Close to my Heart Convention 2015

I know I haven't posted much artwork lately.  I have been deep in my craft preparing for all of the fun to be had at convention this year.
I decided to enter the CTMH Layout Contest and be apart of the Consultant Showcase at CTMH's Convention in Anaheim, CA at the Disneyland Hotel.   
What is Consultant Showcase you ask?  That is a fun night where consultants get to show off their artwort and share tips and techniques that can be passed onto our cutomers like you.  It is really fun to see everyone's artwork and learn from other consultants. 
Unfortunately, I can't post any pictures of what I have been working on until after convention.  I promise to share all of the fun with you when I get back.  I can't wait to hang out with all of my Close to my Heart friends and see all of the brand new product that will be released September.
Convention starts Wednesday with Leadership Day followed by a fun night playing Bunco with our team.  I am so excited!
 Saturday I get to run through both Disneyland and California with all of my fellow CTMH consultants to raise money for CTMH's Operation Smile.  I will have a fun outfit on that I will share pictures with you as well.  It will make you laugh for sure!!

I know a lot of you are traveling the world enjoying your summers.  I will be traveling to Colorado in a week to visit family and get away for a bit and then I am off to California to be with my Scrap Besties.

Remember to take lots of picture of you and your family.  Celebrate those special moments.  When you get back we will get those beautiful photos in an album and share our stories while reliving those fun memories.

See you soon and have fun this summer. 

Your Scrap Coach,

Chalk It Up Card

I have a couple of graduations coming up this weekend.  I think I might use some Chalk It Up paper and make some grad cards.  Time sure does fly for kids.  Mine will be graduating next year.  Crazy!

So here is a fun card I made using CTMH's Chalk It Up.  This would make a great card for a teenager.  Maybe my daughter can give them to her friends.

I love how the teal shimmer trim sparkles on my card.  Fun and easy to make.

Supplies used are all CTMH:

Paper:  Calk It Up, White Daisy CS, Flaxen CS
Stamps:  You Mean the World to Me
Inks:  Black
Embellishment:  Teal Shimmer Trim, Calk It Up assortment
Other:  Shin Shan markers - color in the HAPPY flag
