Open House Photos Scrapbooking in Melbourne, Florida

Happy weekend! Are you watching the Orlando Magic destroying the Cleveland Cavaliers? WoohOOO!!! Normally the only sports I take the time to watch are the Dodgers (no secret there, tee hee!). But while I was in G'ville with Alan this weekend, we watched one of the games and I got hooked again. Probably would not be watching if it was not the playoffs. If they win tonight, wooHOO!!!

Anyway, here are the photos I took from my Open House before anyone came and before the Cherry Diet Dr. Pepper Episode. So at least I have a few photos, although I would cherish photos of my friends who were there! But I followed Terri's advice not to use the camera till it dried out, and that was good advice. Look at my silly son in the photo above. Yes, those are chopsticks in his ears!!! The young lady is Angie, who I mentored for four years. That is a long story but I must tell you how proud I am of the progress she has made. Now that she is in college, I am currently mentoring her younger sister Nikki, who made a dramatic boost to her grades this year. She made such a great effort! And I also started mentoring Jessica, who is showing a lot of promise as well. Do you have an hour a week to help out a young lady? Let me know if you'd like to join me.

Close To My Heart's fantastic pattern books are displayed here, along with some new products and stamp sets. The rest are display boards for my workshops and classes for the next four months. Our Flamingo Gals group, headed by my uber-talented upline Annette, does a Stamp of the Month swap - well, we have done it for the last two Close To My Heart Idea Books. It's a great way to get our boards done with a variety of beautiful work!

Aimee won the grand prize - the CTMH distressing kit (featured on page 102 of our Idea book, or here. I also gave away six other prizes ranges from stamp sets to inks to sassy strands!

Let me know if you are interested in purchasing a kit for any of these projects. Instructions and long-distance training will be included (insert smiley-face here)!

CTMH's monthly Stamp of the Month Blog hop starts June 1. I'll have the schedule posted along with my project here on my blog June 1. We also have an EXCITING special in June - you'll hear about it from me soon!

I hope to see you then!

Deb, love the photos. I need to set up some boards for June and am struggling with the tender tags. I want to rename them terrible tags.

These are great photos, Deb. You really had some nice displays for your open house. Your layout is wonderful, too! Looks like your son, like my sons, isn't too old to get silly once in a while. Gotta love it!
