Convention 2010

I have just returned home from Stampin Up's Annual Convention. I had such a fantastic time.
There is nothing like it, catching up with friends, meeting new ones and being so inspired by the amazing talent that surrounded us.

I learnt lots of new things and made some great friends.
This Mel one of my beautiful down lines and friends. I had the great privilege of sharing a room with her.
You can find her lovely creations HERE.

Some of the beautiful ladies I had the pleasure of spending the weekend with.

Natasha, Mel, Karen, Kylie and Leah.
It was great to meet Shelly this year. Last year I was to shy, but this year I struck up the courage and had a chat. She is the most beautiful person both inside and out.
It wasn't all about stamping. We also did a lot of eating to!!!!!!!!!!! What else would you want to be doing at midnight, but drinking hot chocolate at the chocolate lounge.........mmmmmm.......Very nice indeed.

I have lot more news to share but that will have to wait, yep I have a date with the kitchen and I am certain it won't he as yummy as the hot chocolate and Chorizzo's were.

Stamp-a-memory Challenge 9

This is my attempt to the new Stamp-a-Memory Challenge.

The challenge this week was to use a "Not so Perfect" Photo and then upload the photo in it's original from. Here is a example of one of the original photos.

I have scrapped photos from our Easter egg hunt this year, which were definitely not so perfect. I had trouble catching them as they zoomed pass at a hundred miles an hour. There was so much excitement running around with their cousins finding chocolate surprises.

I changed the photos to Black & White and lightened them a little, just some very basic photo editing. Here is how my laypout turned out......
