Ranger U Round-Up!

RU2006

Well people ... I am home ... after 7 hours on the Plane and a further 4 in the Car ... oh yes ... the road was closed five miles from home ... and I had to sit there for over two hours ... frustrating or what!

Anyways ... I thought I would share my lasting memories of Ranger U with you! Oh My Good Grief ... what a trip. I LOVED every second.RU12006

So here are the highlights in brief ...

*75 techniques in three days ... with the best products ever!

* Seeing behind the scenes at Ranger ... where all the magic happens!

*Eating breakfast ... twice in two days with THE Wendy Vecchi ... sitting next to her for three days and discovering that she is even more lovely than I imagined!

RU22006 * Drinking Kiwi and Melon Sangria at least once a day in Applebees ... sometimes twice!

* Learning from the best teachers ever ... Lord Tim of Holtz and Suze ... Duchess of the Meltpot and Claudine ... the artist Hellmuth!

* Making lots of new friends ... you know the type of friendships that will last forever! Especially the Amazing Anneliese ... I could n't have asked for a better travel companion! And of course Wendy ... Heidi ... Melissa ... Celine ... Lia ... Joan ... Darcie ... Suze ... and so many more ... a truly great group of peopleRU32006

* Bringing home lots of goodies

* The Ranger U apron :0)

And Thank you to all you guys for joining in with the journey ... you have all helped to make this entire trip a truly special one!

I am off to bed and then tomorrow I am gonna start to play with everything I have learned!

Laters!
