Australasian Operation Smile Blog Hop You’re The Bomb

You’re The Bomb!

Operation Smile is a private,  not for profit organisation providing reconstructive surgery to children and young adults born in developing countries. On 1st December Close to My Heart Consultants released our Seasonal Expressions Idea Book. On the back page of this Idea book you will find the C- sized, You’re the bomb stamp set. By purchasing this set at full retail price  of $21 you can help change the life of a child as CTMH will donate $US3 from your purchase to Operation smile.  Since 2008, Close To My Heart has provided support to change the lives of over 1,500 children and their families.

Today we will be sharing some inspiration using “You’re the Bomb”. We hope you will be compelled to purchase this set and in so doing, contribute to the life changing work of operation smile. The blog hop is a loop with about 10 participants so follow along and you will end up right back here.  If you get lost there is a list of participants on Mandy’s Blog here.  

if you have arrived from  Shaunna’s Blog, Passionate About Pages you are in the right place!

At Convention USA I started to come to an understanding of the importance of Operation Smile to Close To My Heart. However, I was deeply moved at the Australasian Convention when Brian Holman gave us a presentation of his trip as a volunteer helping the team doing the work.  He had the task of looking after the children during the fasting before the operation and was able to share his story with such heart every consultant in that convention room was moved by the story. This presentation has not only informed me about Operation Smile, it has cemented it into my very core as an essential aspect of being part of the Close To My Heart Family.

As consultants we take pride in doing something we believe is really really important.

 We show you how to celebrate relationships through discovering your creativity, to preserve and share the moments that matter most.  

These moments usually involve precious smiles that we take for granted. I have been so moved by the Operation Smile foundation and the work they do, as well as the role Close To My Heart leadership has taken in the organisation I now raise funds for Opration Smile with a monthly raffle at the Mildura crop to donate to this worthy cause. I am also no longer afraid to ask a customer if they would like to round up for Operation Smile.  I invite you to get on board with this worthy cause and include this stamp set with your next order along with a ’round up’ so Close To My Heart can provide even more smiles!

So let’s take a closer look at that art work shall we? Yes, my Grandson is all smiles…smiles of different kinds in each of these snaps from day care.

Close up of the Left Hand page shows all the lovely hand written labels that would enhance any scrapbook page. Just recently CTMH has shared a lovely tip for cutting shapes like a circle from your photos with your Cricut on their facebook page. Be sure to check them out!

I cut the title William with the Cricut – so easy! I have used the Paper Fundamentals for this and they cut really well!

  2. Oh jenny your pages are stunning and your grandson is gorgeous. My grandson has just turned one and his little brother is due any day now. I hope I can scrap book some pages to do their photos justice and as lovingly as you have. Your work is so inspiring to me. Thank you for sharing.

    • I really was overjoyed when my daughter handed me the photos and said what will you do with these mum? Ah a challenge – love it. I saw it all in my head and off I went to make it. Timing for this blog hop was perfect. I am really enjoying doing boy pages and William is the only boy I have to scrap about 🙂
