Stampin' Up! See Ya Later Alligator!

Well Folks,
Sale-a-bration is right around the corner and I can't wait!  It starts tomorrow,so keep in mind, for every $50 you spend before tax and shipping you get FREE!!!!  Here's a sample of some of the FREE you can earn!

We made this fun card at my clubs this month.  The stamp set is from Sale-a-Bration called, See Ya Later Alligator, which has 3 more fun sayings.  And the embossing folder is also a freebie.  LOVE IT!
We used Gumball Green Core'dinations #126836 (which I also saw whole packs of it on the Clearance Rack).  We just took our sand block and sanded it a little.  I thought it gave a fun look of "alligator skin".  The DSP is Epic Day This and That #130814, and we used the Gumball Green Stitched Ribbon #126848
Now lets go Sale-a-brate!

Stampin' Up! Leadership 2014 Day One

I'm so excited to be here in Houston with all these amazingly talented people!!!  We got in late Wednesday night and to bed by 1:30am and up and adam at 7:30.
We had our first general session and found out that we'll be getting our own version of Copics called Blendabilites!  I'm so stinking excited about this.  I got to play with them a little and LOVED LOVED LOVED them!!

As usual Stampin' Up! does an amazing job in making us feel welcomed and inspired.  Here's some cool things from the Occasions Catalog.

We got to do some awesome classes in the afternoon called the Share Fair, where other demos shared their success with certain aspects of their businesses.  I learned more about using Facebook, Pinterest and even Youtube!  Edwin will be so proud!

And this evening we were treated to the Managers Reception at the Houston Aquarium.  WOW is all I can say.  We had an amazing buffet of seafood, oysters on the half shell, shrimp, and sushi (I know, I know weird right) and tons of desserts to mention a few!

We went through the "shark tunnel" on a train and all the sharks were swimming around us.  It was crazy and we also got to feed string rays!  As someone said, it was like having their toothless grandma kiss you on the hand!  They were actually sticking their heads out of the water looking at us for food!  Fun but a little creepy.  You know "land shark ma'ame" kind of thing!

We were greeted inside the door with a diver inside the Aquarium holding a sign underwater welcoming us!  This is me and one of my roommates Sandy Hill.

And last but not least here is a swap that my other roommate Kristen Evert did.  Sweet dreams everyone!

Stampin' Up! Gorgeous Grunge

So I got this stamp set at convention in July and have not used it once!  Can you believe that??
So since I've been on a stamp budget lately, I figured this is the perfect time to use it.  And especially because I have my 2nd annual Birthday Buffet Bash coming up on January 18th at 1PM.

If your local to Elkhorn, Wisconsin, I'd love for you to come!  For only $12 you make 4 birthday cards (your choice of designs from 6 different designs) and then for each additional card its only a $1!  We'll be making masculine along with girlie girl cards!  Please RSVP with your registration fee of $12 (non refundable) by January 15.  Hope to see you there!

Stampin' Up! Endless Wishes and Happy New Year!

Happy New Year Everyone!

Its hard to believe its 2014 and in just 5 days my little baby girl will be 11!!!  YIKES!   It was gone in a blink of an eye!

So of course here in the Great White North, its snowing and I had to share this picture of Edwin shoveling off the back porch and the help he was getting!!!  NONE.

 Marley, the dog in mid air, thinks its great fun to interfere with the shoveling, so Edwin just throws the snow at him and of course that's much more entertaining!  And Murphy, he likes to try to photo bomb me as much as possible, he's on his way to do it, but he missed me!

The below picture is of a calendar I received in my downline gift exchange from Vicky Brockman.  Every month is different and I just "heart" it!

 Have a happy New Year!
