Home from Leadership

I am sorry I didn't post last week...I was busy getting ready for Stampin' Up!'s leadership here in Orlando. I always love Stampin' Up! events. It is a truly wonderful company! I met up with old friends, made new friends and got to see the new catalog!
Thursday night was the Manager's reception. SU reserved a whole section of Universal Studios just for us! We were afraid they were going to serve us hotdogs and popcorn for dinner....boy were we wrong! Asparagus, portabello chicken, garlic mashed potatoes, choclate fondue....and churros! It was soo yummy! They had several rides open for us but I am a ride wimp. I watched and then left early to get some much needed rest. It was a busy week! Here is a picture of my buddies and me with Spiderman. My son was pretty impressed that I got to meet the webslinger in person!
I learned lots of new stuff and got lots of great swaps at leadership. I think it is very interesting how great minds work alike. Check out these three swaps from three different people. The first one is the one I made for a shoebox swap. Notice the large scalloped circle behind my focal point. That is made with the Big Shot die.

Now look at this swap made by my roomie Lynn....she lives clear across the country in CA. We did not compare swaps before we saw each other. Notice the same die? I think her card is totally adorable!
Now here is the third swap made by my new friend Allison. She is the funnest person! She was all alone so we told her she had to hang out with us. I think she liked us as much as we liked her. She is from North Carolina. Again, check out the scallop die!
What I love about this coincidence is that we all use the same tool and came up with totally different projects. They are all unique!
So, if you don't have this big circle scallop yet, you better get it! It is incredibly versatile! You need it! :o)

Looks like fun! It's always neat to see what everyone does with the same material or theme given to them!
