Founder's Circle - Day 2

Founder's Circle - Day 1

I was up at the crack of dawn today to start my journey to St. George, Utah for the fabulous Founder’s Circle Retreat....joining 123 of the top Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from the US and Canada for a few days of pampering!

We enjoyed a great lunch upon arrival and then had our choice of cupcakes and candy in the hospitality room set up just for us...


Here’s a photo of Jane Wike and I snacking on Chocolates and finishing up our swap cards for the PJ Card Swap that will take place tomorrow night!!!


Early evening found us in the dining room for a “welcome dinner” Stampin’ Up! style...

 Here are the place settings at each chair....


Stampin’ Up! is soooo good to us...I played the PLINKO game earlier today and won a pack of Wisteria Wonder cardstock and then returned to my room to find this box filled with NEW product from the upcoming Occasions Mini Catalog...I wish I could show you what’s inside...but some of the products won’t be available until January and it’s against policy to show photos of those.  This box contains a fabulous new stamp set (I can’t wait to share it with you!), several ink pads, paper flowers, mini clothes pins, linen thread, a pack of note cards & envelopes and a new die that I’ll be using tomorrow to create my Make-N-Takes!


Check back tomorrow to follow me on this amazing trip!  And a HUGE thank you to all my wonderful stamping friends for your support and encouragement - I couldn’t do it without you!

Thanks for stopping by...

Kelly, Stampin' Up sure treats you well, of course you worked hard and earned it. Thanks for sharing the pictures. Beautiful place setting! Have lots of fun!

You so earned this trip (all 123 of you!) -and know you will enjoy everything - have to say that the cupcake bar makes me very jealous but just as well I'm not there...would be a hard place to avoid...LOL!!


Hi Kelly,
I am trying this again to see if it will let me send a note without signing in.

You guys are certainly getting wonderful treatment and of course you do deserve it. Hope you are having fun
