Bouquet Bigz Die

Well, made it back safely from Leadership in Orlando on Saturday night.  I moved up my flight from Sunday due to all the snow that we were supposed to get.  Ended up not being much of anything…but I was glad I came home just in case.  I knew I probably wouldn’t have slept at all thinking about it anyway.  I also brought home a bad cold!  It hit me the first day I was there.  Two good nights of sleep and I’m feeling much better.

One of the fun things of Leadership is giving roommate and friend gifts.  Here’s what I made my roommate, Annette, with the new Bouquet Bigz Die!

Bouquet Bigs Die

It is a fun desk notepad that I decorated with a belly band and the big flower on top from the Bouquet Bigz Die in the Occasions Catalog.  Real Red, Night of Navy, Baked Brown Sugar and Very Vanilla cardstocks matched it PERFECTLY!

I also made a matching bag tag for her Leadership bag so it didn’t get mixed up with the thousands of other bags!  I just used the smaller petals to make the smaller flower.


Tower of Terror small

I normally don’t do roller coasters or rides, mainly because of a bad experience on The Beast at Kings Island.  However, our Manager’s Reception was held at Disney World and I was roped into riding the Hollywood Tower of Terror!  Yikes!  But…I loved it so much that I rode it TWICE…the second time in front!  Great night!  These Mickey Mouse shaped Key Lime Shortbread Cookies were my favorite dessert, too!

The Beast at King’ Island? Boy, does that bring back memories! How about the Racers when they turned one of them around to race backwards? Those wooden roller coasters sure could jerk you around. Beautiful gift for your roomie. TFS!

Another fabulous gift – that flower is spectacular and I can only imaging how much Annette loved her gift and the fab tag! You amaze me riding that Hollywood Tower of Terror…I watched it a few times before and after that Rock’n’Roll ride next to it – a few years back when I was there for a company event….the roller coaster was bad enough with the twists and turns and craziness.,…but knowingly dropping hard and fast…now that takes guts – I bow to you!
