Well I have to say "I had a blast!" I got to meet Shelli Gardner the co-founder of Stampin'Up and she is wonderful as expected. The day went by in a flash. There were many topics discussed during the day, all were very interesting and helpful. I was fun to see that the so called experts had trouble with some technical things as well. ie: forgot some suppliies so we had to imagine, an iron didn't work so "by the magic of TV" or similar. LOL it really was a fun day.
The Friday night Pre-regionals get together was the best though.....we played games, did a shoebox swap "Heather style" and there were many prizes. I won the tooth fairy stamp in a small little pennant bag made from the new fabric in the Holiday mini catalogue.
When I got to the hotel in Hamilton I had planned to post my swap for regionals but there was no wireless access unless you went to a certain area in the hotel. This always makes me laugh because I can stay in really cheap chain hotels and have wireless access from our room but the major expensive hotels don't have it they want you to pay MORE money for this. I'm too stubborn to do this. Thus said, I didn't get my swap posted then it is now:

It may look familiar as it is very similar to a previous post...

I used the same supplies though the red is now Poppy Parade and the ribbon is the new 1/8th inch Black taffeta. The sentiment is from Just Believe and as you can see rather than using the hearts I used the tag punches.
 This was very fun to do and when I get a few minutes I will get some pictures posted of the swaps I received at regionals as well. I highly recommend everyone going if you have one scheduled any where close to you.
