Ha! Some fun pics I found around in blog land:

Founders 2012 038
Can't tell who's grin is crazier, me or the witches.  I got this off of my sweet friend Sherri Peters blog. We had fun shopping that day and if this store was close to my house I would have taken lots of stuff home.

See I did it...I raft-ed.  This was taken by Dan the cameraman from SU! I snagged it off of Shelli's blog. Cory is so cute, she is hanging off the raft trying to wash the sand off her feet.

Here's a fun one I found on Becky's blog of us in our jammies. My sweet friend's Sherri Peters & Becky Roberts.

Another one off of Shelli's blog.  All us gals in our jammies...can you find me?

Today was another busy day catching up with work.

Have an awesome Thursday and thanks for stopping in.

Today I worked on club stuff, and went and had my teeth cleaned too. I also added Clara back to the coop this evening. It was funny cause this is the first time I have seen Clara hunker down to another chicken and she did that for Stella, and I am hoping it will be peaceful tomorrow.  I could hear them trying to get in position tonight, they just need to find their spot and stay put. Gotta love em...oh and I need to take pics, the babies are getting so big.

Here is another card from my 10/10/25 Christmas card class.  This is a tweak of a card made by Mindy Backes, thanks Mindy!

OK maybe not, cause Monday I spent the day working in my jammies, I slept in and I took a nap. You'd think after having my own hotel room and being on a vacation of sorts I would be all rested up, not really, we were busy most times, and up late, you can't get a bunch of Demonstrators together and not have late night giggle fests.

So I thought I better start sharing the cards from my 10/10/25 Christmas card class I had right before I left for Founder's Circle. 

This was cased from the talented Kimberly Van Diepen. Thanks Kimberly!

The Loot - Founder's Circle 2012

I got home just a bit ago and am going to go to bed, I can't wait to be in my own bed even though my Founder's Circle bed was so comfortable...OMG I have to tell you, remember I said how I fell in the hall and got a booboo on my knee, well last night I got up to pee in the middle of the night, and I was sleepy, so as I was coming back to bed in the dark, I am saying in my head, ok the night stand is here and then the bed is right here, so picture this in your mind, I started to hold out my two arms like you would to climb in bed, but I had totally gone past the bed, so as I was bending like to get on the bed, once my arms went too low I realized, crap I was going to the floor, so sure enough, I went to the floor on my hands and knees and my head hit the couch. Are you laughing yet, cause I was...I just made sure that nothing was broken, my frozen shoulder is acting up a bit again and that did not help, I knew my knee would be sore in the morning, and yep I got another rug burn near the other one...I don't function well sleepy I guess...ok back to the loot...

These were all the pillow gifts, but I had already packed and then we got this one...

001 copy
...gotta love the shape of that box eh? Too small for the paper cutter...ha! We kept teasing we were gonna get that.

002 copy
A beautiful bracelet and shell charm that is engraved with Founder's Circle emblem and the year...just realized the picture is not that good...too excited I think, I love silver.  This is a new tradition, there will be a new charm for each Founder's Circle you earn.  Way cool.

006 copy
These are the other goodies, lunch sack, make n takes, bus gifts...ok as soon as I said that I realized I have already posted these loot pictures (except the bracelet) and I can't change the blog that might mean this old gal should really go to bed.

Let's hope I don't trip on the way...ha!

Have an awesome Monday and thanks for stopping in.

Founder's Circle - Last Day

OK, well I guess tomorrow is really the last day...but this was the last full day.

Well my bags are packed and I am heading home in the morning.  Today was an easier day as Stampin' Up! didn't have anything really planned for us, and that was nice.  They did have it set up if we wanted to go to the Tuahacan theater, but last year I couldn't hear well to understand anything that was said so I opted out. Sad to say goodbye to my friends as I won't see them until Leadership or later.

I found out on the trip that my phone (that I still don't like) takes panorama pictures....check this out.

Gathering place panarama

This is the gathering room. Where we meet to do make n takes, visit, our shares, and it is always loaded with munchies, I was so bad and didn't take tons of pictures in there this year, getting bad in my old age eh?

Here's my room, I had to wait till tonight as it would be the last time the bed was made, the room is too small to do a really good panorama but you get the idea.

Look at this cool picture from yesterday, my fellow rafting buddy Candy Michael (who was brave enough to straddle the raft side things and have her feet in the cold water) has a camera with a longgg lens and I saw this rock that looked like an Indian chief standing as he is looking over us so she took it and sent it to me.

See his head dress thing and it is like his arms are crossed.

My sweet friend Sherri put some pictures up on Facebook so I snagged a couple funny ones.

My hard hat...protecting me from flying pennies.

Becky and I eating our delicious desserts, Sherri is being good and didn't want to eat one so she said she would live through us eating ours so we had to show her how good they were...yum!

Now, I need to get my butt to bed, one last night of having my own room.

Have an awesome Sunday and thanks for stopping in.
