Convention: Hilton Dinner & Card Swap

This year I flew in a day early and attended a pre-convention dinner and card swap at the Hilton Hotel.  Dinner was served by Spencer's and was delicious!  The theme for the swap was non-traditional holidays like Butterfly Day, Moon Day (celebrates the first Lunar Landing) or Dictionary Day.  You can find these holidays at Holiday Insights.  Today is Culinarians Day and is for anyone who cooks.  Here's my swap for Butterfly Day.  I used the new hostess set called Precious Butterflies.

Here's the card for Moon Day.

A matchbox for Dictionary Day.

Here is my new friend and fellow demonstrator, Lisa, who organized the entire event.

Table centerpieces...each one was the same except for different colors.  We were called up by our colors for card swapping.

Lisa showered everyone with special treats.

Each person received a bag full of goodies.  Lisa made each and every one.

Our Make 'n Takes centered around the Strength & Hope stamp set/campaign. 
We made a 6x6 scrapbook page, a card and a box made out of the Petal Cone die.

Stampin' Up! demonstrators are the nicest people.  Convention is a place where you can go, not know a soul, and come home with life-long friends.  I call it the Stampin' Up! bubble!  I like being in the bubble! 
Happy Stamping!  Bye for now, Maria
