June's Stamp of the Month..."The Long Way Home"

Welcome to the CTMH Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!
June 2016's Stamp of the Month is called.....
****The Long Way Home****

With almost 30 participants in this blog hop, you are sure to find lots of wonderful ideas on using Close To My Heart's June Stamp of the Month.  The hop makes a circle, so if you are starting here just continue until you make your way back and you will have made it through them all. If you have already started and are coming from Michele Rowley's blog, "Evergreen Memories", then you are on the right track.

When I got this stamp set I knew that it would be perfect for the pictures of my trip to Key West last summer with my best friend.  My colors were inspired by one of our newest paper collections called Calypso...perfect for South Florida pictures. Finally, my layout was based on a sketch in Close To My Heart's "Make It From Your Heart" Volume 2 Sketch Book. Now, just to get my pictures developed.
