Extra Time--NOT

A friend of mine her son was getting married and she was to host the rehearsal supper. She wanted it to be simple. Since the bride had and black and white in the wedding and fleur de lis she wanted to add a little in the dinner. So this is what we came up with. It added just the right amount of color and it was simple. We added these black 4 1/2 circles, with a 4 inch Dollie with the image on the tables. It was just enough.
Just another way to let others know about stamping and how versatile stamps can be.

So Much to Share So Little Space

This is some more information from convention. Since this was my first year Marie insisted that we participate in the unofficial card swap. So I did. I made about 30 of my business card holders and swapped for cards. This is a result of what I got... More than I ever imaged. Next year, I need to make 100 items... I am preparing now for this huge adventure. The ladies I swapped with are VERY talented. I have many ideas and just 24 hours in a day.

Convention Pictures

Look what was waiting for us at the Gaylord Hotel. It was just for us and it was beautiful. All work and no play made for a long day. So we went across the street to relax at the Cadillac Ranch. The food was great and the service was wonderful. We laughed and learned alot about each other. After dinner it was off to more work LOL!! We were up late every night and up early every morning. Close To My Heart really worked hard at making sure everything was fun and exciting.

I arrived at the Gaylord in Washington DC it was like a mall with a hotel in it. It had everything you needed and wanted. The service was wonderful. We unloaded our bags and headed for fun. Checking in at the convention was a breeze. Goodies were waiting for us. I will have more detail this week. We started with a team meeting (Scattered Hearts) it was fun and we learned about other team members. The convention was beyond my expectations. And meeting Jeanette was icing on the cake. This is just a few photos I will be posting more later....
