Convention 2019

Thursday, the day has arrived. We are heading into town and checking in to our hotel. Yes we live locally. Yes we could drive in/out each day. That would require fighting peak hour traffic into/out of Brisbane. That would require paying for parking (if we could find any). That would require crashing someone else's hotel room to change into our gala dinner finery. That would require driving home at midnight. No thanks, we'll stay in a hotel. :)
Clothes, toiletries, brekkie and nibblies, creative supplies, and team goodies. Check!
Custom badge bling for my team and a baggie of snacks.
Coffee/tea, sugar, chocolates, crackers, and more.
After getting our hotel room sorted out and bags unpacked, we walked to the convention center and found the registration area. We picked up our packets and then I went to the cbd while my team hit the hotel pool. Some starbucks and photo printing later, I met up with my team and got in the pool too. Sooooooo nice and refreshing!
My badge bling. :)
Have photo wall, will travel.
After Friday's sessions, I hit the town with Dannii and got dinner. We walked back to the convention center and set up our creative showcase displays. That was
My entry for the layout contest. Didn't win, again. It's impossible to know what the judging panel are actually looking for.
After Saturday's sessions, we hotfooted it back to the hotel to get ready for dinner. I plonked my butt down on the couch to get some of our creative projects done before getting ready. Shirley and I all glammed up.
Elona regularly takes pictures of my work to add to her inspiration files. Any time I see her I head her off at the pass and plonk down a pile of new projects on her table. ;)
You may remember Tracey as the 6th member of our wandering around Melbourne crew from last convention. I love catching up with my interstate sisters!

Our annual gala dinner gift stampset. I had a sticky girl under my tulle!

Sunday morning we packed up the hotel room and headed home. I'm loving the new Convention bag! It fits over the handle of my rolling backpack!
Soft black leather, gold hardware, and embossed with our logo. It can be a shoulder bag and it can be a backpack simply by changing the straps. :D
And that's what you missed on Glee. ;)
