Yesterday morning we got up early and headed to the Baltimore Convention Center. We swapped cards with other demos while waiting in line. Dummy me forgot my nametag so I had to stand in the longer line. Went inside and traded swaps until mine were all gone. As I went back to our table, a lady approached me telling me she follows my blog but had never left a comment. She'd thought of emailing me but hadn't. I have to tell you, Betty, you made my day!!! I've always said I blog for myself but it's sure nice to know someone reads what you type. It's like Kelly will tell me....you never know who you might touch with your story if you tell it. Before the day was over I had to have a picture taken with her....so please visit Betty's blog: Stamps - More or Less to see some beautiful cards and a genuinely nice person. Even though her eyes were closed and my hair is a mess...here we are:
The speakers were just awesome, the cards inspirational, and I won a stamp set! Plus 2 of my stampin' sisters, Jana and Jenny both won the main prize for fabulous cards. WOOHOO! Only problem was that right after the convention was over, Jenny had to be taken to the ER. Unfortunately, she experienced some more problems today and I've not heard how she is and I'm waiting to find out. Her husband met the car she was in to get her to the hospital again today.
Here are the 2 winners Jenny and Jana:
Here's a picture of all 8 of us(thanks Glenda):
Front: Heather, Kim, Lynne (our FABULOUS uplines...bowing down!)
Back: Laura, Jana, me, Kimberly, Jenny
Here's my roomie, Kimberly, and I:
Last, I can't say enough kind things about how wonderful Kim, my upline, is....she's
so generous, kind, giving and supportive I just love her.
I promise to show some pictures of my cards and projects soon.
We had some bumps along the way but what a TERRIFIC time it was.
Bad hair and all!
