Life is Great!

Years ago when I first attempted adding Facebook Lives to my business, I was a nervous wreck. My hands were shaking. My voice was quivering. UGH. I was a hot mess. I committed to continuing to do them but never thought I'd come to like doing them. And now??? I love doing Facebook Lives. Why??? For the immediate feedback and interaction I get from my views. The following video replay from my May 12th Facebook Live, shows you just how much fun my viewers and I have together. I'm warning you, though, we all seemed to be a little out of control that evening. Perhaps, I gave them too many choices, but the continuous back and forth got me (and probably) a few others giggling. I'd even say I was giddy, but hey, that's what Facebook Lives are all about - having fun while sharing and being real! I'm so grateful to all my Stampin' Peace viewers. You make my job even more fun than it already is. I look forward to much more sharing and interacting through Facebook Lives in the future.

I "bedazzled" the ball cap on this card with lots of Rhinestone Basic Jewels. My Take Your Pick tool made picking up and placing the rhinestones easy.Hats Off Bundle by Stampin' Up!

The Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon and Matte Black Dots are wonderful embellishments for the following card being that a Basic Black card stock layer was was used instead of the Basic White layer.

I chose to use the card above with Basic Black card stock layer and black embellishments as my swap card for the Maui Incentive Trip. The colors were perfect for this amazing tropical getaway.
