More convention goodness to share with you!

Well hello there! Hope you are having a full and wonderful Saturday! :) Ours has been super busy! We have decided to take on some home improvement projects and have been doing some painting this weekend. Fun stuff! :)

Thought I would stop in and share some more convention photos with you guys!

This is my adorable down line Jo dancing it up in the aisles before the first general session! She was so much fun to hang out with! Isn't she so cute?!

Here are the two of us waiting for the general session to start! It was so crazy in there! There were giant beach balls flying around all over the place and hula hoops going and folks dancing on the aisles! The SU! employees were all there having a ball and there was a ton of swapping going on everywhere you looked!

This was the first presentation on the main stage given by Jill Cockerhan and Bonnie Thurber! They were a hoot! They performed the song Sisters after their presentation and were awesome!

Each day at lunch they treated us to something fun on the display tables! Day 1 was candy! Piles and piles of it! The tables were just full of it! Here is the display sign!

Here is what it looked like!

The entertainment after awards night was Charlie Jenkins! He was really good!! He is part of a country band and they actually drove their tour bus right into the Main Stage area! Too cool! This is a blurry picture of his bus! LOL

Here he is singing!

At one point on the evening he said he had done something special for us! They brought out a guitar that he had embellished himself! LOL Look closely and you will see our new newsprint DSP and his initials in chunky red glitter and lots of sparkly gemstones! It was too funny! He played a song on it and then gave it away to some lucky demo! She had stars in her eyes! :)

Here is Brent Steel doing a demonstration. He was so funny! He had everyone just rolling! Great projects too! I was taking notes feverishly! LOL

Here is a picture of my lunch one day (because I am dorky like that!)! It was really yummy! This was provided by Stampin Up!

Remember those daily lunch treats I mentioned?! Take a look at Friday's lunch treat! *thud! Falls over!* I was in heaven!! I could have put a glass under there and been especially happy for a long time! :) Yummmmm-o!!

This is an overview of the gathering place where we ate our meals and had the Flower Power party! Isn't is pretty!? I just love all those bright table cloths!

Well that takes us through Friday afternoon! I will be back tomorrow with the last of the photos from my trip! Hope you are enjoying them! Wish I could have taken all of you with me! :)

Have a great night! I will be back soonest!
