The only one that is very different from what we were supposed to do is the card in the left hand corner. The whisper white piece was supposed to be dry embossed and then brayered with color, but I never got a chance to do the dry embossing at convention, and I do not have any of the plates so I just used some of the rub-ons from another project and then stamped some of the flowers from the Eastern Blooms stamp set. I am going to make the scrapbook page into a 12 x 12, but I do not have any coordinating 12 x 12 at this time. I really liked these make & takes, even though I didn't have time to finish them all at convention. The coolest was the little box in the upper right hand corner. The flower is made using 1 1/4" grosgrain ribbon and stitching it together. It was so easy to do!

Rarely Used - Thanks 2x2.75 embossing folder (includes 4 embossing folders) - SOLD
Rarely Used - Feel Better 2x2.75 embossing folders (includes 4 embossing folders) -SOLD
When I say rarely used it means I used them less the 5 times. Most likely about 2 times. The machine itself has been used more than that, but it is in excellent shape.
If you were to purchase all this brand new it would be around $160.00. I am asking $75 plus shipping for all items still available (see above for list). I will consider a reasonable offer =-)

I am estimating it to weigh under the 20 lbs required for the Flat Rate box and I think I will be able to fit it into the one that costs $9.80.
Email me if you have any questions!

I had an awesome time at convention! It was just amazing. The first 2 days were a bit overwhelming. The amount of people, wow! I will share some of my memories, but right now I need to get caught up with life here at home!
I have some pictures to share, but blogger seems to be having technical difficulties!

*Note* This post was written on July 27th.
Well today is the last day of convention and tonight I get to go back in time to the 80s! part of the activities tonight are dressing up 80s style. I'll be wearing jeans with a hot pink tank top. Over the tank top I will wear an over sized men's shirt that I cut the collar out so that it could hang off my shoulder (think Flashdance) then one of those plastic round buckles to bunch up the shirt (not sure what that is called). Big gold hoop earrings, 20 jelly bracelets, blue eyeshadow and eyeliner, lip gloss, BIG HAIR and jelly shoes!!! If I have time, I'm also going to paint my nails and toe nails blue. I tried part of the outfit on before leaving and it is totally 80s! I might just post a picture when I get back =-)
Tomorrow I will be returning home to my wonderful supportive husband and beautiful little girl.
