I'm Baaaack and Some News!

Back from convention and I am excited but tired!  It was a whirlwind of excitement as we looked at our new catalogs, oohed and aahed at the new stamp sets and new products and were entertained by the fun things that Stampin' Up! always has to offer during convention!  Here are a few highlights:

Shelli (sorry, hon,I am not a good photographer!)





 DSCF1299 Chocolate emblems on our cupcakes for dessert--yum yum!






A DSCF1343 trip to Riverton to see Stampin'Up!'s  gorgeous facility!














Cool new projects!


And swaps!  These are just a few of mine that I brought to convention.  



Stampin'Up! has also announced a partnership with Sissix and will be introducing their own Big Shot diecut machine with exclusive SU dies!  They are very cool and I'll have more to show you later!! 

On another note, I will be taking off the month of August as far as blogging goes.  I am not going away completely; I will still be posting occasionally, like my Color Throwdown, and a few other things as time allows, but I have a medical issue that needs attention (I am okay, no worries) that will take the entire month, and we will be away on vacation a couple weeks as well, so rather than stress myself out, I am taking a blog vacation too!  I hope you understand and will still come visit me, especially in September when I hope to be back in full swing!  Thanks for all your kind comments....I know my blog has almost 30000 hits on it, so stay tuned for some blog candy!! WOOHOO!!!
Thanks for being patient & understanding!

I just wanted to wish you nothing but the best and a speedy recovery for any procedures you may have. You will be in my prayers. Enjoy your blogging vacation.

Hi - Convention was wonderful. I was a first-timer so I really didn't have a clue most of the time. Next year I'll be better prepared. If you can come next year, we'll make it a point to meet!! Hugs and Best Wishes for the month of August. Have fun on your vacation!
