Open House Fun and Photos CTMH Scrapbooking in Melbourne, Florida

I finally downloaded the photos from last Saturday's Close To My Heart Open House. I never seem to take enough photos! I get so involved in greeting friends, showing them all the new loot, eating (tee hee), laughing and gabbing.....maybe next time I'll have a designated photo taker, right?

The beautiful lady on the right is my first CTMH downline, Harmony. You have never met a sweeter, kinder gal than Harmony. You should see her wedding photos - wow! Talk about glamorous! And to top it all off, she is a hula dancer!!! What more can I say about Harmony? The gal next to her is one of her friends, Miranda, who we were all lucky to meet last Saturday. In the background is my best friend Rindy. I could not pull of these Open Houses without Rindy. She is always there to help and support me. I could not ask for a better friend. Thank you , Rindy!

Here's a photo of some of the items on display. The circle cards are a great deal - it's a card kit with everything you need except adhesive! You get twelve circle cards, twelve envelope flats, foam squares and organdy ribbon, all for just $14.95! You can order it here and have it deliveredlittle chipboard album directly to your home. There's also a cute little purses card kit which is retiring this year - I need to get one while I can!

See the little album to the right of the circle cards? That's my precious neice Stephanie on the cover, and throughout the book. This is one of the best deals around. You get six unique chipboard pages with different edge treatments (brackets, scallops, 'postage stamp' - so cute) for just $5.95! And it is the same size as our acrylic album, so you can mix and match the pages. How cool is that!!

There are lots of new items in the book. I think my favorite is this package of 27 adorable chipboard buttons for just $3.50! How can you beat that! They coordinate so well with the new papers, especially Twitterpated!

Finally, I was thrilled that Stephanie was the grand prize winner! She won all twelve Stamp of the Month sets from 2009, all tucked into a My Acrylix organizer. wooHOOO! Doesn't she look

as happy as the proverbial clam? I can't wait to see her creations. She's relatively new to all this crafty fun, so you KNOW she is going to have a blast! Congratulations, Steph!!!

Well, there are too many new products to mention, but you can take a look for yourself here. That's right, the entire new Idea Book is online in case you don't have yours.

Did I mention the cute little Heart-felt die cuts? Chocolate felt squirrels, hedgehogs and Bambi!!!!! Oh my!!!

Wow, great photos, what you got. You are right about needing a designated photographer. On a side note: I finished the linen closet tonight. Woo Hoo. Let me know when you finish your project and we can pick another one.

Hi, friend! I'm playing catch up and oohing and aahing over all you've been up to this past week. Great cards and an obviously FUN open house. Good for you! I'm so glad to be back in the swing of things and thankful for those of you who were so tolerant while I was MWW, as in Missing With Wedding. LOL. Have a great week!
