CNY Shoebox Swap 5/14/11

YEAH!!! Tomorrow is one of those prized days that I get to spend stamping with my friends from all over NY and even PA! These will be my contributions to the swaps

This one will be my TWISTED swap. I'm hoping you can read the words on the sentiment. Or maybe not, if you are easily offended....but you were easily offended, you wouldn't be reading my blog :) This sentiment stamp made me laugh out loud when I saw it, so I had to get it. I ordered it online from Viva Las Vegas Stamps - boy do they have some doozies! The girl is from a clear set by Inkadinkadoo (I think). Her slippers even have fun flock on them :)
This is the inside of the card...yes, it's intentionally stamped upside down :)This is a crappy pictgure, but it's my ATC. It's supposed to look like a TV with one of those old test messages. This sentiment is a stamp, but I can't remember where I got it from. It's stamped on Vellum and then adhered to patterned paper to get the striped background. The bottom was punched with just a portion of the curvy label punch to make the "legs" on this old console TV.One of the girls heading up a table (you know Whoooo you are Heidi!) is a showoff and made a beautiful table centerpiece identifying the table number and said she didn't want to be a slouch and just put a number on a piece of paper.....well, guess what I had planned to do for my table....yep, put a number on a piece of paper. I crumbled under the pressure and went to work. This is not my original idea, I saw it on Splitcoast stampers and made my own version to mark Table #4, the BEST table! So there Heidi, lol!Thanks for stopping in! Have a great day!

I'll be back later with pictures from the swap when it's over!

Stampin' Up! Regionals - Hartford, CT

What a fun day I had at the Hartford, CT SU Regionals yesterday. Tons of inspiration, swaps, tips, tricks and laughs. Followed by some shopping at the local scrap book store (Wiggles and Giggles) and then a trip to IKEA which always makes me happy. It was a long day as I had to leave my house by 4:30 am, which meant waking up at 3:45 am (are you kiddin' me?!?) and we didn't get home until 12:30 sunday morning, but it was oh, so worth it! Here's some eye candy from the day:

Masculine Diva Swap Cards-2

Each month there are 10 Demo's that get together for the "Demo/Diva" club. The hostess for the month picks the swap theme and all the other members make swap cards using that theme. The hostess brings the Make & Take Project, so she doesn't have to make a swap card that month, but gets to take home one of everyone else's's a fun, fun group of gals. We always have alot of laughs! Here are the Masculine (boy or man) cards from February.Here is my swap card. It's supposed to look like one of those large stand up toolboxes: This is Sue's contribution
