Our shuttle driver picked us up by the "blue bear" seen here peering in MUCH larger than life into the convention center windows.
Free stamps.... one of the best perk's from convention. Here is some of my stash. I came home with a suitcase that was 10 pounds heavier!
This set is adorably wrapped by my friend Tami - almost too cute to undo, but I LOVE the set that it is inside, so it is open and mounted!
Convention has lots of traditions - one is gifts for those who attend. Here is a great journal, card and some fun Hawaiin decorations. My roommate had a Hawaii theme in our room to inspire us toward the next incentive trip!
Bonus for me - she used seasonal trees - of which I have several AND the white pottery in the Winter piece? I already have those too! Now to order all the other supplies to make the things. The pictures are chock full of details, so make sure to look closely!

We arrived Tuesday - checked in and met up with a dear friend who I have known forever and she joined a group of us for dinner. Wednesday morning we were up WAY too early (hate that alarm clock in your body that says it is 7am, when it is only 5am mountain time!) We were out of the hotel by 7:30 am and I wasn't back til midnight. LOOOOOOOOOOOOONNNG day. We stamped some great projects, nearly all of which will make it to a camp soon!
Today - up again at 5:30 am and out by 7. General Session was fun - again some GREAT stamping ideas and techniques. I have a quick moment before I need to run to work at a coloring class.....

Here is what close to 200 stamped cardfronts look like. I can't take credit for all of the work, Karisa did a fair bit of it (thus earning her some merchandise from Memento Mall!).
Stamping trades doesn't have a lot of inspirational value, but when you are done - it does give a great sense of accomplishment! Even more so when you get to go dispose of the your own cards and trade them for great ideas from other stampers.
I leave tomorrow for the Stampin' Up! covention in Denver...... We have computer access, but I am working, so not quite sure if I will have time to add any posts. You can always check back to look. If I can find a moment, I will try to put up some pictures from the displays.

Last Friday we had a demonstrator meeting here. I can not tell you how much I enjoy the company of these ladies. Not only can they stamp - but they can cook and we stamped and ate, a truly wonderful way to spend your afternoon!
I will be posting some of the designs by the other gals, first these are by Theresa. Her stamping designs rock! These all feature this year's punch box - which will have a special with it in August - be looking for that!
