The photo below is a picture of the convention crowd of demonstrators when the doors opened. Yes, it made me think of sardines. We certainly were packed in there -- and I was somewhere in the midst of that crowd. There were almost 6,000 demonstrators at the convention.
Before the convention began, I did a tour of the Stampin' Up! home office. I took the photo below there.
The kite card below is one we made in my stamp camp last month. I used the directions a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, Kelly Gettelfinger, provided. Her website is filled with many great ideas and videos: http://alwaysstampin.blogspot.com/
I love the sympathy card below. I totally copied it from Brian King, a Stampin' Up! demo. I met Brian at the convention and told him how I had a downline meeting and we made the card exactly like his example. He told me that he got a lot of great feedback about this card -- simple and gorgeous. His website is at http://stampwithbrian.com/ if you want to see more of his work.
That's all I have for you today. I'm looking forward to getting together with my my wonderful upline (I so appreciate all you've taught me, Pennie) today to look at all the swaps we both got from convention.
