The Stampin' Up! Regional was in Milwaukee on Saturday....and we got a pretty rocky start. This is US at 6:30 am on Highway 41.....yep....FLAT TIRE! I ran over something and it put a 4" slash in the side of my "NEW" tires!!!!
Well - I'll tell ya.....I've never changed a tire before - but I'm pretty mechanical and I'm sure I could figure it ou....but I WASN'T GONNA DO IT! I got on the phone and started making calls...home first and my hubby wouldn't answer the phone - he rarely does...it's never for him! LOL! My sister got me some numbers and I had a tow truck on the way - with what we thought was a tire. No time to mess around here - we had SUPER important business to attend!!!!
In the mean time, Nikki (my team member from up north) and Bonnie (a demonstrator from Stratford) tells Rachael and I that they will change the tire! WHAT? I tell them not to worry about it - the tow truck guy can do it! While we are waiting for the tow truck - these two SUPER HEROS get to work! It was a GOR JUS sight to see.......
Thank goodness I always carry a blanket in the back of the old van - it sure came in handy!
The tow truck guy showed up without a tire - because I would have to buy a new rim....I DIDN'T CARE.....we had SUPER IMPORTANT BUSINESS TO ATTEND! Didn't he understand that????
We he got there Nikki & Bonnie had the blown tire off and the spare (bicycle tire) off and ready to mount! He told me to call the dispatcher and cancel him - now I know I didn't change the tire - but this was a pretty important job too! LOL Super nice guy - I slipped him a $20! We got things put back together and headed to Oshkosh for a new tire - $110 later we were "ON THE ROAD AGAIN" (in the tune of "On the Road Again!").
Our intentions were GREAT - we left the house ON TIME! Wanting to arrive in Milwaukee at around 8-8:30....It was now about 8:15!!!! With a few construction detour problems - Rachael got us to the Midwest Airlines Center.
AND THE FUN BEGAN!!!! Here's Bonnie, Nikki, me & Rachael...

Everyone who attended the Regional has about 2 weeks to hold a qualifying workshop and they will get this NEW Party Hearty stamp set from the next NEW catalog for FREE!!!!! I LOVE my SU!
This little cutie is like a wine glass charm - so you know which glass of rotten fruit is yours - OPPS! Did I just say that? I don't like wine...you know it's just rotten fruit! LOL
It's made with chipboard - you cover it with our BEAUTIFUL designer series paper, insert a Jumbo Brad and ribbon and WAA LAA!
Here's the template:
Aren't these little baskets cute? On the cruise TV channel - that had tons of TV clips of SU executives demonstrating projects on their local Salt Lake channel - Shelly used these to hang on a Valentine tree.
Here's the template:
Here's a sample using the Bouncing Brayer technique....this is on my blog sometime last year (I think) as a tutorial!
They had some GREAT ideas for the Pretties Kits too - here's a couple of them. The dyed this flower with a reinker and folded it in half:
This one is dyed with Purely Pomegranate reinker, they applied our new Tombo Adhesive and Dazzling Diamonds!
