Scrapbook Convention. FUN FUN FUN!!

Just a quick post. I am late (as usual) and have to go to work. Just had to share some quick thougts on the South African Scrapbooking Convention. It was amazing. I enjoyed every minute. Met new 'old' friends. Like Michelle and Michelle. We have been chatting on the TMW site for years, but have never met face to face. Here is a photo of the three of us. As you can see we got on like old friends, So lovely to finally meet you girls.
We were laughing about my first ever post on TMW. I was busy preparing for the Scrapbook Convention and was making a tea table 'Fit for a queen' (Remember that competition?) My first post was a question - How do you make milk from paper? The girls on TMW thought some weirdo had joined the site, but they did answer the question and I won a ticket to the next years Convention and made some really amazing friends.
This year I had the honour to take a class with my all time South African scrapping idol, Madame C, or Candice Greenway as she is known. What an amazing class. Learned so much and made an incredible page ( yes Mich, mine is finished, I finished it on Sunday night) Can't show you yet, because I don't want to spoil it for the Cape Town girls. By the way, I always liked and admired Candice, but now I know that she could be a friend - her comment that she is in shape, because round is a shape too, just convinced me LOL. I am blaming my shape on the meds (Thats my story and I am sticking to it)
And here we are - all the scrapping Divas that shared our table. met some wonderful people and couldn't have hoped to share the Convention with a more fun group.

Got some really exciting news, but you will have to wait till Wednesday to hear. Think I might burst before then.
Have a great week everybody, see you soon.
