Convention Wrap

Hi there

After a hectic post-Convention week at work, I've finally had time to sit down and have a look through my photos, the pile of swaps I received and other treasures collected at Convention.  My favourite parts of Convention are the sneak peaks at new colours and products; the Workshop Wow's when we see projects and techniques by some very talented Aussie demonstrators and the SU! staff from the US; the free Prize Patrol stamp sets and spending time with other like minded friends!   

We saw lots of fabulous new products that will be coming with the new Idea Book and Catalogue  in September and I was very fortunate to win a new Christmas stamp set in the Prize Patrol. We also got a peak at the 5 new In Colours that will be added to the existing ones in September. We will be able to share some of the sneak peaks with you in August and given how quickly the year is flying, it will be here in no time. 

Here is a photo from the Convention Dinner with my roomies Christine (front) and Sue (behind Christine) and two of Sue's lovely downlines Teena and Toby that I met for the first time at Convention. Check out the fab Melon Mambo tablecloth!


Moving on, I do have a card to share as well.  I spent a lovely afternoon celebrating the 21st birthday of the daughter of a friend that I have known since first moving to Melbourne in 1990.  This is the card I made for Chloe. Can't believe all those years have passed.
