I love giving gifts!

One of the fun things I love about attending various events with my team is giving them gifts!  This year's Convention gifts were a big hit and were fun to make!

I made this 2-page layout to coordinate with the Convention colors but solely used cardstock to create them.  I random-stamped the Ocean cardstock to create a patterned paper using Ocean ink and used the "leathering" method, taught to me by Pamela O'Connor, to texturize the Sweet Leaf cardstock.  I feel the focal points in various locations on the page really finished off the layout!

And thanks to an idea from my dear friend, Cindy Denning, I enjoyed giving them a new charm to add to their Italian charm bracelet (given at their first corporate event) which is representative of the event.  This year it was a star-shaped charm with resemblance to the U.S. flag!

Last Wednesday, July 7th, my team joined for dinner at the National Pastime Bar & Grill in the Atrium of the Gaylord National Hotel.  We had a great time visiting and kicking off Convention!
