Leadership Day 1

Wow!!  What a first day!  Can you say action packed?!!!  Many surprises and delights for sure!  At check in we received a fabulous bag!

We had a great opening session! It was so awesome to see Shelli (the CEO and Co-Founder) on stage!  For those of you that don't know, Shelli was involved in a very serious horse riding accident back in August and she suffered very severe injuries and had to learn to walk again.  Of course she came out to a standing ovation!

General session was followed by lunch and some great classes!  After a quick jaunt back to the hotel, we were then treated to an evening at the Downtown Aquarium in Houston.

It was an incredible evening!  Food everywhere, hands-on animal exhibits to enjoy and rides!

The first cowboy I have seen here in Texas!

Chocolate covered strawberries anyone?

Our very own scuba diver promoting our Company!

Rose Ellen, Rachel, Debbie and I

A REAL White Bengal Tiger!  Did you know that only 1 in 10,000 Bengal Tigers are White?!!

Tigers!!!  O MY!!

Ice sculptures galore!

Shrimp cocktail on ice

Dessert anyone?

Just Sayin"........

How many different ways can you use washi tape?

Can I tell you how much I LOVE to use it as part of a card's focal point?!!

Today's projects are created using the brand new Retro Fresh Washi Tape and a new stamp set called, Just Sayin', which also has coordinating framelits!  I KNOW!!!  Don't you LOVE stamp sets that have coordinating framelits!

My color combo is Crumb Cake, Coastal Cabana, and Tangerine Tango!  Both of the greetings are stamped in the tangerine tango, while I used the linen thread to tie-in the crumb cake card base!

These are so quick and easy, you are going to love mass producing these!

  • Basic Gray cardstock embellished with our new fringe scissors!
  • Crisp Cantaloupe cardstock embossed with the Decorative Dots embossing folder (Sale-a-bration)
  • Stamp Set - Starburst Sayings
  • Starburst Framelits

  • Dimensionals
  • Fringe Scissors
