Greetings faithful followers!!   I am so happy to be able to share some of the excitement of convention 2013 with all of you!!!

Our check in day was Thursday and it was a different experience than the other 8 conventions I have been to!  Check in was any time after 8 am; however, no convention bag! 🙁   We were all a bit disappointed….however that turned around quickly!  We were totally surprised and delighted when during the general session we were all treated to the distribution of our bags in grand style!

Isn’t it gorgeous?!!!   Can you say Gucci?!!!

The evening progressed with many more surprises and lots of prize patrols!!  We all got a FREE stamp set from our upcoming holiday catalog!!

I was able to catch up with my pal Dawn G.!!!  She and her husband Richard are so special to Paul and I!

Had to share a picture of Sylvia getting her first hug from a Stampin’ Up! employee!  Can you tell from the smile on her face that she is having the time of her life?!!!!

We have had an opportunity to celebrate some successes too!  Dawn, me, and Brandy were able to walk the stage together to celebrate the fact that we are all going to be on the Royal Caribbean’s Allure of the Seas ship courtesy of Stampin’ Up!  We are all achievers of the 2014 Stampin’ Up! Grand Vacation trip!!!  Woo Hoo!!!

Well, I gotta leave you now…gotta get ready for awards night!  We are all keeping our fingers crossed that someone from our group will earn something!

…….Until next time!
