Stampin' Up! Convention Day 1 - Bag Pick Up, Memento Mall, Swapping... And more.

I got to the convention center about 6:10 and there were already about 30-40 eager ladies already in the Memento Mall Line. SO I took up my place to wait. Really wanted one of the punch templates. So I met some of the ladies around me who were either finishing their swaps or swapping. Ellie (aka Scrapbookingmama) was right next to me and very fun to hang out with. Dina came around trying to swap Coffee for Cards. Was very funny.

I brought one of my Build-a-Bears this year, but she now has Bear Envy. This was one of the other bears running around... Please notice the following... Stampin' Up! Apron, Catalogs (both main and mini), order forms, convention name tag.. and on her arm...A swap bag. TOO DARN CUTE!!!!!

After buying some items in the memento mall. I went into the gather place, was picked to make a card in 25 mins (yes design and make) with Just Beclause... That is mine I am pointing to. Was only able to use what they had on hand so used some of the Christmas Cocoa DSP, and you can't see it in this picture, but... Dazzling Diamonds. Have to have a little bling right??? I will try to get a close up picture later. Batteries were running low.
After hanging out in the gathering place for a while I headed out to get something to eat and then to Stampin' Up! HQ to check out how it is with less crowds than last year. I arrived about 12:45 and was able to go on in. This is one of the ideas in the Museme on site. I love this idea. Might have to do someting like this in my living room.

So that was my day so far. Getting ready for the SCS Dinner tonight. This is my card for the swap. Lets just say after 50 of these I need more Heat and Stick and more Orange Fine Glitter. =o) isn't is so sparkly... and love how the label almost gives the impression of a bat.

I will try to post more pictures from today after the dinner. Thanks for stopping by.

Digital Scrapbooking...

So... I didn't fall off the planet... yet anyhow. I have been playing around with Digital Scrapbooking and trying to learn to use Photoshop Elements. I found a website that does a weekly scrapbook sketch, thought I would try my hand at it today. This is what I came up with... Enjoy...

Would Love to hear what you think, or if you have any advise. =O)
