Well my second trip was to the Land Down Under. A lovely country with very lovely people. I will write about the highlights only, or else this will go on forever. I have belonged to a stamping group called Boomerang for well over 5 years. I tell you this only to let you know about one of the very best things that happened while I was over there. The group is primarily made up of Aussies but there are a few Americans and Kiwis as well. So here we go....there was a luncheon given in my honor and I got to meet so many of my special friends. There was a lot of laughing, and crying (the tears were mostly mine). It was a dream come true. Some of the gals came from other states to attend. We traded ATC's, ate and had a splendid time. So splendid in fact that those of us that remained too long and were a bit too rowdy (you know who you are) were politely asked to leave (they were closing so it's not that we got thrown out really, LOL!) What memories were made that day!!!!Please enjoy the photos of this amazing event.One of the last photos you will see is a altered coaster. We decided to alter the coasters from the get together and have a swap. The one posted in the photos is mine. It now resides in the home of my dear and lovely friend Chris Bennett. I will post some of the others very soon! What a great idea this was as I have another memento of this fabulous time with my Boomerang friends!
