OMG OMG OMG!!!!!! Today was the last day of convention....Boo Hoo....BUT it was the best yet.
I took hundreds of pictures, yep hundreds....Here is one of me standing in front of one of the display boards with our Orange convention bag we receive free and filled with stamps and other goodies when we get to convention. The package sticking up in my bag is a package of Play Date accents (pg 176 of the catalog) that I won for spinning a carnival wheel....
All the cards on these display boards were sent in by fellow demonstrators each month over the past year for various contests. Each board is a different base color and there are cards, scrapbook pages and 3D items on display. Thousands of items on display as well as displays of the cards and items demonstrated throughout the 3 days of convention.
I met with Shelli, instead of eating lunch.....She signed my book and the back of my t shirt and had my picture taken with her. I also talked with her about the Ronald McDonald House and my experiences volunteering there. I showed her the card I was given by two girls last month....SHE LOVED IT.
Shelli and I
They announced that Regionals was going to be held in Baltimore, Maryland....Oct 1 and 2nd. So if you are thinking of becoming a demonstrator.... NOW THE TIME!!!!
At the end of today's convention Shelli said, sometimes we give away free product.....Well, how about the Hostess Level 2 set from the Holiday Mini (that we have seen used many times), AND Holiday DSP, AND coordinating ink pad AND chunky glitter.....Of course the place went wild.....Confetti dropped from the ceiling and everyone was screaming and cheering and applauding. The Prize patrol came out handing out the Holiday bundles for us. IT WAS AWESOME!! What an AWESOME COMPANY!!!
I can't wait to start using some of these new toys. Heading home tomorrow after a magical week in Salt Lake City with Pre convention stamp camp, stamp camp with CSI NY (Cards stock stamps and Ink), An Evening to Remember with Linda Hansen and Jaron Winder, and the wonderful, awesome, fantastic Convention, Shelli, Brent Steele, Pam Morgan, Carrie Cudney, Spencer Willis, the many stamping friends I haven't seen in a year, the new stamping friends I met and so much more. Can you tell I have had a good time?????
