Ok- so these pictures are teeeeeny- sorry - I thought I uploaded them larger, but here are some pics of us at convention.  This one is Kelly Mullins, (my friend and my one and only fabulous downline!), me, and Gina Brandstetter.  Gina is a sideline consultant friend who I have grown to love!  She is my 'convention roomie!'  =)

 Me & Kelly at our team meeting before convention actually started!  Tina Sutton is our team leader for Scattered hearts and she is just the best!
 This is the sticky boy!  If you don't know about 'sticky boy' listen up!  =) When Jeanette Lynton saw the vision of clear stamps for CTMH 'sticky boy' was the very first prototype.  Needless to say he holds a very special place in our growing business!  When you are at convention you keep your eyes open everywhere for one of these lil guys!  They can be on the floor- on the windows, banisters, plates, elevators, - you name it!  A lady sitting behind me at general session one day found one on the back of MY chair!  arrrg!  lol  maybe one day ill find one.  This is a picture of a special edition "Cowboy" sticky boy for our Dallas style live auction.  FOUR ladies bought a sheet of these one of kind stamps for $1,000.00 each! yep you heard me! =)
 So I broke down and bought some boots- got some use out of them in Dallas!
 The crowd buzzing before the first general session!

Sweet Summertime...............

Two bare feet on the dashboard....................  You're in in love in an old Ford...  Summertime means concerts for me and the hubs.  We almost always find time to fit in 1 or 2.  Kenny finally came back to Nashville.  Well... these are my boots- They made it on my feet till we got to our seats!!  lol
Kenny and Tim on tour TOGETHER!!
Waiting on the show......  (in the hot hot sun!)
