The Make-A-Plate party was a hit. Here's a couple pictures of some of the plates that were stamped. These are the papers only... as soon as the real plates come back to me, I'll post some of those pictures. They always look a little better as real plates.

The card layout is from Originals and is called Center Charms. I liked how the CTMH staff dressed it up by stamping directly on the B&T paper, adding sparkles, etc. I copied the design for one of my recent card workshops.
I even used it for a Father's Day card for my Dad (minus the stamping and sparkles).
Here it is again as a boy birthday card. So versatile! All I did was change up the papers a little bit for each card.

One Lovely Blog Award
This is so cool! A fellow Close To My Heart consultant and blogger - Liz - has given me two blog awards! Thanks Liz!
So, I'm supposed to pass both of these awards on.
The Lemonade Stand award is for blogs that show great attitude and gratitude. The One Lovely Blog award is sort of self-explanatory, I think. I'm supposed to pass these on to other blogs. I am passing these awards on to:
1. Misty is such a dear friend and Close To My Heart consultant. She lives far away from me and I miss her. Her blog is great and her creations are even better! Check it out!
2. Vickie is a friend of mine that I just discovered is into papercrafting as much as I am! Yay!
3. Tiffany has a great blog. Full of beautiful artwork. Just love it.

Well, obviously, I didn't win (I wasn't even in the Top 5) or I would have told you about it by now! It was fun to try, though, and I still *really* like this card. The tiny white flowers are brads from the Mini-Medley Accents White Daisy collection. The centers of the flowers are tiny little rhinestones. I think this would make a great Mother's Day card!

Anyway, I just wanted to share some pictures that I took on my recent trip to Phoenix to the Close To My Heart Regional Celebration. I traveled there with my friend and downline, Misty Leach. We had the best time and feel energized about our businesses. Best of all, we got to meet the founder of Close To My Heart, Jeanette Lynton. She is SO nice and accomodating. She took time to take pictures with us and chat with us about our business. She was very encouraging. Here's me with Jeanette:
...and here's me with Jeanette and my downline, Misty Leach. We were thrilled to meet Jeanette!
Jeanette Lynton has a blog, too. She recently posted some of her own pictures of the Phoenix Regional Celebration, and I'm in the picture (well, from the back)! You can see my short brown hair and fuschia shirt in the second picture. It looks like I'm working VERY hard on something!
It was a great weekend of learning, paper crafting and meeting lots of great people. Definitely worth the time and money!
