Final Day of Convention

Today was the last day of Inspire, Create, Share 2014. What a great convention it was!!! I would say it was one of the best I have attended. It was great having 6 of our team members attend this year — the more the merrier, right.
During General Session this morning Tina won a prize during the first Prize Patrol. WOOHOO — it was a stamp set and framelit bundle from the upcoming Holiday catalog — very cool.

After General Session we attended a class and then it was lunch time. Stampin' Up provided us with a box lunch today. Here's our group enjoying lunch together today.

We went back for the final General Session. A couple more Prize Patrols and one more All Attendee Giveaway before Shelli said farewell to everyone.
Tina, Katie and I will go out for a fabulous steak dinner before packing and getting ready to head back home.
I forgot to tell everyone — Stampin' Up! announced the next Incentive Trip. Are you ready for this —— a Mediterranean Cruise — France, Spain and Italy.
So it will be a busy stamping year as I work to earn this one.

Convention Day #2

Convention doors opened at 8:00 this morning and the General Session started at 8:30. It was another busy day — my head is full of fun ideas. We had plenty of make and take time today, some class time a nice lunch at Cheesecake Factory. After our last class of the day we headed back to the hotel to rest for a couple of minutes and then we quick changed clothes to be ready for the Awards Night but first a fabulous dinner at the Melting Pot.
The Awards Night was. There were astounding numbers announced tonight. These women and one man are a great inspiration to me.
I do want to thank you all of you for helping me earn a couple of awards this year. I was able to go into a special recognition room and they took our pictures with signs of the awards we had earned.

THANK YOU — here's to another great year.

Convention Begins

Today was the first day of convention. Here are only a few of the people standing in line this morning waiting for the doors to open for General Session. There are about 4,000 demonstrators here in Salt Lake City for 3 fun filled days.

Here are 4 of us sitting in the hall waiting for everything to begin. This is my upline and sister Tina, my downline and daughter Katie, and downline member America, downline member Jenn was taking the picture. We had one more team member coming in from Alaska but she couldn't make it until about noon. She was even a lucky winner this morning.
After the General Session we split up to attend different classes. Tina, Katie and I went on to our first Make & Take session. Then we looked at displays of Holiday catalog goodies. You are going to LOVE the new Holiday Catalog. It is available beginning August 28th. Lots of fun classes to start planning.
