Wow - what an amazing few days in Manchester I've just had at Stampin' Up! European Convention. I was chuffed to bits to spend time with so many of my fellow teamies and to meet two of them for the first time too!! I met old friends and new friends, learnt loads, came away so inspired that I've actually had a good old tidy up in the room of craft. I've got more project ideas going on inside my head than you can shake a stick at!
So do you wanna see some photos? You do? Good - I've condensed them into collages or this would end up being the longest post I've ever written:
Firstly there's a shot of Louise my down line and roomie - my goodness we laughed - this is us at the Silver 2 Reception. Next most of the Stampin' Stars team with Natalie doing her bestest star impression, then the recognition booth, Karen, me and Louise then me and the lovely Jo.
Some of the gorgeous stuff we were given. Firstly the fabulous presentation folder and pen from the Silver 2 Reception, my beautiful bag tag made by Louise along with my very own bag charm, it's not Stampin' Up! but if you'd like one drop me a message or an email to order one! My recognition badges etc and this years convention back pack.
Have to share some gifts. Starting with my roomie gift from Louise - with hand stamped slate coasters inside, let's say not all the coffee made it home - well they do say every things premiere but the price but there was a SERIOUS lack of coffee in our room! My pretty gift packaging and lovely gift from my up line Kim and finally my beautiful hanging wall decoration from my lovely friend Cal.
Here some fun - Sarah and Karen, Stampin' Up! staff, Louise and her enormous cupcake, Jane, Helen and Nic and the oh so pretty iced flower light table decoration from the Silver 2 Reception.
Next up my cute gift from Natalie, Louise and others in the recognition booth, Paula Gorry in her 'comfy' shoes, Louise winning on prize patrol, Sara Douglass (Shelli's daughter), Pam Morgan oh and Louise again!
Oh a really bad selfie of Louise and I, my proudest moment watching Louise presenting her workshop wow on stage, Helen and Nic clapping as we awaited an all attendee giveaway (one of many!), Zoe being Zoe!, Pam Morgan on stage and the lovely Cal doing her thing with her Demonstrator booth.
Finishing off with my favourite pic of the weekend - there was a party photo booth at the 25 year celebration party after awards night and we managed to grab Sara Douglass to come in and be sensible with us:
The next three years Stampin' Up! Convention will be held in Brussels - how exciting is that? If you'd like to join my team and come along to the next one, drop me an email at:
