PPI Fall Conference 2008

Just got back from the 2008 PPI conference held at the Holiday Inn in DSM. I am always amazed at the amount of knowledge & talent that is out there!!! Sheessh, OVERWHELMING!! I have tons to learn & am very humbled by it all!

I am very excited, all 4 of my prints were nominated (is that even the correct way of sayin' it?)

2 honorable mentions:

Then these 2 received a 3rd & a 2nd place! I'll take it! I was REALLY stoked when the judges told me that these next 2 prints were actually tied for 1st!! OH well, i'll still take that!! YEAH!!

Just wanted to share my excitement!! Thanks!!!

A few of my sistas!

We just had a little get-together at my step-mom's house last Sunday, & here are a few shots of our time together! I'm the dork in the middle! My beautiful sister Jen is on my left & the other beauty is Rebecca!

These little girls are Jenna ok, sorry Jenna, you're not so little! (Jennifer's daugther) & Angela (Rebecca's daughter!) who IS only 5, so she does qualify as "little!"

Here's a few from Jen's son Jimmy's 16th birthday party...

These 2 goofballs are my son Jake (in front) & my nephew Caleb, doing the egyptian in the background!

Jake looking stunned that he has his adorable cousin Emily on his back!!

Becca & Angela "excercising"! TAG, you're it!

This is my hunny bunny of 19 years, dream weaver! Ok, his real name is Brian.

The Boys looking very GQ!
