I'm so sorry I haven't posted like I said I was going to.  Remember I mentioned earlier about life getting in the way....?  Well, we just got  gut-punched.  One of my nephews that I am raising was just informed that his knee injury will need surgery and he won't be able to do any sports at all for the whole school year.  That wouldn't be so bad except that it's his senior year, he was top line-man last year for football and looking forward to being a half-back this year because the other kid graduated, he was 4th in state in wrestling last year and hoped to make it to first this year, and was going to place again in track in state.  So this is a big disappointment for him.  So sorry no posting.  We were just trying to get our bearings yesterday.

  I do have some more pics of some cards from convention that I liked.

      I loved the colors on this one.  But I forgot to write them down.  I think it is Bermuda Bay and Marina Mist.  Maybe Pacific Point.  The brown is Baked Brown Sugar and the image is stamped in Baked Brown Sugar.  The stamp set is "Wetlands" found on pg. 69 of the main catalog.  I love that set!
  And this one is done in neutrals.  Early Expresso, Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, and some Soft Suede ink.  I love how she did the background and then embossed the butterfly on top, then inked around the butterfly.  It was very striking.

    Well, that is it for now.  I hope to post again in a day or two with the pics from class.  Until then have a stampin good day!

  Well,  life really got in the way.  I didn't realize it had been this long since I posted anything to my blog.  I have been to convention again and had a great time at the StampinUp! 25th Celebration  July 18, 19, and 20th in Salt Lake City.  All attendees got an amazing backpack for a bag.

  I met two new friends

Met up with some old friends and had dinner at Benihana.

 Got to meet Ronald McDonald and have a picture taken with him for my grandkids.  (He's TALL!)

And got some pictures of some fabulous cards!

  And got to attend some great classes.  Everyone there was able to win a prize from the Prize Patrol.  I got the Bow Maker Die for the Big Shot!  I was wanting one!!  Anyway it was a great time.  And I have since come home and had one Stamp Class and will have another this next Saturday.  August 10th at 10:00am.  Should be able to remember that.  And in October we will be having our 3rd Annual Stamping Retreat.  Oct. 10, 11, and 12.  It has been so much fun in the past and am really looking forward to it.  Got any great Holiday ideas to make?  Taking any and all suggestions!

    Better go for now.  I will post the cards we did last class tomorrow.  Until then have a stampin good day!
