Stampin' Up! Convention 2013 - Day 1

Today I joined almost 6000 of my demonstrator friends at Stampin' Up! Convention 2013!  It was a day FULL of excitement, so I'll try to give you a small taste.

First thing in the morning we went to get our convention shirt.  It's so adorable!

Cathy, Lindsay, Jes, Jen, Me (Sadly Avery is missing in the photo)
The most rewarding part of of convention for me is seeing the excitement and smiles on the faces of my downline who are attending.  Five on my team are here this year, it's amazing!

No trip to Stampin' Up! Convention is complete without a tour of the Home Office.  I have loads of photos of the Legacy Room (think creative project overload!), but I'll have to share those another day.  There's just SO MUCH to show you!

This year the Convention theme song was sung live by Ryan from The Voice!  He was incredible!!!!

Kristine (my upline) and I have gone to every Convention and Leadership together.  We also travel with our up up up upline Kim, I'll have to snap her picture tomorrow.  :)

Are you waiting to see the bag???  It's a super trendy white and silver mosaic backpack!  And Stampin' Up! is already filling it with stuff for us!!!!  4 free stamp sets and counting!

This evening at the Opening Social I had a change to drop off the cards my customers donated to Ronald McDonald House Charities.  Our 100 cards are in there ladies!!!  Thank you so much!

We were also part of a really fun challenge!  Guiness World Record people were on hand this evening as Stampin' Up! Demonstrators attempted to break the world record for most cards sent from a single location!  I'm happy to report that WE DID IT!!!!!  This was the total number of cards sent when I went through the line, I'm not sure of the final total.  

So much more to share with you my friends, but I've got to sleep.  I'm nearly delirious.  

Happy Stampin'


  1. Wow, great pics! Allison, you look super cute in your shirt..:0) We got those bags at the South Pacific Convention too, how cool are they and very handy with all the pockets. Loving seeing your pics, keep them coming and have a blast!

  2. OK Seriously! I think I should have been allowed to approve that pic of me. Or maybe you asked me and I was sleeping - ha ha! Convention was great as always! Love ya!
