So Many Things To Get Excited About!


What a week it was! Trying to get back in the swing of things after Spring Break has been a bit challenging! Anyway, it is the weekend and I have high hopes of spending time outside with my fmaily AND playing with some of the BRAND NEW PRODUCT that appears in the Close To My Heart SUMMER 2009 Idea Book!

Yep! You read correctly, the Summer Idea Book is coming out on May 1st and you are going to LOVE it! Here is what the cover looks like!

CTMH has created a Scrapbook and Share Artwork Contest! As another fun way to celebrate National Scrapbook Month (May), Close To My Heart created a website,, that you can visit to share your artwork and win Close To My Heart products. To participate in the Scrapbook and Share contest, simply send Close To My Heart a JPEG image of a two-page layout that highlights you in some way to You can begin entering now and all the way through May 31. Along with your submission, you’ll want to share why the layout highlights you. At the end of May, finalists will be selected from all of the entries, and you and your customers will be able to vote for your favorites. The winners in each category will receive $150 US retail in Close To My Heart products. To access the website and read all the details about the Scrapbook and Share contest, click on the link on the left side of my blog (cute pink flower) or visit To enter the contest, send your scrapbook layouts to! Don't forget that the "Tickled Pink" special is in full swing. You can earn this kit for FREE by placing a minimum $60 stamp order or hosting your own party! It's too good to miss!

I would like to take this time to personally invite you to the Mexican Fiesta Party I will be hosting on SATURDAY, MAY 2nd at the Ashley River Fire House on Dorchester Road (next to BOSCH). We will begin promptly at 10:00 a.m. I will be highlighting the SUMMER Idea Book. You will have the opportunity to create a card from the NEW Card Program Jeanette has published AND for those who would like to keep the fun going you are invited to register for a fun workshop using the very cool NEW 4 x 6 Binder to create a "My 10 Wishes" album! This workshop will take place immediately following the party! The workshop will be offered at a discount in honor of National Scrapbooking Day (which is actually on May 2nd!).

More Deatails will be coming very soon! Please be sure to r.s.v.p on time to guarentee your spot at the workshop! You can start registering TODAY!

Lastly, be sure to visit "CTMH TV" on my website ( and check out the show that we published this past Tuesday. You will see one of the 4 x 6 binders that we created at the Album Retreat in January. This will give you an idea of what the binder looks like. I love these little albums. They are perfect for gifts and even home decor (place a few in a fun container or basket and place on your coffee table!)! Check out Jeanette's Blog (you can click to it right from this blog-just look for it on the left side), as well, to get a sneak peek at the new Card Confidence Progam "Wishes." It is ALL GOOD and SO EXCITING!

Make it a great day!
