Complimenting Ariana

One of the greatest things about being a Close To My Heart Consultant is the lasting friendships you make.  A few days ago I returned from my extended weekend with some of my best CTMH sisters! In 2008 I went to my very first convention and was so excited to be chosen as one of nine winners of  a Spa Retreat Getaway.  It was one of the most memorable experiences and we became great friends. Each year at convention we have a mini reunion lunch to catch up with everyone.   We decided that a 2 hour lunch wasn't enough time so last we started planning a weekend reunion.   This year we were not ALL able to attend but hopefully next year more will be able to go.

Our wonderful hostess was Jaime who opened up her home to us for the weekend.  She had an AWESOME scrapbook studio.  We created until wee hours in the morning.  It was so much fun to collaborate on our businesses and art.  I came away very inspired and best of all - ALL CAUGHT UP so hopefully I'll have some time to create with freedom  - not things that I have to get done!

I'm going to be sharing some of the things I created last weekend.  Today, I'm sharing the Ariana Paper with Compliments.   I created a layout and also a card using only the compliments - no stamping.   What a snap to put together and it comes out so lovely!

The layout sketch  is from Make It From Your Heart Volume 1 - Pattern 7.  I used the Black & Grey Epoxy Bubbles along with the cute little bows from the Ariana Assortment to embellish the layout.

I still had a few compliments left when I finished the layout.  I thought they would be perfect on a card.  Here is the card I came up with:
