Home Is Where the Heart Is...

Hey y'all! Hope everyone has been enjoying some fabulous early spring weather like we have. Seriously, it has been just beautiful in central Oklahoma lately! And like I told y'all earlier, all this lovely weather has put me in a springy-type of crafting mood. So here I am again this week sharing a spring inspired project for Your Memories Here! I don't do much mixed media type art, but this week I thought - bring it on!

I decided to create a wall hanging using some wonderful Prima products. I just love, love, love this paper!! YMH has a fabulous selection of Prima papers, ribbon, bling, stamps, kits and more that you can check out RIGHT HERE! I did use a template for the house, but all the items are hand cut and I had so much fun creating. It really got me out of the craft funk I've been in and helped re-energize my mojo! I'm also thinking that I might create a pretty wreath and use this in the center of it. Not sure yet, but if I do, I'll make sure to share it with y'all! Oh, and are those two lil' chip board birdies covered with music notes not darling?!

Patterned Paper/Flowers/Rhinestones - Prima
Distress Ink - Tim Holtz/Ranger
 Tiny Type - Cosmo Cricket
Cardstock - The Paper Studio
Letter Stickers - Echo Park
Chipboard Embellishments - American Crafts
Large Chipboard Heart - Heidi Swapp
Ribbon - May Arts
Baker's Twine - The Twinery
Scallop Punch - Stampin' Up
Adhesive - Glue Glider Pro, Pop Dots, Aileen's Fast Grab Tacky Glue

Well, I hope you liked my project and it inspires you to create some crafty goodness of your own. In the meantime, hop on over to the YMH DT Blog for even more terrific inspiration HERE. And for some great prices on amazing goodies, check out the YMH Store RIGHT HERE. You will be so happy that you did! Well, I'm off to juggle the rest of the week and try to get some crafting in too. My mother had knee replacement surgery, I've got a parent/teacher conference tonight, kiddo is still having physical therapy on his shoulder, the hubby's big 4-0 birthday is Thursday and then the entire family is coming for Easter...whew! Ya know, sometimes life just isn't the same (or as fun!) unless it's crazy - LOL! ;0)
Until next time, Happy Crafting!!
