Stampin' Up! Convention 2013

Today I want to share a few pics of things from convention starting with the pillow gifts I received from my upline Glenda, fellow demo Belinda, Glenda's friend France and a few ladies in her downline...Holly, Lynne,  and Stephanie.  Wow, did they make great pillow gifts!  Notecards, notebooks, candy, survival kits, knitted socks, goodies and even a working clock. :)

Here is a picture of the group eating lunch and trying to stay cool.  I don't remember the name of this restaurant, but four of the ladies ordered salmon and I'm told it's the best around.  Nope, I didn't try it because I'm not a seafood kind of gal.

I thought I'd also show you a couple of card swaps from two of these ladies.  I started with these because they did something I've never heard of...made the cards ready to place on the actual card piece that needs to be folded.  I thought this was so neat because I always had to somehow make the card fronts smaller so I could make them into cards from earlier swaps.  This first card is from Lynne and reminds me of the bike from the Sale-a-bration catalog that was a favorite of mine.  Such a cute card.

Holly made this second card and I love the simplicity of it, yet it's so elegant too.

I'm sure most of you have seen pictures of the backpack by now.  This is the bag we received from Stampin' Up! and since it was my first convention it the first bag I've ever received from them...and I love it! 

My upline Glenda made each of us a tag to put on our bags somewhere.  Guess that's a good idea when you have thousands of women walking around with the same bag! lol

I plan on posting more swaps and pictures for you to see.  We definitely got a lot of goodies. :)

Thanks for looking and have a great day!
