Orlando Regional Workshop Wow & Swap

On Saturday, I had the honor of presenting a Workshop Wow at the Stampin’ Up! Regional Conference event.  I have to tell you I was nervous, and quite happy to be one of the first of many fabulous presenters at the event!  I chose to present my Petal Cone Die 2 Tier Cake… for those who attended, I hoped you enjoyed the presentation! 

LOL…. and my name on the big screen too!

P1010621Can you tell how nervous I was?  All the projects on the table in front of me are made with the petal cone die and my big shot machine… what’s not to love?


And, the petal cone die cake is now on it’s way to the Stampin’ Up! Headquarters… it’s a celebrity in it’s own standing LOL!


I had an opportunity to teach several people how to do the Double Loop Bow on their fingers, and enjoyed demonstrations from several fabulous demonstrators… Kim Moorhouse, Linda Heller, Lilliana, Christiana… old friends, Karen Parramore, Adriana, Andrea, and many more.

Of course, everyone wants to get their picture taken with Shelli Gardner, and yes, I stood in the line to get my photo taken too… the one on stage didn’t come out so well… so I asked for a re-do, LOL!


The lighting was a little off in the Orange County Convention Center… my jacket and the flowers in Shelli’s sweater are actually Poppy Parade, a very bright and cheery color!

I also got to meet my friend from the Royal Blog Tour, Lucia Kaiser (and her hubby Bill)… Although we have chatted online for years, it was the first time we actually had an opportunity to meet face to face!


I also got to meet my friend from Inkspirations4U, Martha Lucia Gomez for the first time… I thought we got a photo together but can’t seem to locate it on my camera, darn!  I look forward to seeing all my new and old friends at convention in July!!

Here are two cards I made for organized SUDSOL and LNS Demo Swaps… You can check out SUDSOL by clicking on the Join Sudsol icon on my sidebar.


My apologies for the short post… just need some rest, and I’ll be back blogging and sharing again tomorrow!
