SU Regional Seminar in Lincoln, NE

Oh my gosh! I had SO much fun @ the Regional Seminar! Look at all the card swaps I came home with?! It was such a great experience! I left yesterday @ 8:45A . . . got to Lincoln around 12:15P. Once we got into the hall, we found seats and started swapping! It was alot like Trick or Treating, but for cards. :o) The seminar lasted until 5:00P and then I drove home . . . in some hellacious rain storms in Platte City, MO and St. Joseph, MO I might add! I was only about 1 hour from home by then, so I just threw on my wipers on high and white knuckled through it! :o)

I learned some GREAT ideas . . . a couple of them we're going to do at the Easter Workshop, on February 20th. How cute is this little basket?! I made this in a matter of minutes this morning! Take 2-Bigz Scallop Envelope die, 1-Desiger Series Paper (DSP) cut to 1"x12" (for handle), cut coordinating DSP 1 3/4" x 7 3/4" and score @ 2 1/4" and 5 1/2". Adhere together and viola' . . . you're done! If you want a thicker basket, you can cut the DSP 2" x 7 3/4" . . . it'll make it a bit wider. Wouldn't this be cute with some Easter grass, jelly beans, and Peeps?!

Today I'm going over to Jenny's house. Her friend, Nancy, is in from Minnesota, along with her daughter and daughter's friend! Jenny's having us all over for an afternoon crop @ her house. I haven't met Nancy, but have heard so much about her, from Jenny, over the years. I'm SO excited to finally meet her. I promise to sneak a picture of all of us (they think I'm bringing my camera to show them stuff from yesterday . . . HA HA HA . . . do I have news for them?!) Scott, Jenny's husband, is going to fix us Taco Soup for dinner! Scott is an absolute wonderful cook and enjoys trying out new recipes, so we know it'll be delicious!

Here are some close up pictures, of some of the cards I swapped for yesterday . . . aren't they beautiful? Thanks for stopping by the craft room!
