US Convention 2013 – Salt Lake City, Utah

We are home from our fantastic adventure of the US and I have lots to share.  I’ll start today with the US Stampin’ Up! Convention!  I was thrilled to be able to attend but nothing prepared me for the sight of nearly 7000 other SU demonstrators all in the one location!  Salt Lake City was in convention mode when we first arrived and it was exciting to see that Salt Lake City welcomed Stampin’ Up! everywhere!

Bec and I donned our best Stampin’ Up! Convention gear for the first day!

and we were a little amazed at the sight of all the demonstrators lined up to enter the general session room.

It was a fantastic opportunity to chat to the people around you, though we didn’t have to wait long to get anywhere. Once inside it was amazing to see everyone together!    And in true Stampin’ Up! style, convention kicked off with a bang! – with The Voice contestant Ryan Innes, singing the 2013 Convention song along with fireworks!

This was also my husband’s FIRST Stampin’ Up! Convention! Bec’s husband Matt and my husband Warren were thrilled to receive their convention bags!

And Rose Ellen who was the very first US demonstrator we met in the SU room of our hotel.  Loved her to bits!

Well that’s the very quick highlights of our US convention experience.  If you attend my classes or events, you’ll no doubt get to see some of the awesome ideas we have brought home with us!  I’ll do my best to get back over the next few days to start sharing our Incentive Trip with you!  I have my daughter’s 10th B’day party this Sunday, so if I don’t get back before, it’ll be Monday for sure!  Have a great weekend everyone!
