At the end of April, Close to my Heart held a one day event for its consultants in the Philly area. It was a wonderful experience and such a great feeling to know I am part of a wonderful company that takes care of its consultants. At this event, we had an auction to raise money for Operation Smile, a great organization that helps children pay for surgeries for clef palette and other facial deformities. We raised $3000!! Enough to pay for over 12 surgeries!! You can read all about it here on Jeanette Lynton's blog.
Also at this event, I was able to participate in a contest/swap. While I didn't win the contest, I got some beautiful swap items. I want to share the layout that I entered.
I used the Lucky paper pack, wooden buttons, journaling tags, hemp and even some embossing to make this layout come together.
