2013 CTMH Convention - part 2

Yes, it is only 1 month later….and I am getting the part 2 blog posted! J Where DOES the time go???

I have some more pictures to share with you…but I am SO SAD!!  I just realized that somehow, my first day pictures got erased off of my camera card.

I have NEVER had this happen to me before…and I am devastated!  I know I had about 200 pictures from that first day, because we went to Downtown Disney, the beautiful grounds of Coronado Springs and so much more! 

So, needless to say, here are a few more pictures to help you capture what a CTMH Convention is all about! J

A fun, extra part of Convention - is the giving of gifts.  Not that they have to be handmade, and not that gifts have to be given at all (I think I was lacking this year in creativity of gifts!) but I had to share with YOU a few of the gifts that I received at Convention…

These cards were made by Dawn Kennedy…one of my 4th downline!! Thank you so much for this ADORABLE card set!! 
Created by Dawn Kennedy

Here are two more gifts…the bucket of goodies is from my good friend & 3rd downline, Elizabeth Mindemann.  

The adorable book was created by Meredith Hainsworth, my 4th downline.

Keep in mind I actually received more gifts…a Sticky Boy t-shirt, a Love, Live, Scrap t-shirt, and many more I didn’t mention!! 

Thank you SO much to each of you for being a part of my CTMH family!! 
I feel so blessed to know each and every one of you! J

Another HIGHLIGHT of Convention….
I found my FIRST STICKY Boy on my own!!! Here is what Sticky Boy looked like this year….

Two years ago, one of my friends found a Sticky Boy for me…but I had never found one all by myself…

Now I have the LARGEST Sticky Boy of the family…and he’s wearing a Sombrero!!  Yayy!!

So, are you wondering Who is Sticky Boy??  Sticky Boy is CTMH’s mascot that ONLY makes an appearance at Convention.  So it’s rare to see him, and extra special to find him “sticking” somewhere around the Convention hall! 

If you’d like to see what Sticky Boy is all about -
check out this video!! 
You will also find out how durable My Acrylix stamp sets really are!!!!

Close To My Heart Conventions are also a GREAT time of creating NEW friends…and renewing old ones!!!

This year was EXTRA special for my 4th downline, Elizabeth Mindemann!!!  She was a DIRECTOR this year - meaning a lot of extra perks at Convention!!! 

Here we are with our Director sashes on..

A few of our perks as Directors were…
prime seating each session - we were right up front!!!  We had special entrances and exits so we didn't have to come in with the crowd.  We received our NEW Idea Books right at our seats!!! 

As Directors & above we also had an exclusive dinner on Thursday night at Epcot.  Then we had a tour guide lead us to see the beautiful fireworks display…and THEN, we had a “just for consultants” ride on the “Soarin’” after the park closed!!!

We also receive a GIFT as Directors.  I REALLY love the gift this year…take a look!!

I love the beautiful ceramic plates we were presented with at Convention. They were hand-made for us (thus the CTMH stamp on the back). and they are microwave & dishwasher safe. I can’t WAIT to use this at my 2013 Fall Open House….starting next Thursday night!

I hope you enjoyed this final recap of CTMH Convention 2013.  Unfortunately, I haven’t even shared HALF of what all takes place at our annual Convention...and it all happens in an amazing 3 days at the end of June each year! J  

If you’d like to join me in DISNEYLAND, California next year J, why not join my team and join in on the fun!!!  We’d love to have you!!
