Founder's Circle PJ Party & Swap!

Does this look like fun or what????






































Here's Shelly Gardner in her PJ's desperately trying to finish her swap cards....now I know where I get it from - LOL!

















Orange juice, mixed with pinapple juice and sherbet ice cream make an incredible float!!!


















Rootbeer floats with dry ice make for sooooo much fun!






































This is what a 121 women in their PJ's look like when they are lined up in a hotel hallway swapping holiday cards!









































This is a 121 swap cards that I took for my swap - thanks to my downline - I was ready for the big event!



















Founder's Circle Samples

Here are a few samples from my trip last week.....

This is a sample board that Stampin' Up! put together with the new stamp set we received in our shower bag.






















I wish I could remember who brought these earrings along to share.....sorry! They are made with our Filigree Assortment and Rhinestone Brads - how creative is that????

















Patty Bennett came up with this idea - using the new Pennant Diecut to make a Criss-Cross card!!!!
















Here's a sample with the NEW Holiday Mini stamp set - A Christmas Cardinal - the vellum layer is cut with the Top Note Bigz Die on page 28 of the Holiday mini!























This is the stamp set on sale this month - Pocket Silhouettes!!! Isn't it beautiful???


SU Gifts

Here are the rest of the FABULOUS gifts we received everyday while at Founder's Circle!!!!

A pink wallet to match our pink purses we were given at Convention!!!

















A journal and matching pan to write all those important tips in that were flying out of the mouths of TOP demonstrators in the US and Canada!!!!


















This GORGEOUS necklace with our initials is breath taking to say the least!

















Yea...I'm not pointing at my "hoo-hoo" here - look at the necklace silly!!!!





















And last, but certainly not least was this luxurious pink blanket!!!! These were placed on all our chairs when we were wisked away for a final "SURPRISE" dinner on Satuday night....more on that later!



I'm Back!!!!

Founder's Circle was ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS!!!! I wish I could have taken you ALL with me!!!!!!

We arrived in Las Vegas on Wednesday to be wisked away on a bus to St. George Utah - about a 2 hour ride. We arrived a few minutes late for our 7pm welcome dinner. We were greeted at the door by the SU staff and brought into the dining room for a 1st class reception dinner. Check out the table clothes and flowers!!!
















I don't remember what we had for dinner, but being a SWEET girl at heart...the dessert was delicious!!!!


















We played a "get to know you" game and everyone received this stamp set! Don't you love that new ribbon - it's in the Holiday Mini Catalog that you should have received in the mail while I was gone.























After dinner - I had a chance to go check out my room.....this was hanging from our doors - I LOVE that wide pink ribbon - it was on everything we received. SU really knows how to dress things up!



















We each got our own rooms - and they were fabulous. We were the only occupants of the Marriot at St. George.

































This is what I found hanging in my bathroom!!!!! I left it there, admiring it until the next morning when I went to take a shower.......




















HOLY COW - it was filled with stuff!!!!!




















Next I headed down to the Gathering Place to find this!!!!! Check out the little buckets on the 2nd shelf with that pink ribbon again!!!! We just filled them up and ate candy until we couldn't see straight - LOL!






















Stampin' UP! doesn't do anything halfway...... they had all these couches, blankets and pillows for us to relax and visit!


















Here's the dessert we enjoyed with lunch on day 2 - it was so fancy - I just had to take a picture of it!

















Stay tuned this week for more fun!

Coming to you from Founder's Circle

Hello Everyone ~

I really wish I had the ability to upload some pictures!!!! I'm in St. George Utah - at Stampin' Up's Founder's Circle gathering!!!!! I'm on the hotel computer and it won't let me load anything...I just wanted to tell you that I have tons of stuff to show you all!!!! We did our pajama party last night - fully equipped with tons of candy, root beer floats, orange sherbet floats and fancy snacks (I don't know how to spell hordouevers - LOL!). We sat around on couches with huge pink pillows and blankets and shared our best business ideas - it was just a BLAST! We also had a HUGE holiday card swap last night - I have ideas from all the BEST in the business!!!!!

I can' wait to share all the pictures with you - we have received a beautiful gift everyday!!!! YES - some of these gifts are STAMPS!!!!

I'm off to go shopping - be back on Sunday!
