Convention Hype

I've always been one to succumb to the hype... I go to Chili's to get the Triple Fajitas because they look oh-so-tasty on TV, but when I get there, they suck. But the hype was there, and I'm such a sucker for it!!! The convention is TOTALLY no different!!! I'm hosting an ATC swap (go figure!) for Session 1 (thread here on SCS - need to be logged on a demo to read it), and I just couldn't take it any more... I HAD to post my first set of swaps. I got the stamp set from a killer trade with princessalicia on SCS. She hooked me up! Totally loving this set, and someday I'll remember the name of it... it was given away at regionals. In any event, I stamped the paisley doodle (as I call it) in Certainly Celery on Whisper White CS. I tore a piece of my Certainly Celery Palette O' Prints paper and adhered that to the left side. I stamped the flowered doodle frame with Basic Black on Whisper White and punched it with a circle punch (don't ask me the size... no idea, thinking 1"), stuck a Deux Prima flower in the middle, and mounted that on a square-punched piece of Ruby Red Palette O' Prints. I didn't like it, so I rounded the corners, and that worked. I took a piece of celery grosgrain and flipped that underneath the square (can it be called a square if the corners are rounded??), and then I punched through 2 black eyelets in the upper left corner... CAN'T WAIT FOR CONVENTION... Sign-up is in just a few hours... CAN'T WAIT!!!!!!! See you there!
