CKC Convention Nancy & I

 Have you ever had so much fun that you wished you could do it over and over again?  Here is my dear sweet friend Nancy who lives in Alabama.  This is us at the CKC Convention in Jacksonville Florida about a month ago.   I had the absolute pleasure of meeting Nancy in person along with her wonderful family.  Our dream came true to finally meet and craft together.  Gosh, I had the greatest time ever.  Let me tell you that Nancy is just as sweet in person as she is on her blog and at SCS and even more.  She's beautiful both inside and out.  It was like we've known each other all our lives-like I have never known life without Nancy in it.  We had so much fun crafting, talking, laughing, and visiting that I hoped it would never end.  It was so hard to bid farewell when it was over.   But, the good news is......we (my husband and I) are going to Alabama in February for a visit.....lol    The guys will hunt and we will "hunt" for scrapbooking stuff in the stores, and craft, and talk, and visit!!!   Yeah-I can't wait.
Here is the card we made at one of the classes we took.  We only did one class and a couple of make and takes.  But we did go to the crops for two nights and that was fun.  I'll be showing you in the next couple of days what we made at the crops.  You will love it.  Everyone at the crops did.  We even won a prize for what we were making.  It was such a blast that I wish we were doing it all over again this weekend.  Thanks for stopping by.  I really appreciate it.  See you soon and Happy Crafting.

I did wish it would never end! I had a blast and I learned so much from you. You are the one who is beautiful inside and out! And you have the patience of Job! Seriously! I knew it would be wonderful watching your mind work, but I was blown away by your creativity, sweet smile, unbelievably giving heart, and talent! You have talent eeking out of every pore! I already knew it really, but watching it and hearing it was amazing. I can't wait to see you again in February! Fun picture - thanks for sharing it my friend! Hugz - zillions of them!!!
