Roomie Gifts from Convention 2013

The other thing I meant to share with you from Stampin' Up Convention 2013 is a little tradition we have of making our roomates a gift.  It's almost more fun coming up with something cool to give our roomies and to hear them exclaim over them, than it is to receive the gifts, even though it is plenty of fun to get roomie gifts, too!

I showed you the sewing kit I made for all my roomies before, but here is a reminder:



Here's me and my roomie, Holly Finney!  We had a great time this year!



 I wanted to share with you what Holly did for me and all the others in our group:


She filled a paper lunch bag with a huge assortment of amazing snacks and decorated the bag beautifully!




Here's a close-up:  (All images are © Stampin Up)


Holly used a doily as a background and some Soho Subway DSP.  There is also some Pistachio Pudding cardstock and This and That Designer washi tape along with one of the cute clips and some 7/16" Natural Trim! (Love that stuff!)  She used the Banner Greetings Stamp Set and the Mosaic Madness Stamp set and Mosaic punch to create more embellishments!  Oh, and I spot some little Candy Dots as well!



At the top is an image from Wonderfall and she used the This and That Rotary Stamp to stamp the date of Convention!   I think she did an amazing job on this package!!  Won't you leave a message to tell her what a great job she did?  Keep in mind that this goodie bag got me through 3 long days of convention and a long trip home in my suitcase, so we received these in much more pristine condition!!

Hope you have a great weekend!
