Stampin' Up! Convention 2009

The new tag line for the Stampin' Up! 2009 convention in Salt Lake City was Inspire. Create. Share.! And, it was fabulous! This was my 1st convention, after being an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator for 3 years. The excitement and energy was contageous! I had such a fabulous time with my downline, Sarah, and many, many new stampin friends! The 1st picture is some of the many convention attendees...there were many more in the line to momento mall. This is a picture of a "short line"! Momento Mall was a very popular place, because...

the main attraction there was our new little friend! Here I am with my Stampin' Up! Build-A-Bear! Check her out...she is wearing her own Stampin' Up! workshop apron, and has an exclusive Build-A-Bear stamp which says "Life without stamps...unbearable"!!! She will be joining me at upcoming workshops. And...a little suprise...Stampin' Up! has partnered with Build-A-Bear Workshops with a new product line. The new product line is being released in the Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini Catalog September 1st!!! Another exciting product line being released "very soon" is our new digital scrapbooking software, "My digital Studio"! More info coming soon!!!

This is the display board for one of the Artisian Award winners, Angie Tieman. Her work is absolutely amazing. I have admired her work for a long time, and was so happy to see her win this award for outstanding creativity!

And...check out this close up of that amazing cupcake...it is made from ribbon. WOW!!!

In the gathering place during lunch on Thursday, I saw a crowd surrounding one of the lunch tables. So, I had to see what was going on there. I knew it must be something great...and check this out! She was finishing up her swap cards. Isn't it the cutest card ever!!! The creater's name is Natasha Hein. Sure wish I was in her swap group!!!

This is one of the many, many displays at convention. I just love 3-D projects and there are so many fabulous ones in this picture!!!

What a fabulous time I had. I met some new friends, shared so much laughter, stories, and good times! It was a trip that I will never forget!!! Now, I need to figure out how to get away next year :) More pictures and great new product information coming soon!!!
