Big Shot News!

Happy Saturday morning! Here's another swap I made for an exchange with my buds at Sensational Swappers. I used the Punch Pals set that I recently got with my SAB rewards. I love penguins every since that movie Happy Feet. I'm not much of a water-colorer, but I used the Aquapainters here with the ink pad smooshed in the lid technique. I realized it stinks when Brent Steele, head of Art Dept at SU, reminded us Thursday how watercoloring is supposed to be messy and outside the lines. I have trouble with that. *sigh*

As you may have heard, today's big announcemet is that Stampin' Up! is now partnering with Sizzix to offer the Big Shot die cut system! I'm so excited about the exclusive die cuts we'll have, including an awesome banner/pennant one! You can use it with like 50 different materials! Here are some things Shelli showed us today that she and her daughter made in preparation for her soon-to-be-born newest granddaughter, Phoebe. Just love her vintagey style!

This is an amazing fabric apron that Shelli wore during her presentation made of fabric die-cut with the Baskets & Bloom Die.

We're having a great time here at Convention, but I do have to admit that Lori and I snuck out of two classes Friday afternoon because we (okay, mainly I) had to have a nap! We then enjoyed an amazing dinner at The New Yorker Club, where I experienced two "Big O" cocktails (that's all I'm going to say about that!), before joining up with the Sensational Swappers group for a shoebox swap. What a great time we had! It was so great catching up with all the girls again and stamping some fabulous cards they designed. Here's a group picture of us.

Guess I better get to bed, 6:30 am will be coming way too fast and someone will need another nap! lol! Thanks for stopping by!
