Key to my Heart Wall Hanging

What a wet day! When it rains it is a good time to curl up with a few of your favorite stamps to make a great project. I used the Key to my Heart paper on this 6"x6" Accordion Album Wall Hanging. This is would be a great gift for someone who just moved into a new home. This would also make good end of the year teacher gifts. Sunday school teachers appreciate little gifts too.

Mediterranean Cruise with Close to my Heart

I earned this Mediterranean Cruise with Close to my Heart. What a blessing Close to my Heart has been for my family. Honestly, who really gets to go on a seven day Cruise to Europe? We got gifts every night from Close to my Heart, plus we were in a balcony room. It was an amazing adventure for my family. This was our first port on the island of Malta. It was a beautiful island. English is their first language here. They drive on the opposite side of the road so that was a little weird. Our driver thought she was a race car driver but we were in a open top jeep.

This is where the movie Popeye with Robin Williams was filmed. The water was beautiful. I could picture myself having a little holiday cottage there. :) (Alright, you could visit too).
