The seven words I can't hear enough

Two weeks ago a little event called Creating Keepsakes Convention came rolling into town. I have never been to an event like this, and I wanted to make the most of it. Some may say I went a little overboard, but I think that is a matter of perspective. You be the judge.

took a few classes to create cards and minibooks (the Piggy Tales mini book class was definitely a favorite)

I shopped (and only went slightly over my budget)

I spent the evening scrapping with someone who is quickly becoming my favorite scrappy friend-my sister in law Ann Marie. This is her watching people sing to win a new Cricut:

and.....I won a nifty little prize package (including $100) from placing 3rd in the card contest and 1st in the Simple layout contest. Look how happy $100 has made me.

(my t-shirt says 'it's all fun and games until someone loses an eyelet --*snicker* scrapbook humor)

More soon. I have lots to share-pictures, weddings, Easter........

And the seven words I can't hear enough.....

'You are going to be an aunt!'
My brother Dave and his wife Beth are having a baby!!! I am so happy for them, they will be fantastic parents!
