Over 6 weeks ago, I received this chipboard card in an envelope inviting me to the Close To My Heart Convention in Dallas. When I received it, I hadn't yet decided if I was making the trek to Convention this year. I laid the card on the shelf. Within a few days of receiving the card, I made the monumental decision to not only attend Convention, but to also apply to be a presenter at Extravaganza. For those of you who have never been to a Convention, Extravaganza is a terrific 4 hours where we learn all about the new products from fellow Consultants. Part of the application requirement was to complete a 1 to 2 minute presentation video. I remembered that post card laying on the shelf and thought it would be a great way to open my video. After completing all the necessary requirements for application, the post card went back to the shelf. A week or so ago, CTMH announced a contest called Lasso a Stamp Set. The contest is to complete an scrapbook layout incorporating that infamous post card. WhooWho...mine was still laying on the shelf! Another requirement was that you had to be signed up to attend Convention.
As an aside...in order to attend the CTMH Conventions (this year's is in Dallas) you must be a Consultant. There is a great deal this month...if you sign up to be a Consultant during March, you will receive the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge Bundle as a part of your package. If you already have the cartridge set, you can elect to receive $100 in select product credit. WHAT A DEAL! :o) There is still time, if you have ever considered becoming a Consultant, now is the time. Send me a message and we can discuss the opportunity.
Anyway, I set out to make my layout and here it is...
Just for the fun of it, I'm including my Extravaganza Presentation Video. Now that I have the right camera I think I'll get back to doing YouTube videos. I enjoyed making that one awhile back about watercolors.
