Sunday Snapshop-Minneapolis

Last Wed I flew to MN.  After ten years of having kids this was my first time away for this length of time.  I have sold Creative Memories for the past four years and it was their 25th Anniversary Convention so I decided to go.  I started selling Creative Memories as I have a huge passion for photos. I also have a strong desire to put them in albums that will last for generations with the stories that make the photos special to me. My passion is digital scrapbooks that are printed out.

For me it was a time of many feelings.  On one hand I so missed my family on the other I remembered the old Teri.  You know the one who knew that people really do wear their hair in other ways besides ponytails and heels do exist. 

It was a weekend of continual inspiration and really a big party.  I am not much of a party gal but I love inspiration. 

They talked a lot about following your dreams.  Mine have changed over the years.  Next week my "babies" will all go to school. Then what???  I am an accountant by degree and will do some of that but my heart is in love with photography. 

The constant is...
photos still bring joy
and people are worth remembering.

My favorite quote of my time at convention.

Linking up with Sunday Snapshot

I did not take the top photo but my camera was set at
f 2.6 ISO 200 and 1/63.  Used my 35 mm lens and my Canon d60.
Edited with curves in CS5.

I am so glad you could get away! How wonderful! My best friend sold Creative Memories a long time ago. I always thought their products were the best!

How wonderful for you to have a little time away! I sold CM for many years and then when we moved never really got the business going again! I am so behind now and am so wrestling with digital vs traditional and everything in between! May have to pick your brain some day! Blessings as you start this new season with kids at school!

Follow your dreams and your heart..... I know there are many good things ahead for you!

Love all of the photos, but my favorite is the one of you surrounded by your babies.

Have a fabulous week~
