CKC Convention & Challenge Card

What a weekend so far!.. WHEW  it is finally slowing down.  Friday I played hookie from work.. shushhhhh.. *finger to lips*.  My girlfriend and I went down to our town convention center, along with a couple thousand others and CKC was having their convention.  It was so much fun and I bought WAY, way to much.  I had gone to one about 2 to 3 years ago in down town Phoenix at the main convention center.  That was one was huge.  This one was just perfect.  So keep watch for some cute images coming your way. 
Then I sprung for lunch and we went to Toby Keith's Bar & Grill.  Shan had a steak sandwish and some great onion rings and I had the most awesome pulled BBQ Pork nachos.  OMG!!!  I was in heaven. 
Then today, this morning Mom left for Provo, UT.  Mom just turned 69 and this was her first plane ride alone.  She was a little apprehensive, ancy and very excited all in one.  So we dropped her off, she had her printed boarding pass and I gave her the instructions on what to do.  On the way home she called and said she was at the gate and waiting... YEPPEEEE! She made it that far.. I really think that part was going to be the hardest.  OHH Crap.. I forgot to tell you why.. My cousin has had a very rough road growing up.. not making the best decisions and had to go to a boys school out in UT, he lives in Redmonds, CA.  After bucking, biting, and running away a few times.. something clicked and what should be happening next year (because of how much time he lost)  is happening Monday. That's how much he buckled down and set his goal.   HE IS GRADUATING!  Way to go Chase.  Mom being there is a giant surprise.. he does not know she is coming.  Mom, through good times and bad never judged him just wrote letters to him and told him how much she loves him.  She is such a saint.

Ok if your still with me I came home and made my first card over this whole weekend.  The image I won from some blog candy and I am sorry I can not tell you from who.. I probably could go through some old post but I'm not going to.  Just know I do appreciate any challenge I might win or any candy I might be honored to get.  I blinged her out, but glitter on her wings and dress. What a cute fairy... she reminds me of the Wizard of Oz.. Gilda the good witch.  One of my favorite movies.
