September Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  We will be featuring September's SOTM, which is Family is Forever, a set of seven stamps.  If you have come here from Mary Eisen's Blog, you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around.  If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants on Melinda’s Blog:

This month we have 80 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's SOTM and other great CTMH products on their blogs. This is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go!

I was inspired to use the new CTMH Designed Decor Shadow Box Z2015 on a collage wall my husband and I are creating. My plan is to change out the layout for each season. I love how this Fall layout turned out using the Family is Forever stamp set. A special thanks to Sarah Paige-Gruber for the inspiration for the top right corner design.
