Convention

Another day at Convention

First - I have to apologize!  We had terrible internet service at our hotel.  I tried like crazy to upload photos to you here...but that darn WHEEL OF DEATH just kept turning and turning.  I believe the problem was too many stampers on their internet service at the same time - LOL!  So here you go:

 

We definitely had a GREAT time in Salt Lake City!!!  Here are a few fun photos to share with all of you!

There were 10 from my team at the convention - so happy to go on this adventure with them!

So proud of these ladies!  They were able to strut across that great big stage to celebrate their 5 and 10 years anniversaries:

This is just one of the photo props that Stampin' Up! had available for us:

And then there was a ROARING 20's after party...after what?  A fabulous Awards Night!

And then this happened....I made the TOP 100 DEMONSTRATORS in the country!!!!  A HUGE THANK YOU to all of you - my customers who also qualify as my friends, my family, my fabulous downline - also my fabulous friends!!!!  I couldn't do it without YOU all!!!

Poppies!!!

102_6426

Here's one of the cards you'll enjoy making next week at TECHNIQUE TUESDAY!!!  Call or email to register.

I love this background stamp - called Pleasant Poppies - it's got so many possibilities.  I stamped it with VersaMark ink and embossed it with Black embossing powder...then just colored it in with the Melon Mambo marker.   SUPER EASY.  I used the 1-1/4" square punch layered on top of the scallop square punch for the perfect combination.  Speaking of "perfect" - the Perfectly Penned greeting set was "perfect!"

If you look real close at the photo - you can also see that I stamped the poppies on the Crumb Cake layer with VersaMark ink too - it added an interesting background.

102_6424

Stamps:  Pleasant Poppies; Perfectly Penned  Ink:  VersaMark; Gumball Green  Accessories:  Square Scallop Punch; 1-1/4" Square Punch; Gumball Green Stitched Satin Ribbon; Dimensionals  Cardstock:  Gumball Green; Melon Mambo; Crumb Cake; Whisper White

What a beautiful sight to wake up to - this was the view out the window of our hotel in Salt Lake City!  It was an unusual day at convention for Linda and I...we woke up when ever we wanted...ate a leisurly breakfast and then headed to the Temple Square for a little sightseeing.  No rushing around since our flight didn't depart until 5:30pm - YIPEE!!!
