Swap cards from Palooza

So what exactly is Stampin'Palooza? It is a stamping event put on by Caroline LeBel (#5 demonstrator of the year in Canada) for her customers and other demonstrators to come and enjoy a day full of fun! For demos only, we got to enjoy a Friday night with Linda Hanson. Saturday was packed full of swaps, WOW demonstrations (I was one of the presenters), creative ideas shared by Linda Hanson, lots of display boards AND 5 make & takes! We were all given a bag when registering which included a stamp set, all the materials for our M&T, and tickets for door prize draws...of which there were PLENTY! My friend Trina won the Bigz XL table setting die from the mini-she was so excited! Oh, and of course we were fed! It was really fun and she's doing it all again in February.

Here are just 5 of the amazing swaps I received:

Cupcake card by Kris Steer.
Halloween card by Lisa Cuypers.
Tree card by Cynthia McKellar.
Reindeer card by Kari Hurst.
My fave by far-unfortunately I can't read the name stamped on the back. What you can't see is the glimmer mist covering the whole's absolutely GORGE!

Thank You Michelle for explaining what the Stampin'Palooza was in Canada. Sounds truly awesome -- much like I thought, a mini convention!! And what an honor to have Linda Hanson as a guest presenter. I'm already getting excited for convention next year.

i really like the Reindeer card by Kari Hurst. I saw that someplace else, but cant remember where. I like how she took just a crop of the main image from the stamp.
