I'm back from Convention

This is my skite photo Donna, Shelli & me (I'm looking I might add as if I'm standing to attention). But yes Shelli is just an amazing woman & so inspirational & everything you read or hear about her triple it at least as she's so much better IRL!!

One of the highlights from Convention was the PEOPLE - especially my Aussie blogging friends Sam & Di - it was so exciting to meet them in the flesh we'd talked about it for so long. So this is the 3 of us plus their friend Kelly. (L->R: Kelly, Diane, Sam & me)

and just the 3 of us in our evening finery (L->R: Me, Diane & Sam)

Convention what a blast, so glad I attended (now planning for May 21-22, 2010 in Sydney). I was very fortunate to receive an award at the award ceremony thanks to my fabulous downline I earned the first leadership pin (& a stamp set) and got to walk on stage. The big team did pretty well but I'll let them brag on their own blogs.

The friendships one makes as a demonstrator whether doing this as a hobby or as a business was a reoccurring theme at Convention & it's so TRUE.

To celebrate Worldwide Scrapbooking month SU! are offering for the first time a reduced starter kit (themed towards scrapbooking).

This is only $175 - which will most likely be repaid after 1 or 2 workshops & you're be well on the way to earning stamps or scrap booking items for free or at a discounted price.

So if you'd like to join my team the WOW paperKRafters contact me by E-MAIL if you'd like to know more or receive a recruit brochure - this offer does expire May 31st.

Last but not least the girls swaps (lucky me).

From Samantha Post AKA Ryemilan

Sam's post for her swap can be viewed HERE and a is much better reflection of her lovely sparkling card (can't wait for my super novo gliiter to arrive).
From Diane Barnes AKA Colour Me Happy

Some things don't change I'm still blogging at night & taking pictures of cards with a lamp so sorry I don't do the cards justice, they're both stunning. If you haven't checked out their blogs before I'm sure you'll find them as inspirational as I do.
