Convention 2011

Amazing and Wonderful is what the Stampin' Up! Convention is. It was held in Salt Lake City, Utah between July 13-16. I wasn't sure what to expect as a first timer, but I went prepared with 100 swaps.  Over the course of those days, I  swapped, yakked, toured the home office, attended classes on project ideas, watched sample demonstrations on how to conduct workshops, made make 'n takes, snapped over 150 photos of wonderful ideas that surrounded me and just soaked in all the creativity.  I came home with 5 stamp sets, My Digital Studio content CD and a set of the new Holiday Mini Catalog that comes out on Sept. 1. Oh my gosh, there is  a lot of beautiful ideas in that!  SU spoiled us with an amazing conference tote bag, free Idea Book & Catalog with coordinating binder and so much more. I even did a little shopping in the Memento Mall. The speakers were inspiring and all the women (and a few men) were so friendly. It was like we were one big family!  I can't wait to go back next year and maybe you'll want to join me in all the fun!
