Here are a few highlights!
Here's my little reason for scrapbooking!
Sammie was born in Jan of 2005, and I became a consultant (for the discount) April 1st.
The "waterfall card" I taught at my first gathering!
This Scrapbook in a box project put my name on the proverbial CTMH map. I created the tutorial for Virtual Convention 2005, and had over 10,000 views/requests for the tutorial over a period of about 3 years. My husband even gave it it's own website! (ps...I'm sorry - the website has been taken down, and I don't have a tutorial to share any more!)
Dave gets in on the scrapping action and makes his very first layout! (Feb 2006)
My first convention - Salt Lake City, 2006. My album made the Top 10 in the art contest!
My first "Make it from your Heart" contest winner (I think it took 2nd place).
It was on the art wall at Convention.
Easter Sunday 2007 - Sammie continues to be my scrapping inspiration!
My Autumn/Winter Idea Book open house projects - 2007
June 2007 - New Summer stamps inspire fun card class cards
(and a whole new crop of card class members!)
My contest layout for Leadership 2007 - didn't place, but I still love it!
Regional Celebration 2007 - I entered this little File Folio book, and a layout and won 1st place for both!
The tulip fields are always a lovely place for pictures (and make great scrapbook layouts!) - April 2008
First Annual "Crop Til Ya Drop" Event - May 2008!
I completed my memorial album for Evan, and entered it in CTMH's Album contest for Convention 2008.
It was my way of healing from the heartbreaking loss of our failed adoption.
At the awards ceremony at convention! Evan's album touched the hearts of so many. I was blessed to be able to share my story, and excited to win such a prestigious award!
I also got to teach Extravaganza at convention in 2008! What an exciting event. :)
I can't imagine being a CTMH consultant without my best friend, confidante, and partner in crime - Christine!
I had the extreme privilege of teaching the mini album project at the Album Retreat as well.
It was my biggest class ever - over 350 consultants (and all of the corp staff). I was so nervous, but it was exhilarating and the most fun I've had as a consultant!
August 2009 brought me one new reason to scrapbook! Ruby Adelle Nicole became part of our family through adoption. I couldn't have asked for a better subject to scrap! :)
Our lovely little family of 4
Looking back on the last 5 years has been amazing! I hope you enjoyed the little journey on memory lane. I'm so thankful to CTMH for all of the opportunities and adventures I had as a consultant. With so many new great adventures ahead (a new home in May, Convention in July, Ruby turning 1 in August, Sammie starting Kindergarten in September, and more!) I'm sure to have plenty to scrapbook and commemorate for at least another 5 years!
