A Visit to Utah and a Creative Close to my Heart Layout for my Pen Pal Adventure Book

A Visit to Utah and a Creative Close to my Heart Layout for my Pen Pal Adventure Book

Close to my Heart-Utah

My friend Kim and I went to Utah a while back for a Close to my Heart convention and I just sent her a Pen Pal Adventure Book to share our memory of the trip. 

She is a consultant with the company so I thought she would appreciate that I used only Close to my Heart paper crafting supplies to craft the layout.

Getting creative through paper crafting has always been a stress relieving outlet for me so I really enjoyed taking my time with this project.

My favorite aspect of the layout is the double flip flaps that open up to a cut out photo of Kim and I sitting on top of the Close to my Heart wall in front of their building.

If you would like some of these flip flaps for your layout pages, here's the link: https://kimwolff.closetomyheart.com/retail/Product.aspx?ItemID=9342 

Salt Lake Utah by Plane Plane over the Rocky Mountains-Shelly

As for my visit to Utah, I can't wait to go back when I have more time to explore the outdoors!  Flying over those salt lakes was breathtaking!  (As was flying over the Rocky Mountains!!!)

I can only imagine what it would feel like to walk on that lake of salt.  Ironically, I was raised in Syracuse, New York - dubbed the 'Salt City'... maybe that's why it excited me so much to fly above such a lake.
