Creative Memories Showcase

Early Thursday morning I flew out to Minneapolis for Creative Memories annual convention - Showcase.  The best part was getting to spend time with this lady!

My good friend Deb Afton from Michigan.  She and I met 19 years ago when we start CM and were on a committee together and have been kindred spirits ever since!

I also got to spend time and connect with team members who don't live in Portland which is always a treat.  I am blessed to have so many amazing women in my life.

And then I got to rub shoulders with some famous people too.  Nancy O'Dell from Access Hollywood is a big time scrapbooker and has joined forces with CM and has designed her own line of scrapbooking materials which we are going to sell.  She is gorgeous!

And I also met this little guy - just my size!
Yes, he is just a cardboard cut out but I couldn't pass up the chance to have my picture taken with him.  We enjoyed dinner at Buca di Beppo's on Friday night!  Yum!!
Right next door to the restaurant I spotted this -

Check out the name of the building - Kenosha.  My hometown!!

Deb and I skipped out of a session Saturday morning to go enjoy breakfast at Hell's Kitchen in downtown Minneapolis.  I had some yummy homemade vanilla/lemon yogurt with berries and granola.

Hell's Kitchen is a "colorful" place and the waiters wear their pajamas.  I loved the writing on the wall.

It was a great weekend with lots of new information, training and fun new products.  Of course the best part was connecting with my CM friends!  I flew home Sunday afternoon and the girls had fixed dinner for me!
Fun times but good to be home.
