This was the way it looked when it was all opened up. I kept the theme going on the inside with the stripes and diamonds and added some stinkin' cute star paper clips that I found at Office Depot to complete the look.
Also, check out the way the pictures on the top left and bottom right sort of fit together like a puzzle. I found a new toy! I loaded up a bunch of pictures onto Costco.com and made a composite with them. Then I printed it out and cut it in half to mount them on my pages. But GUESS WHAT! Close to My Heart will have a new online software of it's own at the first of the year that will do this very thing! I can't wait to try Studio J!
Contact me if you have any questions about any of the things above.

My favorite things in the world are a showery day, a warm cup of cider, a great idea and an empty notepad, or two or three - heck, just get me a whole case of the suckers, the pink ones! :) When my mom challenged me to do what I loved, I reclaimed my desire to write and can't stand to go a day, now, without spending some time with a pen in my hand. I'm not sure where God is leading me on this journey, but I asked Him to give me the desires of my heart and trust that He has for a purpose.
