Valley Forge Convention July 2010

My quote for today is:

There are far too many people who are willing to carry the piano stool,
when it is the piano that needs to be moved. (Unknown)

These are my photos from the Convention I wait 364 days for:
Valley Forge Scrapbooking Convention 2010!

They listed us last...

Teri Anderson taught the Papercrafts class " Card Swap".
She was a lot of fun. I really liked her sense of humor.
And her card designs were so cute!
(sorry, I forgot to load those) :)

Melissa Frances was a little distraught because she was left alone to run her own booth!
She did not like running the register, but she didn't mind posing for a picture,
especially when her friend showed up! Despite her troubles, she was really nice!

Some of my "finds"...
These are flower borders with glitter. They look a lot cuter in person.

Felt butterflies, fabric scallops, rhinestone, pearl and black stone flourishes, and
my little owl from a make an take is looking over the whole package!

Lots of beautiful ribbons, lots of rhinestone combinations and
two stamp sets from Technique Tuesday.

A little out of focus, but I wanted to show him larger anyway...
My paper pieced owl...

This gorgeous cake was in a bridal room at the hotel attached to the convention center.
I thought it was pretty enough to be inspiration for a card. (that hasn't yet been made)

Here's the sample card!

These are the two Technique Tuesday classes I took at the convention.
Rubber stamp sets came with both classes. These cards are nice!

Thanks for taking a peek. I have 2 or 3 more entries over the next couple days and
then I will be back making some new cards.

Thanks for visiting!
