Well Hellllllooooo There!

This is my first post, which I have found very difficult to write.  It is kind of weird since I feel like I am talking to the whole world but in reality there probably isn't anyone reading this as of yet!! LOL!  Just to tell you a little about myself.  I am a relatively new consultant with Close To My Heart.  I signed up last October after spending a weekend with some of the best people at a Scrapbooking Retreat in upstate New York.  I have never had so much fun crafting!  I met some of the most amazing, creative and talented people.  It opened me up to a whole new world of paper crafting and even more amazing, creative and talented people :).  I have done scrapbooking before but after this weekend, I had the ability and confidence to make my pages so much more than they ever were before.  Here is one of the pages I made when I was there with the help of one of their program books, Magic.  These books show you exactly how to make a page from start to finish.  The other thing I love is CTMH's paper, it all coordinates, which makes it so easy to put a page together.  I added their really cool flip flaps to be able to add extra pics to my page layout and BAM!, it is done!  LOVE!!! 

Here is the layout I made that weekend:

It was so much fun and I am so thrilled that I made the decision to go to this weekend and that after this weekend, I decided to join such an amazing company.
