Question

Seriously.. what do you do when you need 250 Black Candy Dots?

Answer #1: buy 25 Packs of Neutrals Candy dots and use only the black ones

or

Answer #2: Buy 3 packs and color them all black with your Sharpie Marker

 Although I know Stampin' Up! would have been very happy had I ordered the 25 packages, I opted to use my trusty Black Sharpie marker and color 3 packages of them black 🙂

Oh ya.. so WHY did I need 250 Black Candy Dots?

For my upcoming Founder's Circle Swaps! 🙂

I created the background and inside using My Digital Studio, had them printed at the Stampin' Up! print service, then added ribbon and the tags, and of course the Candy Dots!

NA13F_BlogBadge-whiteThanks to my faithful customers and my amazingly talented downline, I was blessed again this year to place in the top 100 of Stampin' Up! (7 years in a row!), thus earning a trip to Utah this coming week to be with my Founder's Circle peers… I am really excited to see my friends!!

 When I was working on these swaps in my stamp room, I was skyping with Wendy and her daughter Macie… it's fun to pass the time that way!
