I'm home now from the Stampin' Up! Convention. It's always overwhelming to decide what business ideas and creative ideas to implement first. My goal for the day is to go through all of my photos and notes and see what type of plan I come up with. I just have so much to share with you!!

For today, I want to share several pictures of the display boards....
Greetings from Salt Lake City! Our annual Stampin' Up! Convention is always so much fun! I've attended every single one since my first year in 2002. I love seeing my friends from around the US and Canada and, of course, I love the energy of being with 1000s of other SU! demonstrators!
The main stage is gorgeous this year!
There are 15 of the girls on my team here with me - some for the very first time!
Becky Higgins, the creator of Project Life, was introduced to us! I am so excited about this partnership and Project Life by Stampin' Up!
This was only the first day and I've already gotten so many ideas to share with all of you from classes and displays. Here are just a few pictures to tease you!

Thank you for participating in our Stampers Dozen "Hot, Hot, Hot" Blog Hop!
You've probably been noticing lots of summer themed projects being shared. My card might not at first seem like "summer" to you. Let me explain why it reminds me of summer....
During the summer, my husband and I like to go on walks later in the evening. We walk a mile or so down the road and when we turn around to come back home, we often see amazing sunsets! It's like the sky is God's canvas and He uses it to display His creativity through beautiful blendings of color.
That image of pink and orange in the sky is what inspired my "hot, hot, hot" summer card.
I started with a piece of Whisper White cardstock and blended Melon Mambo and Calypso Coral blendabilities markers....
....and the plain white cardstock became a gorgeous transition of color! The picture just does not do it justice!
The last step is to emboss the Swallowtail image using black powder. Watch my video to learn more!
This past Saturday was my monthly team meeting. For this gathering, we did a swap where we each prepared a card for everyone else to make. It's so much fun to see all of the different ideas! Here are a few of them....
Starting with the top left and going clockwise....
