Convention 2012 Lip Dub, "I Am"

I've been lucky enough to spend the last few days in Salt Lake City, Utah, attending the Stampin' Up! Convention..  It's been an absolute blast meeting fun people, learning new ideas and techniques, and just hanging out with others who get as excited about the same things I do.

(Well, maybe not quite as excited...from what I hear, that's pretty hard to do!)

I'll post a few more things about it once I get home, rest my brain a little, and can fully open my eyes again.

In the meantime, check out this fun video created by the staff of Stampin' Up! using this year's motivational Convention theme, "I Am".

Brown paper packages...

This is a little gift for my sister's birthday.   I wanted a cute way to dress it up a little bit more than my usual wrapping paper and curling ribbon.

(My youngest sister says curling ribbon is 'sooooo yesterday'.   What can I say?  I'm a little behind the times.)

So instead, I used kraft postal wrap, and then tied it with Bermuda Bay polka dot ribbon (retired).  Then I added a letter from the new Typeset Alphabet Bigz set, a tiny flower punched from the Itty Bitty Shapes punch pack, and for a little sparkle, a rhinestone. 

Simple.  Easy.  Works for me.

And hopefully for my sister.
