Convention Update – Part 2

I have some more pictures for you today… some of people, and some of beautiful flowers. The advantage of being in Salt Lake City is being able to walk around Temple Square, which is absolutely the most well landscaped area I’ve seen in a long time!  Here are some of the flowers and walkways I got to wander through:

There are flowers everywhere! It’s so pretty. I would love to have that in my yard!
The house in the middle and the buildings next to it are actually the Lion House and Beehive House. The Lion House had yummy comfort food where we stopped after we got back from our tour in the mountains. The Beehive house you can walk through with a short tour. Both were residences of Brigham Young. Very neat buildings!

On to more people….  and lookie, I remembered to number them this time.

1. Sharon and I with the dancers at the Roaring 20’s party!
2. Silver Lake selfie
3 & 7. Dinner at Red Rock Brewing
4 & 5. Some of the nifty old cars at the party
6. I saw Dawn and her hubby at breakfast a few times, so I had to make sure to get a pic at some point!
8. Sharon, me, Linda (my wonderful upline!) and hubby Jay
9. Pam from the Paper Craft Crew
10. Lydia from UnderstandBlue
11. Mormon Tabernacle Choir – you can go in and take a look
12. Chocolate stop on the mountain tour!
13. Lovely props for photo ops! Judy and Sharon helping me out there.
14. The whole gang out at dinner!

Sooo much fun all around!!!

Now I guess I’ll have to go back and edit the previous post so I can add info to those, too! 🙂
Have a good day!

Convention People Pics – Part 1

WOW did I do a good job of making sure to get PEOPLE PICTURES!!!!  I’m so proud of myself. 🙂   But first…. the ‘in progress’ pics of that swap card I showed you with the wonderful butterfly images (click here to see that one)…

EESH! I know, right? what was I thinking… But, it turned out beautifully. I have to admit, I had help, too.  I put the family to work… (they volunteered!!) well, except for the other kitty. He just wanted to make sure I knew he was there.

There are a lot of elements on this one, featuring the various butterflies of the Bitty Butterfly punch, the Bold Butterfly framelits, the Butterflies thinlits, and Watercolor Wings stamp set… The butterfly colors are Wisteria Wonder, So Saffron and Marina Mist. The little ones are sponged and glittered. YAY for the Dazzling Details glitter glue. Can you image that much loose Dazzling Diamonds?? The main butterfly also has some bonus bling… Rhinestones and the new Silver Metallic Thread. So shiny.

It’s also got the fabulous Brick Wall embossing folder. I sponged multiple colors on it to give it depth and make it look more realistic.  The cardstock is Smokey Slate and I used Smokey Slate and Mint Macaron inks.

To finish it off I used the Greetings thinlits twice.  I hope you like it, and even after 50 of these, I think I still like it, too. 🙂

On to convention people pics!!! The easiest way to share so many turns out to be in collage format! Yay for technologies.  Here’s the first group of folks… I’ve got a bit of everyone in this one… Upline, sidelines, Stampin’ up folks, friends.. All of them!!

How fun is that?? This isn’t even all of the pictures…. Now the trick is to get all their names on here! LOL… That may take a little more time. 🙂  Maybe I’ll just tag them all from Facebook!!

While I figure out the easiest way to do that… here is another pic from our little sightseeing adventure….

Didn’t I say it was gorgeous? yep. so neat. Our guide George was kind enough to send this to me.
Stay tuned this week for more!!

Back in Business after Convention

Whew!!  What a few weeks.. I unintentionally took a little break from here to take care of my kitty and attend Convention!  And oh boy has it been crazy!

The good news is kitty is home and getting healthy checkups! YAY!!  We had a few setbacks along the way, but the Doctor is confident all this will be behind us soon!  Here’s a pic of Zoie just chilling out on my lap…

As if that craziness wasn’t enough… Convention was last week!!! WOW! That is a good word to sum it up. I will have lots of updates over the next few days, as there is too much for one post!  To start things off, here is a picture of one of my swap cards I made for an organized swap:

Not like I picked something quick and easy, eh? I’ll have more details on that one with some ‘along the way’ pics later.

And, a few of us did some sight seeing before the stamping began, and it was worth it! Check out one of the spots we visited up in the mountains:
Crazy gorgeous!

Stay tuned this next week as I will have lots more pics! 🙂
I even managed to snap a few selfies and added a current pic to my site, heh…

Swap not used and more pics

Hey there!!  While coming up with the swaps I wanted to use for Leadership last week, I went through a few versions. One was absolutely nothing like the ones I finally decided on. So, I figured I’d share it here since it never made it’s way to Florida to be seen!

For this I used the Sheltering Tree in Cherry Cobbler and Pink Pirouette, with Wisteria Wonder for the accent flowers.  The lines on the background are from the Stylish Stripes Embossing Folder.  The sentiment uses a combination of punches: the Scallop Oval, the Extra-Large Oval, and the Modern Label.
I colored some rhinestones with the Blendabilities marker to add to the label with the sentiment that I partially inked up – so I only used the beginning of “thankful for you”.  With Valentine’s right around the corner, the colors are great, and you can change up the sentiment easily.

I also wanted to share a few more pics from Leadership…
This one is the group out at dinner the last night.. wow, that was fun. We got to share a little bit about ourselves with each other, and had lots of good food and laughs!

This is Spencer, from the home office.. he stopped by while we were looking at all the swaps our group had, and stuck around for some chatting time! He’s such a good sport!

And here’s one more of the pretty palm trees right outside the doors to the Convention Center:

Hope you have a great day!
