Convention Tag

Hi Everyone:  I have a short post for you this evening. Packing is so exhausting....maybe if I wasn't so indecisive about what clothes (or just in case clothes) to pack it would go faster.  Of course, it's always about the weight of your bags for flying.

I made myself a tag for my bag of goodies that I will receive at the Stampin' Up!Convention.  Everyone gets the same bag so it gets difficult to distinguish between your bag and another person's bag.  I don't think I would be very popular if I took someone's bag

I used some leftovers from the swaps I made to take with me.  I didn't make as many as I would have liked. I just ran out of time.

Paper: Concord Crush, Perfect Plum, Pear Pizzazz, Pocketful of Posies DSP
Ink: Concord Crush
Accessories: Big Shot, Tulip Embossing Folder, Top Note Die, Fun Flower Die, Pear Ribbon, Crop-o-Dile, Subtle Glimmer Brad
Before attaching all the parts of the flower, I curled up the petal edges using the Bone Folder and sponged them with Concord Crush ink.

Stay tuned for my open house in August.  I will be show casing the new goodies and of course there will be retired product for sale at reduced prices and door prizes.

I hope to get some blogging done next week so I can share some of what is happening at convention.  If you want to experience the Stampin' Up! convention next year, join my team and take advantage of the $119 starter kit. 

So, until next time....
