CTMH - What a Privilege!

As a consultant for Close To My Heart, one of the perks that we have is our own message board system. I love the swaps board, and I have had the privilege of participating in a Christmas layout contribution for parents of premature babies in Alaska. I consider this to be such an honor, and have been blessed in so many ways as I've worked on these layouts. One of my fears is that my work is never quite good enough, or tacky or cheesy. I'm posting the layouts here (yes, I have used a combination of CTMH products as well as "other" products) for these pages; I would appreciate any comments as well as constructive criticism.

CTMH - Has it Been a Month?! Introducing Stampaganza

I don't even know where this month has gone. It has swooshed by, and I just realized that there are only 8 (count em') e-i-g-h-t more weeks until 2009 is over with. Wow!

And... with the new month comes a new promotion that you're going to just love! Stamaganza is here again -- buy 2 stamp sets and get the 3rd one for FREE!!! "This promotion—buy two stamp sets, get one free—is a singular opportunity to make gift giving more fun and more affordable. Tell your friends, your family, your customers—you might even want to tell Santa Claus!
Please note that the free item (or items) will be the lowest-priced stamp sets of the entire order, regardless of the value of other stamp sets purchased. "

CTMH - Regional Celebration in Minneapolis, MN

I will be heading out to MN tomorrow evening (early) with Keeley Kirwan to attend Regionals. Can I just say...... I AM SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO JAZZED!!!!! So much to do, to see, to learn. I can't wait. Plus, I'll get to meet other consultants who I've conversed with, but not officially "met in person".

The great part is that I'll be able to bring back new techniques and projects to share with my wonderful hostesses and customers!!! It's gonna be a blast...

CTMH - ANOTHER Moon Doggie Layout

OK, I admit it. I'm totally addicted to this paper. Yes, we have new papers for fall and winter....but, I guess I'm not ready to give up my hold on Summertime! So...last night was a night with sticky, inky fingers and a 2-page layout... Oh yeah, forgot to mention, I lifted this layout from another consultant, but did quite a bit of modifications

CTMH - Loss of Loved Ones

I realized this morning that I haven't blogged for a while. Life has gotten in the way, which sometimes, it tends to do.

Last week, we lost a very special person who passed away unexpectedly. His name was Gene Holcomb, and he was a wonderful man. Then, this Tuesday, we were forced to put our beloved pet Bandit to sleep for a congentive spinal column disorder.

Bandit and Gene were a lot alike. They both loved unconditionally, and made you feel as if you were the most important person in their life. I shall miss them both terribly.

I'm posting their pictures here today, but have plans to scrap memorial layouts on the both of them.
