I am truly blessed to have had an amazing time this past weekend in Vancouver for Stampin up!'s Onstage Convention. We arrived on Friday and it was a beautiful afternoon in downtown Vancouver. There were 11 of us from my Ink-Cited Canadians team that went. Everyone dispersed for the afternoon to explore the beautiful city. Some ladies visited Granville Island, some visited family members and I went straight to the hotel and Convention centre to check in and head to my rehearsal for my presentation. Look at the beautiful views from the gorgeous Pan pacific Hotel which was in the same building as the Convention centre. It was a great hotel and I'm so happy we chose to stay here.
After my rehearsal, I had some time to myself to grab a Starbucks and walk along the waterfront. What a beautiful city!
At 5:30, I headed to the Centre Stage Event for the evening. This is an event offered to Silver Elite Leaders and above. I am blessed to have a Gold title which allows me to attend this wonderful evening. We were treated to a wonderful buffet dinner and dessert. The food was amazing! We had some leadership training and heard from fellow demonstrators about how they run their business and we got to chat together and share ideas. It was fabulous!
Meeting up with some demo friends from all over the country! left to right, Evelyn Woods, me, Alison Solven, and Lisa Althouse.
Beautiful flower arrangements on each table...
One of the best parts of the evening... getting handed one of the 2019-2020 Annual Catalogues! This Catalogue is absolutely amazing!!
At the end of the evening, I met up with some more demo friends... Jenilee Pauls, Jenn Picard, Connie Collins and Leanne Livingston. So many wonderful, inspirational ladies in one place!!
As we walked out of the conference room we were handed a Centre stage gift! A beautiful clutch style bag and inside was a brand new Timeless label Punch. Boy, were we spoiled!!
Come back and see my next post which will be all about Day 2! There's so much to share!
