Pictures from Washington DC


Last Thursday I had my teams unit meeting where I shared with my team some of the wonderful things coming from Close to My Heart in the near future. During the next few posts, I thought I would share some of the fun details with you. So...

Upon arrival to DC I was barely able to check into my hotel room at the Gaylord National Harbor hotel in order to go on a wonderful Photo Safari throughout the sites of DC. We met up at 8pm with Mr. David. Here is giving us the low down on how to use our cameras in dark settings. The class was started shortly before it got dark outside that way we could still see the settings on our cameras :). Smart thinking. Pretty soon we started our tour and were abl
e to practice taking pictures in the dark at some of the best places in DC.







What is cool about these last two pictures is that these were the last stops that we made on our tour. These pictures were taken around midnight. It was so neat to see how the pictures look like they were taken during the day time. I'm sure you all already knew how to do this but it was new to me and so cool. Yes, I know - it's the little things :).

The next morning was our Leadership day. This convention day is available for all Managers and above. Here is a picture of the Scattered Hearts team that was able to attend on Leadership Day.

Close to My Heart never does anything half hearted. Their presence was definately known and celebrated!!!

Hostess Club rocks!

Tonight was my hostess club here at my home. We had a hilariously funny night with a ton of laughter, tears, and creating. I don't think I have laughed so hard in months. It was a great time had by all. In the midst of the laughter we created an Event Calendar. This calendar is one that you write all the dates that you need to remember that do not change from year to year like birthdays and anniversaries. Here is what they looked liked when we finished. Enjoy!

Scrap Happy

I have been wanting to post pictures and all the happenings of last week in Washington DC at our annual Close to My Heart convention. Hopefully I can soon but in the mean time I wanted to share a layout I created today.

I created this layout for an upcoming Scrapbook extravaganza called Scrap Happy. You can find the basic information for the event here to the right on my side bar. This is a fun event where several different scrapbooking and stamp vendors come together to give you a chance to see whats new in the industry, take classes to learn new techniques and crop the day away. My layout will be giving a taste of Close to My Heart using over 7 of products to create this one layout. Here is another picture showing how the layout is interactive.


Come join me at the Scrap Happy in Nashville on September 11th. I would love to see some happy, familiar faces!

CTMH Scrappin Ladies



Enjoy this video of the corporate Close To My Heart chicks!!! This is just a little taste of what I experienced while at convention! The best part - the VP of Training, Events and Consultant Services and the VP of Marketing and Sales were the leaders of this awesome dance. With leaders like this, laughter and fun is always in store! (Good thing there good at the business side too!)
