Stampin’ Up! Excitement!

Hi Everyone,

I can’t believe the Stampin’ Up! Convention is over!!! It was fantabulous! For me it was filled with so many memorable moments I’d love to share with you. I hope you don’t mind.

Do you know what this flower represents? It is the beautiful Wristlet Corsage they gave the top 100 Demonstrators in the Country and Canada….and yes that is my wrist!!!! Whoo Hoo!!! I couldn’t believe I achieved that. I have to thank all of you that have supported me as your Demonstrator this past year. You have helped me achieve and I so appreciate each and every one of you!!!

SAM_1112 susan lee and Christina red carpet Just had to share it with my two of my downline that were there with me…Susan and Christina…we had do much fun. I love-love-love these Girls!

SAM_1115 Then I had to get a picture of me and my sweet friend Carol’ Anne from Canada….she was my roomie too. I’m very blessed to have her in my life! If it had not been for Stampin’ Up! I would not have met her….just one of the many perks of being a Demonstrator and making friends from all over the world.

awards night

Here I am with my friend Sandi MacIver.  We sat together at the Awards Night. Sandi also achieved Top 100 so we will be going to Founders Circle together come September. We get an all expense paid trip to spend several days with the “Top 10” and Shelli Gardner. I am so excited, not only to achieve it but to spend time with special friends like Sandi and Shelli of course.

I am ever so grateful and humbled to have received the Heart of Stampin’ Up Award “Recipients of this award embody the spirit of Stampin' Up!'s Statement of the Heart as they make a difference in people's lives”……… here are a few pictures of how that went. I was, and am totally overwhelmed by this honor.
