Convention 2011 - Friends and Fun!

Have I ever mentioned that my most favorite-ist part of Convention is hooking up with my friends??? Seriously, I have made some of the most wonderful friendships over the years ... people whom I would never have made before, but who now, nonetheless, have become such an important part of my life.

Here is my "roomie", Jan ... this is the third year in a row that she has come to stay with me during Convention. She informed me the other night that not only was she my BFF (or I hers?), but that she was my BBFF!! How fun!! We spent sooo much time laughing and stamping and eating (chocolate, of course!). She got to be a presenter during the "party" at Convention last night. Funfunfun!

And how can I NOT include another BFF, Cheryl?? We met through my upline, Shellee, back when we were both just club members. She signed up as a demo about a year before I did. I sooo value her friendship. From stamping (and eating, of course!) to lovely lunchtime walks through the canyon, our friendship has become such an important part of my life. Love you, girlfriend!!

AND it is sooo much fun to hook up with people who, up 'til now, have only been my online besties. Like Mindy Backes ... could this woman BE any CUTER??? And I LOVE it when there is another adult that I can look directly in the eye when we are talking!! Does NOT happen that often!! More fun ...

Got LOTS more photos to take, stamping to do, and fun to have (not to mention chocolate to eat!). I now do the "Twitter" thing (see my sidebar) ... I guess I "Tweet"??? I'm a-learnin' ... Here is a card I made with a kinda funky fold (12" x 4.25", folded down from the top and up from the bottom ... used a little Velcro dot to close it up). I was inspired to make this by a card my mom gave me for my birthday last year. LOVE me a fun fold!!

I'll be back with more Convention Fun-ness!! Stay tuned ... Smiley from
