Convention 2013 and a Guest Stamper

Okay, I gave you a run-down play by play from Salt Lake City during Stampin' Up Convention 2013, but I didn't have many photos for you, especially my big moment on stage for earning Rising Star, so I wanted to fill in the gaps a little now that I'm home and have access to the others' photos.

First, I have to show you the awesome Convention bag - a backpack this time!  So handy, and good-looking to boot!


Next I want you to see ALL the free products Stampin' Up gave us:

         JACKPOT!!  YEAH!




Here's some card swapping going on:  I'm in the middle and my up-line, Tamara Casorso,  is on the right, and her up-line, Desiree Spenst is on the left!


Here's some of our group at dinner at Benihana's:


And here's my big moment on stage with Shelli Gardner, the CEO, being recognized as the only Canadian Rising Star this year:



It's really going to be hard to top this year's Convention!

My youngest daughter, Jaimie MacGibbon,  visited with us for a couple of days last week and she created a card for us while she was here.  I loved it so much that I used it for my Big Shot Club as a card project and I wanted to share it with you here:

  • I love her colour choices and that she heat embossed the Chalk Talk image in white Stampin' Emboss powder!
  • I also love the texture she has created using the Chevron Embossing folder on the Whisper White panel and the doily and the linen thread.
  • I made a sample for my class and also embossed the Pool Party flag with the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing folder!  
  • The Pistachio Pudding DSP is from the Designer Series Paper Stacks - In Colours 2013/15.
