More stories from the weekend...

We also got to meet the owner of Bella Blvd, Stephanie Hunt and her design team member, Gail. Stephanie has started her own line of product with a clean, fun, graphic look. She is doing a big give-away on her blog right now so hop on over, say hello and tell her that I sent you.

Stephanie and Gail did the cutest make and take of a fold up mini album that is adorable. I really enjoyed getting to know them. Stephanie is young, talented and an inspiration in following your dreams. Go, Steph! I love supporting young designers that are breaking into the scrapbooking industry.

And another first for me...

I donated an 8x8 altered canvas for the silent auction. This is the first time that I have offered my art for sale. I was thrilled that it went for $35.00! How exciting is that?!

I got to go to Archivers. It was my first time. I was estatic when I saw that they had the Teresa Collins album covers and page protectors. Kinda of made a scrapbooker's scene - but I think they were used to it! I came home with my suitcase brimming with Teresa! Thanks to Susan - a fellow attendee - who drove us out to Archivers for a fabulous lunch time extravaganza! SO sweet of her!
I loved this photo of a group of scrappers leaving the hotel. All those colorful bags filled with goodies.

Here's a picture of me in the Orlando airport. This is how much money I came home with - I have never spent all my money before! I always have a safety $20 or so in my wallet but this time I was living On The Edge. : )

Please note that I am answering your comment questions in the comments so please check back there for answers. And a special hello to my new commentors - Marge and Amy - thank you for stopping by!
