More from convention...

Here are a few more pics from convention.  The chalkboard stand and clips is a room mate gift from Monica - I still have to take pics of my other gifts to share.  Then it's me and Cindy at a Shoebox swap where we made 24 cards and then picked up 25 already made for us.  Very nice cards!  I literally arrived at the hotel, met my room mates, put my stuff down and then headed out for this.  So tired after this, but totally worth it!

On Wed. night I joined my roomies for another meeting and made some really cool projects like the stand up scrapbook (spread out here) and a digital hybrid page designed by Cindy.  (Look at the difference in just a few changes in the second one!)

Swapping and sharing continued through the entire time - here's us in the room with a few more friends sharing ideas.  Thanks Michele - didn't even know you took this one!

Stampin' Up! Convention 2011

Wow - I was able to attend Stampin' Up!'s Convention in Salt Lake City this year and had a blast!  I was a little nervous to fly out there by myself, but I am so glad I did.  I roomed with 3 great girls that I met online through our demo-only "Stampin' Connection" and it worked out beautifully.  Here's the four of us at the home office right before our tour.
Michele, Monika, Cindy & Me

We had tons of fun.  The convention was filled with lots of inspiration and information.  This year's theme was GROW.  The center stage for all of our main gatherings was beautiful and it kept changing colors.
There's so much I want to share with you that I'm planning an Open House for you to come and see all my gifts, swaps, make n takes, etc.!  So look for that soon.  I'll also try to post more pictures on here as I figure out my son's laptop.  I got home and turned on my desktop to a bunch of pop up windows saying it was hacked and had several viruses.  Why do people do that????  Anyway, the cost to fix it is making me think about getting a new one.  I'm not very computer savvy so if anyone has advice on a reasonable laptop, I'd love the input!
