Close To My Heart makes it very easy for each individual consultant to create a business plan that works for her. In my case one of the things I love to do is make a scrapbook kit every month. I call it "take out" because everything you need is included in the kit. Usually all you have to do is get out your adhesive and a scissors to trim a few things here and there. These layouts are in my latest kit.

There are three layouts in this kit because I was just having too much fun with this paper pack. Normally there are only two layouts in a kit BUT I just couldn't stop. These papers seem to go with EVERYTHING in my pictures. Hopscotch is a must have paper!!

Sometimes it's hard to imagine these layouts with pictures but I like to photograph them that way for those who want to use their imagination!! Here are the two layouts above with the pictures added.

It's so easy to add five horizontal photos ... no trimming or anything.

These pictures are actually tacked down because I have a LOT of flip flap plans with this layout.

I could never pick a favorite layout, but here are some of my favorite embellishment combos. 

Gotta love those sparkly puffy flowers.
I used my mini stapler to tack down this flaxen twine - cute.
Sequins? Yes Please!!

Just stickers but that little bit of twine ... perfect.
The following products are the retiring items that are featured ... the Hopscotch Paper Packet and Hopscotch ComplementsFlaxen Twine & Junebug Puffies
