The Convention Experience of a Lifetime...

Back from the best CTMH convention ever! I truly enjoyed my week in D.C. starting out sight seeing with good friends, Olivia my GPS was a bad, bad girl and got us lost without a road and under a bridge but left us with some of the funniest memories that we will never forget!
Then convention started with a bang and I got to share my love of teaching with others at Extravaganza! I have the best roommates in the whole world who cheered me on and keep me sane when I won the highest honor that CTMH awarded on Friday night, The Grand Prize Winner of  "The 2010 Convention Album Contest". Not only did I get one of every new item in the Autumn Winter Idea Book, valued around $1200! (The basket was so big I almost fainted) but I was recognized as an artist of worth which is just the best compliment you can get from a multi million dollar company specializing in Scrapbooking, Stamping & Celebrating Relationships. I am deeply honored, humbled and grateful to be chosen and I so appreciate all the kind words of encouragement and outpouring of love that I am still speechless! Those of you who know me, know this is no easy task! ha-ha.

This week long experience has left me feeling renewed personally and professionaly and I highly encourage everyone out there to strive for it and believe that you can make it happen! Love to all my friends & family waiting at home with the huge steak dinner & dessert celebration.
I am truly blessed and thankful for each one of you,
Tracey

Ps. photos coming!
