Well since I have sooo many pics from convention, I thought I would just share one everytime I post. So here's me in Twin Falls Idaho. We made a pit stop here both on the way to and from Utah. On the way there we saw people doing base jumping.
Next is a card I am making for a 100 card front swap. We are allowed to use only the new sets out of the catty and of course I picked the set that doesnt have any examples to be found. I knew the 1st time I ever saw this set that I wanted to take a piece of ribbon and having it sticking out the machine like its sewing it. So I started with that and went from there. Now I just got to make 99 more of them....by 9/13!!!
Stamps- Puns from the Past
Paper and Ink- Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze, Riding Hood Red, Cho Chip
Accessories- Buttons, Satin Ribbon, Scallop Square Frame, Sewing Machine, Corner Punch

OMG!! Convention was the best thing I have ever done to date. I cant put into words what an awesome experience it was. Like everything else portraying to Stampin' Up...you dont get it till you DO IT! I definitely recommend doing SU events even as a guest or..You can take advantage of the $99 starter kit promo thats starting on the 11th. I am offering an add promo just thru me when you buy the starter kit and I'll give you a free stamp set out of the new catty. Plus receive a special gift from my upline Nicole. Email me for more details and to get my special online number. This is an awesome deal!!! Carrying on..As soon as I walked thru the door Ive been cleaning and still not close to getting things back to normal. My house wasnt a complete disaster and I give create to my awesome friend Amy who watched the boys while I was away, but she wasnt there during the weekend and Im still amazed how big a mess my boys(including the big one) can make while Im away. So hopefully sometime soon I'll get a chance to sit down and download the about 1000 pics I took and post some. Most of you all have probably already heard about the cool announcements SU made at convention, Shelli's new blog So Shelli. Sneak peeks of the new Decor Elements coming in the winter mini, and announcing the totally awesome Big Shot or I like to say Mr Big Shot die cut machine. That will be available for purchase in Sept, so be sure to check back here since I will be offering a special offer with purchase of the Big Shot Starter Kit just thru me. I learned alot of things while at convention, one being..MAKE MORE SWAPS and more importantly SIGN UP for scheduled 3D swaps. Ill definitely need to start making swaps months before convention next year! I also kept seeing familiar faces, I saw alot of girls from blogs I visit. Mostly at the Awards Night. It was very cool to see the cash and stamp set awards people received for their achievements. The whole trip recharged my batteries not only as a demo but as a mom too. It was a much needed vacation. Well Im going to get back to cleaning and will get some convention pics up soon!!
