Inky Impression's First Convention!

Good Afternoon Everyone! First of all I want to apologize if I haven't been around and haven't been to your blogs much the last few days! Me and Nicole (Inky's Mama) from Inky Impressions went to our first convention this past Saturday. We have been really working hard to make this convention a success. Guess what?? It was a huge success.


The convention was in Strongsville, Ohio. It is called Adventures in Stamping. It was not a huge convention but a great place to get started. I was in charge of the make and take and basically helping out customers. I really enjoyed my time helping out and making a fun Inky tag with fellow stampers. My good friend Angie helped me prep 150 tags for the make and take. (Thanks Angie) It was a huge success!!!

I also can't forget to thank Darlene. Oh my we got so busy, I needed a bathroom break...LOL and she filled in for me. Thanks so much girl!


All the girls on the design team so kindly sent in their cards for us to display. Oh my goodness the ladies went crazy over them. It is such a blessing to be a part of Inky's talented design team. They really shined on Saturday. Thanks ladies, you guys are AWESOME!

Nicole and I had a blast, and sold a ton of Inky Stamps and products! Woohoo, what a GREAT way to get her foot in the door. You rock girlfriend!!! I wanted to share some pictures with you guys of the convention on Saturday. Hope you enjoy them.













Thanks for stopping by and I will be around to visit your blogs a lot more now that I have more time on my hands. Miss you all and all your wonderful projects/cards.
