Stars Shine Bright Postcard Challenge

The Close To My Heart Convention is coming up in July and takes place in Dallas, Texas.  This will be my third convention.  I love attending convention because the excitement is so electric!  Each convention, I look forward to seeing all my sister consultants that I have formed close bonds with.  There is nothing like it.  I'm so excited about it, I've got a little countdown badge over to the right!  Plus I'll be teaching this year! YEE HAW! - Even MORE excited about that!

Corporate sent out postcard reminders to all consultants to remember to sign up for convention.  Then they challenged us to use that postcard to make a layout!  I had pinned mine to my bulletin board and then got busy and forgot all about creating a layout.   Yesterday, another consultant posted her layout (which was awesome by the way) and I started thinking I really should try to do something.


Last night I had one of those moments ..... where an idea just comes to you.   I couldn't wait to get in my scraproom and put the idea on paper.   And I knew JUST the paper I wanted to use!  This piece from the Dotty For You paper collection of Sunset shapes was perfect!  I used a strip of Lagoon dotted paper from one of the other pieces in the pack.  PERFECT!

I used Buttercup and Cocoa cardstock to cut out my stars using the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge of course.  The stars are layered using foam tape. Each year at convention we see so many new products unveiled, it takes your breath away trying to soak it all in.  I put a lasso (made from our Natural Hemp (Z280)) around a couple of stars because this is how I will feel at convention..  I will want to get my hands on all the new products quickly and since our convention is in Dallas I thought  "Lasso around  the Stars" was appropriate!    To finish off the page I added Pewter Badge Buttons (Z1704).  These are adhesive back and make it very easy to apply to your pages.
