If you have just hopped onto my blog, you can start here as this is a circular hop.  If you came from Sheri Ballantyne   then you are in the right place!

I am so in love with the new Jackson Paper Pack, I love the versatility and that it is so great for our many photos of the us at the lake.

When I read this months blog hop theme I thought it was perfect until I started creating and wanted to show off all my new goodies.
So I went to the Annual Inspirations book and the secondary layout for the pathfinding WOTG jumped out at me, right then I knew I was going to use that as my pattern to work from.

When I started cutting the pieces I originally had used only Jackson paper, the juniper in the aztec paper reminded me of the wood-grain on the seaside paper so I added a twist and replaced the jackson paper with seaside.

Here you can see some of the embellishments I used, When I saw the compliments for the Jackson PP it reminded me of the My Crush Wildwood assortment Seen in the Annual Inspirations Book on Page 153. I dug it out and sure enough some of the pieces had the same designs.  I used the Picture my Life cards in jackson for the title and then I cut a few up for embellishments as well. 
 I also was testing out my new cuttle bug with the wood-grain embossing folder (page 179.) on Cocoa card stock, I love the way it brings in the cabin feel.  

Check out the hidden journalling box, I used the new authentic life stamp, and the Jackson WOTG stamp to embellished it along with the file folder tab from the My Crush Wildwood assortment. 

here are the products I used:
