Stampin' Up! Celebrity Siting!

This is Stampin' Up!'s Linda Hansen. She ROCKS! I was so excited to see her in the lobby of the hotel when we first arrived!! I squealed out her name and she dropped her luggage to give me a hug, like I was one of her dearest friends!! I am always so warmed by her kindness! She is one special lady! Thanks Linda!

Stampin' Up!'s London Regional Highlights

I had so much fun at the London Reginal Seminar with my friends. Here's a couple photos to prove it!

This is Chris & Michelle right before heading into Heather Summer's Regional Event on Friday evening! We made it!!!

This is me (!) enjoying some stampin' fun! I LOVE my job! ->

We finished! I think that's the yummy cake (death by chocolate is what I named it) on that plate at my elbow! The food was good and the project was GREAT! Thanks Heather!

Here is me, Michelle, Heather Summers (SU's Canadian Diva Demo) and Chris! Heather is a sweetheart and so talented!

3D Wow Swap

I had a blast at Stampin' Up!'s Regional Seminar in London, Ontario on Saturday, 14 March. I roomed with three Diva demos and dear friends, Chris, Michelle and Caroline and we had some great laughs!! Once we finally arrived (3 hours later than we should have, due to mapquest's unknown exit & street names) we had just enough time to freshen up, say a special hello to Linda Hansen (my fav SU person in attendance) and head to a great gathering of Candian demos to make a wonderful project with Fifth Avenue Floral stamp set. I also enjoyed the most marvelous "death by chocolate" cake everrrrrr! I joined two swaps and received some fun ideas. One swap was the 3D Wow Swap and here's my project! It's a color inventory tin of all Stampin' Up's cardsock/markers/ink & craft inks and refills!

This is an inside view! I added some small wish lists with a mini clothespin and inserted a pencil, too.

Thanks to Cathy Bell for the inspiration and Dawn for the inventory sheets! Special thanks to Heather for posting these photos on her blog and the wonderful compliments she gave me!

I'll be sharing this project as a class, soon! Check back for details or keep checking my website.

I have entered this 3D swap in Stampin' Up!'s wow art file contest for April. You are welcome to case this for personal use, however I do not give permission for you to use my personal creation to enter any contest or magazine submissions. Thank you.
