin.  So, I ordered the Babycakes because I knew I would use that very soon with my first grandchild on the way!  Well, I finally got ambitious on my ??? snow day and created my first Picture my Life page using cards from both the Avonlea and the Babycakes set for my youngest son's 1st birthday pictures.  I should have done this almost 7 years ago, but I guess I was waiting just for this wonderful product!  Below is my first completed page along with a picture of the Babycakes from the CTMH image gallery.  Sorry that the picture of my completed page isn't more clear, but the lighting just wasn't working for me at the time!

 I bought this stamp set in February just in time for my son's Blue & Gold Cub Scout banquet.  I'm his den leader and I needed centerpieces for the tables for where my boys' families would be sitting.  I grabbed my stamp set, some paper, ink, gift bags, and tissue and here is what I came up with!  7 bags complete from start to finish in just 10 minutes!  Inside, I put the boys' Pinewood Derby car kits and a Cub Scout t-shirt.  After I had this done, my husband gave me a better idea for next time.  He said to turn the paper so it was in a diamond shape like the badges they have for their shirt!  Below is a video from Close to my Heart, featuring this stamp!
