Stampin' Up! Convention Blog Hop

We wanted to share our highlights of the recent Stampin' Up! Inspire Create Share Convention on the Gold Coast. This is the last time that this event will be held as we know it in the future the new Stampin' Up! events are going to be called OnStage Live, Local or Online and is just for demonstrators to take part in. We will be seeing sneak peek items at every event. It's a fantastic change and is very exciting.

Here are some of my highlights from the Convention. There were so many to list but here are a few of my highlights!

Firstly I was awarded First place in Recruiting and Leadership. I am thrilled to have received these awards as it is the third year in a row that I have received it. The most exciting part? That some of my family got to come along and celebrate it with me! We had family dinner first.

Then it was time for awards night - I think my Dad almost jumped out of his skin with the screaming. He said "I thought only teenage girls screamed like that?" How wrong you are Dad, he has now experienced a Stampin' Up! event!

Here is the stunning card I received with some memento awards that I can choose as an award. This card is using the BRAND NEW Watercolour Wings that coordinates with the Bold Butterfly Framelits. The congrats sentiment was using the Cottage Greetings.

Here is my Mum, my two sisters and Bruno having fun at the after party.

I also loved that Bruno did his Make and Takes this year - while I was busy chatting and doing my busy doing my swaps.

Watercolouring with the new Watermelon Wonder and using the Mint Macaron.

It was AWESOME spending time in person with the Crazy Crafters. 

I love catching up with so many that we know too! Including some celebrity spotting. lol

Amanda Maycock who organised the whole event and is soooooo much fun.
