The Convention Kick Off Party was so much fun! My team member and dear friend Tonya joined me in the fun. The kick off party theme was Summertime and the challenge was to decorate a hat with Stamp Up Products.
I was so excited to find a hat for 3.95. I immediately began to decorate it. The funny thing is once I arrived to party and it was time to wear my hat that I was so proud off… didn’t fit my head. Lol! My head was stuffed in it. Once I took it off I had creases in my forehead!!!
I used the Stampin’ Up! Flower Folds Die and Beautiful Butterflies to decorate my hat, badge and sandals. Check out Tonya’s pretty hat! What a smart gal… she used paper to decorate her hat so she can still wear it long after the party!
Wow!!! Isn’t this hat adorable. This kind demonstrator’s name was Sue and she let me photograph her work of art. Thanks Sue!!!
This year I participated in several fun and organized swaps. I also made 100 general swaps. It takes hours to make your swaps and it took me less than a hour or so to trade. Its so much fun!!! Its a great way to get ideas and learn from your fellow Stampin Up Demonstrators and friends. Here’s Tonya… Swappin’!
Do I see a “Bling” Swap?
Yay… for a “Zoom” lens. Lol!!!
Another Highlight was meeting a fellow Stampin’ Up Demonstrator whom I look up too named Robin. Robin was so kind to stop and talk with Tonya and I. She is also a member of Utah Divas International. Pretty Cool!
Check back tomorrow for Opening Day and General Session!!! Before I go… I will leave you with some more Ideas and Inspiration!!!
