More on Convention 2013

Here is Shelly Gardener, Co-founder and CEO of Stampin' Up!  She is a genuine down to earth person who had a vision, along with her sister, and 25 years later, the company is still going strong!
I loved every time she took the stage, she spoke directly from her heart.  
These next pictures is of her quickly demonstrating some new products!  

I also like to call them the many faces of Shelly!  She is so enthusiastic about her Company!  Her excitement was very contagious!
These were just some of the creations she made to share with us!  I love the one with the swallowtail butterfly!  It was simply amazing!
Well that is all for today!  Thanks for allowing me to share with you a little of my world!

One of my Swap cards for Convention 2013!

This is one of the cards I made for general swapping.  At any Stampin' Up! event you will find women and men, stopping to swap cards (generally just card fronts) with one another!  This way you get a great mix of different techniques, styles, stamp sets...It is a lot of fun.
With this card, I used our new Smoky Slate cardstock, love love love this color!, Crushed  Curry Cardstock and the beautiful Eastern Elegance DSP.  I have always loved Stampin' Up!'s DSP, but this year I feel they have outdone themselves with the new DSP in the 2013-3014 Catalog!  Ok, back to the card!  I used the stamp set Mixed Bunch and the matching punch with that, the blossom punch.  I added some pearls to the side of the card and called it done!  Super easy, the DSP does all the work on this card!  
I hope you enjoyed this swap and I will be back with more from two organized swaps I also participated in!

Thank you for joining me today in my corner of the world!

Stampin' Up! 25th Anniversary Convention 2013!!!

I had the fantastic opportunity to attend Stampin' Up!s 25th Anniversary Convention in Salt Lake City Utah!  This was my first convention and it was such an amazing experience!  
First I attended the convention with my Fabulous and oh so sweet up line, Becky Lambie!  I am also so blessed to call her a dear sweet friend that I am privileged to have in my life!
That's Becky in the foreground

We had such a great time!  There was so much to see and do, never a dull moment!  I will be sharing with you some more pictures of my experience in the next couple of days.  Blogging is new to me so I will be figuring it out as I go along!  Thanks for your patience!
Thank you for coming to my corner of the world today!
