Well. Friday night was definately a wild one. Everyone left by midnight and by 2am I was in the emergency room in Chelsea with a HORRID ASTHMA attack. Couldnt breathe. Luckily after 2 breathing treatments and 60 mg of PREDNISONE (not my favorite) I was doing much better and could go home.....Well today.....I think a med change is in order and YES to all my NURSY friends....I will make an appointment for MONDAY. Well here is to your health and mine. Have a wonderful Sunday.

Bandana Technique

Good afternoon,

I am posting from home today, feel like someone ran me over with a bull dozer.....I think someone on the plane traveling home sunday made me sick.....I feel like I am going to cough my lung up. Well I slept until 1:00pm, since I didnt sleep all night. Tonight I will be drinking Nyquil! Your card sample today is from Technique Class in September. What fun we had. If you have never come to technique class and you have lots of "stuff" you dont know what to do with, this is the class for you. You learn how to use "stuff". Well I am heading back to the couch, I just didnt want the day to pass by before posting your sample.

Love Laurie


Home at last

Finally after traveling forever yesterday (4am until 8:30pm) I am home from Utah. Here is an awesome picture of all 121 of us at the Snow Canyon Country Club where High School Musical 2 was you recognize it? I didnt, never saw that movie... dinner was fabulous and we watched "No reservations" on a big movie screen with our awesome new pink chinelle blankets from Shelli. We had theate candy, popcorn served in cones made from designer paper and all of the trimmings. What an awesome evening except for the low flying bats of course. Today I am sorting UPS boxes in my pjs.....jet lag set in this am when someone was knocking on the door.

Your card today is a picture I will get some swaps scannned tonight and start sharing.

Love L.


Here is your Sunday card.......
Chat tomorrow.


Hi Ladies,

Greetings from Utah. I am having an absolute blast. The top 121 demonstrators in NORTH AMERICA are here and our fearless leader Shelli Gardner. Chatted with her this morning, shared pictures of Sophie. We have really enjoying each other this year. Not too many "planned" events, alot more free time for shopping, sharing and just plain relaxing. Wednesday we had an awesome dinner (all of us together). Thursday we could hang out do some awesome make n take projects, and just plain be lazy. I actually read a whole book in two days! I also created my template for the Christmas Album in a day Class for December. It is way cute, you are all going to want to take this class. I have LOTS of new swaps. About 100 to be exact that are absolutely FABULOUS. We will be using these as templates for our Christmas and other holiday card classes. Work smarter not harder you know. OH....and we have been recieving lots of AWESOME presents every day. Cant wait to show you. Well.....I am signing off for now...Its time for lunch.

Love L.

A pretty peony for you.


a wedding card for you


A swap card designed by my friend Deb


A card I "cased" from my friend Nicole.


I made one right before I left for you to see. You cant see the glitter very well, but it was a beautiful card.


Well. We did it. We finished the Founders Circle Swaps. All of them are done and packaged and in the suitcase. I also put together my best technique pages for a technique book I am taking for the share. Only the 20 best pages are going in there....Alot to choose from. Here is the swap for all of you to enjoy. I may or may not be posting tomorrow. You may just get a card to look at. Same with Wed, thurs, Fri, Sat, and Sunday. I will tell you all about it when I get home.


Stamping on Sunday

There should be a song about Stampin on Sunday. Peggy is coming over today and we are stamping "Founders Circle" Swaps. I will post a completed one tomorrow. But for today here is your "card" of the day. Bridal Shower card was a hit. No of course I didnt keep a pix of it.....

Well we have 145 cards to complete. There are in various stages of doneness. Only 11 are completely done. What is Founders Circle? This is an annual incentive trip given from Stampin Up for the top 100 Demonstrators in US, Top 15 Rising Stars and the top 20 (I think) Canadian demos. It is a very exclusive trip with Shelli Gardner and a few staff. Usually for 5 days and it is a whole lot of fun. Special presents EVERY night on your bed......Pillow gifts we call them. Cant wait to share those with you next week. Well......more tomorrow.


Awesome Workshop Last Night

Well, spent the evening with my "Gleaner Girls" you all know who you are. We had a ton of fun as usual. Food was AWESOME (thanks to Evelyn and Bev). Matt showed up late and DID NOT stamp with us. Here is your card for Saturday. I have a Bridal Shower to attend and a party at a friends house....what a day. Poor Dave has to work 10 hours last night and turn back around and work eight more on Saturday. (I see more stamps in my future, but.....dont tell him).

Chat tomorrow. Feel free to post!! Laurie



Well ladies.

Here it is the second day of my blog. I have most of it set up......I will try to add some cards today for you to look at. Have a workshop tonight. Have some really cute things planned for September workshops. Looking forward to going to Bryce Canyon next week with Stampin Up.

I hope I get my swaps done this weekend. We need 135 swaps for the Founders Circle trip.

Here is a card for you today. This is made with the new "Big Shot". It cuts a lot of prep time for card and scrapbook making. You can do some pretty intricate things and reproduce them quickly.
Happy Friday


My First Blog......

Well, here I go. Everyone thinks I need a blog. Lets see if I can figure it out. I am pretty technologically challenged. So I will do my best to bring you lots of samples and lots of new pix's of great stuff.
Until the next time. Laurie
