Make it from the Heart Monday

Monday is almost over and I'm just getting around to posting my creation and this week I have done something a little different. I was inspired by the die cut blog hop I participated. I found all kinds of die cuts in my stash. And then this weekend I finally played around the the new Cricut® Artbooking Collection and then I met #5 and it all came together. See what I made!

This was so easy and took me less than an hour, yep an hour, from start to finish and I would love to show you how easy it really was, so get in touch with me.
