While visions of Stampin' Up! dance in my head....

I can't believe it....I've waited and waited to be able to attend the Stampin' Up! Convention again and tomorrow the adventure begins!

I have packed all of my cards (151 of them!!) and 3D items (50 of them!!) to swap with other stampers.... and a few of my stampin' supplies I'll need for the Make and Take classes I've signed up for.  I haven't packed clothes and stuff yet but I will do it in the morning.  Mike is coming home at noon and we'll pick up two of my team members (and a friend's hubby!) and head out to the airport.  Mike is our driver and will be delivering us to the airport for our 5:45 p.m. flight. 
I'm SO excited.

I'm going to be posting from Salt Lake City during the 6 days I'm there.  I've been waiting for several weeks to post these first swap cards.  While I was recovering from my ankle surgery I kept thinking about this card design and one day I finally sat down and made it.  Robin, my upline, did the 'happy stamper's dance" with me.  It just makes me SMILE!   She told me I shouldn't post pics until the week of convention so...whew!....I finally can!  (Thanks Robin!)  I made two versions....creating cards combining two things I love...Stampin' Up! and Disney.  So....here they are....Created using all SU! products.  :-)
Mickey and Minnie are going to Convention!!  :-)
