Shoebox Swappin'....

Well I've been really bad lately and haven't stopped long enough to post to my blog.  (Sorry Mom...)
I have so many things I've wanted to share so I thought I'd start with this...
On Saturday I went to an awesome Stampin' Up! event that was put together by my friend (and upline) Robin and her friend, Kimberly.  We met at the Manassas Volunteer Fire Department.  It was the first (of hopefully MANY more) "Shoebox Swap" for Northern VA Stampin' Up! Demonstrators.

Here's a photo of most of us after all our cards were made....What a GREAT group of ladies!



What in the world is a "Shoebox Swap" you ask?  Well....  Each demonstrator creates one card...any theme....and cuts out all the parts and pieces for the card x how ever many demonstrators are coming.  You put all the supplies needed to create your card in a...SHOEBOX.....  :-)  When you are at the swap you go table to table and you make one of each card that all of the demos created and VOILA! you go home with a whole bunch of AWESOME cards.

So....I thought I'd share a few of my faves....

Here's the one I designed....
The picture isn't great but at least you can get the idea.....




Here are a few of my faves that were designed by some of the other demos...and I got to make one of each of them to keep.  I actually came home with 27 beautiful cards!!  LOVE IT!









It's always fun to see other people's designs and also to see different ways to use products that I may have not thought of.  These women inspire me SO much and I feel so blessed to know each of them.
Ok....so I'd best get busy because I have several other things I want to blog about!

Have a magical evening!
Michelle
