Stampin Up regionals 2011 Edmonton + You are loved by SU and me!

A hilarious presentation by .... sorry I forgot her name. .. I will get back with you on that one. She's the sweetest gal with a huge talent of making little mistakes and laughing about it and making us all smile and think of our own silly craft moments. I am sure you have some of your own!

Isn't this a fun photo? A whole bucket with 2 of the same Stampin Up wood mounted stamps from the ou are love stamp set. Love it!

Hi dear Stampers.

I know, it's been way to long. But in a way I am not complaining. It has been gorgeous here in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. I think we're going into our 6th week of sun! So thankful with the beauty that this brings. Soon it will be fall and winter again.. So I really told myself to enjoy it and be outside in the fresh air.

Yesterday I went with my 2 dear friends and downline members to the Stampin Up Regionals in Edmonton 2011. We had to wake up so early to be there on time. It is good that we didn't know how the morning would evolve.. otherwise we would have stayed in bed just a tiny bit longer :)

It was around 5 am when we were having our breakfast to make the 3 1/2 ride in the car from Calgary to Edmonton. We had a hard time finding a parking spot in downtown Edmonton. So all our efforts to be there on time went down the drain. (smile) Around 10 am we finally walked inside this huge Telus Centre where all the many SU demonstrators were crafting their hearts out. There were makes and takes to be made, many finished cards to be admired, workshops to participate in and there was a lot of catching up to do between all these lovely ladies.

I took about 200 photo's with my friends camera and I will for sure post them in the next few days / weeks on my blog. My own camera has been in the Canon repair shop for about 2 weeks now and they told me that it can take another 6 weeks for them to find out what's wrong with my camera. In my humble opinion I think that is terrible customer service.. 8 weeks to get something fixed? For a blogger like me, that is huge.. This blog will be pretty boring without any photo's. So I guess those 200 photo's I took will come in handy :)
