3rd: Kathleen -- kstopps@mchsi.com -- That's Amore Card Pair

I am so excited to say that this month marks my TWO YEARS with CTMH!!! First, I want to say how much I have truly enjoyed being a part of what Close To My Heart offers to scrapbookers and card-makers alike.

A few of my favorite things about CTMH:

1. The amazing (& quality) products they bring us in literally ALL of their Idea Books (three times a year!)
2. The awesome deals that they give not only their consultants but their customers, as well!
3. New friendships that I have made with other consultants AND my customers!
4. The inspiration to keep on creating and challenging my creative abilities.
5. Resources and knowledge from some of the most creative women in the world to help my creativity grow.

These are just a few of the things that I have gained from having CTMH as a part of my life and I know that as I continue with them, I will continue to grow in my creative abilities.

Here is a Slide Show of some of the art I have created with CTMH over the past 2 years... you will probably see some of my 'beginning' stuff.... but thats exciting! I have totally grown :) Enjoy!

Second, I want to throw out there that I am going to be giving away a little "Blog Candy" in honor of this little milestone! So for those of you who are as in love with CTMH and Scrapping and Stamping as I am, simply leave me a comment (along with your email addy) of why you love it so much and I will do a drawing for a lucky winner on the last day of the month (at midnight of course!).

So now you are thinking, oooohhhh what will it be! Well... I have a LOT of goodies around... some handcrafted, as well as some fun little pieces that will go great on your cards or layouts! So definitely check back for a sneak peak of what the winner will walk away with :)
