Make it from the Heart ~ WINNER!

When I received my message from Close To My Heart that one of my projects won the Make it from the Heart contest I was completely surprised! I have entered artwork for the contest for a couple of years, but never won before. I was jumping around my craft room and shrieking with excitement. My husband and kids thought I lost my mind!

My project is a Level 2 meaning that I created a two page layout using one of the new Autumn/Winter paper packs {Roxie}, any embellishments from the Idea Book and the layout contains NO stamping!

Here is the story behind the photo's. They were taken this past August on our annual trip to Lake Tahoe. We go to visit my Brother and his family and take in the cooler weather and gorgeous scenery all around. For YEARS I have wanted to do the Flume trail and it was SO worth it. What I did not mention in my journaling is that I had a full blown asthma attack right from the start of the trail (5 miles all up hill!). My husband stayed right with me and I pushed myself to get over the top. So glad I did because I would have missed the cliff side views, the lakes {one that we actually had to cycle through the water} and the most amazing experience!

You can see all the winners of the make it from the heart contest on the CTMH website. Tons of inspiration there to get your creativity flowing.

I will share my other projects that did not win later this week.
