Awesome Rising Hearts Team!

The Rising Hearts Team is such an awesome group of CTMH consultants! I want to take this opportunity to thank them in this forum for all of their dedication and hard work this year. This picture shows all of the boxes containing fun goodies that were sent out during convention to all of the team's annual award recipients. I felt so proud as I packed them up and you all deserve a huge pat on the back! Enjoy!

For My Team...

There is something incredibly satisfying about surrounding yourself with papers, inks, and an assortment of bling as you set out to create for someone special. That's precisely how I felt prior to convention when I began to craft a little something for my "first string" team members who were in Anaheim with me!
Our journal is so simple and fun to create as it features a clear pocket on the front that holds a 5"x7" piece of artwork. With that size canvas, you can create to your heart's content! I even used a pattern from our Wishes card book for inspiration!
Papers from the Sophia collection provide sweet, summer colors and before I could say "bibbidi-bobbidi-boo", I had completed the journal covers!
Note that the background has added texture with dry-embossed lines that have been sanded and many of the papers have added depth with sponged edges.
With an accordion-folded flower, a little button, and a few stamped images, the piece came to life just like magic! Check out the quote, a saying that was woven throughout our convention experience... "A dream is a wish your heart makes..."  Enjoy!

Matterhorn Madness!

Ready to roll!!!
Thought I would share some of the fun and excitement that we enjoyed at Disneyland prior to the fun and excitement of convention!!!
Here we are, my daughter and I, strapped in and ready to roll on the Matterhorn ride. This ride is one of her top favorites and it was only going to be open the first day we were there before being closed for renovation! We just HAD to make sure that we made time for the thrill of tearing through the mountain and being surprised by the abominable snowman!!!
It was awesome! In fact, with that day being early admission for resort guests, we rode the Matterhorn TWICE before you could blink an eye! Disneyland is simply on of our favorite places to be... the happiest place on earth!
