SPC show - nearly done!

I am doing this show on my own this year normally it is not my job to do make and takes or take photos so I keep forgetting to take photos of all my wonderful finds. I do have a few so I will share what I have. Tomorrow is the last day of the PSC show and I have a couple of last minute additions to a few orders then we are headed for home.

Here are a few of my finds this show.

Day 2

 Well Sunday was a busy day however we stayed in the hotel all day. The vendors came to us. Unfortunately, it is really hot down here (Salt Lake City) and the hotel air conditioning is not good! I don't think I have ever sweated so much in my life! Gotta keep remembering to drink my water!
We got some sneak peaks of Lawn Fawn Fall/Christmas stamps and dies. Love Lawn Fawn? Not to worry we ordered 95% of the new release!

My friend Lisa getting a Sizzix Twist and Style tool 

Photo Play paper has a fun new line called Slightly Sassy! We ordered it all plus their new  Luke 2 Christmas line.

Graphic 45 has some new lines one of which is called Off to the Races. Lots of horses and ladies with large hats.

Another new Graphic 45 paper line
More projects sneak peaks to follow.

Day 1, part 2

We ended our day by having a card workshop and dinner at Lori Whitlock's house and stopping by the Doodlebug warehouse.
For those who are not familiar with Lori, she is a designer for Sizzix and Echo Park so our workshop focused on those products. I did not take many photos as I was having too much fun!
One of our Sizzix projects using a brand new die set

Lori has chickens and a cute kitty named Titanium. Of course, I got a photo! He was quite the photo ham!

Super cute table setting all done with Sizzix dies. We all had a Big Shot Plus as a table centre piece.

Another of our projects with Sizzix dies.

Fun cupcakes complete with Sizzix die cut wrappers

Some projects from Lori's studio

Lori and I
 Then off to Doodlebug. They went with an Aloha theme complete with flamingos in the parking lot. We all got "laid" and flowers for our hair.

Very impressed with Doodlebug's branding. Color coordinating towels in the bathrooms!

We got yummy pineapple upside cake and tropical beverages

Not my best photo but here I am enjoying. I really was, just really tired as it was about 8:45 pm by this point and the bus left about 7:15 am that morning.

Cute Doodlebug paper "smitten kitten"

One of Doodlebug's new fall lines. Let me know if you like it or not.

My new friend, Lisa, from Imagine That in Nebraska
