This was my 5th Stampin' Up! convention...what a blast! I traveled with one of my downline, Laurie Z. She was the best convention buddy ever! It was her first convention and she was so much fun to be with, to watch her experience her first convention. (There is nothing like your 1st convention!)
Here she is checking in to get her convention bag (aren't they adorable this year?!), and receive her "My 1st Convention" pin.
After getting our convention bags, which by the way, are filled with Stampin' Up! goodies...stamp sets, pen, convention notebook, convention pin and more, we move on to the awards booth.
Here I am waiting for my sales, recruiting and incentive trip awards and pins.
Look at that goofy look on my face...completely unaware of what is coming next...THE PINK PURSE! What does that mean? Well - the top 100 demonstrators earn recognition of Founder's Circle and receive THE PURSE, cash & a trip to St. George, UT. My heart went to my toes when he brought out the purse. I could hardly believe it. I'm just a demonstrator from a small MN town (population 742) - how could that be possible? A lot of hard work! I guess I did have a great year. A BIG thanks goes out to my customers, club members and demonstrators (and my SAM) - you all ROCK!
So here's the purse...
What a whirlwind check-in day!
