Hidy Ho friends,
We arrived in Salt Lake City on Tuesday and the fun has already begun. Swapping and sharing and eating of course. We got to visit the new City Creek Mall. It is HUGE and every store you could ever imagine. Today (Tuesday) was our travel day and get used to the time change day. When we wake up in the morning (Wednesday)…that is when the FUN begins!
Here is part of our group.
Stay tuned…I'll try to post tomorrow some more fun! Thank you for stoping by.

Hidy Ho Stampers,
Well yesterday was a very busy day, getting lots of stuff ready for my upcoming trip to Utah for the Stampin' Up! Annual Convention. Ohhhhhhh what fun we have at convention!!! Anyway, I'm sharing my Reason To Smile cards with you again today. Here is my latest card. I did this in my Stamp a Stack class today.
Here is the outside. I used the reverse of the Fancy Fan Folder.
I love using it both ways.
And here it is when you open it up!

Hidy Ho stampers,
The new all occasion stamp set called Easy Events (#116958 wood mount or #123225 clear mount) found on page 57 of the Idea Book and Catalog is a lot of fun to work with. We were given a "Workshop in a Bag" while at convention and I've been playing with the cards. They are so stinken cute. It's one stop shopping with this set, it has a little of everything. What do you think?
Isn't this cute. It is a note-sized card #107311 found on page 182 of the Idea Book and Catalog.
The envelope was sealed, 1" was cut off the top and I used the 2 1/2" circle punch to make the dip in the envelope. Everything was stamped with Jet Black Stazon Ink. The Happy Birthday sentiment was put on the outside as well as adding it to a banner on the inside. The cupcake was colored with our Stampin' Write Markers then I added Two-Way Glue and Dazzling Diamonds glitter. The last embellishment was the a Melon Mambo flower with a rhinestone in the center. It is even cuter in person!
and here is a little LOVE card made from the same stamp set.
Well that's it for today. Thank you for stopping by.
Hidy ho stampers,
Tonight some of us that went to convention got together and did our make and takes. We started out with pizza and wings, dips and some delicious desserts (actually we ate all through the evening mmmmmmmmm). It was nice getting together once again.
Here we are working away!
Here is a card box I will be doing as a class, it has matching dividers. Don't you just love the top? It's covered with our new fabric called Timeless Portrait #122337, I used the matching Designer Series Paper (#122352 Timeless Portrait) to cover the dividers.
Here is one of the cards we did. We used the Raining Flowers stamp set (#122765 wood mount or #122767 clear mount) and the It's Your Day Stamp set .#123682.
and a little note card…We used the Raining Flowers stamp set (#122765 wood mount or #122767 clear mount) and the It's Your Day Stamp set .#123682.
and here is another card we did, this time we used the Best Friends Forever stamp set #122805 wood mount or #122807 clear mount along with the It's Your Day stamp set .#123682..
These are just a few of the things we did. Like I said it was so much fun getting together with the group again.
Hope you liked my post, thank you for stopping by.
Hidy Ho Stampers,
When I went to Convention, I had to SHIP home a lot of my stuff, I just didn't have the room in my luggage! So what do you get…just take a look…
When you go to a Stampin' Up! convention, you always receive a "bag"…but the bags are not just a bag…this is the bag we got this year.
I made eeveryone a tag with their name on it so we could tell whose was whose! There were thousands there and they were all the same! so this helped out just a little bit.
Here is the matching pen, charm and pin.
and did I tell you about the free stamps???? these are just SOME of the stamps I received FREE!!!!
And this year we had a special breakout class. I chose the Village of Cuteness class…stay tuned until tomorrow and I will show you what this little village looks like all finished!
And on top of that, we got a "workshop in a bag"! All the supplies you will need to have a workshop with ten people…cut and prepped for us!
And here are some of the items I purchased at Momento Mall…SO COOL!
Okay that was just a sneak peak of a few of the the things that we got. Convention is soooooo much fun. How about joining me next year! FUN FUN FUN!!!!
Gald you could stop by! Have a great day.

Hidy Ho stampers,
Remember this picture I posted a few days ago?
This is my L L Bean Bag that I filled with snacks for the girls…welllll…..we had a guy in our group this year soooooooo what was I going to make for him???
Here is my version of a fishing box. Isn't it adorable! It's so manly!!!! :0) I think Chris liked it also!
Then it was time to shop in Momento Mall! That is sooooooo much fun. Here are a few pictures of that event.
Stampin' Up! does such a great job of decorating!!! This window was gorgeous.
And flowers! to go along with the GROW theme.
This wheelbarrow was filled with Ribbon Samplers.
Here is a banner made from our new die.
and here are the ribbon samplers close up.
This was the new lunch tote and they filled it with flowers! I bought one for Katie.
These mugs were flying off the shelves.
One of my favorites were these umbrellas! I love my Stamping Up! Umbrellas.
And here is my card for the day! I just love the new punches!
Thank you for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed what I had to share. Have a great day.
Hidy Ho Stampers,
And more pictures…
So we stopped in Chicago to switch planes! Look who we found there??!!
And another flag siting…Here is Mandy stopping traffic with her flag so we could cross the street. Isn't she cute.
And here we are sightseeing. Isn't this beautiful. It was in Temple Square.
And I don't think I showed you the winner of the Challenge this month. It was Barb Stomieroski's. Isn't it gorgeous!!!!!
And last but not least, two of my downline earned the Disney Incentive trip for next year so I made them both something special. I dressed the mouse up to look like Minnie and I planted them in this pot because our theme for Convention this year was "GROW"! It was so cute.
I hope you enjoy my post…see you tomorrow.
