Summer 2002 - I went strawberry picking with my children. My son, 10 years old at the time is wondering by the trout pound saying that he will meet us in a few minutes. I went to the fields with my daughters to pick up the strawberries. We are almost done picking when I see him at the other end of the field coming in my direction. I will never for get this picture in my mind since I did not have my camera. I remember the smell of the field since it rain a little that morning.  I can see what he was wearing, his green sweatshirt, the way he walk with his rubber boots, the big live trout in a bag with water on his back and the big smile on his face. The story my son told us about that fish was incredible.  I do not have pictures of this memory but it will for sure end up in one of my scrapbook with the laugh and emotions I felt at the time.

One of the highlight of the Close To My Heart convention last week was meeting Stacy Julian.  Stacy was one of our speaker. How inspiring! Stacy talked about scrapbooking the memories even if you don't have pictures. Memories are all in the feelings and emotions. Sometimes we are so busy taking photos that we forget to enjoy the moment.  We get behind our cameras and  observe rather that participate in the event. Have you ever scrapbook an event without photos? Scrapbooking is not only about the photos, it is also about the memories and the emotions.  On you next scrapbook layout don't forget  about the story behind your pictures.

Happy cropping!

What a great convention!

I had such a great time at the convention in Dallas, Texas last week! It was my first convention and was so trilled to meet the Close To My Heart family.  Beside all the art work, classes, new products and games, the most amazing part for me was the banquet where they give the awards.  I was so honored to receive the award for New Consultant Top Sale Canada, in front of hundreds of people. I felt like winning an Oscar!  So here are my thank you.

I would like to thank my family, my dear  husband Daniel, my children Stéfanny, Karine and Marc-Olivier for their support in my new career. My dear friend Susie, thank you, without you this would have not been possible you gave me the confidence and the vision that I could do it.  Thank you Carla, my mentor. Your support is giving me wings to reach my goals. Most of all, I would like to thank all my clients. Your support is invaluable. I do it because I love it but  the gift of your friendship is priceless.  There is a piece of each of you in this award. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

I am back from convention

Hello my friends,

I am back from convention and still feeling overwhelm with all the new products.  I want them all!
Convention was so great. I met new friends and was able to play with the new products. I just cant wait to show you the  new Fall -Winter Idea Book. Convention was very special for me as I was the recipient of an award. This was a big surprise as this was my first convention.  I will share more detail on this on a up coming post.  So let me unpack my bags and I will give you an update, later today, on all the changes coming up.

Have a beautiful morning and come back later today for all the great news!
