Convention highlights part 1

Well this was surely a Convention to remember for me!!

When I checked in for convention they told me I had won an award.  I had no idea I had won Founder circle!  What an honor to be in the top 100 US demonstrators out of more than 35,000 or how ever many there are of us!!!

this is me when I got the bag.  I was not expecting this even though my teammates kept telling me they thought I would be there!!



this is my friend Laurie--she got a bag too!


and this is my Upline (by 4 levels) Janet Wakeland in the gray sweater)-- she got a bag too!  She is a big part of my success she is AMAZING and so motivating!!  I'm excited to go on vacation with 2 of my stamping friends!!!




As if the bag was not enough...you had to wait a whole day and a half till you found out the specifics!  more on that tomorrow!

FUN SHOPPING AT memento mall:  Craft totes, laptop bags, shopping bags, pop up trash cans and MORE!!!



Lunch time in the gathering place is crazy!!


A trip to the home office (my 1st time ever) was also very memorable! Fabulous ideas in the Legacy Room




WOW what a beautiful place to work!!



This is Me and my teammate Arlene outside the building!
