Lucy Workshop on the Go


The Close to my Heart Postcard contest had me thinking about other great events I had not focused on in my Scrapbooking...I am usually much more interested in preserving memories of Nathan and family, Jessi, or Derek rather than my activities...But I couldn't resist these fun pictures of some of my team and I at Detroit Regionals last year!

More Lucy WOTG projects!

With the left over paper from my WOTG, I completed the online project of a mini banner!  It is so easy since the shapes are all pre-cut with the CTMH Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge!  The felt alphabet it alread sticky and the whole thing is embellished with the left over rub-ons from the Lucy Compliments!

Convention Contest Entry!






 Imagine my surprise when Close To My Heart started sending information about this year's convention in Dallas and I was in the pictures! One of them even had the postcard on our photo!  Of course I had to print those off of the web. 
   It sparked memoried of my first year going to convention at Disneyland, as a director!  I was able to participate in more of a leadership role by speaking during one of the presentations, I moved with a group during Extravanza, passing out free products at the end of each demonstration, and loved sitting right up front during open sessions in my reserved seat! 
   I remember the director's dinner and trip to Disneyland's World of Color completely thanks to Close To My Heart!  My most exciting moment came when my name was  announced  during the awards ceremony and I was called to the stage!  I earned an award for top Straight to the Heart recruits in the U.S! 
   It was a whirlwind trip of learning, excitement, and fun!  It made me wonder what will happen this July in Dallas?   Can anything top last year? Here is my attempt at the first challenge for convention-a layout that includes my postcard inviting me to convention.  But mine shares the memories from last year!  Now it is just time to count down the days to Dallas!

Disney and Superhero paper


Who knew you could use the Superhero paper pack for really cute disney pages!   You can load up the layout with lots of photos, especially when you add the flip flaps! I used a 6"x6" and 6" x 12" flip flap on the left hand page.   The bottom photo is how it looks with the flaps "closed".
