Hello Stampers! I'm back home! What a wonderful week I had in Salt Lake City at the Stampin' Up! Convention! Every year I think they can't top the year before, and every year they do!!! The inspiration, ideas, and motivation are so wonderful, but the best part is probably the socialization! Just imagine being with over 3,000 people who share the love of stamping and papercrafting with you!
I also love seeing the friends again that I only get to see once a year. I have made so many new friends over the years! Can you believe that this was my 7th Stampin' Up! Convention!!!
When we arrived at out hotel, we were greeted with this fun sign.
Wednesday was a free day for us, so we spent the day swapping, touring the headquarters, and just relaxing and having fun.
Isn't this a neat card that I swapped? I definately see this in an upcoming Christmas card class!
Here are some of my downline on the bus trip to the Riverton facility. This is where the main offices are. The building is amazing! They have a whole area that is set up to provide ideas and inspiration.
Isn't this a neat display. I took a picture because I want to do this in my family room!
This is our 1 1/4" striped grosgrain ribbon up on the wall! LOVE IT!
They have a whole room where the walls are dry erase. We could write words of encouragement or ideas that we have. This is Alice Marie writing her message!
Every time you visit the campus you have to get your picture taken by the rock! From left to right are my downline Anne, me, my roomie Sue, my downline Alice Marie, and my downline Rickie!
After we got back to the Convention center, they had tons of displays set up containing our products and projects that they had made! Such cute stuff!
More cute displays!
Finally that evening, they had a Welcome Party for us. There were games, prizes, demonstrator presentations, and lots of socializing!
Here I am with my upline Jeri and my three downline that went with me this year! What a great first day it was!
