PAPER POUCH ALBUM

 How cute is this?
Angela Tutton was kind enough to share this
 "My Creations Pouch Album"
 she received from her upline, Naomi Smith,
 as a convention gift. 
 It was decorated in the theme of our
Close to My Heart Convention this year called VIVA.
 Each page also has a pull out tab
 that can hold additional photos or journaling.












Thanks Angela for sharing!

HAPPY CREATING!

 the Close to My Heart  Chantilly paper pack (X7163B). 
 These elements can actually be used on cards,
 papercrafts and scrapbook pages.





Getting some ideas?  Give them a try!

OPERATION SMILE - DISPLAY BOARD

I was lucky enough to win the bid for this
 Display Board at
Close to My Heart's Operation Smile Auction
 at Convention in Orlando in June.  We raised over $20,000 at the auction from our consultants.  That means several kids can have facial surgeries and new smiles!

I was also recognized as the 4th highest donation contributor to
 Operation Smile from Close to My Heart for last year. 
 Thanks to all my customers for all the times
 you rounded up your sales tickets. 
 Thanks to everyone that supports my January
Operation Smile Crop and Auction.
  It's because of you that we all make a difference
 in the lives of so many children.


THANK YOU!

SCRAPBOOK ELEMENTS- SURF'S UP

Each month I participate in a
 Scrapbook Elements Exchange for items  that can be used
 on my scrapbook pages.  This month it was Surf's Up. 
 These elements include circular frames, borders,
 titles ,6"x 6" page, banners, dimensional elements, joiurnaling spots, envelopes and so much more by some very talented ladies.  






To view larger, just click on the picture.

I hope this gives you some suggestions
 on ways to embellish your scrapbook pages (or cards and crafts).

Happy Creating!
