Happy Birthday to Shelli!

Shelli page

Shelli will celebrate a special Birthday in October so we showered her with 6 x 6 scrapbook pages and Birthday cards.  This is the page I designed and made for her.  The picture was taken many years ago at the Omaha Regional.  Below is the birthday card.

Founder's Tea Time and Swap

Founders Swap
This is my swap for Founders... 125 of them!  You won't believe all the awesome cards/projects I received.  Attend an event soon at my stamping spot to take a peak.


Stamping BFF's Deb Valder, Jan Burnett, Linda Heller and Me!


I skipped supper tonight... I knew they would have something awesome to eat. 
Should I have Germain Chocolate, White Chocolate or Hawaiian Coconut?  I'll just take all three!

Way more happened today, but it will have to wait until another day.  Have to get to bed so I can rise up early and head to Kanub, UT to visit Stampin' Up!'s manufacturing!

Last night was a magical... I felt like a princess entering the Bryce Canyon Ballroom.  The room was filled with so much beauty it was hard to take it all in.  Each chair was draped with beautiful bows of Wisteria Wonder Silk...

Our table name cards where each placed in a unique teacup filled with real roses.  Everyone at the table had a different cup.  The past few days have been a bit emotional and when I walked into the room my mom's presence were everywhere.  While this is an amazing feeling it is also one of great emotion.  She collected fancy teacups in my childhood and my teacup was blue and ivory, it would have been her choice of all the cups at the table! 

I kept my composure until my eyes connected with Linda Hellers across the room and it was all over.  The flood gates were starting to open and I was able to get outside before the the water started to come.  It wasn't long before Linda joined me and thank heavens for special friends.  She and I shared a special moment overlooking St. George, Utah and the painted red mountains.  What a site and what a great comfort.


Our little get acquainted mixer during the day was to find 7 others who had lace dollies on their name tags.  That evening we also were seated at the same table to enjoy meeting new friends.  Our team name is the Lace Dollies so stayed tuned I know there will be other fun things we get to do together thought the next few days.

Here is our delicious dinner... now I am off to breakfast cause I am starving!  Catch ya later.

It has been an incredible day, but I really need to lay my head down and go to sleep.  Lots more fun tomorrow!

I'm in heaven!

The tune and the words to that song keep going through my head.  Arrived last evening at the Courtyard by Marriot, in St. George Utah to attend Stampin' Up! Founders Circle and it is pure joy!  I am blessed with a balcony room that over looks St. George and the mountains.  Late morning was spent by the pool soaking up the sun. 


Stampin' Up! takes over the entire hotel and look at the amazing Decor Elements! 

and the cute chicks too!


This is on my door, Stampin' Up! thinks of everything.

Will post more later about the day and also I hear there is a pillow gift at night?
