What a day! Convention 2014 kicked off to a great start! I am so excited to be here amongst almost 4000 fellow Demonstrators for Stampin up!'s Annual Convention.
One of the absolute best things about coming to Convention is getting to see friends from all over North America that I don't get to see very often.
Here's my good friend and Stampin sister, Lisa. If it weren't for Stampin up! I would never had met this wonderful lady on the Incentive trip Hawaii back in 2009. I am truly blessed to have her as a friend and I look forward to seeing her every chance I get.
Here's the lady who makes it all happen… Shelli Gardner, the Co-founder and CEO of Stampin up!
I was inspired by her message about the wonders of sharing Stampin up! and it brought me back to the real reason I joined this wonderful company almost 12 years ago. To share what I love with others and to make a difference by teaching others how to express themselves through a handmade card, scrapbook page or gift. I am truly blessed to get to do something I honestly love.
Convention has so many surprises and today we had an awesome treat! A visit with none other than Becky Higgins hereself!! She sat on stage with Shelli and explained the partnership she has with Stampin up! and the awesome new Project Life product line.
Another exciting thing about Convention? Prize patrol!!!
Here's one of my newest team members, Dawn, getting her first free stamp at Convention. So excited she could join us this year!!
Another very exciting thing happened at Convention today! They unveiled the Holiday Catalogue!! While I can't show the inside just yet, I can show you the cover and I can tell you that what's inside it AWESOME!!! I am excited to be able to purchase several items from this catalogue right here at Convention and bring them home with me!! I will be able to share my hand stamped projects with you!
Now for some stamping inspiration… here's one of my card swaps I did for Convention…I'm in love with this camera stamp called snapshot. So much fun to color with the Blendabilities!!
Well, that's all for now… Better head to bed, it's another early day tomorrow!
