Leadership 2012 - end of Day 3 & Card Contest Displays

The closing session of the Stampin' Up! Leadership Conference in San Antonio was such a treat.  We were spoiled with a fantastic stamping presentation by none other than the charismatic and creative Shelli.  
She was just as excited as all of us.  ;)

Shelli used the Apothecary Art stamp set and the Framelits Dies for her projects, and let me tell you, these are must haves!  Check out all her lovely ideas...
I'll try and do a video when I get home on how to make this little pouch, it's really cool!
Shelli is all about the layers!  So it was fun to watch her create this card on stage and hear some of her tips of adhering so many layers together.  It's sticky strip baby!
This card is absolutely to die for!  So much texture and layering.  The inside is a total wow too!
This next card is so so cute, it actually has a tea bag tucked in the front of it!  And FYI, Shelli's favourite tea is Choice: Organic Liquorice Peppermint. ;)
Are you thinking quit your typing and show me the samples??  Here's the rest...
Aren't Shelli's creations amazing?!!?  It's really no surprise that Stampin' Up! has the best crafting products on the market, look at how creative our leader is!

And let's not forget all my demonstrator friends out there!  They're talented and inspiring too.  There were LOTS and LOTS of beautiful cards entered in the Leadership Stamping Contest, here's a few that caught my eye.

After the conference wrapped up and we said goodbye to some of our demonstrator friends, we decided to walk along the river and find somewhere to eat dinner.  I quickly googled local restaurants and one called 'The Republic of Texas' seemed pretty well reviewed.  Well, it was awesome!  And we got a beautiful table right along the river's edge.  What a lovely night!
Well, I should say that it was lovely right up until our walk back to the hotel.  We had a run in with a RAT!  We were walking along the river and there was a passageway that had walls on both sides and was pretty dark.  As soon as we entered the passage, this furry thing with a long tail scurried out of the shadows and right in front of us!  I freaked and wanted to turn around and go the other way.  Well 'the other way' was the opposite direction of our hotel and going to be a really really long walk back.  So they made me walk through!  Well, run through!  I was running like the wind!  Never a dull moment...

Happy Stampin'
