Scrap Girls Digital Scrapbooking Convention!!!

I am just so excited for Thursday to get here - I feel like it has been a long time coming and now that it is almost here, I can just hardly stand it! I am so amazingly blessed to be able to go to the Scrap Girls Digital Scrapbooking Convention here in Utah this week! My wonderful Joey let me purchase my ticket in May (Yea, it's like my anniversary, birthday, and probably Christmas present all wrapped in one!). It is a little expensive and if it weren't in Salt Lake City, there is no way I would be able to attend - so I feel very blessed. With all the amazing Scrapbooking Retreats out there - I was just really looking for a digital scrapboking one - and I finally found it! Thank you Joey for letting me do this!

I just feel like I need a break. I need a break from being a wife and mom - I need a break from the housework and just life. I need to go just be free and only worry about myself and be with lots of girl friends! And get back to doing what I LOVE designing and scrapbooking! I haven't done an actual scrapbook page in months, so I'm really looking forward to getting a few pages done and just learning and growing and relaxing and just getting away. I just know I am going to meet lots of wonderful friends and have FUN! And I know that even though it will be hard to leave after it's over - I just know that I will be coming home with lots of inspiration and feel like myself again and I think I will be a better mom and wife because of it! I'm just so thrilled that I get to do this!

So here's the plan. We are finishing up the Digitals Birthday Bash #4 Event on Wednesday. Make sure you attend the final crop on Wednesday night! Make sure you catch the Blog Train (only 2 more days) and play in the Treasure Hunt and Challenges and BINGO! So much happening - but you won't want to miss a thing! :) Thursday - my grab bag stuff will be put in the store so don't miss out on getting it now for only $3! Also my Blog Train ScatterZ will be put together in a collection called SCATTERZ 3 and will be in the store on Thursday if you missed it!

Thursday morning I take my daughter to preschool and then my hubby is dropping me off at the Trax Station (the train) and a couple of hours later I will be at my hotel (University Guesthouse on the University of Utah campus). I will check in and then at 1:00pm I go over to the Officers Club at Fort Douglas and the Convention begins!!! And we have quite a schedule until Saturday at 6pm - lots of crops, chatting, games, excursions, FOOD, and fun! So I will be coming home late Saturday - but since this is a digital scrapbooking convention - I will have internet access and my laptop the whole time - so I will be around!

Now usually I have my HIGH/LOW and freebie for Friday, but this week I am not promising anything. If I get inspired and find the time during the convention I might peek in on the blog and share with you - but might not too! LOL You've got lots of freebies from me this week - so I figure it will be okay to miss a week :) But check in anyways because I just might surprise you!

Anyway, I just wanted to share with you where I will be this weekend and I want to thank you all for your amazing comments this week! Thank you all for your support! I couldn't do it without each one of you!

Good for you!! You go enjoy yourself til you just can't take it anymore! LOL Maybe you could even bring back a little bit of the icing, like press this button and it will do this for you and no one else knows it? Just have a great time.
