Trinket wood heart that has been stamped in black with the polka dot
flower from C1540 Hello Blooms.  Small lettering with Keyboard Kraft
Alphabet - Grey sparkle in the middle of a button.

D1540 In the background stripe
stamped in White Daisy on Juniper CS
I took advantage of the slower drying time and
blended out the seam with a Kleenex
Red Glitter Gems in the center of Black buttons

Solid honeycomb stamp from C1537 Honeycomb stamped in Crystal Blue, Lagoon and Pacifica
Very graphic layout - out of my comfort zone!
Washi Tape banner on Bakers Twine- tedious but worth the effort! More wooden shapes and Kraft alphabet

One of my cards featuring the April Stamp of the Month and Surfs Up for my April Card Class.  I LOVE our new
Glitter Paper, it cuts beautifully on the Cricut!  I cut it in narrow strips for this card so one sheet will do for all my classes.

Album Retreat and Much More!

My table mates - Michelle Nist - Studio J contest winner!
She and her customers ordered 603 Studio J Layouts in Feb.!
Me and my upline, Karen Morris.
March has been a great month!  I made it a priority to attend the CTMH Album Retreat March 14-16th in Salt Lake City, and what a treat it was!  The album that CTMH designed and we created during those 2 days taught me a lot about some of the new products that I hadn't even noticed before, much less used.I tried some scrapbooking styles and new techniques that took me outside my comfort zone.  I'm happy to report that although I didn't finish my album at the retreat, I did finish it when I got home!  My new mantra is "practice imperfection" and one of my favorite new saying that was shared by our keynote speaker, Stacy Julian is "Tell the negative committee that meets inside your head to sit down and shut up!" ~ Ann Bradford

3 cards  - same layout, different paper.  Sorry the photo is blurry :o(

I had a tough time coming up with a design for my card class with the March Stamp of the Month.. Here is what I settled on.
I am in LOVE with Claire and the Girls Rock stamp set!!  This one is for my April Card Classes.
So far, So GREAT!

Hey everyone!  I'm super excited to be off to The CTMH Album Retreat in Salt Lake City!  I'm looking forward to spending time crafting with many of my CTMH sisters.  It's been interesting doing the "homework assignments"  which has been a journey of self exploration, what and who is important to me in my life.
