Leadership happenings…

Leadership stared with a bang and a General Session in the Chapin Theater with Shelli welcoming everyone. I joined up with my SINKS friends to share in the fun!

And there was lots of new information to be shared with everyone.

The afternoon meal was a time to laugh and share with each other. We were pampered with a lovely plated luncheon.

After lunch and a break out session we returned to the theater for a presentation from Shelli Gardner, laughter was in the air as she presented her projects!

And another one with the coordinating framelit and stamp set. Isn’t the Mini Treat Bag Framelit Die too cute?

The afternoon ended up with stamping and some time in the Gathering Place. One of my favorite areas – I’ll try and share some photos of the displays with you tomorrow.

But mean time I excited about some cards I designed and entered into my first ever Leadership Design Contest. I don’t expect to be one of the winners since there are so many gifted demonstrators out there, but it is always fun to participate, right? And for me I love to try new things, share, and be challenged too!

Here is one of the boards we hung our cards on – I’m sure when I see it next it will be full of wonderful cards from my fellow Leadership attendees.

This first card is one done with the Moon Lake stamp set and uses the Adventure Bound Designer Series Paper too. I really love the way it turned out – I’m so a water person!

And I love this set with it’s images. And great for all kinds of occasions with the sentiments the set includes.

These next two cards include techniques that will be high lighted in my March Technique Class. This first one uses the Cheerful Critters stamp set.

Cheerful Critters Leadership 2015 Contest

It was one of my first choices from the Catalog since I just love the little animals the set contains – fun images to play with and color with the four NEW Stampin’ Blendabilities colors that you’ll find in the Occasions Catalog! And the technique is easy and a lot of fun too!

This last card uses the Sale-a-bration stamp set, A Happy Thing. How can you not love this pudgy little bird? And the Bermuda Bay Sequin Trim – love it! It is also part of my March Technique Class.
