Convention fun!

I'm at convention this weekend! Having so much fun!
I drove myself to my aunty and uncle's place on thursday and after a bit of a hectic start (my alarm didn't go off until 20mins before I had to be at the train station - but I managed a super quick shower and made it with 2mins to spare!) I met with my upline Lisa and my online friend Pauline & her 2 dowlines on the train. We had a great time catching up and got to convention with time to check in do some swaps and some momento mall shopping:

I got the SU! Logo decor elements which is perfect for the car, it would also be great on a studio door or display board.

I also grabbed the card tree, the top is interchangeable, you can swap out the top with the SU! Logo if you use it as a workshop display or have an extra clip for another card or contact details if you were selling cards.

Anyway, next we headed over to general session, where we had some inspiring demonstrations and learnt about where SU! is as a business and where they want to go.
After Shannon west's demonstration she held the first prize patrol of convention and Lisa won! She got the tiny tags stamp set from the autumn/winter mini.

After a scrummy lunch we had our turn for break out classes where we were given some fantastic business tips by other demonstrators and SU! Home office staff. They split it so half had classes half had make and takes then we will swap in the morning! I have deliberately avoided the m&t ladies so I can get a surprise in the morning. I am really looking forward to making something designed by someone else!
Anyway better get some sleep soon!
I'll be back with some more convention news later!

JMS Blog Hop

At JMS the DT love our mums and to show our appreciation for everything mothers do we are celebrating mothers in our blog hop this week.
The hop officially kicks off at 9 am (NFLD time zone), and ends at Midnight (NFLD time zone).
There are 18 stops along the way, some have blog candy up for grabs (but you'll have to find them for yourselves we don't want to ruin the fun!). In your travels don't forget to collect the words to complete the quote and take it back to Just My Sketches & the Blend to enter the major prize drawing worth $30!
If you have only just found the blog hop, go back to JMS to start.

If you have been hopping along you will have come from Annmaree and your next stop will be Stephanie.

The words you need to collect from me are:
"But I"

Now I am one of the ones who chose to share a little bit of blog candy! But I'm going to make you work for it!! Well, I can't be too nice, you would have thought I was sick!
What do you need to do to be in the draw?I need you to find "Always In Bloom" in the SU! (Australian) Catalogue, if you don't have a copy you can find it online here. Then for a bonus entry, link to my bloghop post on your own blog, don't forget to come back here, and tell me what page number of the Australian catalogue you found it on, and where I can find your blogpost (if you have one).  So after all that, you want to know what you win? How about my undying love and gratitude? Does that work for you? No? Fine! If you win you can have "Always in Bloom", how does that sound? I'll even get it shipped straight to your door! (If you already have it you can choose something else up to the same value).
Now I do have to be mean and say Australian Residents only, since I'm not allowed to ship overseas.

Anyway, don't forget to go to Stephanie's blog to continue on your hoppy way, and come back on Monday to see the layout I did celebrating motherhood!

 Have a great week!
