2010 SU Convention

Myself and my fellow "Tartan Stampers" arrived back from Convention tonight.  A HUGE congratulation to Dawn, Elaine and Kara who received awards for their hard work!!
I had a great weekend, the company and friendship was fantastic.  I even got to meet "THE" Shelli Gardiner.

Over the next few days I post some pics.
I will start off with some of the items I made to take with me to Convention.

This is a small bag I decorated with a bow to hold a small gift for my Upline Dawn.  I also made a similar one for my fantastic "Roomie" Sharon.  The bow is very simple to make with the Basic black grossgrain ribbon.

Card Candy Swap
I made these toppers using the fantastic Artistic Etchings Stamp Set.  I used Real red, Crumb Cake and Basic black inks and card Stock.  I made 10 sets and swapped with other attendees.  I will show you the ones i got in return later (they were amazing!!)

I made a brooch using the Grossgrain striped ribbon.  I used self cover buttons in the centre which are covered in black grossgrain.  I attached them to a small gift card.  I again made 10 of these to swap.

Gorgeous projects. I especially like your card candy and the 3D project.
Thanks so much for the beautiful bag that you customised and the special gift inside. My Pandora bracelet is filling up.

Dawn said...

Thank you for my present Fiona, you are a very thoughtful person.
I must unpack to take photos of everything.

Your 3d swap was amazing you replicated those SU cardigans so well.
I loved your card candy too.

Thank you Fiona for swapping with me at Convention.

I was lucky enough to get the Happy Aniversary card which I have cased as a Valentine card - but I now wish I had got to swap with you about 5 times as I love all your swaps pictured here!!
