Convention Fun

I am still reeling from the whirl wind of the Close to My Heart Convention which ended a week ago.   My mind has been spinning and I have been busy planning ever since.  All I can say is how awesome is it that you can say I have to go to a convention at Disneyland????  I love having to say that :-).  I was able to go last year for the first time and never want to miss again.

Convention is all about learning, meeting and seeing friends, and the most important part ~ getting a first hand look at the new products in the Idea Book.  It is truly an exciting, fun filled events.  The excitment and anticipation of the new products is electric and this year is no exception ~ this Annual Inspiration is AWESOME as is the new Holiday Expression.  I am so excited to share some of the new products with you but I will have to wait until September 1st before I can post it here.  However, if you want to get some sneak peeks you will want to follow my Facebook page ~ catscrapbooking.

As for the fun meeting up with friends both old and new was equally as fun.  Here are a few photos I wanted to share from convention.  IMGP3478aIt was so fun to be able to get my photo taken with Carl and Russel.  This year the convention was centered around the movie UP.
