Ahoy Everyone!  This is my very first post.  Please bear with me as I learn how to manage my blog.  I'll be adding and changing as we go.  I just had to get started, so I thought the first thing I would talk about is the 2012 Stampin'Up! Convention that we just attended in Salt Lake City.  I went with two of my wonderful downline members and good friends - Janet Hathcoat and Laura Diamond.  We had a great time!  We had a tour of the Stampin'Up! Home Office, attended classes, stamped, swapped cards, took photos and had a blast.  Here are a couple of photos taken at our headquarters.  The weather was gorgeous.

We all participated in open swaps, as well as organized swaps.  Here is my swap for the SUDSOL Card Candy Swap.  I decided to do a "Bird" theme.   All the birds were made using various punches.  The topper uses the Owl Builder punch and the new Take Care stamp set.  

The three of us participated in a Make and Take Swap on Saturday night after convention.  Here is the swap I provided.   Supplies include:  Open Sleigh stamp set, Northern Flurry Embossing Folder, Scallop Squares Duo Bigz Die, Antique Brads, Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding, Card Stock (Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Basic Black, Glossy White), Frost White Shimmer Paint, Stampin' Sponges, and ink (Crumb Cake and StazOn Black). 

Well, I hoped you enjoyed my very first post!  I can't wait to share more on convention next time!

Check out the new Holiday Mini Catalog!  Tons of great new stamps, papers, accessories and more.
