2008 Convention - Day 2

Today was the first full day of convention activities kicking off with the general session at 8:30am. I'm not sure how so many people can muster so much energy at that hour of the morning - but I witnessed it happen. Lots of fabulous demos including some peeks at new wall decor elements! I'm already brewing up some new class ideas from what I saw today.

Plenty of pictures to go through, but for now, thought you might enjoy seeing a couple of the make-n-take projects we made today featuring one of the new silhouette sets, "Inspired by Nature"

First, a card featuring the new In Color, Kiwi Kiss ...

Next, a gift bag featuring the new In Color, Tangerine Tango. This bag also uses the brand new So Saffron 7/8" polly twill ribbon and Tangerine Tango double-sided designer paper.

Tonight was the "Awards Night" with entertainment by acappella group, Tonic Sol-fa from Minneapolis. Great show! (never thought I'd hear 'The Lion Sleeps Tonight' done 'Muppet Show Style')

We're supposed to hear more new product announcements tomorrow ... stay tuned ...

p.s. Colors might not be quite accurate - using my hotel bed as a photo backdrop and the tableside lamp for extra light (the flash washes everything out) ... will take better pics when I get back to the Stamp Garage.
