Always a Bridesmaid, Never a Bride

At each event Close To My Heart offers several contests. I am proud to say that this time I entered all three: essay, layout and cube. While I place in the Top for my projects, I didn't take home any prizes. It is great to be able to say though that those that won deserved it! My dear Nona took home first place for the layout, Kelly Enlgish-Triggs without doubt received first for the cube contest and Michelle Nist (who doesn't have a blog...yet) wrote an amazing essay.
I may not have won first place, but that is more than okay since I get to go home with a layout that I love. The house is first in my mind for most things lately and both contest entries are proof positive. You can click on the images to see them in full size and read the journaling.

This was my entry using Close To My Hearts new My Creations Cube. The contest was to think outside the cube. I thought that this would be unique enough, however the funny thing is that one of my sideline team members created a house too. Mine opens and serves as a gift box and hers was left open in the gables giving access to a kleenex box. Great minds think alike :)


  1. Christine,
    Your layout is awesome. Too bad they could only pick one, because yours is definitely a winner. It was so nice meeting you and Nona at retreat. Hope to see you again.

  2. It is gorgeous Christine, and great journaling.

  3. Fabulous layout Christine!! Love the little house!!

  4. I love your layout! And I'm really glad to see that you decided to enter it into the contest!
