Convention Team Gifts

I'm so excited, I'm leaving for the Close To My Heart convention tomorrow!!! Woo-hoo!! New papers, products and stamp sets to play with! :)

I'm super happy that seven of my team members are attending convention this year. It's at Disneyland, so it's nice and close. I'm giving each of them a little bag of goodies with yummy high-energy snacks (you know, like chocolate) and more practical things like post-it notes (for marking their favorite pages in the new Idea Book/Catalog that we'll be getting on the first day).  Can't wait!

 I also made these little gifts:

The little easel is about 3 1/2" tall.  It's so cute!  The butterfly is stamped on vellum and cut out.  The thing with the flower is a box of Tic-Tacs.  You can never have too many mints.  (I made the flower out of 4 paper flowers smashed together and glued.  Then I used the spray pen to color it pink.)   

The new Close To My Heart Idea Book goes live to customers on August 1, so you should come to a card class soon!  July will feature the Spring/Summer papers, plus we'll be drawing for free CTMH product!
