I have been so busy this past 2 weeks. Convention was a blast, and then my daughter and I arrived at her home and I have been spending time with her before going home to Bellingham this weekend. We have been dealing with baby stuff and scrapbooking our first Stampin’ Up Convention experience. I will be scanning my scrapbook pages after I get home.
First, let me show you the suitcase I made her to carry her swaps in at convention. I used the Santa stamp image from the new Christmas Punch hostess set to decorate the outside and used the alpine ribbon from last Christmas’s catty for the straps as that was a favorite of hers. She was able to put all her swaps inside.
Here is another view of the suitcase. I used retired in colors for this suitcase. Stamp set: Christmas Punches, Cardstock & ink: Riding Hood Red, Other: Natural twine, Alpine Ribbon, Crystal Effects.
Now for the fun news, on Monday after our return from SLC, I was invited to go with Jennifer and Scott to her ultrasound appt that would tell her the sex of our first grandchild. Boy, has technology changed! It was awesome to get the first definitive view of my new grandson! We still don’t know what they will name him, but the boy is very active and we are all excited and eager to welcome him. He may even join us for Christmas. I am so enjoying my time with Jennifer and Scott as they prepare for this new addition.
