Stampin Up! 2012 Convention - Friends

Here are a few pics from our last night out with friends.  We went to the super delicious restaurant called the Rodizio Grill.

From left to right - Susie, LeeAnn, Robyn/my Upline, Kari, Carey, Kris/my Sideline, Me, Marguerite, Linda, and Hanna. This is definetly one of my favorite things about Convention - getting together with friends! 

This restaurant is a Brazilian Steakhouse and they bring grilled food out to your tables on large roasting skewers.  They slice it fresh and you can eat as much as you want or as little, but we ate much, much, more than we needed.  It was sooooo good. We had sirloin steak, marinated and spicy chicken, swordfish, pork loin, wild boar!, yes, I said wild boar and it was delicious.  We tried tri-tip steak, ham and lots more too.  Plus they have a fabulous salad bar, soups and breads to round off your meal. If you ever get to SLC, you have to try this place.
Here is my upline, Robyn, getting on the shuttle that took us to the restuarant and back to our hotels.

Convention 2012

I am home from convention and cannot believe that it is over.  I am so looking forward to next year already - 25 YEAR Anniversary for Stampin Up!  I just know they will out do themselves again.

But you know, I just cannot get our 2012 convention theme song out of my head.  I have been singing it all day already. So I thought I might share it with you also.

"I Am" Convention 2012 Theme Song

You will get to see some of the corporate headquarters in Riverton, Utah as this video takes place inside the offices.  Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

If you have any questions or comments, please let me know.

Stampin Up Convention 2012

Hello Everyone,

I made it to convention in Salt Lake City, Utah, on Wednesday and I am exhausted. This years slogan for convention is "I Am".  Can you finish the sentence for yourself, "I Am?"

Mine would be, "I am ABLE".  I am able to be here on this earth through the graciousness of God. I am able to Love what I do and Share what I Love.

I am at convention with two amazing and talented women, Robyn and Kris. Robyn is my upline and Kris is in Robyn's downline along with me.  Robyn has earned a trip to Fiji, all expenses paid and Kris is new to Stampin Up and she is just happy winning a Free stamp set and paper peircing templates.  Here are a few pictures of our experience.

Robyn has earned all expense paid trip to Fiji

Kris winning Free Product.
I have also won Free product, I have had one of my cards displayed on Stampin Ups Inspirational Boards, I have met and swapped cards with talented women.  I have gone to awesome breakout classes, with some of the most experienced, creative, and savvy staff presenters such as:
Bonnie Thurber, who taught me how to "Doing Business My Way", or Emily Montoya who taught how "Reaching Out" to our Gen Y groups.  Then there was Pam Morgan showing us, how we can "Make Money" while loving what we already love to do, and then Donna Griffith & Shannon West teaching us all those "Savvy" techniques and awesome projects.

Here are a few more pictures of what has been happening this week at Stampin Up's Convention.

My card is the double cherry card.

With this last picture I say good night.  This is a view from my hotel room.  All I can say is God is Great! 

Good night and thanks for looking.
