Convention 2011

 The cards above and below were my swaps for Convention.  They were simple, but I think they were still pretty.   I will definitely step up my game if I decide to go again.   :)

 This was my gift for my sweet roommate.   I hope she liked them.   I wrapped up the bracelet in some pretty paper and ribbon, which you'll see below.

I had so many bags and I made a tag for each and every one of them.  My shoulders hurt and I am happy to be home and not have to carry them around anymore.  

Here's me and my roommate, the amazing Jackie Topa.    It was so neat to get to spend time with her and bounce around some ideas.   She has challenged me to put together a tutorial for a stamp camp or class, so that's what I'll be working on for the rest of the month.   You can check out her blog here.

I have tons of pictures from Convention over on my Facebook page, so be sure to go check it out if you want to see tons and tons more.    While browsing the display boards, I found my swap from the regional in Ft. Worth last year!   I was so excited!    

Finally, Jason surprised me and painted our kitchen Not Quite Navy and Baja Breeze while I was away.   Isn't it gorgeous?!    Now I need some Cherry Cobbler curtains, so let me know if you happen to see any!
