Convention 2009 - Part 1

2009 was my very first time at Convention and it did not disappoint.  I had such a great time and really needed another few days off from work to recover, LOL!  I travelled with my good friend Marlene and we met up the the girls from Gail Force Stampers.  Marlene and I dubbed ourselves the Gail Force Groupies and had so much fun hanging out with Gail (aka Gale Force 1), Felicity, Karen, Coral, Chris, Gina, Anne-Marie, Steph & Julie.  Before we left we had arranged to do a shoe box swap and I just wanted to say how fantastic the staff at Rydges Lakeside were in accommodating 11 noisy women in their foyer whilst we stamped.  Here's a few photos:

img_0057From R to L is Chris, Gina  (I know you can only see her t-shirt) and Steph.  I don't think I'd ever had so much fun stamping but by the end of the night my eyes felt like they were about to fall out of my head.  I've still got Marlene's swap to finish and I still have to take a photo of mine.

I need to take some more photos of my convention bag and my goodies from Momento Mall so I think I'll leave it there for tonight.

I will say that Convention 2010 is pencilled into the diary already.  I can't wait!

Thanks for posting the lovely photo of me Jo....yeah right. The staff did do a great job with us ladies. It was so much fun, I have already told my crew here I am off again next year. Thankyou for being a great roomie and thanks to Gail Force Stampers for adopting us. Bring on regionals and then the next convention, I can hardly wait.
