Stampin' Up! Convention Highlights Part 2

Happy Sunday! Can I just say "Home Sweet Home"! I had a great time at the Stampin' Up! Convention, but it's nice to be home the land of naps! lol! Well, I have to confess, I did take a few naps during Convention too, I'm just too danged old!

The card above is the swap card I made for the Artisan Award dinner, you might recognize it from the Sneak Peek I showed here. Here I am with Shelli and Brent at the dinner (ignore my ungraceful pose and half-closed eyes!), what an amazing time!

I uploaded 263 more pictures to my Flickr and put them in this
Stampin' Up! Convention 2009 Part 2 folder so you can check them out! These include some great display board photos of the new stamp sets Things I Love, Hello Again, Sweet Seasons, and Tree Trimmings. I'll post a few highlights here for you!

I LOVE these new Simply Adorned Charm necklaces that will be available in the new Holiday Mini Catalog on September 1! I wasn't sure until I saw how fabulous they are in person...gorgeous chain and beveled glass and you can change the inside art piece, even better than the soldered ones they remind me of!

I loved this display room that looked like a quaint little cottage. Is that quilt amazing or what?!!

And you know how I love Halloween, so check these out:

Hope you enjoyed those highlights. If you want to see more, don't forget to go to my flickr Stampin' Up! Convention 2009 Part 2! I'm afraid the real world calls for me tomorrow as I have to return to school. I don't know how the summer went by so fast!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!

I looked at all your convention photos. Thanks for sharing. Great to see you and all the Artisan winners.

It was fun to see the sneak peeks from the Winter mini.

I'm so behind at looking at your blog because of vacation. The card you made for the swap is TO DIE FOR! That card totally screams Angie. LOVE IT!

Congrats again on the your Artisan Award win! I was so happy that you stopped to say hi at convention because I was looking to meet you! Next time we need to come up with a Deadwood code phrase or pick a Deadwood character name in advance! I had hoped to be clever, but blurting out Deadwood obscenities might scare the neighbors! It was so great to meet you!
