I am back!!!!!!

Well I am back. Still tired. I do not know how long it will take me to get caught up on sleep. Hopefully not to long.
All I can say about Convention it WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!
Here is a picture of the Mountains we say when we got off the plan on Tuesday.
I am going to try to add a little part of my trip over the next couple days.
As you can see the Mountains are very beautiful. I can not wait until I can go back again.
That first night Tina, Kathy and I went to eat. A almost 5 hour flight was long and the crackers and water were not enough for any of us. So after unpacking then walking around because we were trying to go to the Olive Garden. We got to the door like 5 minutes after they had closed. Bummer. We walked back towards the hotel and found a place to eat. After eating we went back to our rooms and I finished some swaps that I could not on the plane. Went to sleep like 1:00 ish and that was killing me. But I also felt like to could stay up all night I was very excited about the next day .
I will leave it there for now

Convention and where do I start????????????

All I can start by saying is WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am beat!!!!!!!!!!!. I think you really need to rest for a week before you come to a convention.

Well Tina and I stood for almost 3 hours to get mementos . Worth every minute with all the great swaps I was able to do as people came by and also I was in front of Amysings from Splitcoaststampers. I was in awe just because I was meeting cyber people that have chatted with in treads or swapped with in one way or another. Her group let Tina and I go get our bags ( the ones with the BOOK) and saved our spot. I Thanks Amy and her group if they are reading this!!!! ( ((HUGS to you)))

And I am Off TO Convention!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well I have been waiting fo rthis day for Months. I really thought it would never get here. I have been watching the ticker in this site to make sure time did not stop . that would be my worst nightmare if I missed My flight and missed Convention.

I did not get my 1000 swaps finished but I did a lot. I lost count I believe last count was 600. Not bad for my first convention.

I have a list of people to see and people to call so If I do not get to them all make sure you are checking in to see what is going on at Convention.

Stampin Up! Convention 08.

This year is a birthday year convention. Stampin up! is 20 years old this year. Hard for me to believe. Almost 20 years ago I was only worring about my Sr. year in highschool. I started dating my Hubby in the summer of “88″ so we have been together that long. where does time go?

Well I am going to convention and getting VERY excited. I have adopted 4 Demos not going to convention. ( hello ladies) I am going with Tina my wonderfull downline. I think if she had not signed again I would not have gone. But hubby said okay since I had some one to go with. There are also a total of 13 of us going from up upline. We are going to have a GREAT time.
