Decisions, decisions... you all know I've been working on getting my craft room set up. Well, I finally decided on a paint color and got the paint...sooo..just for fun, I'm going to have a contest. Everyone gets ONE guess at what color I'm painting it-and yes, of course it's a Stampin' Up! color. I had the paint matched electronically to a piece of cardstock, and I LOVE IT! I hope I still LOVE it when it's plastered up on all 4 walls!
So...start guessing....there will of course, be a prize!!

Winner! And Convention Stuff!

Ok...I'm back already...two posts within one hour...whew!

The winner of the "Get to 50" Blog Candy is KRISTI!!
So, check your email, Kristi, 'cause I've sent ya some questions!
And now...I realize I'm a little later than most of the other people who went to convention this year, but finally, here are some of my convention pics.
First of all, let me say that I am very upset with myself because I managed to get so many pictures of all the beautiful, projects, presentations....that I forgot to get pictures of one of the best parts of Convention-my FRIENDS! :( So, my appologies go out to Carey Rogers, Tina Taves, Diane Klieger, and anyone else who may not see themselves featured here. You guys are all awesome and I hope to see you again soon!
OK...these are pictures of things that were featured on the display boards or in the Legacy Room at the Stampin' Up! home office in Riverton. Just a few of my favorite ideas:
Isn't this beautiful? Everything you see here is made of cardstock, paper, ribbon, and embellishments. I just LOVE IT!
This is an awesome scrapbook layout where the designer apparently used Decor Elements on a window sheet, and then placed that between two layers of a cardstock "frame". I think it's great-unique, creative, and quite pretty.
Now...this is a very simple project, but one I just never thought of. I'm Tote-ally gonna alter the clock in my craft room now! LOL

This was part of the Christmastime display in the Legacy Room at the Riverton Campus. Now, I'm not much of a Christmas gal myself, but do love me some candles, and in our house, we LOVE LOVE LOVE what better combination that music notes around candles. I really like this..and plan to make a set for the holidays.

And of course, I had to post at least one picture of the lovely Shelli Gardner and her daughter Sara. I smiled and laughed A LOT during their was so heartwarming to see them work and play together as mother and daughter. They were great...and oh yeah...they showed some pretty amazing projects too, I must say.
Ok well, that's all for now...more later I'm sure. I promise to get back on schedule with the blog posting! So please don't give up on me yet!! Thanks!
