Love what you do...

Just a quick post to say "Love what you do" ;} I know I do. Last week was crazy hectic in prep for my 2 full stamp n stack classes. I created a ton of cards... the idea is supposed to be simple. Create 4 designs and duplicate 3 times... everyone takes home 12 cards. Well... you know me. I can't do I tend to change it up a little so people don't get bored with the same colours etc. Anyway... long story short... alot of cropping, prepping & designing went on last week. I even ran out of square envelopes. The good news was it was a huge success... I'll post some of the photos in the next week or so... I just wanted you know I'm still here stamping...or in my case this weekend scrapbooking ;}

For now.. I'll show you the card I made for a close friends 40th birthday I attended last weekend... yes! I stamped 2 days.. and scrapbooked a whole day Saturday. What a great idea!!! I finally got organised to scrapbook my daughters album. For now.. here's the card I made for my friend Cindy....using I Heart Hearts clear stamp set!! I love it already!!!! Once you go clear you never go back ;)

BTW.. the colours are chocolate chip, tempting turquoise & melon mambo... the camera can be deceiving

Stampin Up! Royalty!

I'm still on cloud nine.... I spent a wonderful evening at Stampin Up! event that one of demos had won in a recent SU! recruiting challenge. The prize was to have a Workshop of a Lifetime! the guest of honor was the co- founder & CEO of Stampin Up! Shelli ;} WOW!!! WOW! Kim won the challenge and I can see why.... At my first ever SU! demo event she offered me soooo much advice and had this air of warmth around her.... it's weird.. but I felt like I'm known her for years. Anyway... to keep this post quick... and to curb my excitement... I just had to show off my photo I managed to sneak in at the event tonight.

Yeap! that's me.... next to Shelli & her daughter Sara. Wow!! and guess what... I even had the courage to ask a question in the Q&A to Shelli. Shelli loved my question!!!! My question was " What Stamp/Set was the biggest surprise success?" Oh!!! I thought maybe the Medallion... but Shelli said she knew that was going to be a hit. What was her answer I hear you all asking me? Hmmm.... well..... She replied that the 'Dasher' stamp was the biggest surprise & hit with everyone.

Also... here's Kim! Isn't she friendly looking... and her family were gorgeous too!! What a awesome night we never ceases to amaze me what a good family SU! is... It's the best compliment a company can have ;} I suppose that's why they came up with the saying "Love what you do" at convention. Hmm.. I wish I could go to convention this year... I jut found out it's the weekend of my birthday. Wouldn't that be a great gift ;] ;} hint hint!

And finally... here's my bessie Stampin Up! Demo Mate :} Jo-Ann or I sometimes like to think of her as my older sister...if I had one ;P

The one thing I love about SU! is I've made a bunch of friends...and I love crafting with them.
More photos of the event to come... just couldn't wait to post this!!!
