Back From Convention!

Hello to all! I arrived home from convention yesterday and while I had a great time I am also happy to be home with my family again. There were about 3,000 demonstrators at convention this year and wow it was exciting. I learned so much that I will share with you over time.
I just loved this dress that was in the Memento Mall. It is made completely of cardstock and Designer Series Paper. It was just so pretty. I will be sharing more photos with you this week but first I wanted to share a little about some exciting news.
We got to see the My Digital Studio in action and I am super excited about this new product that Stampin'Up! will soon have available to all of you. I am completely digital in my photo taking and I love the idea of being able to easily make projects with my photos and still use our wonderful stamp designs and colors. I can't wait to get my hands on it.
Also Stampin'Up! announced a fantastic hostess special for Sept.1- Nov. 30. If you haven't hosted a workshop in a while or have never hosted one then this is the time for you. If your workshop has $250 in merchandise sold during this time you can pick anything from the New Holiday Mini (expect the My Design Studio and the hostess sets) for only $10 this includes the Sizzix Items! Now if you haven't heard Stampin'Up! has patnered with Build-A-Bear to bring you some super cute stamp sets, Sizzix Dies and Designer Series Paper. These are only available through Stampin'Up! While at convention they offered those of us attending the chance to buy our very own Stampin'Up! Build-A-Bear. She comes with a birth certificate just like the ones you see in stores but she also has a Stampin'Up! Apron for doing workshops and classes and a stamp that says Life without Stamps Unbearable! My roommates and I couldn't resist and we each bought one. Are they not the cutest things. I roomed with Sarah, Rose and Beth and had the very best time. They are awesome ladies and I am so glad that we got to meet and more importantly that they are now my friends. Sarah and Beth are also both from Saint Joseph so I am sure that we will be stamping together again! It was Rose, Beth and my first convention and Sarah's second so she was our expert and guide! She was the best, knowing just where to eat and so much more. Ladies, if any of you are reading this thank you for sharing convention with me and I hope we can do it again.
Tomorrow night and Thursday are club so if you would like to attend please let me know. Thank you for stopping by and be sure and come back tomorrow when I will share some more convention pictures with you. Also I haven't named my Build-A-Bear yet so if you have a great idea please leave me a comment and I will post which one I decide on. Have a great day, Tonya

Did I mention that I'm a fan of the name "RazzleBEARy"? Oh yeah you already knew that! Just kidding - but seriously I couldn't resist. You are such a sweetie and if we don't do it again next year you'd better bet that in 5 years I'll be the first to sign up to room with you and Kaylee!!! :) Hey also, would you approve me as a tweeter? It keeps saying you're restricted or something! Off to post some pics on my blog - probably of you so you'd better check it out!!! :)
