Some SU! Convention EXCITEMENT!!!

HELLO!!!.. HELLO!!!.. I'm BACK... I've just spent the most AMAZING 5 days in GORGEOUS Melbourne with the MOST AMAZING, GORGEOUS and INSPIRING ladies at the Stampin' Up! Convention!!! Did I mention I had an AMAZING time!!??

I thought I'd share just a couple of pics with you... there will be MORE.. I just have to edit them all!!

I made a couple of little gifts for some of the GORGEOUS gals I was going with and thought I'd show you those. I had SO much fun making these and only wish I'd come up with the idea to make them a little earlier than I had.. you know.. coming up with a fabulous idea 3 days BEFORE I'm due to fly out, doesn't leave a girl much time, to get things done.. hahaha.. NEXT year.. I'll be much more organised... well that's the plan!!

So.. here is what I made:-


This year we had a choice of Clear Mount or Wood MOunt stamp sets in our Convention Bag... the problem.. what to take your Clear Mount stamp blocks in!!... Sooooo.. I made a little pouch to store them in!!! Cool!! Huh!!! But I couldn't just make a pouch.. I HAD to make a little co-ordinating Flower Brooch too!!.. I was SO happy with how they turned out.. and YES I did A HUGE happy dance, which involved copious amounds of squealing, hand clapping, jumping in the air and a little more squealing!!.. Just ask my mum.. I think she thought I'd gone a little crazy!!.. hahaha

The brooches were made using my Big Shot and the Flower Folds XL Die... AMAZING!!

Ooohh and just to get you in the mood for a barrage of COnvention Pics.. I thought I'd show you a couple of pics taken at the Airport just before we boarded our plane:-

Can you see how excited we were.... That's ME.. the GORGEOUS Sarah Klass and FABULOUS Lee (Lulla!!). It's a miracle we didn't get separated on the plane... all that EXCITEMENT!!! hahahha

And this last shot!!.. Well while she didn't come to Convention with me... and I'm sure she would've LOVED to have come.. she did mention it a few times... this is my GORGEOUS little Jorja... Miss Ella was hiding from the camera.. but everytime I got a little HOMESICK.. I just looked at this gorgeous pic.. and SMILED!!!..
And ... was SO excited to get to SQUEEZE her when I got back home!!!

 I'll be back soon with MORE excitement and photos from Convention!!

Thanks for stopping by.
