Uniquely You!

Morning everyone! What do you think about all the CHA and Stampin' Up! Convention news that everyone has out there? It sure is an exciting time, isn't it?

Alright, onto the card! Today I used the Stamping 411 sketch for this week to make my wild and crazy (kind of guy...remember that movie?) card. Once again I had my box of current stamp sets out and the sentiment is what caught my eye this time. I decided to work around what being myself (or yourself) means. You know, sometimes that means being a little different and that is okay. So...my grasshopper is Melon Mambo instead of green and my paper combination is definitely bright and kinda crazy!

Enough of my babbling! I have some fun news for you guys! I have a Convention Buddy. A Convention Buddy is a wonderful person who is headed to convention that will call/text/e-mail news about the convention as well as shop at the Momento Mall for you. My buddy's name is Sarah and she is just SO excited to be going and I'm excited I get to feel like I'm at the convention when I'm not able to be there! Tomorrow morning she gets to go into the Momento Mall and do some shopping...she'll be getting me some good stuff too...so excited! I'll probably post a little later tomorrow so I can give you guys some news if I have it!

Finally, I must tell you about Mandy's sale at limeLIGHT Papercrafts this week! This week the June Bug and Lemonade Make Me A Favor kits are on sale for just $5 each! I'll be purchasing a kit to use as 1st day of school favors for teachers and staff at my son's school. Also, all Colorbox Cat's Eyes are $1 and finally purchase $25 or more and you get to choose one free jar of Shimmerz! Just add what color you'd like on the comments line during check out!

On the agenda for this week...convention news hopefully tomorrow, Thursday is limeLIGHT's sketch and product challenge as well as our "big" project reveal for August. I can't wait to show you what I've made. The theme is back to school so you know you'll want to check out all the DT member's blogs for fun ideas!

Phew that was a lot of reading for you wasn't it! Are you glad to know I'm done typing now? Go, have a super day! Get some crafting in if you can!
