May Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

If you were here yesterday thanks for coming back! We had a very busy week and weekend in this house and I was unable to get my project and post up until tonight but I hope the wait was worth it!
My card also features the cute May stamp of the Month – Chairs to you! I used it to make a card for my cousins upcoming baby shower. She is expecting a little girl and that is why I chose to make the third chair girly and pink. Of course I have another cousin expecting a boy and now I think I will have to create her a similar card since this one turned out so cute! My scallop border was created using just the top portion of the same chair stamp as the pink chair. All of the paper used in this card is from the You and Me Kit available this month for National Scrapbooking Month.
Now that you have seen my card please visit

Dawn’s Blog and keep the hop going!

Where have I been?

It has been about three weeks since my last post and I have so much to share!! April is always my busiest month- with the Creativ Festival in Toronto, weekend retreats, and Regional Celebration there was so much to do! BUT- now I have tonnes to share so the next few weeks will be rich with photos and project ideas!

We had a fabulous time at Creativ Festival and if you had the chance to come by the booth we thank you! I already am looking forward to the fall show and all the exciting classes that I will be teaching there!

Happening at the same time was Regional Celebration (and just down the road!) This was event put on by Close to my Heart for consultants and it was amazing- the best regional I have ever been too!! We had great business classes, amazing create and takes and inspiration and motivation a-plenty!!
I was really excited as I was asked to teach a 10 minute technique spotlight on one of our products. I chose to do mine on Liquid Applique (stay tuned for more on this class later- for today a photo of me on stage will have to suffice!)

We also had awards- these were for the first quarter of this year (January- March). My team (the Brae-er’s) won 1st place in team sales for small teams- yeah us!!
My downline Audrey won 1st place for sales on her MyCTMH website- yeah to her!!

No artwork pictures yet- but say tuned (it is taking me some time to crop and resize them all!)
