I am finally getting settled into our new home in California, so it is time to get back to work!
I am writing this from the airport in Salt Lake City getting to return home from the 2013 Stampin' Up! Convention. it was a blast!! I brought sparkly green hats for all 63 people in our group who attended. It was so fun to see our green hats spread throughout the convention center.
My favorite part of Convention? By far - spending time with all of my wonderful friends from all over the country. It was like one huge family reunion!! It always goes by way too quickly!!
Here is one of the cards that I made to swap at Convention this year -
No, I didn't cut out the bees - thankfully, there is a framelit that matches the Backyard Basics Stamp set and it cuts around the bee perfectly! The "honey" was created with our Crystal Effects.
Here is a picture of many of those in our group that came to convention this year.
What a wonderful group of ladies!! It seems that there is never enough time together before it is all over. Stampin' Up! really outdid themselves this year with all of the give aways! Everyone who attended Convention received a prize during the "prize patrol" give aways. In addition to that there were many "all attendee giveaways". They certainly know how to celebrate, and the 25th year anniversary of the company was certainly a great reason to celebrate!
I don't think there was a dry eye in the house when the Heart of Stampin' Up! Award was presented this year. It was awarded to a very special lady, and someone I consider a friend. I truly admire Susy Miller, and have since I first saw her present on stage 12 years ago! I can't think of anyone more deserving of this award!! We love you, Susy!!
