I won!

2012 Stampin' Up Convention

Can you tell how much fun I was having?  What you don't see is not only did I win a new stamp set but the punch template along with mat and tool.  Yeah!  YOU have got to go to Convention next year with me!

SLC Mall Across from the Salt Palace

Here are a few more photos from the new City Center Mall.  Yes, it is outdoor. 

 This little man made "brook" runs through the first floor.  Lovely.

Stampin' Up Convention Video!

Displays and Cute Momental Hall Shopping

Top picture is a display in the Gathering Place.  SU home office sets up displays both with craft items and samples of card submitted primarily by demonstrators.  Way fun.  I'll start posting some of the swaps I received at convention soon. 

I participated in two organized swaps and of course, the general swaps.  More to follow...

Stampin' Up 2012 Convention

Shelli Gardner

Shelli Gardner - 2012 Stampin' Up Convention
The convention theme this year was "I am"...Shelli always does a nice job on stage. 

As I mentioned yesterday, the weather was quite pleasant, at least I thought so.  Pretty sad when it's hotter in Indianapolis than in Salt Lake City.  It's a 'dry heat' in SLC. 

Next year will be the 25th Year celebration for Stampin' Up...plan to join us next year!

Convention Shopping

Across the street from the Salt Palace, the new mall was ready for our arrival.  Here are a couple pictures.  I could see these stores from my hotel room at the Marriott...stamping and shopping?  Oh yes...it was a very good time indeed!

FREE Stamps...

Bundle 1
I just returned from Convention in Salt Lake City. Just me and 3500 of my closest stampin' friends.   Oh my...what a great time.  Weather was picture perfect,  Presentations were exceptional, classes enlightening and just a plain a good time was had by all.

I came home with a special project I can't wait to show everyone, and 8 (EIGHT,,,count them 8, FREE stamp sets and a handy new Convention Bag.  I'll post pics as soon as I get them from camera to hard drive.  Flights from/to Indy and Salt Lake were uneventful unless you can count the praying my luggage would actually CLOSE on the way home.  One more item and I would have been either purchasing another piece of luggage or paying UPS a FORTUNE to ship the loot home. 

Oh, I nearly forgot, the picture above is the Bundle of goodies I got from the Holiday Catalog (can't really call it a "mini catalog" any more...at least not in my opinion.  Oh, don't worry, the bundle is not the ONLY items I have from the Holiday Catalog.  My big order should arrive shortly.  Open the catalog at your own risk.  It really would have been easier to make a list of those 'few' items I didn't think I wanted/needed.  Now, after attending Convention, I want it all, lol!  We always get great ideas showcasing everything that makes me know I have to have it all.

Until next time...

Happy Stampin'
