Convention Swap Card

One of the things that a lot of demonstrators do at convention is card swaps.  You make a bunch of the same card and you swap for other card ideas with the other demonstrators.

I ran out of time this year to make swaps but my upline and sister, Tina, was in an organized swap.  All the ladies met for lunch (which I was able to attend).  They took a break during eatting to line up in the hall way and swap cards with each other.  She came back with approx. 50 different card ideas.  This is the card that Tina made — I was lucky enough to get one of them.  Isn't it a beautiful card.  She made the background of the card with the Honeycomb Embossing Folder and ink sponged onto the folder.  Such a great idea.

Convention Goodies

I made it home safe & sound — a bit exhausted but not too bad.  It was good to be home to see my husband, son-in-law and grandsons.  My daughter was with me at convention — she has been a demonstrator for almost 9 years.  She and her family and staying with us for a short time — they have just moved back home — they have lived in Anchorage, Alaska for the past 5 years and they decided it was time to be back with family again (yeah for me).  They are in the process of purchasing a home but are staying with us until they close and can move in to it.  My daughter accepted a music teacher position in Delavan, WI so they will be nice and close to us.

Oops, I guess I got a little side tracked — as I said convention was one of the best ever.  Check out all of the goodies I received in just a few short days.  Peggy's Convention Goodies
Let's see if I list them all — tote bag that holds my iPad, 6 stamp sets (3 from the current catalog and 3 from the upcoming Holiday catalog), 2 full snail adhesives, 1 designer series paper, 1 In-Color Bundle (In-Color DSP Stack, 2 In-Color Ribbons and a package of assorted In-Color card bases), 1 "Green" Glue, 1 Simply Created Card Kit from the upcoming Holiday catalog, 1 Project Life by Stampin' Up Accessory Kit from the upcoming Holiday catalog.  WOW — that's a lot of stuff.

You could join me next year at convention and come home with a BUNCH of FREE GOODIES like this.  Just sign up to join my team — it's only $99 for the Starter Kit and you get to choose $125 of any product you want (and shipping is FREE).  The new Holiday Catalog is right around the corner — your kit could include items from this new catalog. 

I would love to talk to you about joining my StampBees Team.

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.
