Excited for CHA!

CHA is just TWO short weeks, and I'm CRAZY excited!!! I get to meet some stamping friends in person, and that's the very best part of CHA.  Speaking of stamping friends, here is a name badge that I made for my friend, Lydia, better known as UnderstandBlue on SCS, to wear at the SCS booth at CHA.
How can you NOT use blue jeans for the UnderstandBlue girl?!  Sorry about the photo, but the pink felt mini rolled rose is sprayed with blue Glimmer Mist, but it just looks like the center pearl is sprouting.  The entire pocket is covered in Pearl Glimmer Mist, and how I wish the shimmer would show!?!?!  Maybe this photo will show it a little better... (or not)

The flower is stamped with the Pretty Pocket stamp set (the one that comes with the TOO CUTE jeans pocket die I used) that I sewed over.  Since this is going to be a name tag, the jean is over card board, so I had to pre-punch the holes for the thread.  Next time I want to do something I haven't done in a decade, I need to pick something a little easier to try it out on. :)  The name part is on the First Place strips, of course.
And you KNOW I had to make one for me too!
You can see the SCS tab better on this one, too... that's the little tab from the Pretty Pocket set, and so is the vine that I stitched on here - I love that set!!!!  I had to use my favorite champagne pearl swirl, of course, and a rich chocolate mini rolled rose for me.
And here are the two of them together... I will be entering this in this month's MFT Guest Designer contest, and Lydia's name tag will be on her way just as soon as I find my adhesive-backed pins.
I love handmade things - you can TOTALLY personalize it for the person... sure hope Lydia likes it, because you KNOW I'm making her wear it for at least one photo ;)
