Paper Cowgirls 2010

Welcome to Paper Cowgirls! Well, OK not really. But, I wanted to share my weekend at Paper Cowgirls with you. This is the first year I have gotten to go & I had a good time. Above is the Banner I made in my Digi Girl Class (taught by the wonderful Mendy). I thought it would be a great opening photo.
And the PINK & Aqua was the mannequin that they had all decked out at the opening Meet & Greet Party. That was sooooooooooooome sparkly hat!
Everyone said I had to take a photo of me all dressed up. Well, here it is. I hope to get a few better ones after I see some of the other girls photos. And I did buy one of the Photo CD's from Deb (the photographer for a lot of this event) but, for now this will have to do. DARN IT, I am not holding the little Dale Evans purse from Sandy. It is of course on the table across from me. SORRY SANDY! But, there's the boot, belt & hat. Everyone seemed to really like it all.
One of the two cuffs that sweet Sarah of Gypsy Mermaid received. This one is so pretty & pink but, the other one (sorry my photo was too fuzzy to share) was amazing. I have asked her to send me a shot of the other one & I will share it when I can. There were a number of swaps that were so much fun to look at but, I just couldn't participate in one more thing since I am in the middle of doing the swaps for my next Art Event in California. I know that's not much of a post but, it is late & I am tired. And for some reason so many of my photos were not clear. ????? Lighting???? Sweet Jodi & I did have a wonderful talk about photography (which she is really good at) so, hopefully things will improve. I do have some wonderful photos of the class that my friend (& first night roommate) Lisa taught. She did an amazing job! So be on the watch. Have a great week.

That was the best Mexican food I've had in a while. Wish it wasn't 3 hours away.

Hey roomie,
I love the picture! Guess what, I lost my camera! Now my pics I took of you & Cami plus a ton more are lost:( I may need to borrow yours when I get ready to post. I'm so glad you came, I don't know how I would have gotten thru it all without you. It was really great & Cindy did an outstanding job. I feel like I finally hit a wall so I'm off to bed. Talk soon.
