itty bitty

I made this card a few weeks ago... just forgot to share!

This card was made using the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack.
I just love these little punches!  I added the little pearls to the 
centers, tied off a ribbon, and added a little Smooch for bling!

Cute and easy, huh?  No stamping involved!

where have I been?!

Wow!  Where have I been?  I can't believe it's been 3 weeks since my
last post... I've been such a bad blogger!  

I took some time off to re-group, planned our upcoming trip to
Budapest, Hungary... and attended the Stampin' Up! convention!!!!  

My mom and I spent a week in Salt Lake City and had a great time. 
 We went home with so many free Stampin' Up! goodies!!!!  

Since we were both VIP's (we both recruited in the month of April) 
so we got to go on a special tour of the Stampin' Up! home office, 
see Shelly Gardner's office, and meet Shelly herself!

Those of us who were VIP's received a little goodie bag made
by Shelly and her daughters.  They included Shelly's favorite
caramels and a roll of the new Ruffled Ribbon!  She tied them
off with handmade bookmarks that she signed with her 
famous (heart) Shelly!

Being a demonstrator has so many perks... like getting to go to convention
and seeing all the wonderful products, projects, and ideas!

Another great perk is that my upline's upline is Patty Bennett...
one of the top 10 demonstrators in the country!

If you sign up under me, you would be fortunate enough to be in Patty's
Luv 2 Stamp group.  We finally got to meet Patty in person at the
convention.  Usually we only get to speak via email (we're in
Cincinnati and she's in California) but we got to spend time 
with her and see her win all of her awesome awards during
awards night.  That was so inspiring to see!

Such fun!  Wouldn't you love to join us next year?!

There are only a few days left to sign up and take advantage of the 
July special... sign up for only $99!
