3 mini melody white flowers
1 sheet rub-ons (connection club)
stylus (or score blade for paper trimmer)
½" circle punch
Score on the long side at 4.5" Score on the short side at 3, 6, and 9. (refer to the picture above, click it to make it larger)
fold in 1/2 on the long side.
fold 2 flaps inward to form book, crease all sections well. Using the bone folder works best. Your book may not line up exact, the more you work the creases the better it will come together.

For those of you who have been to my house, you know we have a very nice yard. Perfect trees, gorgeous flowers, and a yard that looks like a golf green. This is what it looks like tonight. What I have been referring to as "THE BIG SMELLY HOLE". Plus a new lawn statue, aka, backhoe. We needed some of the plumbing replaced (yep, the smelly part) and they have made a huge hole, and giant mountains of dirt in my most beautiful yard. I can't hardly stand it, but its better than the alternative (I will spare you the details). Good thing Charlie owns a landscape company, it will all be put back together soon.

This Rolodex is just like the one I taught as a class, just different paper. I like the way the same project can look completely different by just changing the paper.
If you would like to see the other one her is a link to My websitehttp://kaaronbrown.myctmh.com/WebSites/Templates/MyCTMH/Template1.aspx?PageID=53&HighlightID=244707
Just in case you are wondering what these are used for-To store important dates, like birthdays and anniversaries, or just any day that is special!!

I read way to many blogs, and one of my favorites is Nicole Heady. I find all of here ideas great, and love her designs. Nicole (I say that as if I know her!!) has her own line of stamps. Now I love CTMH, and I don't use much out side of CTMH, but I just love the design of these stamps. After Christmas I bought myself 3 of her stamps, and this rain boot is one of them.
I just love this, boot and flowers, I wish I had made the leaves a bit darker, but still love it.
One of the other stamps I bought is my favorite. I will post some of that around Valentines Day.
The paper her is from "Cocoa Cafe" and old CTMH special (I have been hording it for awhile)

I had a heck of a time getting the pictures today, the wind is blowing a 40 miles per hour. I have about 10 pictures of the cards blowing over. lol!!
For this 2nd card I used all color pencils on the flower child image. I used the ones from CTMH, but I think any kind will match since the CTMH ones are not true to color (or at least for me anyways) I also added prisma glitter on the edges of the petals. I really liked how that turned out, it looks better in person.
