I'm back from Convention and couldn't be MORE excited!

HELLO, everyone! I had the most AWESOME time at my very FIRST Stampin' Up! Convention. We were truly spoiled by this company...and I love it! The theme: Celebrate '08 and we really did!

HIGHLIGTS for ME at this year's Convention:
~ Learning SO much from my fellow demonstrators
~ Hanging out with the girls!
~ Seeing the first $1 million in sales demonstrator, Mary Polcin
~ The entertainment was a blast! The Stampin' Up! band, TonicSolFa on awards night had me laughing so hard. Hey, I wonder if Steve (Tami White's hubby) recovered from the jokes!
~ Receiving an extra FREE stamp set from UPS! Thanks, Brown Sugar! OH, Convention Barbie was GREAT. I'd love to have one of those.
~ Realizing that I am with the best company EVER!

Today, I am showing you some of the "fun" photos and in a few days I'll upload some great ideas for YOU to duplicate.

Let me describe the photos below:

1 - That's ME outside the Salt Palace Convention Center
2 - Behind me you can see all the display boards in the Gathering Place. SO many great ideas...
3 - Me and my peeps outside SU!'s Riverton Campus. From left to right - Jeanne, Amy, Joy & Dana
4 - Inside the Riverton building, this is where your order gets started. All by the barcode on the side of the box! That box makes it way around the building and as it passes an item from that order, a light goes on alerting a worker to add that item. Cool, huh?
5 - I met Shelli Gardner, Co-founder and CEO of Stampin' Up! She is amazing (and terribly nice).
6 - Look at those YUMMY cupcakes that were in the middle of our lunch tables on Day #1. Not only did we receive a TON of food in our lunch box, but there were extras everyday. We had cupcakes, popcorn & taffy, and ice cream. Yes, I enjoyed all of it! LOL!
7 - This is our make-and-take supplies.
8 - The table of folders with all our make-and-take stuff!
9 - Here I am on the stage where many presenters and demonstrators inspired me to better my business!
