Friday and Saturday in New Orleans were full of presentations and training.  The table and stage decorations were very Mardi Gras.  Each table was gold, green, or purple.  I managed to take home one of these green masks at the end of the event on Saturday not to mention some feathers and beads of course.

I absolutely loved these ladies shirts.  She did them herself with shirts from the dollar store…it looks great with those striped sleeves!


I hung out with Diane for most of the classes throughout the program and lunches too.

Friday night I went out to dinner with my roommate and some of her friends.  I had some excellent seasoned red fish with veggies and another Long Island Tea.  We could hear good live music from the opposite corner of the street.

I divided the event into 3 posts so that I could post lots of photos.  Check out the 3rd post for the finale party.

Happy Stampin’
