Hi all! Well, I am back from Convention and OMG - what a wild and crazy time I had!! So much fun to see everyone, learn new techniques, SEE THE NEW CATTY, and RECEIVE FREE STAMPS - WHOOHOO!!!! Oh, how I wish it wasn't over already because now I have to wait until January for Leadership - LOL! It was such a fabulous experience!!! I was sooooo excited to see all my friends again AND see some that I only know through blogging but now have been able to meet in person! It will be a memory that I cherish forever!!! I don't have anything creative to share today, but I do have some fabulous pics that I would love to show you all!! And, I am going to be posting some projects and sneak peeks tomorrow, so make sure you are here! I am also announcing the blog candy winner tomorrow so stay tuned!!! So, for now, these pics will have to hold you over (sorry Peggy, I know you were expecting something fabulous, lol!) The first two pictures are of me standing under and by the signs in the Stampin' Up! building where everything happens!! What a fabulous place to go to work everyday - you wouldn't even have to pay me - LOL! The second photo is me and Kimberly, my fabulous upline and more importantly, my friend! Seeing her again just warmed my heart. She is a wonderful person - and one of the best demonstrators out there.....ummmm.....can you say NUMBER 7 IN THE COMPANY????!!!!!! WHOOOHOO!!!!! Isn't she just fabulous -here is a picture of her when she found out and they called her up on stage (I bawled like a baby!) I am so very excited for her and damn proud of her - that woman worked her patoot off this year to meet her goals and just look at her now - you go, my friend!!! I just love ya, Kimberly! Now, this next pic shows the fabulous and crazy women in our Stampers By the Sea Group - it was so nice to see how many of them could come, many of whom I got to meet for the very first time! I will cherish knowing each and everyone of these gals, I just think we have the best group around! They are funny, talented, warm, friendly, and just so much fun to be with! I really enjoyed meeting the ones I only knew through email and seeing some of my old friends from Florida again! And, speaking of good friends, LOOK WHO I GOT TO HUG AT CONVENTION!!!! Yep, my very own good friend Corinne AKA Roxy - oh, that just made my whole trip - I love ya girlie!! She is just as cute as can be, and I miss her already!!! And, two of my fabulously funny and wonderful roomies, Peggy and Michele - Peggy makes me laugh, she is just a sweetie, and Michele, well, I feel lucky to know her, what a sweet gal she is! Doesn't Michele look happy? She should - she just won the fabulous Christmas bundle from the prize patrol with some yummy new dp, ribbon, rub-ons, and ink pad!! Whoohoo, way to go girl!!! Oh, and there were a few other women there as well as you can see from this next picture - well, about 7,000 to be exact - LOL! Isn't this an amazing amount of women all in one place - and all wonderful stampers and crafters!! I am just blown away by this! And, there are some fabulous new products coming your way - can you say, Decor Elements Phase Two??!!! Hello, this bird is only the most fave stamp set I have and now I can put it on my wall - did I tell you I LOVE STAMPIN' UP! It was on the wall in the legacy room at the SU! building and since we don't have it yet, I am guessing it is coming to a demonstrator near you very soon! Hah!! It SHALL BE MINE!!!! And, look at these cute cute cupcakes they gave us one day for lunch - aren't they fabulous?? And yes, the disk on top is made of chocolate - YUMMY! I just loved all the little things SU! did to make us all feel so special - I have so much more to share, but I need to get some rest!! I am exhausted, I have to tell ya! But, I should be back tomorrow (Tuesday) with some more fabulous product pictures to share (can you say Big Shot with exclusive dies just from Stampin' Up!, new punches, wonderful new stamp sets, and awesome new accessories??????) as well as a project featuring a new stamp set that we received at Convention - and, you don't want to miss the blog candy announcement either!! So, for now, this is all until tomorrow - Smooches!!!
