My camera battery died on Thursday so I didn’t have a lot of pictures – I have to get some from my roommates.  But I did have a couple to share with you.  I took one of the convention bag – this is the bag that all the demonstrators got for attending the Stampin’ Up! Convention .

Thursday night was the awards night and the entertainment.  The entertainment arrived in their bus which drove right through the convention center into the main stage area. 

The entertainment was Charley Jenkins.  They are a local country band from Utah.  They were entertaining us with their music and the fun thing about the entertainment each year is that they must get a challenge from Shelli to do two things – they have to stamp or create something and they have to write/sing a song that is related to Stampin’ Up!.  The results are always fun to hear and see.  The little song was actually good and he used all the Stampin’ Up! terms correctly – maybe they give them a catalog or list of words – I’m not really sure but we always laugh.

For the craft item Charley scrapped a guitar – literally took Stampin’ Up! supplies and decorated a real acoustic guitar and then gave it away to one lucky demonstrator.  How fun was that?

One of his band members is competing on America’s Got Talent – it was a young girl that plays the fiddle and she is supposed to be on the show so I guess we’ll have to look out for her.

That’s all for right now – we had a jam packed day today (Friday) and I’ll tell you more about that later.
