My Creations Memory Game

Look...two posts in two days!

CTMH has this awesome product called the My Creations Memory Game. One of the things I love most about being a CTMH Consultant is the amazing ideas that fellow consultants come up with for our products. Although I'm sure the original intention was that this product be used to create memory matching games for children, the things I have seen done with this box over the past few months are so creative!

A few months ago, my club decided that they wanted to spend one of our meetings working on making their own games. Although each girl came up with their own use for the boxes, they all came out wonderful. I am so excited to share my take on this project with you!

I first decided that I wanted to do this when I went to CTMH Convention in Anaheim last summer. During an event called Extravaganza, fellow consultant Sara Batkin shared with us this creative take on the Memory Game. Ever since I saw her project, I knew that I had to make one of my own.

The photo I used was taken by me a few years ago at Animal Kingdom in Orlando. I love tigers, and I think this picture was perfect for this project. The paper pack I used is a retired pack called "Expedition." I have been hanging onto this paper for the longest time, and I am so glad I had it when I was ready to make this box.

I hope you like what I did with my memory game!!!

So, so, so sorry!

I have been a very bad blogger over the past few months. Despite the fact that I have done some crafting, and I even took pictures of my projects, I just never managed to find the time to actually write my blog posts.

For those of you who have been worried, I am so sorry! I promise I am okay. I've been insanely busy with work and classes, but I am fine. Things seem to have calmed down a bit, so I'm ready to get back into the blogging world. I would like to commit to doing at least one post a week, but I can't promise it will always happen. I can promise that I am going to do my best to be a better blogger in 2012 so please hang with me!
