WANTED: Pranksters responsible for this . . .

This is a special report from the CCL PRANKSTOPPERS . . . Unsolved mysteries . . .

CCL Police are searching for the pranksters responsible for the vandalism of the CCL Tent, chairs & signs at approximately 3:30am on January 7, 2006.

It appears that this was an inside job aided & abetted by hotel security. The suspects appear to be 3-4 females, ages 30-40, addicted to CCL, armed with 4 toilet paper rolls & sticky notes and last seen in the CCL Crop Room. If anyone has any information leading to the apprehension of these CCL Addicts, you are urged to contact, or anonymous tips can be made at 225-744-CCL.

Justice will prevail!! LOL-its all in the name of FUN! Were you at CCL the year that the police paid a visit to me regarding CCL patrons taking Margaritas glasses from Ninfas? What a riot-they had me going for a little while. SOOO you're never to old to have fun at summer camp!!!!

The upcoming May/June 2010 kits features a brilliant selection of Green at Heart papers, Element Stickers, Canvas Tags, Micro Monogram Stickers in a layout that is perfect for early summer activities. Bursting with juicy color, patterns and texture, Kelly Goree’s layout is a sweet take on the Green at Heart collection.

For those who wish to keep with the “All About Me” theme to their layouts, members can document their favorite place or places (up to three images can be included on the layout). For students working on a more general theme, this layout lends itself to Mother’s Day, early summer cookouts and gardening.

June’s kit features the elegant and timeless Cappella collection.

or “All About Me,” we suggest your members take an honest look at some of their biggest fears and how they want to, or have, overcome them.

Other suggestions:

early summer
Mother’s Day
school’s out
kid’s graduation

prom/ school dance
high school or college graduation

All about Me: “Favorite Places” – take a moment to think about the places you’ve spent time– whether it’s a room in your house, your favorite reading chair, or a place in town that is familiar to you—or a far-away and magical location you’ve visited. Think about why they are your favorite places. Feature up to three different places, or focus on just one.

“Things that scare me” – dig deep and be honest about your fears: what you are afraid of and why. Documenting your fears is one big step you have towards conquering them. For those preparing the “all about me” album, honestly documenting your fears may help the recipients understand you better and draw strength from your experiences.

TUESDAY 2 FER: Purchase 2 Basic Grey 12x12 letters sheets & receive 2 FREE.

“Get ready to embark on a journey filled with ideas and inspirations to spark your creative curiosities. This compendium is a compilation of my thoughts and ideas to guide you through your own artistic adventures.

It’s all about embracing your imperfections and taking time to explore the imaginative. What you’ll discover will be wonderful, what you’ll discover will be yourself…

This 77 page book is filled with ideas on all things idea-ology, plus just about every technique I could think to put in it. The book is hard cover and metal spiral bound so it sits open flat on your table while you’re creating. I share my favorite supplies, tips, techniques, and a gallery showing ideas of putting it all together…”
