Convention and More

Ok, so does any one else travel for a few days and get slammed when they get home? well I have been super busy with scrap club, card kits, classes and a few other stampin related items. Plus my husband is installing hardwood in my Living room, dining room and foyer. OMG my house is a complete disaster- everything had to be removed from the rooms!!!

any way….here are a few shots from Convention and some Highlights for me. Hope to have some new samples tomorrow

Here are some ladies on my local team

Georgann, Arlene, Deanna, Lanie, ME and Ann

This is me and Deanna – another great stamping buddy and business builder!!! o ne of my “go to” gals- she always helps me out of a tight spot- love you Deanna!

Here I am walking across the stage for $30,000 in sales this year! wooo Hooo my all time personal best! I just missed walking for recruiting. I also Earned the Cruise to the Southern Caribbean this year-! wooohooo! a big thanks goes out to all of my customers and downline and teammates for helping me achieve this accomplishment!!!! Hugs to you all!!!!

Me shopping the INSANE momento Mall! OMG the lines were insane!!! many hours standing in line!!

Here we are at the Splitcoast dinner. Do you see who that is in the picture??? Yes- the one and only Linda Hansen. Soooo sweet and nice. what a treat to sit with her. She looked great and guess what- she has 6 downline and is still a Demo!!!! the other Ladies are from my team- Maria, Theresa, Kathy, Lisa and Lanie

Another highlight: seeing my artwork on the display boards! what a neat feeling! This was one of my display board samples– but I had some of my artisan award entires on display as well! so cool!

And guess what- even though I was not one of the 10 winners- i was in the top 30. They announced my name at awards night!!!!!

here is my son in the YOU ROCK scrap page

and here is my friendship journal

Here is me and my BEST STAMPING BUDDY Lanie. we met at convention 3 years ago in Denver. We both went alone on that trip and we met in baggage claim. We stamp similar styles, live close to one another and we are still friends 3 conventions later!

Here we are with Build-a-bear

This was our RemArkable team Dinner and showbox swap. this was incredible!!! the food was Yummy and the stamping was fabulous! 31 ladies participated!!!

Here is one of my downline- Shauna. This convention was her 1st convention!
