Bye-Bye "Sweet Shapes" - Funny Story
July 17, 2008
OK - one of fun things about the Stampin' Up! convention is all of the display boards! There are tons of samples on display. Some samples are from people that Stampin' Up! chose several months prior to convention to make very specific samples to display at convention. These people are called "Convention Display Artists". More about that in a later post.
However - most samples are from the everyday demonstrator that sends in their artwork to Stampin' Up! for monthly demonstrator contests or drop off samples to share at SU events through-out the year. The later is generally what I do. On to the fun part...of those samples that SU receives, they select some to go on the convention & regional seminar display boards. A few years ago I started seeing some of my "drop-off" samples showing up on the boards - woohoo for me!. So now it's kinda fun looking at the display boards and coming across one of your own samples.
So on to the card. This card must have been one of my drop-off cards (I don't always remember what cards I drop off - my memory fails me more often these days...LOL!) Because at last year's convention - I came across it displayed on the boards.
You're asking, "What's so funny about that?" Well - here it is on the display board.
Hmm...can't see the card? Let me come in closer...
Oh - there it is! I kept looking at it, saying to myself..."that sure looks familiar, but I don't remember submitting a tag!" Then it hit me...it was on a card and must have fallen off. They must have felt it display worthy - even if it was only a tag!
Supplies - Sweet Shapes stamp set (retiring), Bashful Blue, Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip, various ribbon, Copper Metal Edge Tag (no longer available).
