CLOSE TO MY HEART CONVENTION 2013






Well we are here at Coronado Springs in Disneyland!
We have gotten the Autumn Winter Idea book and boy is it exciting to see all that is new with CTMH.  There is always so many new things shared at General Session which is first thing every morning.  Then we go to lunch then to the next session and so on.  By the time we return to our room in the evening we are on overload and it is hard to find a good place to start.  But the idea book is a great
thing to show you.
The next exciting news is this!
 






With oodles of images in each of 15 layout themes, you can create several coordinating pages for each theme using just two keys and one dial size.  More info later.
 
Well you can do this with the new cartridge!
But more later about that...
Next
 
New Home Decor Wood frames
Then there is
Base and bling where you can create your own jewelry

 
There is so much more to show you but I have to save some for tomorrow

If you  haven't notice at the top left hand column is a counter gadget telling that I have 6 days until Convention.  For you Disney fans, convention this year is at the Disney’s Coronado Springs® Resort.  I will leave on Tuesday for Tampa to see my boys and then on to Disney on Wednesday.  Since I have just a few days before I leave I am asking that you please bring your order with you on Saturday or place it no later than Sunday.  I will need to spend Monday evening packing and getting ready to leave.  I thank you in advance for helping with this.
WOW this is a really long post!
 
Make sure to keep checking my blog throughout the week next week starting on Thursday to see what is going on.   I will be back on Sunday the 30th with new idea book in hand.
