I Scream, You Scream!

Day #2 in Salt Lake City!! Today's agenda includes a tour of the Timpanogos Mountains Caves in the morning and the Stampin Addicts Meet & Greet in the afternoon. Lots of swapping will be going on! And Jamie will be going out to see some Motocross this evening. I will try to go with, but it is only for 2 hours and I will still be at the Meet & Greet when he leaves. Oh well, I can't do it ALL can I. I am enjoying myself immensely, and I so needed this getaway :) I haven't even really had time to do any non-convention stamping the last couple weeks. And this girl needs her stampin therapy :)
Yesterday we flew in at about 10:30 am Salt Lake time and on the flight from Minneapolis I had quite a pleasant surprise! Kim Bolzenthal actually had the seat right next to me!! Talk about a small world, lol! We talked the whole way there while my husband sat on the other side of me with a slightly glazed look in his eyes... poor guy. But once we got here and got the car (a Taurus SEL- fancy-smancy!), we tried to check in early, couldn't so we went up to Park City Rafting and went white water rafting, fun!!! We went last time we came here too, but it was so mild we barely got wet that time. This time we went in a rougher river (Weaver River) and the water is REALLY high this year. LOTS of whitewater. I am happy to report that I did not fall backwards into the guide's lap this time....just forward once....but that was all and I even did a good job paddling :) Cole was a great guide! I am 20 pounds lighter this time too, that does not hurt!  I did not bring the camera this time, which is good because although the views were amazing, I am sure I would have ruined the camera, or lost it overboard!
Ok, now on to the card! This is another of the swaps I made. Doesn't it just look good enough to eat?! Especially with the heat wave everywhere lately!

I went a little crazy with the layers again. But they really make a card look fantastic!! I did some embossing and then I inked up a texturz plate with River Rock and Whisper White thru the Big Shot with it. Love that effect! The ice cream is textured also with the other side of the same plate. I had to add a little bling with the Champagne Glass Glitter :)
  • Stamps: Pennant Parade
  • Paper: River Rock, Pool Party, Calypso Coral, Pink Pirouette, Wisteria Wonder, Whisper White, Soft Suede
  • Ink: River Rock, Soft Suede
  • Other: Big Shot with Elegant Lines EF and Perfect Details Texturz Plate, Cupcake Builder punch, Petite Pennants punch, Crystal Effects, Champagne Glass Glitter, Stampin Dimensionals
Until tomorrow!! I will try to have some pictures of my trip for you all soon, too!

FYI, it's the Weber River... Glad you are having fun in our state... I'm a little sad about Stampin' Up! right now, they didn't even interview me or a position I applied for, and they just do not know what they are missing.

White water rafting too?! I'm definitely looking up these posts next year when I drag DH out with me!
