Canberra here we come!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Only one week to go and we are off to Canberra. I am traveling up with my good friend Sue, and we will meet the others up there. We have our bags half packed, and our swaps nearly completed.
Sue and I will then travel to Tassie, for a well earned holiday, (we think anyway) No husbands, just the two of us and our credit cards.

Conference name tags

Conference is fast approaching, so have been busy making swaps and names tags for my small but wonderful group. I have a group name, so have tried to incorporate that into the tag as well. Donna's (my upline) gave me a idea to hang the group name off our names. Thanks Donna.

Recipe: Stamps - (Level 2 hostess) Rustic Rooster, Big deal Alphabet

Well girls I hope you like them, they look better when you have hold of them. See you at conference when we all met up.

Stampin' Up! is becoming more aware of scrap-booking, and have introduced some really beautiful designer series paper (12 x 12). I have a couple of pages for you to take a look at, using 2 different sets of papers.

I am really happy with the way this page turned out. We had a family reunion over Easter, so it was a great time to get some family photos. I love the 2 step stamp set Flower Fancy.
