My roommates for Convention are two amazingly talented stampers!!  Cindy Elam of Heart’s Delight Cards and Heidi Baks of RunningwScissorsStamper are also on the design team with me at SUO Challenges.  How exciting that I get to be one of their roommates!!  Needless to say, I could not just make any old thing for these two so I went out of my box and got to thinking about 3-D projects.  One thing led to another and this is what I came up with.

I found these adorable little mini paint cans at the Container Store and little tins too.  I decorated them with Floral District DSP and created flowers for the tops of the paint cans out of  Floral District fabric.  The flowers are made with the Fun Flowers die and I used fabric stiffener to add a little oomph to the fabric.  The tags were created using My Digital Studio and then printed by the print services at Stampin’ Up.  They came just the right size and with the little hole punched.  I just had them laminated to protect them.  I promise that Cindy has a tag too, you just see the back side of hers in the tag picture.  Actually, I made two for each.  One for their paint cans and one to add to their Convention bags (to help tell them apart from the thousands of others that are just the same).  I filled the cans with some little goodies to make the trip better.

Yesterday was the most amazing and inspirational day I have had with Stampin’ Up!  My second upline, Lisa Curcio, took this picture right before my 5 year walk.  What an wonderful 5 years it has been!! The theme for Convention 2010 is I Am….  My classes yesterday were I Am Doing Business My Way with Rhonda Wade and Tami White; I Am Savvy with Dawn Griffith, Laura Mulligan and Meg Wheeler; and I Am Reaching Out with Emily Montoya.  So many great ideas for classes and clubs, ways to be a better demonstrator and, of course, amazing projects!!  I feel like a groupie at a rock concert as I meet demonstrators whose work I so admire.  Can’t wait for more today.  I’ll have more picture tomorrow of Make and Takes and updates on today’s activities!  If you want to see some more pictures, run right over to Heidi’s blog (posted above) and see the great convention bag, Main Stage and project wall pics and the cool things from Momento Mall!

Hope your week is going great.  Thanks for stopping by today.  Another swap tomorrow.  This one was for the Control Freaks swap.  See you then!
