I fell off the end of the earth but I did come back!

Wow, what a month.  Filled with great family time and creative time!  I spent time getting ready for my open house which was August 24th.  If you were able to come, I am so glad you were here!  If you missed it, well, we missed you!  But you will all get to see the new Fall Idea Book beginning September 1st.

I have been making cards, layouts and gifts using the new stamps and paper packets and I love it all.  That is one reason I became a consultant afterall, I love the products and I get early access to them!  Contact me to receive your new idea book!

One of the most amazing places I have been!

This is the 14th year our church has come to Esperanza on the West Coast of Vancouver island for a missions work week.  We build, paint, cook, clean, and repair...on the outside.  Last night we learned that the history of this place goes on beyond Esperanza and was referred to in the native languages by a word that meant "liver".  The cleansing of the body occurs in the liver and this is truly a cleansing place, for those who come just to work for a week and those who come to find respite and healing from family tragedies during the counseling weeks.  How can you not find cleansing when you look out and see this as far as you can see?

Sometimes I think there should be a rule, for me, that I can't go back to a place until I have scrapbooked the memories from the previous time we have been there.  And then, I don't like that rule when I have the opportunity to travel to a place again and in fact, I haven't scrapbooked the photos and don't know if I will have time in the near future.  This is my story for Disney.  In the spring of 2004, we went to Disney World for a couple of days and in the Fall of 2006, we went to Disneyland with another family.  I did sidestep the rule that time because we really were going to two separate places. 

Now, I am in a bind...  Next year the Close to My Heart convention is at Disneyland.  I am so excited!  Of course my entire family wants to go and partake in the magic of it all!  But, I still haven't put those earlier memories to paper and enjoyed reliving them with my family.  So luckily I have a year and Zippidee paper packet.  (And a daughter who is now old enough and loves to scrapbook to help me make it happen!)  Enjoy the beginning of our work in the photos below.  I don't think it will take me an entire year to get them done because of the awesome products I have to work makes it so much fun.

August is here!

Wow, we are in the middle of summer already.  We have had so many adventures that I need to share about.  I have also been doing a lot of creating and enjoying some new product from CTMH Fall Winter Idea book.  So much fun.

But, let's go back and start with August.  The stamp of the month is a gorgeous large daisy like flower.  It is fun to stamp in several different color schemes.  I chose the color scheme of the Cherry - O paper and used the cards shown by CTMH for my inspiration. 

To see other color schemes for this floral set, visit the consultant blog hop beginning here
