Hey everyone!  To say I am exhausted already is an understatement!!  After several airplane delays and a near miss connecting flight, I arrived in San Antonio at my hotel around 1:00 am.  After getting settled and visiting with my roommate I think I finally got to sleep at 4:00 am!  When the alarm sounded at 7:00 I thought, Oh no, this isn’t happening!  LOL  Of course, you know me…couldn’t waste any time!  Had to get to the convention center for an action packed day!

Yesterday was check in day, the day where you get the bag of goodies!!

The bag is made with some fabric that  be in an upcoming catalog — so enjoy this sneak peek!!  You will notice that there are buttons on this bag–these “undo” and the bottom portion of the bag comes of and is reversable!  while it is attached they are GREAT exterior pockets!

After our check in, we proceeded to the make and take area to sit and stamp for 2-1/2 hours!  We arrived and received a BIG bag FULL of stampin supplies.  There were 9 projects to be made!!!  Of course there was no way to finish all of them.  They were awesome projects and guess what girls….I have a new class idea planned for you!  I think you’re going to like it!!  Anyway, when we arrived at the make and take area, we were pleasantly surprised with a special gift from Shelli!

This fabric portfolio coordinates with our bag!  In addition an incredible chocolate concoction (which I am proud to say that I have NOT eaten!)

Not to worry, I am going to share one of the make & take items with you!

In our Leadership bag we received two stamp sets from the Occasions Mini;  Mixed Bunch and Loving Thoughts.  In addition we got the awesome flower die cuts in our make and take packages!

This card is much more attractive in person than I was able to capture in this photo!

After make and takes, I was part of a focus group — sorry can’t talk about the details of it!

For the evening we were treated to a private performance and the Lila Cockral Theater!

We enjoyed a great show with the Chinese Acrobats!
