Here is a picture I took right before we left on vacation. A double rainbow! It was a good sign.
First we went to Idaho to pick up my parents. While we were there, we bought a couple of used mini four-wheelers. Then we went to Montana for a family reunion. After that we headed to Utah. Rob spent the time with his siblings and I went to Convention. I got to spend some time with them after I was done and of course, we played Pinochle!
This is me with my upline, Mary Buenger and her upline, Judy D. Her last name is too hard to spell and even harder to pronounce. :0) The next picture is a shot of a fraction of the people that were there.
These were our beautimous make-n-takes! The first one shows the set "Inspired By Nature" one of my favorites. It is double mounted. This also uses the In colors, Tangerine Tango and Kiwi Kiss.

This one shows the Eastern Blooms set. These make-n-takes don't show the full potential of this set. It is beautiful.

This is a card using a new butterfly set! We didn't use the butterfly in this project, though. I also showed some of the new accessories. The flower brads, the flower buttons, and the new flower fusion too in three new colors.

Here are some of my favorite projects using the new decor elements rub-ons. I am going to be making them for my house. FUN!
The awards night always has the best entertainment afterwards. This year it was an A Capella group named Tonic Sol-Fa. They were AWESOME! I loved the base singers deep voice. He is in the sun glasses. The lead singer looks like Jason Bateman, only with blond hair. The guy sitting next to him with the glasses on is hilarious! We bought their CDs and got autographs.

I have tons of other photos of projects that were displayed at convention, but I don't want this post to get too long. Convention is the highlight of my year! There are great classes, ideas and friends. It is very uplifting personally as well. Anyone interested in joining me next year?

Hey, I love how "un-pregnant" you look in your photo with your upline! Makes me feel good that I'm still wearing regular clothes!
