Happy Anniversary To Me...And A Story For You...

Have you ever had an experience that was just so wonderful you wished you could share it with everyone you knew? I had that happen during one of our family trips to Disneyland. I remember the four of us (it was quite a long time ago) standing in front of the castle watching the most beautiful fireworks show I'd ever seen. The music, the lights, the sheer excitement of the whole thing brought tears to my eyes. Yes, I do cry at silly things...just ask my husband. But what I remember most was wishing my whole family could be there to experience the same feelings I was having at that moment.

Just over a year later, I did get my wish. My brother and his wife got married in San Diego and held their reception at Disneyland. My whole baby, new sister, new family members...all stood there that night and experienced a great show of Disney magic. I quietly watched their faces and heard the ooh's and ahh's from the crowd. I felt so content knowing I was finally able to share that wonderful experience I had from the previous trip.

So why am I sharing this with you today? Four years ago, I made one of the best decisions for myself...I became a Close To My Heart Consultant! Happy Anniversary to Me! And I'm sharing because of a wonderful opportunity available to you in a couple of days.

May is National Scrapbooking Month. To celebrate this, CTMH is offering a wonderful kit called "You and Me" to help you preserve your cherished memories! And if you've ever had any thoughts on joining my team and this fantastic company, May is the month to do it. Not only will you receive a "You and Me" kit in your Consultant kit for free, but you'll also receive your Consultant kit at HALF PRICE! That's only $64.50! Whether you're looking for a way to earn extra money, a discount on your personal crafting supplies, or simply cannot pass up a good deal, May is sure to be the start of your own wonderful experiences you'll want to share with others!

PS: As a side note, I know I've been missing/not posting much for quite some time. We've been anticipating some changes here in our household and unfortunately crafting has taken a backseat to other demands. I don't know how long this will last, but I'm crossing my fingers it will be over shortly!

What a quick and easy way to add a little bling to your layouts. I think I'll have to embellish my Grand Canyon layout with some of those Sparkles. Remember the photos I shared of our blizzard the first day of Spring? Here's the layout I created so we'll never forget...though I doubt we ever would:

I think a few Sparkles sprinkled about the pages would give it a nice embellished finished. Interested in becoming a Studio J member and getting caught up on your scrapping? Smiley from Now is a perfect time to try it!

Studio J: Volcano!

I know what you're thinking..."Another studio layout?" Smiley from What happened to the girl who loves ink and paper?! Well...she's been feeling under the weather and this has really been the only way she's been able to have any sort of creative outlet for a while. You know how I'm always letting you know why I love Studio J? Well, it turns out I have another don't have to leave bed to get a layout done!

I think I picked up something over Spring Break. What about that whole "what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas" thing? That doesn't cover head colds and tummy troubles? Fine. Just let me stay in bed with the blinds closed.

But before I crawl back to my santuary, I'll share something we did on our last night in Vegas. We had dinner at a great place called KGB in Harrah's...yummy burgers, by the way...before heading out to catch the volcano erupting across the street at The Mirage. The boys weren't sure we were telling the truth when we said Vegas had it's own volcano, but they thought it was totally awesome when the lights and fire started!

If you haven't tried Studio J yet, or have only played around a little, this month would be a good one to dive in and get those photos scrapped! CTMH is offering a FREE package of Sparkles and Opaques Pearls to Studio J members for every 10 layouts they purchase this month! What a great way to add some bling to your creations!
