I recently returned from my first Close to My Heart Convention which was held at the Disneyland Resort in California. It was a great five days. Three days of Convention and three days at Disneyland.
Convention began on Thursday, July 14 with an awesome opening session where we learned of all the great new products that are going to be available come August. This includes the new exclusive CTMH/Cricut cartridge bundle. I am super excited about this particular product. With 700 images, including flowers, boxes, basic shapes that complement many of our stamp sets, and an alphabet that can only be found on this cartridge. The bundle comes with three stamp sets and three packages of dimensional elements.
After an afternoon of Extravaganza where we had seven great instructors who wowed us with great ways to create using our papers, stamps, complements, embellishments, and inks. I am looking forward to start creating using all of the new goodies I received there.
Intermingled within our times at Convention my friend Terrie and I spent time at Disneyland. I went on Tower of Terror for the first time and am still surprised I didn't get sick. The new Star Tours was great. I got to get my picture taken with Mickey! A first for me.
