I am back from convention and had such a great time hanging out with my stamping friends from all over the country and also Canada. Stampin Up demos are the nicest and most fun group of ladies! I always look forward to any kind of Stampin Up event but this one was super special to me. As many of you know, I am going through a divorce and I must have gotten several hundred hugs and well wishes from so many of you (some that I have never even met before)! Thank you all for your support, love and prayers. You are all a special group of women and I am so glad to have you all in my life. Stampin Up is the best company to be a part of. I never would have met all of these super women if I hadn't signed up 10 years ago. I will have these friends FOREVER! It is hard to describe the feeling of having so many awesome ladies genuinely caring about you and coming up and saying hi even if they had never met me…..just to show their support. Ok, I will stop now before I start crying again……
If you were at convention, you might have seen me in one of the booths demonstrating the distressing kit. Here is one of my favorite samples…..It is a 4×6 notepad I covered in River rock cardstock and then topped it with the Well worn designer paper.
This is a close up of the front part. I used the distressing kit to rough up the edges, curl the corners and color the white paper. Then I added an antique brad also.
