Thanks So Much to SEI!

Working for SEI at the Chicago Scrapbook Expo was exhausting but of course a LOT of fun! The booth was so busy that there was no time for a real break. I had about 15 minutes for a quick trip to the restroom which left me about 10 minutes for shopping. I didn't get to look around other booths for too long so needless to say, most of my shopping was done at SEI. This Poppy collection was one of the only ones I didn't recognize from CKC in April so I picked out some papers and coordinating embellishments. SEI is also selling the Cats Eyes inks so I stocked up on those as well. Lyn and Valorie were my bosses and were great big sweethearts. They felt so bad about how busy we were and that we didn't get a break so let's just say they were VERY generous! I made them this card using some of my new papers and a new SU! set so I could thank them for the experience and the goodies. If I can swing going to CKC for a longer amount of time next year, I may apply to work for them again. I don't think I could do it all weekend because then I'd have NO time to shop and that would be bad...very bad! I'll definitely apply to work at the expo for at least a day next year.

I have some other cards to share that Kate made and I hope to get those photographed and posted tomorrow so you'll have to check back to see those! Thanks for all of your sweet comments and e-mails about the whole "Top 10" thing--it was very exciting for me seeing Kristina Werner is one of my favorite designers! I appreciate you all supporting me in this little hobby of mine :-) Have a great evening and I'll be back tomorrow!
