Convention 2013 ~ Here I Come!!!

I am over the top excited about going to my first convention!!! I found a great community over at the Stampin' Connection (another perk about being a demo for SU) ~ anyway, I was really encouraged to make even 10 swaps to bring to convention and swap with others....well, so far I have 28 and if I get a chance I'll make a few more, but time is ticking as we leave early Saturday morning, but I'm so pleased to be bringing 28 swaps along ~ here is a quick snap of my swaps, sorry for the bad picture quality, but I'm running like crazy trying to get everything done for us and my parents and my in laws before we head out ~ yikes.....I NEED a holiday! And this will be a great one ~ we are road tripping to Utah, which is what we LOVE to do!


My cards also qualify for the challenge at Seize the Birthday! I love this challenge
and so thrilled to play along....finally!


The DSP that I used is from the current catalogue...and remember,  SU is offering this wonderful gift to you...it's buy 3 get one free...now is a great time to stock up on your favourites ~ don't be dissappointed and wish you would have! This offer, along with my own offer (10% off your merchandise on-line purchase while I'm away)...is only good until July 31 at 10pm)...so what are you waiting for, head on over and grab some of your favourites!!!



and here is what we came home to last night....


and the meaning of this, because there really is a purpose for these sweet little pink balloons that welcomed us as we entered our home last night ~ they actually were sitting higher and I failed to take a picture of them when we first walked in....I was too busy giggling like a little girl! And so I got around to taking a picture of this when I got up this morning, so they have sunk a wee, but the giggling still hasn't stopped...any guesses out there as to the significance of this sweet pink ballon bouquet???



I'm pretty sure that I've mentioned that these two amazing brothers are expecting another bundle of sweetness in November...okay...you guessed....after 5 grandsons....we will be welcoming our first little granddaughter into the family ~ we are blessed beyond words!



If you live in Winnipeg or the vicinity and would like to host a party I would love to come and stamp with you and your friends!! Or, if space is an issue, come here and create with me at one of my many clubs or classes! Drop me a line for further info! I'd love to meet you! Enjoy your day!

Happy Birthday To You!

Dean & I had such a fun time camping with Seth last week ~ here are a few shots of our time together!



Dean & Seth played checkers and although we don't  have a picture of us...I taught Seth how to play Backgammom...and we had a blast! Well I was elated when I saw the sketch from JUGS...this could not have been more perfect for what I had in mind for Seth's Birthday card....I can't believe our first born grandchild is going to be 13 next week.


And of course Seth will be getting a nice Soft Suede, Leather bound Backgammom Board from Gramma...and the card....well, you guessed it....a Backgammom card! So much fun!



Two quick little comments from me.....
wish I wouldn't have stamped my VeryVanilla disks...should have just left them and embossed them with clear EP as I did the Chocolate Chip ones....and secondly...
...I know it's a goofy card, but Seth will be TOTALLY impressed that I made a Backgammom card...hence the.....Backgammom card!!!

I hope you enjoyed your little visit ~ Be sure to come see me again!
