Always Shoebox Swap

Happy Tuesday! As I was frantically *starting* to come up with a Shoebox Swap card at 9:30 p.m. on Tuesday night before I had to fly out to Convention on Wednesday morning (what is wrong with me?!), I pulled out one of my favorite sets, Always (on page 57), that has been neglected for awhile. I must have been channeling Stampin' Up!, because when I got there, this bird was everywhere...like here and here and in the new designer series paper called Sweet Always. Love it!

I uploaded more Convention photos to my Webshots last night, like some of this room that SU had on display in the Gathering Place. I love "officey" stuff like this. Do you recognize that stamp used on the wall? It's the prize one I received, Organic Outlines, and it will also be available in Decor Elements Phase 2 as you can see on the chair.

If you'd like to look at certain things in my Webshots Convention album, here's a little guide for you:
  • more room/home decor displays from Gathering place, middle of page 4, start here
  • Sizzix Big Shots samples, page 5, here
  • Flight of the Butterfly (new set), page 5, start here
  • Inspired by Nature (new set), page 6, start here
  • Eastern Blooms (new set), page 6, start here
  • Make & Takes, Brent Steele projects, and new products, page 7, start here

Hope that helps! Thanks for you sweet comments about posting during Convention. I really felt bad because I had planned on posting and sharing lots more, but we seemed to be out so late each night and I was more tired than usual. We had a good deal (thanks, Asha!) on a super nice hotel by the airport (less than 10 minute drive), but it didn't allow us anytime to just "chill" in our room between events, which I think wore us out more. The money savings was worth it, though, because I can "chill" out at home now for free! lol!

You must work good under pressure Angie because this shoebox swap is beautiful! It takes on a different look with the new designer paper.
