I returned from the fabulous Close to my Heart Regionals Celebration yesterday. My team members, Linda and Marilyn, attended with me and we went in early on Thursday for some great shopping in Schaumberg, Illinois, near Chicago before the festivities began. Here are some of our photos (we are scrapbookers after all) from the event.
The stage is set.
