She Loves Color 2022 Recap

Sunday, October 16, 2022

I was so excited to be invited back to teach at She Loves Color 2022 in Milwaukee, WI!

Coincidentally, Jamie Pate (fellow scrappy friend and SLC teacher!) and I were on the same flight outta Denver!

Beautiful fall colors landing in Milwaukee.
We took an Uber to the hotel, dropped off our bags, then met up with Stephanie (host and owner of Bella Blvd), Brianna Lepper (she was on my cut file design team for a long time!), and Cynthia from Doodlebug Designs to go out to dinner.
Everything was delicious!!!
That night we had a kickoff to officially begin the event.
An entire room filled with over 200 scrappy friends.
Jamie, me, and Brianna. Let's get this party started!
Stephanie delivered a great opening welcome.
Then we had a guest panel. We were asked questions and gave our best replies. It was a hoot.
After a good night's sleep I woke up, got ready, and then ventured out to explore. I was scheduled to teach all day Saturday so I had Friday to myself!
The conference center is so new it doesn't even show up on google maps. It was an amazing venue.
Selfie time!
Sponsors and the cute store signage.
This drum holds balls for a chance to win prizes. Every $25 spent in the store equals one ball. This entire drum got filled plus a whole other grocery bag! Glad to see people still buying scrappy goodies :)
I want one of everything please.
I popped in on Cynthia and Jamie's classes to say hi and check in with friends.
That night was make'n'take night although in my case it was more "take'n'make" since backing the cut files would take a little bit longer. Everyone got two pre-cut cut files and 3 sheets of Garden Shoppe papers.
Some got straight to work backing the cut files. I can't wait to see the finished pages!
The next day I taught all day long and didn't take a single picture as I was teaching. I'm actually shocked that I didn't. I can't believe I didn't remember! I was in the zone!!! For lunch I went with Rosie, Isa, and Jamie to a local favorite called Kopps.
Can't go wrong with burgers and fries!
For dinner I went with Ramie, Jen, and Madeline to Noodles and got Wisconsin mac'n'cheese in Wisconsin! I had to!
Luckily people took selfies and I grabbed them from the Facebook group :) 
I had such a fun time! Being surrounded by those who just get it is the best! Sunday morning I flew to Orlando to meet up with Chris and the kids to spend fall break at Disney World :)
Looking forward to my next in-person event here in Colorado next month!
