Convention continues

So much to share & so little free time, but it's late so must be time to take photos in the dark. I'll take some tomorrow in the day I promise though the weather forecast is atrocious.

These are the swaps from my Creative Inkers team that I received at convention - lucky me to belong to such a KReative team.

Firstly my best friend (& downline) Donna Blackmore's first ever demo swap - gotta love that bling ( that's her embellishment at the top of this post!) A bookmark & just a wee bit different with the background stamps poking through the punched out flowers.

From Patrice Halliday-Larsen (no. 3 demo in NZ for 2009) - BTW it used to contain a Whitaker's Square but long gone :-)

From Rachael Knight (no. 5 demo in NZ for 2009).

From Jacquelyn Pedersen (my fabulous upline & no. 1 demo in NZ for 2009).

HMM I can see a common theme here between Jacque & Rachael - I need to work with blues more if I want to break into the top 10 ;-)

From Kelly Slattery and this too used to hold a lollipop but all gone.

From Lorraine Gibbs a cool bookmark with surely the steal in the catalogue A Flower For All Seasons at $28.95 for the cutest 4 stamps imaginable.

From Leanne Marsters - what a great card for a boy & I do believe her guy is a builder - so I'm thinking he may have inspired her a wee bit with this fabulous card.

From Denise Ibbett - this card has the coolest fold & will certainly be used again.

Had to share this my blogging friend Sam is a real Twilight fan & disappeared for quite a while from the blogging world when she discovered the books & the DVD. She also shared with us her Edward ATC:

So I had to laugh when I saw this convention attendee :-))

Just a few shots of the banquet table & my entree:

The very talented Michelle Habib & me - this time a kiwi blogging friend - unfortunately I didn't get her convention swap as she was also placed in the Top 10 for 2009 and was one of our WOW presenters & she sure was. Lovely to meet you face to face!!

Last but not last half the team on Donna & mine's deck having a few bubbles pre- the big event.

(L->R: Donna, me, Denise, Lorraine & Kelly), the other half of the team present were doing their hair!


  1. Thanks for that Karen it is great to be able to see all those great photos of cards and demos I really appreciated it the all look salubrieous (fantastic) lol Diane

  2. Oh Gee Karen - you're soooo easy to impress!! Thank you for your compliments! BTW - yes, your swaps are all fabulous!

  3. Convention seems to be a fun happening! Bit worried about all that food AND the Whittakers chocolate AND the lollipop. Ha ha - wait until you weigh in at Weightwatchers next time!
