Hi – I’m back with a quick Stampin’ Up! convention update.  Wednesday was check-in day.  We got our convention bags but I don’t have a picture of it – I’ll have to do that today.  We took a tour at the Stampin’ Up! Corporate Offices and warehouse.

We shopped at Memento Mall – I even got to go in early for the VIP treatment for getting a recruit in early July – Thanks Sherri!  They always have cute stuff that we just “have to have”.  New shopping bags, a laptop bag, pens, rulers, shirts, charms, and more. Here is Becky with some of her new shopping bags.  Becky is our new roommate this year and she is from Ohio.  I’m also rooming with Michele and Diane again this year and they are from Iowa.

Wednesday night we had a Groovy Flower Power Party with lots of games, face painting, demonstrations, prizes and more.  Diane won one of the prizes.  Michele and I tried out for the game show – the Stampin’ Up! version of Minute to Win It.  I got my stack of cups done under a minute – the pictures are on Michele’s camera which I’ll get later.

We got a photo op with Shelli Garner and her husband Sterling in all our groovy attire.

I saw a lot of friends and met new ones too.  We had a blast!  Sign up as a demonstrator this year on my team and you can come with me next year.
