Convention Goodies

I know I'm a little behind on these pictures....but better late than never! Here are the stamp sets that I received at the Convention. Some came with the FABULOUS bag below and some of them I received for various awards.

Don't you LOVE this bag - it's Chocolate Chip and Kiwi Kiss. If you're really addicted to our products - you'll find yourself using SU colors to describe everything.....I have a Kiwi Kiss shirt and Chocolate Chip capri's!!!!!!

The little folder at the bottom of the photo contains a notebook and some pockets - I got this from my Service Account Manager (SAM) as a gift!

Swap Cards

Just finished this swap last week....I used the NEW Flight of the Butterfly stamp set we got with our Convention bags!!! I LOVE it!

I also used the Cutter Kit to cut the Bella Rose Designer Paper that's on the bottom half of the card. I glued the flowers on with Crystal Effects - it was easier than using a tape runner on each flower too!

I'm back!

Sorry for the long absence.....things have been soooooooo crazy here! I thought after convention, it would slow down, then I thought after my big used stamp sale, it would slow down....well their both over and NOTHING has slowed down!!!!! LOL

I wanted to keep sharing pictures with you from convention and other various stamping keep your eyes open this week and I'll try my best!

If you missed my Used Stamp sale - I'm was FABULOUS!!!! I had 20 people that contributed fantastic products at GREATLY reduced prices! Thanks to all of you that helped out with that! I also had EXCELLENT help on Friday and Saturday - HUGE thanks to that! Buyer traffic was more than we could have ever expected! The word has spread - this is the sale to be at!

My sale was scheduled to end at 2pm on Saturday - with the FANTASTIC help that I had - there was absolutely no sign of a stamp sale by 3pm when my pool party started!!! LOL We had 55 people here to enjoy the beautiful weather, play some volleyball, stuff themselves with North Dakota walleye, french fries and tons of party food - it was a huge success all the way around! Kelly found herself fast asleep in the recliner in the living room by 10pm!!! LOL Not life of the party this time! LOL I was just DONE!

I had to share this next picture with you! My sister-in-law made this fruit tribesman - is this hilarious or what??? Thanks Candace! I made 2 of them on yesterday - one for the Meet the Volleyball Parents cookout at the high school and one for my Bunco party last night - they were a HUGE hit!

I'm back from CONVENTION!!!!!

WOW - what a TRIP this was!!!! Each year I can't imagine that Stampin' Up! can top the previous convention - but they NEVER let me down!!!!

It's after 10:30pm here and I've been in airports since 8:30 this morning (and that's another WHOLE story for a later time-LOL) -- but I just had to share a few photos and my INCREDIBLE excitement with you before I head to bed.....

I had 4 of my downline at convention this year and we had a BLAST!!!! Here's a picture of Cathy, me, Nikki and Terri in front of the convention center. Cheryl is missing from this photo -- but I'll have more.....

Can you feel the excitement in the next photo? This was a general session.....6000 stampin' maniac's under one roof!

This next photo is the "gathering place" - can you see the tons of display boards in the far background??? They were incredible and I'll be sharing LOTs of photos from them when I get my life back together.....

OK - so here's the INCREDIBLE news.....I got to the convention center Wednesday afternoon and I went to the info booth to pick up my SU bag....I knew that I had qualified for some awards....but you should have heard the screaming when my Service Account Manager pulled out the PINK BAG and handed it over!!!!! what does that mean??? I made the "Top 100 Demonstrators" award!!!!!! This bag comes with an all expense paid trip to a beautiful St. George, Utah resort to participate in Founder's Circle!!!!! Here's my pink bag....the material inside the bag is actually patterned after one of our exclusive designer papers!!!

And now for the rest of the story......OK - so I'm sitting there at awards night and they start to announce all Top 100 Demonstrators from 100 on down.....I was expecting to be in the 95-100 group....NOPE, my name wasn't on that wasn't on the next screen...or the next...or the NEXT. Now I'm starting to get a little nervous....and VERY excited! I'm waiting "very impatiently" for my name to I grab my SAM (service account manager- she was running around by me) and I ask her if they forgot my name - LOL! She says "oh no Kelly - you just hang on!" My hands and feet are starting to this is really funny, because I don't usually get nervous....walking up on that stage in front of 6o00 people is really quite easy for me....after all, I've already been up there a couple times in the previous day.....

When my name finally appears - I was TOTALLY FLOORED!!!!!! Number 40 - WOW!!!!

THANK YOU - all my customers and my downline for helping me achieve this goal! It's was an INCREDIBLE journey for me and I LOVE each and every one of you!!!!! It was such an honor and I'm still in AWE of the whole thing!

OK - enough about me....well for now! LOL Stay tuned for some fantastic display photos in the next day or so...

And again - THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!
