My special Day with Shelli actually started out with my Glitter Queens ( DL) meeting.
So many of my Glitter Queens wanted to attend this huge event But the time and work schedules got in the way Boo Hoo! But they were all on my mind as I had Jessie & Ash video taped so much of the event for them that couldn't attend.
1st on the agenda was of course all the excitement to actually see ,talk, and even hug Shelli IRL .Oh my gosh what a Thrill.
We then had a mini swap and we all made (2)extra for Shelli & Sara. I will share those with you soon .That was alot of fun
I am so not good at keeping surprises to myself ( It is sooo very hard ) so 1st thing for me was to get all the little surprises out of the way... WHEW ! Thank goodness too cause there would have been no way to keep it under wraps till the end so here are the gifts I gave everyone Yup Shelli and Sara got all the goodies too :)
Inside each Gusseted envelope # 115693 had (4) of Dawns favorite things ( Kinda like Oprah's favorite things Hee! Hee! ) inside held Glitter , Dimensionals , 2-way glue pen and a dauber with a SU! pen
Plus they got a matching folder with the project worksheet and the M&T items they needed to make their 2 projects Plus the (2) color renovation flyers inside.
I also made a small sample template of a new product we are getting in the summer mini for each of them . LOVE IT!!
I had mentioned to all my Glitter Queens in my newsletters to have them bring the paper snip scissors . I told them they would need them since didn't have enough for everyone BUT there was another reason that I didn't share with them Yes I was being a little sneaky But Hey I didnt want to give all the surprises away in the newsletter .
I made all my Glitter Queens a Special Scissor Charm and YUP gave one to Shelli and Sara too :) So much fun playing Santa. ( stay tuned video is coming on what I did to make them extra special Scissor charms )
For the Glitter Queens meeting I had prepared 2 cards for them to make using the Big shot (1) was a 3x3 thank you note and a matching full size card which that video will be coming soon . Shelli and Sara Both made my M&T's OH my gosh so exciting!I had a Brand new set of acrylic cutting plates for the big shot and I told everyone Shelli was going to be the 1st to use them ... Shelli really didn't want to be the 1st cause she said they looked so pretty and couldn't remember the last time hers looked like that , but she did make the 1st pass through the Big shot and she even signed the plate for me afterwards ( see photo) how cool is that :)
**Special guest to my Glitter Queens meeting was Jan Tink . Ya know what? We live in the same state and just 35 or so mins away from each other But only hook up at SU! events Convention /Regionals Why is that I ask ? hummm maybe she is to busy stalking Shelli Hee! Hee! JK
If there is anyone that totally gets the "Shelli factor" like me >> It's Jan <<< Hee! Hee! So it was perfect to have her join me & my fabulous glitter queens on this very special day with Shelli too ..
Jess was so suprised that Shelli looked just like she does in her photos .. and Jess told Shelli that and Shelli giggled.
Plus many at both events were talking about Jessie and Ash's funny video HERE Shelli said she was going to have to check it out . Boy is she in for a shock :)
Yup stay tuned those 2 crazy girls have another one on the way RE: The workshop of a lifetime.
After both events were over as I was finishing up taking orders from the workshop of a lifetime Shelli & Sara of all people stayed and helped us clean up everything ~sooo sweet !
Having this Workshop of a Lifetime with Shelli will be the most treasured moment in my life.
The Last Photo of the evening after cleaning up was a request from my hubby in Iraq. He had sent Jess a text and mentioned he wanted to have a picture of Shelli & I. Oh my gosh we squeezed each other so tightly for the photo to send to him via text message I felt I was going to break Shelli in half cause she is sooo little .
I would post the photo But even photoshop can't clear it up But if you can imagine a tube of toothpaste being squeezed Yup that was Shelli and I. What a Sweetheart !
More to come... Stay tuned for the gifts I was given. LOVE THEM!!
Thanks for peeking in today
Until later.. Happy Stampin!
