do you hear the buzzzzzzzzzzz .....

Well it is Wednesday yet again and I am so excitement I don't think I'll be able to sleep tonight!!

Our 2nd Australian Stampin' Up! convention is this week! It starts Friday in Brisbane, Australia. If you live in Australia or know any Australian demonstrators then you have heard the buzzzzzzz of excitement all over the country!

Last year's convention (and the first in Australia) was held in beautiful Sydney (no guessing where I live huh?) and it was such an awesome experience and to have Shelli & Stirling Gardner with us and they both really do have the patience of saints! Shelli waited until every demo wanted to say hello to her did and smiled thru millions of photo's cos we all wanted one! Last year there was around 180 demonstrators who attended and at the time I think there was around 600 demonstrators throughout Australia. This year its gunna be bigger and better as we now have over 2000 demonstrators in Australia and I'm sure there will be just a couple more attending this year's convention.

I am flying up to Brisbane in the morning and catching up with some of the girls in the team that Tracey, Maggie and myself are in. Actually Maggie and I are sharing accommodation and it will be so good to catch up with her again - face to face.

OK enough of that .... I thought for today's post I would share some of the swaps I have made for this year's convention.

I think this last one is my favourite but I do have a think about purple! Have you noticed?? It helped I got my free sets from Sale-a-Bration redemption which I chose Wild Rose and Life Definitions. I've also used the Linen Background stamp to give it that 'tapestry' look and I am so happy that we also now have the photo corner punch!

I hope you like my swaps and if you would like to swap one of these just leave a comment with your email address and I'll contact you next week to arrange the trade.

I will also fill you in next Wednesday with all the fun and exciting things that happened at convention ... I might even remember to take a picture or three.

Have a great weekend and don't forget to take a little time for yourself & do some creating!
