Charmed, I'm Sure

Welcome to a new month of the Technique Blog Hop!  This month we are sharing creations using the assortment of Close To My Heart jewelry charms as shown on page 133 of the Annual Inspirations Ideabook in different projects that are not jewelry.  If you are coming from Catherine's blog then you are on the right track.  Be sure to visit all our designers' blogs to get tons of inspiration!

For my layout I used one of the Circle Pennants to feature a picture of my great grandmother and I.  It's so simple to punch out a 1" circle and pop it right into the pennant.

clear glass cover is available to keep your picture securely in the pennant and give it some protection from the elements.  I added a piece from the Thinker and Rhinestone charms collection on the ribbon for some added effect. Here's a close up of the pennant area of the layout.  Because I didn't want the pennant and charms to move around on my layout, I secured each of them to the paper with a glue dot.

I chose to use the retired Timberline Collection paper because it is so rustic and antique looking - which goes perfectly with my photo of the cafe.  You'd never guess this was a camping/outdoors focused paper line. I was really sad when this paper retired, but rest assured I got plenty of it so I could use the wood looking piece on many more projects!!

Thanks for stopping by today.  Now hop on over to Judy Faye's blog to see her fabulous creation!!
