FUN PICS FROM LEADERSHIP
Okay, so not that I have shown you the inside of the hotel, I guess I should share some of the fun things I actually did do while there, LOL!
Here is a picture of me holding the wonderful bundle that Stampin' Up! gave to each and every one of us - so cool!!! I was so excited because that red glitter paper ROCKS and we also got some fun glitter brads to go along with it!!! There was also some fun Champagne glass glitter int here too - such a wonderfully nice thing for Stampin' Up! to do - they sure do spoil us!!! I also won one of the prize patrol offerings they do - they call a color of the buttons that we received when we first got there, and everyone with that color receives a prize - mine was Melon Mambo and we got a great stamp set with matching accessories - whoooohoooooo!!!!!
This next picture is of me and my new friend Darcy, who hails from Louisiana and is absolutely fun to hang around with! We met during a Focus Group and she is just the sweetest gal - I also got to meet her whole group and they are all so sweet and nice! One of the best things about being a demonstrator is all the new friendships that come out of it - I am so glad to have met Darcy and I am hoping to see her again at Convention and get together for a fun night out! I have a feeling we will be friends for a long time - she is just my kind of people :-)
I love Stampin' Up! events because I get a chance to see and catch up with old friends as well! My room-mate Peggy and I had not seen each other in awhile because first I moved and then she moved so we both missed a couple of events - and went to ones where the other was not there, LOL! Sooo, this was a great time for us to catch up and we so did! We roomed together and had the best time chatting and laughing and yes, stamping! Peggy NEVER finishes her swaps until we are at the event and she didn't' change for Leadership - each night she sat up in bed putting more swaps together for the next day to swap, heehee!!! She is sweet and fun and I am glad I got to see her!
Here is a pic of her and Holly - she is a new team-mate to me, but has been a demo for a couple of years and lives in Colorado Springs. Holly and I hit it off right away, and we had a great time hanging out together! She is also hugely talented - you should have seen what she made during our card challenge - I so wish I would have gotten a picture of it! She took scraps of paper and totally created a flower pot and flowers while I sat and stared at this paper wondering what the heck to do with it, LOL!
