Oh my .....where do I start??? I am sooo excited about the Convention trip! I have so much to share with you that I'm not sure where to start!!
I guess I'll start at the beginning! :)
Christine and I flew out on Tuesday and we had a great two hour flight! So quick and easy! While at the airport we right away met some new stamping friends!! We were sitting at the gate and I sat down right next to a girl and I saw her swaps sticking out of her bag! I knew that they had to be Stampin up! demos!!
When we landed we took a quick cab ride to our hotel. We stayed at the Marriott right across the street form the Convention centre and the beds were so soft and cozy!!!
Here we are the next morning. Ready and excited for what the next few days would bring!!
We got our convention bags and all the free stamps inside and boarded the bus for the Riverton Campus tour. This is where Stampin Up!'s head office is and the warehouse where all the stamps are stored, picked and boxed up to be sent to us! The most amazing thing about this place is the legacy room where some very talented people put together these amazing displays featuring all Stampin up! product.
I can' possible share all my photos but here are some of the really cool things about the Riverton campus:
The "Sweet Shop" display...with everything made from Supplies!! Just click the picture to get a larger view!
A very cool girl's bedroom!! Even the chandelier was made of paper flowers!!!
These flowers on the wall were unbelievable!

Once we were done th tour...we headed back to the awards booth where Christine and I both got free stamps and a pin for our $20,000 in sales this past year. Then we went to Momento Mall and did some major shopping for Stampin up! loot!...More on that later :)
