Convention 2009 and Artisan Award Entries



I am off to convention this week for STAMPIN' UP.. Yahoo... I thought I would post the projects I submitted for the "ARTISAN AWARD" Stampin' Up awards each year at convention... I could not be more happy and proud of the entries I submitted.. I don't think I would have changed a think.. These projects are truly me... The coolest thing about working on this contest was..... THE LOVE AND SUPPORT I RECEIVED FROM MY FAMILY... Especially my Sweetheart.. They were always giving me such sweet comments and boosting me up... I was trying to keep my cool... I REALLY wanted to win this contest. You never know what the next year will bring and if you will have the opportunity to make all these projects the next time around.... I did feel a little disappointed that I didn't win because of all the time I had invested in the projects.. And all the time my family allowed me to create... When I told them I didn't win they all told me that I was still the best ever and I didn't matter.. Hopefully I can get over the guilt and try again next year...

My girlfriend that works at Stampin' Up said she had posted some of the project on the board so keep an eye open I know I will be looking for them. I will defiantly be taking pictures... I have a few blogger friends that did win and I am soooo excited to see what their project look like.. They have not been able to post any pictures because of the contest... CONGRATS to ANGIE TIEMAN for winning the Artisan Award this year.... check her out here.. She is soooo Amazing...

I am not sure if will be able to share picture with you each night like last year... While I am at Convention My DH will be taking my {MAC} in to have the DVD player fixed... This is good timing because I don't think I could go very long with my computer gone and me at home... Sad but true... Good luck macky boy...

If you are attending the convention please stop me and say hi I would love to meet you...

I finally finished my WOW swap cards tonight due to having to much fun with the kiddos and just plain being a busy mom and getting kids to and from activities and getting ready for school... I have a few swaps left from last year so if you didn't trade with me last year you are in luck....

I am of to bed so I can get an early start. I get to be one of the first to shop at Memento Mall in the A.M. SWEET no 4 hour line for me... Wish me luck.. I am NOT a morning person...

I hope you all enjoy the projects below..
Hugs
Brooke

Brooke,
I can't imagine why you weren't chosen. Your projects are so fabulous. I was so excited to finally meet you in person. You are so incredible sweet.
