Fastest Post Ever!

Evening All!

What a day...What a day!  As many of you know, I missed my plane this morning followed by a four hour wait in the airport for the next one....followed by sitting next to a 3 year old who, when not screaming at the top of her lungs was either asleep on my shoulder or was watching me doodle half in my chair....yep, relaxing flight....

However, once I was here, Zandra and Ellen Vargo came to pick me up from the airport!  Thank You Zandra so much for carting me around!  I so appreciate you!  We all went to the coolest packed paper store called Scrappers Cove... Such an amazing shop!  Then I was FORCED to go to the bakery across the street for a FANTABULOUS AMAZING chocolate iced brownie!  Now folks...You may know by now...I LOVE LOVE LOVE Sugar and Flour mixed together in any shape and form! I was in heaven!  Next stop was dropping off my bags in the hotel and then on to dinner with Annette Green (Congrats for making the G45 design team!!), Marjie Kemper, Ellen Vargo, Zandra and myself.  It was good to meet everyone and to finally get to EAT!  LOL!

So in short, I'm here safe and sound and after I get this blog post done, I'm going to play in my art journal for a bit and hit the hay early...I've heard from several past attendees to get to be early and be raring to go in the morning!  Shouldn't be hard to get to sleep...I'm exhausted!  LOL!

Well, Hope you have an amazing night!  Ranger U in the morning!  Yahoooooo!

See y'all tomorrow!
