My 1st Convention was a BLAST!!!!!!!!!!

Okay, so everyone that has been to convention before told me I would have a great time. Well, boy were they right. Especially when you have this great lady as your roommate. This is Chris Twardowski, my new BFF!!! She is so darn sweet, and so much fun. I told her I would only come to convention from here on out if she would be my roommate.
Here we are waiting in line for Momento Mall on Wednesday morning. It was a lot of hurry up and wait there, but worth it. While we were standing in line everyone was swapping cards and laughing and having a great time. Here we are again in the Gathering Place where you can take your pictures on some pretty big stamps. Can you tell what the theme was this year??? "Share what you Love".
These were the ladies that are in my upline and we sat together each morning for the General Sessions. From the right to left is Pat, Vonda, Chris, Sue and me. A fun group of girls.
On Saturday, the last day, Stampin Up gave everyone a free bundle of new products coming out in the Holiday Mini catalog coming soon. It was valued over $40.00. I will have to take a picture of all the free loot I got over the 5 days I was there. Stampin Up is really a great company and they sure know how to take care of their demonstrators.
Do we look exhausted? Because I mean to tell you, I haven't been this tired in a long time. It is a good tired, but oh my goodness.
I realize this being my first convention that I needed to take more pictures of the fun we had. I was just so in the moment, I didn't think to take pictures of it. But, I do have lots of pictures .... I took over 450 pictures. I will be posting them with all the great ideas we got, and some of the fun we had over the next few days, so keep peeking in for those.
I will be so happy when I finally catch up on my sleep.....
Have a great day everyone.
Thanks for peeking in.
