Convention Day 1

WOW!! What a morning it has been! I've just got a few minutes between classes to post a few updates. First off, I'm so excited I won the new My Digital Studio scrapbooking software today!!!! I could not believe it when they called my tag number. I'm sure some of my friend have pictures of me jumping up and down and screaming my head off and I'll try to get a few so I can post them later. The morning started off with the usual Stampin' Up! aerobics program call Dance You Stampin' butt off! We had so much fun and I know I needed another shower by the time it was all over. Then of course a lovely young lady came out (and I don't know her name but I will try to get it) and sang this year's convention theme song. While a group of young gymnasts performed. They were fabulous!! See for yourself!

Following that Shelli came out to of course welcome us all to this year's convention and she looks as young and fabulous as ever. After that there were the 5, 10, 15, and 20 year marches followed by the lifetime sales marches and the newest million dollar seller. It was very exciting and so fun to see many of my friend march across the stage. AHere's a collage of my fun group this morning. After all of that we have more presentations including a great one of the new Build A Bear stamp sets and Big Shot dies that will be available in the Holiday mini catalog. Some really cute stuff!











It was then announced that we'd be able to purches our own Stampin' Up! build a bear in Memento Mall. So here's mine, isn't she cute?? Check out her paw!!



























I'm having a fabulous time and learning so many new things, it's amazing! I will try to post as I can but we are REALLY busy!! For lots of updates check out Stampin' Addicts, James has been blogging, twittering and I don't know what all else all day! He's posting updates as they become available!! Until later!!!
