He picked photos and his favorite things and wrote out his top 10 summer memories in his own handwriting. I helped with stamping and cutting. But he does love to use the snail, it is my kids choice to use for all their school projects.

This is another card using new set inspired by nature. We made it at convention.
We used sponge dauber to make some images on the stamp darker. Cool technique to get more mileage out of ink pads you have.
You will also notice the wide oval punch which is new to the fall-winter IB & C. I just used my finger nail to rough up around the edges. Also, we used one of the clips from clip assortment, this one is like a mini paper clip. Also, returning to catalog is 1/4 inch chocolate chip grosgrain ribbon. So, happy about this one.
So, how did I make this one over? Well, really just cased it to be a standard card size, vs. 3 x 6. I also simplified it to do at my customer appreciation party I am having this Thursday.
stamps: inspired by nature
ink: kiwi, choc chip
cs: kiwi, very vanilla
access: label punch, dimesionals, 1/4 gros cc ribbon
I used the kiwi kiss ink vs. versamark. I did not have the wide oval punch so went with the label punch. This card took about 5 minutes to make, super simple.
Quote to live by:
"There are no mistakes in stamping, just opportunities to use more embellishments."
This is a big stamp, and I did not press evenly and my petals did not ink all the way onto cardstock. So, it is covered with the sentiment.

This is waiting in line for memento mall after check in (see my catalog). Having cattie to go through made the line much more fun. Tizz and Judi (both first timers like me).
This is me at the Riverton tour, the legacy room. The picture has the statement of the heart.
This is us in front of Stampin Up Riverton tour. Tizz, me, Barbara, Judi and Jen F.
This is the last day, too much excitement. They did all the commercials submitted for regionals, convention, leadership. I won organic outlines stamp set. Nothing like FREE RUBBER! They did one about convention Barbie and the UPS man comes at end. Next thing we know a UPS man is next to Shelli, a UPS truck drives out, there is smoke and confetti and we all got the Ronald McDonald set for FREE from UPS. It was crazy, screaming, mayhem. At the end we saw Jaron with a UPS shirt. That man does everything!!!
