The theme for the Stampin’ Up! convention this year was GROW.

The theme was everywhere – on the main stage, throughout the convention center, in our classes, in the gathering place, memento mall, and the product showcase.   I love the theme this year.  I want my business to grow, my team to grow and my circle of friends to grow!  Let’s grow, grow, grow.

I wanted to share some more pictures of convention with you – hopefully I’m not repeating myself…..

One of the best parts about convention is meeting new friends, seeing friends in person that you have only “talked to” by using the computer or the phone, and seeing old friends that live so far away.

Here I am with Connie & Mary from Create with Connie & Mary classes

Our gang at lunch on the last day - Linda, Cindy, Brenda, Tammy and Carol joined us

Another favorite thing to do is visit the Stampin’ Up! Corporate Office in Riverton, Utah – we get to tour the Legacy Room which is full of more displays, see the warehouse where the orders are picked, go through the idea room, Demonstrator Support and visit the Rock.

During convention we get a mixture on Main Stage presentations and then smaller group classes.  This year we had to divide and conquer in the the smaller classes – there were more offered than what we could fit into our schedules.  Here are some of the fun presentations from main stage –

We had a visit from Santa while Shannon West was presenting.


The Stampin' Up! band performed for us on Saturday!


Willy Wonka and his kids sang for us too!


And there was lots more fun on main stage!  I think I have way too many pictures to share.  Here is one more from Product Park (I’ll have more another day) –

Oh – one more last picture for today –

Do you know what that is?  It is the new Holiday Mini catalog that starts in September.  And do you know why I am so excited about it?

Well not only are there some really great new products inside but do you see that little picture in the corner – that is ME!  Yes I am in the mini catalog!  This is the US version.  I think I heard that the Canadian version has someone else in theirs – I didn’t get to see it though so I don’t know who it is.   I even got mine autographed by Shelli – ok well not really – I have a fake autograph from one of her daughters – I didn’t get in line fast enough to actually see Shelli this year.  Shelli is the owner of Stampin’ Up! and a very popular lady.  I have had the pleasure of meeting her several other times though and she is a really nice person.

Ok enough from me today.  Thanks for stopping by!
