For the next few days I will be posting our make-n-takes from convention. The first night of convention we had a make-n-take pajama-rama party. It was so much fun! Almost everyone showed up in their pajamas (and if you didn't have any they even sold Dream Big pajamas at their Momento Mall). My best bud Kim had pajamas made for her team and was kind enough to include me! So, we had sparkly pajama bottoms and a 2007 flag t-shirt from Old Navy. I will have to get a hold of a picture to post. Kim's team's name is the Red, White and Blue Stampers (hence the reason for the kind of pajamas we wore). Anyway, when we got to the party there were tables set up for us with a water bottle and a box of Whoppers (YUM). Then we just got out our stamps and started making all the projects! We had 4 hours to do it in and it seemed to be plenty of time.

This first project I am showing is a 12 x 12 page. At convention they had these photo booths set up with people taking pictures. Kim and I had ours taken together. They took the picture in a sepia tone which is very pretty. The purpose of the photo booth was so that we could use the picture on the scrapbook page! Clever!! While I probably would never re-create this page it did turn out very cute. It is just very time consuming. I love quick and easy!! But I am glad to have it! By the way, the page is inside the front of our convention bags! We always get a convention bag and this year's bag had a "window" on the front and we could slide our page right in! Clever!! One other thing I want everyone to note are the letters. The word Friends is stamped with our Jumbo Outline Alphabet in Chocolate Chip onto the Kraft cardstock. Then we took a VersaMarker and just colored inside each letter! Clever!! As you can see and will continue to see, I learned a lot of "clever" things at convention! Enjoy!
