Polka Dotted Fall

I love our Idea Book and Catalog because it is exactly as it's titled: an "Idea Book" & Catalog.  When I am having troubles starting a project or need a little inspiration,  I open that book and go through it project by project.  This card was inspired by the card on page 125 of the 2013-2014 Idea Book and Catalog... you can see that the layout is about the same but plug in different colors and stamp sets and you have something completely different!  I love it!

I am just SO excited to have the opportunity to come to Salt Lake City for the Stampin' Up! Convention this year... and this isn't just ANY year.. this is Stampin' Up!'s 25th anniversary and my 5th anniversary with this amazing company!  I have met some of the most amazing women in my time as a demonstrator.
