Close to my Heart isn’t just about scrapbooking.  You can create some beautiful items for your home – they may just be beautiful pieces of art, or they may be “display” memory keeping, or BOTH!  That’s what the Team Brae-er’s June Blog Hop is all about.  Take a hop through our posts and see how my fellow CTMH consultants have taken our products and used them to decorate our homes!

·         This is a circular hop so you can start here and go all the way around.
·         If you came from Darcel's blog, then you are going in the right direction.

HERE'S MY PROJECT: Later Sk8r Display Tray

Our Black Display Tray and Picture My Life Cards go together so well.  They were just the colours I wanted to create a home décor memory keeping piece about my son Charlie – and because the 4x3 cards fit perfectly in the 4x3 display boxes, it went together so easily.

I then used larger 4x6 cards and larger photos to create focal points on the corners.  I attached these over top of the tray using Liquid Glass.

And then I embellished – shimmer trim, washi tape and white enamel stars were just the thing to add some pizzazz to this display tray.

I have a large wall going down the stairs and into my craft room in my home.  It is filled with family photos and this tray will be an amazing addition to that collection.

** Funny story!  I had this artwork on display at a vendor show I worked recently.  A little boy in a Superman t-shirt (complete with cape) stopped dead in front of it.  He pointed to the lightning bolt and said to his mom, “Look!  It’s the Flash!”.  My hubby and kids are huge Marvel fans, so this was a really appropriate comment.  It made me giggle. **

Your next stop on this GET IT BEFORE IT’S GONE Blog Hop is Nicky's blog.
