Here's Christina, Suzanne, Chere, Jessica and myself after dinner on Friday night. Our hotels were near each other so we decided we couldn't wait until Saturday morning to meet in person. This group makes me wish Boston was much closer to Indiana. We could have tons of fun hanging out.
Saturday morning we jumped right in to five make-n-takes. There were five more in the afternoon. Here are Suzanne and Jessica getting some tips from Lisa Johnson. Christina is stamping away on the other side. You can get a little sneak peek of the shape of the new Papertey ink pads next to Christina's hand.
Here is a fantastic group of women who were seated at the table next to us. Just look at this amazing bunch. I really needed more time to chat with each one of them. It's Lizzie, Melissa, Anne, Cheryl, Denise and Amy.
Lizzie brought this enormous roll of foam tape with her! I didn't even pack my ATG gun because I thought it would be too bulky. It gave us all a good laugh.
On Saturday evening a few of us went to dinner together and then had a little Graeter's ice cream afterwards. We couldn't resist even though we were supposed to go the dessert reception in two hours. From left to right: Christina, Lizzie, me, Jessica, Taheerah, Lynn, Maureen, Suzanne and Chere. Did you notice we have another face amongst the group? LOL!!! It cracked me up when I got home and looked at my pictures. That's totally something I would do when I was in high school. Believe me, growing up in Hawaii gave me plenty of opportunities to be in tourist's photos:)
You may wonder who was taking this picture of us...none other than Lizzie's fantastic husband, Sean. He had at least five cameras / iphones in his pockets and hands when we started. Once he gave me back my camera I had to snap this shot.
Back at the dessert reception we mingled with everyone and watched some very excited people win prizes.
