Why I became a CTMH consultant

This is the Close to My Heart blog hop featuring stories and artwork about why we all became consultants.  I hope you enjoyed reading Jennifer's story and seeing what she has to share with us.

I joined for a couple of reasons.  First, my local CTMH consultant let me know she was no longer a consultant when I asked her if she wanted to attend a fundraising crop that I was hosting. We ended up having a couple of other vendors come to the crop but it wasn't the same without Close to My Heart there.  At this crop, one of the attendees had the Artiste Cricut Cartridge and she let me use it for some of the scrapbook pages I was working on....I was hooked at that point.  I signed up the next day and didn't know who to pick for my upline when I registered so I picked Keeley since her name is similar to my daughter, Kelsey.

Now, two years later, I am mostly a hobbyist and hold gatherings about once every 6 weeks with a local group of scrapbookers and cardmakers.  The annual fundraiser crop continues on as well!

Enough about me, on to the good stuff! A 2-page layout with Kaleidoscope paper pack and Artistry, the newest Cricut Cartridge. (Did you know you have an option to earn a free Cricut cartridge if you sign up in April to become a consultant? How cool is that! Check my website for details.)
