Yesterday was the MN SCS Summer Stamp Fest. Twenty-five ladies from around Minnesota came to gather for some stamping, demos, doorprizes, and socializing. It was a fun day but it went way too fast! I brought my camera but do you know I forgot to take one photo? I organized the get together and I guess I was too busy announcing door prizes, and making sure things were running smoothly.
One of the optional things to sign up for was a gift exchange. You bring a gift and then your name goes into the drawing to receive someone else's gift. This is what I created for the exchange. Surprise, surprise, it's a cupcake ensemble! I used designer paper from a set of papers I received for my birthday from my friend Kristina. I have been saving these papers for awhile and finally decided to cut into them. There's a tin decorated with the papers a cupcake purse with M&M's in them, a post-it note keychain, covered notebad, a tictac holder, and a jumbo clothespin. It was a lot of fun to put together.
Over the next couple of days I'll post my 12 x 12 page swap and the shoebox card swap I made for the event. Right now I have to get busy cranking out a bunch of swaps for the Stampin' Up! convention coming up in a few short weeks!
