Every year, things just get better!  I was very impressed this year with the After Party that Stampin' Up! threw for all us wonderful demonstrators!  This year the theme was "County Fair."  I would have love it if they would have shared that with us before I packed and left....I had the perfect dress and boots I would have worn.  But none the less, we had a GREAT TIME!!!

Of course you have to get a picture in front of the sign.  Everyone thinks I'm crazy....but how often do you get the stand behind a huge lit up arrow?!!?

 My first adventure once inside turned out to be the BULL!  At first when I heard there would be a mechanical bull I thought, "No way am I going to do that!"  But once I got there and saw how "kind" the operator was being, I jumped right in.  And it was so much fun!    Not sure if you can tell that by my picture or not!

Next it was off to get my face painted.  This line took forever!  But it was well worth the wait.

Below you'll see a picture of the supplies!  She was quite the artist and did a great job.  Holly asked her what her favorite thing to do was and she said a dragon.  So Holly got a dragon.  I got a butterfly.  You'll also see our other two room mates below- Stacey and Valerie.  What a great experience that I haven't done since I was a kid!

 And of course it wouldn't be a party without music!  This year I was pleasantly surprised with the band.  Of course you can tell it was mostly country.  One great thing was that they had country line dancers to show us the way and get the party started.  Of course, they were very nice on the eyes as well :)

We were there until the end!  I got a great picture of the whole venue.  Isn't it beautiful?!?  The table decorations were just wonderfully themed as well.

And of course it wouldn't be complete without a picture with cowboy hats!
