Saturday

9:00 am and the doors are now open for the Rubber Stamp Convention . . .
I was waiting in line and saw Kathy Ethington (cruiser, ATT yahoo grouper and teacher at Stamp Fever).  That's Kathy on the right and my friend Linda Bucci that went with me on the left.  As you can tell from the photo, It was a gorgeous, sunny Southern California day! . . .


Recognize these hands at work? *smiles*
So I guess you know where I spent the day . . .
Tim Holtz
sometimes the lighting isn't too good inside for picture-taking

me and my buddies Nancy (middle) and Pam (right)
me and Barbara Mason - nice meeting you in PERSON Barbara! :)
I won a pair of Barbara's really cool marble earrings on her blog a few months back.


left to right:  Nancy, Pam, me and Barbara - 
we're all ATT yahoo group members!

And no, I didn't spend the ENTIRE day at Stamper's Anonymous hanging out at Tim's table.  I DID manage to get around to some of the other booths . . .

These were some cute acrylic charms I saw at  . . . oh shoot, I can't remember the name of the vendor.
I promise . . . I really did go to more booths, but I was running into so many friends and running my mouth that I didn't take more photos.  LOL!  I had a wonderful day at the Rubber Stamp Convention *smiles*.

Ok, so after the show, Linda and I headed back to her house for some refreshments . . . 
and later a nice bbq'd filet mignon prepared by Linda's husband Bob.  And for the life of me, I don't know how I missed getting a photo of all the food with the exception of the STEAKS!  So you'll just have to take my word for it (like you did with me visiting the other vendors at the show), that the steaks were fab-u-lous!
Rosemary bread
Parmesan salad
the fireplace going

And YES, I spent the night.  I know you saw those dirty martinis in an earlier photo *hee hee*.  So it was another fun evening at the Bucci Bungalow!

How was YOUR weekend?  Did you do anything fun or create anything fantastic?
