Let's Celebrate with a Little White Pine

Welcome to Close to My Hearts White Pines! This is the SWAA Blog Hop for November.
And this is our holiday paper line - so there are Christmas trees and snowflakes on it but look at all the neat graphics also!   It can be used for so much more than Christmas layouts,
And the Compliments are so adorable!!

So you should have arrived here from Tammy's blog if you are on the Hop, or if you are just starting out here on mine, just click on the link below to hop on over to Jen Patricks blog and keep hopping all the thru.  We have 7 participants this month - don't miss a project :-)

Speaking of projects - here's mine:
I love this layout for New Year goals and a picture - not sure if it will be one of me or a picture of one of my goals.  I used the Ink Blots stamp set on page 92 of the main Idea Book ànd our water color paints for the background  - SO FUN!  My monthly Club Gals and I are doing a project with the watercolor paints so I've been experimenting with them a lot.  For this I worked a couple of colors together to get the lagoon-ish and the red colors to match the paper and used a brush to "paint" it on the stamp and then applied to the paper. Some of the background ink blots are stamped like normal also.  It was a lot of fun and I recommend trying it! 
Isn't the glitter star gorgeous?!
Catherine Farnsworth Nowak made a layout that was my inspiration. You can check it out on her blog here.
We both used the November stamp of the month.  It's a good one - contact me or your consultant to order both White Pines and the stamp set.

Now hop on to Jen's Blog and see what she's made this month for us.
Have a wonderful Fall Day and eat something pumpkin! :-)
