Growing with Fascination

Okay, are you intrigued? I hope so!

In two days I’ll be leaving for Stampin’ Up!’s Convention and this year’s theme is “Grow”. I’m super excited to be going to Salt Lake City to have a blast with my stamping friends and to have a chance to share my creativity.

So, in the essence of “growing”, I’ve decided to make a few extra special projects that I’m going to share with everyone at Convention. So if you’re going, you’ll want to keep reading.

What is one of the greatest trends right now? Fascinators. What are fascinators you ask? These are!

I love these – and we’ve all seen so many interesting ones, especially at the Royal Wedding this year. So I thought I’d make some.

Each day at Convention I’ll wear a different handmade fascinator made with Stampin’ Up! products and each day will be bigger than the last – they will grow in size and intensity.

If you are a going to Convention and are a reader of my blog, take note if you see me at Convention. Jot down which fascinator I’m wearing on each day (or on whatever day you see me) and when we’re back, I’ll be posting pictures of my handmade creations. If you post a comment on the post containing the hat (or hats) you’ve seen me wear at Convention stating which day I wore it, your name will go into a draw for a great blog candy prize! If you are able to link it to a photo, you’ll get two chances! Each post (there will be 4 in total) will have a prize so there will be four winners!

EDIT: I realized after I posted that this contest is not fair. If you are not going to Convention, I want you to participate as well! So, during the 4 days I’ll be posting these fascinators, make one your self and link to my blog. That will get you in the running each day for chance at a prize too!

I do hope you’ll play along and I hope you enjoy my creations – keep your eyes open! I’ll “warn” you when the posts are coming too so you’ll have the best of chances to win some great prizes.

Looking forward to seeing so many of you very soon!
