Stampin' Up Regional Convention in Lansing, MI

Here are a couple of pictures from the Stampin' Up Regional Event my group attended in Lansing on November 10!!  What an awesome experience it was!!  I even got to speak briefly with Shelli Gardner, Stampin' Up's Co-founder and CEO - of course, that was a real treat for me :).
These gals are all in my downline - well, now they are!!  Jane (on the far left) came as my guest that day.  But, Stampin' Up offered a great incentive (any free stamp set out of the catalog) if she joined that day at the Regional - so, on top of 10 Free Ink Pads!, Jane also got to pick a free stamp set!!  She just couldn't say no!  I'm thrilled to have her "officially" in our group now!  Next to Jane are my cousin Sonia, Aunt Marty, Chris (not related!) and Shawn (also not related!).  We had so much fun!!

Here is Chris receiving her free "Prize Patrol" prize from Shannon West.  We met Shannon, and a few of the other gals from the Stampin' Up corporate office, the night before the Regional at an event that our upline, Ronda Wade, held.  It was really neat to meet these gals, and then see them the next day at the Regional, too!  They were all so sweet!

This last picture is my swap for the day!  Of course, I CASE'd it (from Tammy Fite) on Stampin' Connection!  I LOVE this Festival of Prints DSP Paper Stack.  There are so many great patterns in this cute stack of paper!  I made the Snowflake from the Snow Flurry Bigz Die in Lucky Limeade (the medium snowflake) and Cherry Cobbler (the small snowflake) and added a pearl to finish it off.  I wrapped 5/8" Victoria Crochet Trim around the card and stamped the sentiment "Merry Christmas and a happy new Year" from the Delightful Dozen set.  I just love this card - thanks to Tammy for her inspiration!!
