SU Regionals April 19th, 2008

Saturday, April 19th was my 1st SU Regional Convention. When I left my house at 7 AM I did not know what to expect. My morning started off when a man in the car next to me at the stop light on 6th and Wells told me I had a roll of tape sitting on top of the trunk of my car. Sure enough I turned around and there was a roll of duct tape. That duct tape stuck to my car all the way from Muskego, on the freeway to downtown at 6th and Wells. My wonderful son used the tape the night before and set it on the trunk of my car and forgot to put it away. Got to love duct tape!! How embarrassing, can't image what people were thinking as they saw me driving 60 miles an hour on the freeway with duct tape stuck to my trunk, lol.

OK, back to Regionals. Not sure how many people were there but I would have to say a few hundred. We received a free stamp set, "So Much" from the Spring/Summer catalog. I was so excited to get this set. I was planning on ordering because I thought it was great for scrapbooking and card making. We made several cards and scrapbook layouts throughout the day. I learned several new techniques, met lots of good people and took 154 pictures of cards and scrapbook pages that were displayed. I will share some of them with you as soon as I learn now to create a slide show. Stay tuned. The day ended around 5 PM. The group picture is me on the left, Michellle in the middle (my upline) and Liz another demonstrator under Michelle on the right.

Heartfelt Thanks

I think Heartfelt Thanks has to be one of my favorite stamp sets. It is so versatile for both cards and scrapbooking. I made 30 of this card for the card swap at Regional's on Saturday. I gave out my 30 cards and received 30 cards from other demonstrators. I got so many new ideas from some other demonstrators that attended Regional's. I will post some of them by the end of this week along with some pictures from Regional's.

Stamp Set: Heartfelt Thanks
Ink pads: Basic Black and River Rock ( this is my favorite In Color ink and it goes so well with black)
