Well, here it is, week 2 since I've been "blogging" and here is another page! I'm keeping up pretty good I think! I made this page to display at my Customer Appreciation Day I had last week! I had people come and make a card for free and I had prizes and food! It was really fun! This page is devoted to my niece Shantelle. She is the oldest of my nieces and nephews. She will be 6 in June! I can't believe it! This picture is a rare one! Shantelle DOES NOT like to have her picture taken and she is pouting in most pictures! But, she was sitting across the table from her Uncle Adrian (my husband), whom she just adores, and he got her to laugh and snapped a quick picture! It was so cute, I had to blow it up and give it, it's very own page! This page was made with all Close to my Heart products of course! I used paper from the new Idea Book that isn't even available until May 1st! It's called Let's Get Together and I think it's my favorite paper in the new book! The flowers are stamps from the Delight in Everything set and the "S" and the s words are stamps from the solo "S" set. It is so fun to play with the Alphabet solos! Monograms are really in right now!
We went to St. George, UT for Easter weekend to spend time with family and friends and that is where we took this picture. We used to live in St. George and I really miss it! It was so warm and I felt so good down there. I have Fibromyalgia which causes me to ache all the time in my muscles. Lower elevations and warmer weather always make me feel so much better. But, you have to live where your work is, so here we are in SLC, UT, which is beautiful, but it is a higher elevation and it is stormy a lot. Maybe some day we'll make it back down to St. George to live! Anyway, hope you all enjoy this page and I hope it inspires you to make your own pages! If you have any questions or if you want to purchase any Close to My Heart products, you can reach me through my website,

I'm still waiting for my cash award for taking the elusive Smiling Shantelle picture.

Not sure if Deb told you but I'm going to be doing some freelance for CTMY here in the near future. Perhaps some day you'll use or sell one of my stamps or paper designs. One never knows. :) You do good work Jen!

And Adrian, good work on the smile, it's a winner, even if there's no cash in it for you.
