I'M BAAAAACCCCCCKKKKK!!!!!!

Okay, first off let me just say - OMG!!!!!!!!!! If you have never been to Leadership, then you are SOOOOO missing out!! I had THE best time and the classes and demos were just absolutely fabulous! I met some truly amazing people there and had a blast with the gals I roomed with! Palm Springs is just beautiful and the weather was wonderful. We stayed at the Hilton and the rooms were great; just look at this picture of the view from our balcony! It was also just a very short walk to and from the convention center which was a bonus. Lunch was a sit-down affair both days and the food was yummy! So, if you are not diggin' the box lunches at Convention, make it a goal to get to Leadership baby! I can tell you right now, I will NEVER miss one! So, you ask, with all the fun and excitement of leadership, did I have time to stamp? Of course I did! I did make some swaps which I have to say, I really enjoyed. I received some wonderful card samples which I plan on using in the near future for some great project ideas! Also, I got a copy of the new occasions mini and again, all I can say is OMG!!!! The cute stuff never ends!!! So, anyway, here is a picture of me and my upline and good friend Kimberly! She is probably one of the most fantastic people I have ever met and I loved being able to spend some time with her! We laughed so much and just had a great time! Love ya girl!! She is also a mover and a shaker in the SU! world and I am in awe of her talent. She truly does rock!!! Okay, nuff said! (she did not pay me, I swear!!) So, last but not least is a pic of one of my swaps. I will apologize in advance for the quality of the picture since I took it in the hotel room and the lighting was not wonderful in there. But, here it is! Very simple, but went over very well.
I used the Rose Red Prints DP and the Level Three Hostess set Shelly sent to all demos (love that woman, who by the way, looked and sounded wonderful!!) I will post the card deets and then I am off to bed since I am seriously sleep deprived after the long weekend at Leadership - but worth every minute of it!!!
Stampin Supplies:
Paper - Rose Red Prints DP, Whisper White, Basic Black
Stamps - Time Well Spent (hostess level three set)
Accessories - Very vanilla ribbon, black brad, three for you punch, white gel pen, black stazon

Sounds like you had a wonderful time! I have to tell you that I absolutely LOVE Palm Springs. My husband, girls, and I got a chance to go there twice, and I just love that town. The downtown area (which by the way was vastly improved by Sonny Bono while he was the mayor), is just fantastic. I'm glad you had a great time!!
