Stampin' Up! Convention Day 2

Oh what a day!  What a wonderful, fantastic, amazing day.  We started out with a huge opening party and general session hosted by the fabulous Shelli.
We even got a sneak peek of some products coming out in the new holiday catalogue!  Weeeeee!!!!  I LOVE gift wrapping, so let's suffice it to say that I'm already planning classes in my head with these fab new additions to the Stampin' Up! product line.  
The amazing Becky Higgins made an appearance and stayed to chat for a while with Shelli on stage.  She shared her journey and also how Stampin' Up! and Project Life are a perfect match.  
After general session I wanted to head somewhere that is near and dear to my heart - the display boards.  This year I had the incredible honour of being chosen to join this amazing group of stampers.
Then it was a quick trip to the home office where I took a few pictures with some of my team, peeked around in the legacy room, and poked my head in the warehouse.  I've been to the home office several times before, but I love to see the looks on the faces of my downline as they drink it all in for the first time.
Look closely….lots of new product in these photos I took in the legacy room!
The highlight of my day was seeing my fab friend Melody (and her fab coworkers) present some absolutely MIND BLOWING techniques at the Stamps, Ink, and Paper Class this evening.
The big ah ha moment for me was when Melody showed us how to merge two Undefined pieces of rubber to make one HUGE piece to carve some massive stamps.  I'm SO incredibly excited to try this technique when I get home.  And in typical Melody fashion she shared some absolutely stunning stamps that she had carved.  I'm so lucky to call this amazing woman my friend.
Thanks for checking in friends.  I've got another busy day ahead of me tomorrow so I should head to bed.  I'll fill you in on more excitement soon!

Happy Stampin'
