First the sneak peak, now the entire project! Last week I posted a little teaser of this album...
Isn't it darling? I love how it turned out, with the bright colors and black distressing.
A few weeks ago I was contacted by Joanne for Close to My Heart. She was arranging a silent auction to benefit Operation Smile and I was honored to be asked to submit something. I could create anything, it just had to be "fabulous". Well, how could I turn down that offer? I was heading out for the annual family vacation, but luckily I'm within driving distance and I have a supportive husband. After we'd arrived at our vacation house, I turned back around and drove home for a 24 hour creative blitz, leaving hubby and kiddos behind (okay, I did take the dog, but he mostly just sleeps anyway.) I barely had time to take the photos you see here, before heading back to our vacation destination. Last week was the big Leadership convention for Close to My Heart and the silent auction was part of the event. There were more than 50 beautiful pieces of artwork from consultants (like me!) and the CTMH art department. The auction raised over $5,000 for Operation Smile, meaning that approximately 20 children will be receiving a life-changing operation courtesy of the generous bids of the attending Close to My Heart consultants.
All products are Close to My Heart, with the exception of the sheet music. I used an old Disney songbook to create these "musical" flowers. To view the entire album, you can click on the arrow to start the slideshow, or double click on the image so you can view each photo separately.
