Convention 2014

Hello Everyone,

I wanted to post this a couple of weeks ago when I got back from Convention, but it has been busy.  But I wanted to show a little of what happened at convention so you can see how much fun it is.  And remember you can come next year too!  Just sign up to be a consultant! 

Here are some photos of my Convention Trip:


Opening Session!  First Day, excited to get our hands on the Annual Inspirations Book
Corporate puts on the greatest show, its so exciting leading up to the Book Reveal!






My Copy of the Annual Inspirations Book they give us with a VERY nice Bag filled with goodies!



On friday night we attended the Awards Banquet.
The consultants that are on the Red Box Program met up for a picture, it was great meeting everyone!  We all looked Fabulous!!

The dinner was so delicious!


 They had a stamp set for everyone at the Awards Banquet!
 
The next morning we did the Run/Walk 5K thru California Adventure to raise money for  Operation Smile.  There were 300 of us!  It was so much fun!



 I took a break on Saturday afternoon and went into the Park with my family, but I was so tired from the 5K in the morning but I kept going!  We had fun! 
Saturday Afternoon was closing Session and the corporate staff was surprised by a Flash Mob that the consultants did to the song "Happy"  It was so fun!


Well now you know what FUN goes on at convention! Don't you want to join?

Timberline

When this paper pack came out in the Idea Book I was so happy and had lots of ideas for it because it was a boyish paper.  I have tons of photos of Cody riding his dirt bike and us camping so I decided to make a layout with it.  Here is my finished product.

I used the Timberline Workshop on the Go G1077  it has the paper pack and a stamp and irresistibles Frames, embellishments all in a kit which is great everything matches,  It even includes an instructional brochure to help you create layouts. I used the Timberline Assortment embellishments and Stamped with the stamp set.  I also used the Cricut for some of the accents on the paper. 


Here is the Workshop on the Go Kit.  You can order it HERE


Here is another Layout I created using the same paper pack, but much more simple.

Thanks for looking!

Skylark

I just love the Skylark Paper Pack, I was not too sure about it when it first came out in the idea book, but since it is retiring, I thought let me get it and see what I can come up with.  Since most of my layouts are boyish for Cody I thought it would be hard for a layout.  Boy was I wrong.  I put together this layout and added Mason's photos to it and it and I love how it turned out. I even added the resin flowers to it.







I also did a quick card with this paper, and plan to do many more since I have so much of it left over.

This card uses the Skylark Paper Pack and I also used the Quatrefoil embossing folder and some twine and a new stamp set from the Annual Inspirations Book.




I am so glad I purchased this paper pack before its gone forever.  You can purchase it through my website until July 30th.  Click Here before its gone!

You can purchase the Kit or Just the paper, complements and embellishments separate.

Thanks for looking.


Happy Scrapin and Stampin
