Close to My Heart Convention

This video shows highlights from the 2011 Close To My Heart Convention. This year it was held in Anaheim. I didn't go this year, but have been to two past conventions and found it to be an amazing experience. A couple thousand scrapping women in one place for a few days of inspiration, creativity and motivation.

Next year's convention will be in Dallas. If you want to go, consider joining my team. If you want to teach others how to craft and help them find fabulous supplies, or if you just want to buy your own goodies at a great discount, you will find becoming an independent consultant a great bargain. You can get more detail and sign up by clicking here.

The first step in signing up gets you $280 worth of products for just $99!

Grand Prix Museum

I made these great layouts so quickly with Studio J. They use the Game On paper pack. On-line scrapbooking is so convenient for pages like this where you want to squeeze in a lot of pictures.

I am a racing fan from way back, and on a recent business trip in England, I had the good fortune to come across this wonderful museum. I was blown away by all the cars they had on display. So much history.
