Where has the time gone? - AND BLOG CANDY ALERT!

Wow! I can't believe it has been almost 3 weeks since my last post! Sheesh! All I can say is, it is summer, I leave for convention in 2 days and we had some unexpected family emergencies. In my "free" time I have been making my convention swaps (or on SCS talking about my convention swaps). In my sleep I have been dreaming about swaps. At work I have been thinking about swaps, so basically, the last few weeks my life has been consumed with swaps! For my SBS sisters, I'm sorry I haven't been visiting your blogs lately, but I promise to catch up with you all after convention!!! For anyone who has visited my blog recently hoping for some updates, I'm sorry, but please check back later this week, I am going to set blogger to update my blog every day while I'm at convention and there will be some blog candy involved as a thank you for continuing to visit while I've been busy with my swaps!!! Disclaimer: I have never scheduled posts before, so if for some reason it doesn't work, I will get them all posted when I return, but I think its pretty simple, so unless blogger has a problem, they should be here.

So how about a sneak peak of one of my swaps? On the last night of convention I going travel back in time to the 80s, how cool is that? RockyMountainStamper on SCS organized 2 great parties (one on Friday Night and one on Saturday Night). And since Stampin' Up! is celebrating 20 years, we are going back 20 years to the 80s. Part of that nights events is doing a shoebox swap with about 11 people. This is the swap I designed for it. I tried to make it as simple as possible, since I have to pack all the supplies to make it, I'm very pleased with how it turned out. Here is what I used: Cardstock: Chocolate Chip, Riding Hood Red(new In Color), Tangerine Tango (new In Color), Whisper White; Ink: Chocolate Chip, Riding Hood Red and Tangerine Tango; Accessories: Ticket Corner Punch, Twill Tape, Vintage Brads, Tag Punch; Stamps: Fall Flair, Sincere Salutations, Twill Background.

OK, I"ll be setting up my posts for Wednesday, July 30th through Saturday, August 2nd. Blog Candy will be mention on one of those days, but you have to check back and see which day! Mwahahaha!!
