I have just returned from the annual Stampin' Up! convention and boy was it a fantastic experience. The journey started last Wednesday evening when I stayed at a fellow demonstrators home, Zoe who was kind enough to drive us to Disneyland in Paris. We left early Thursday morning and picked up another 2 demos before heading for the tunnel. We arrived at the hotel at 7pm and thats when the fun began.
Friday started with a nice breakfast at the hotel and then off we headed to convention. On arriving we were presented with a gorgeous black embroidered bag (which I will show you later), free stamp sets and the itinerary for the event. We were then allowed to go into Mamento Mall where we were able to purchase exclusive items for demo's that attend convention. It was like christmas had come early... I spent ooodles and ooodles but don't tell the hubby : -) After a day of inspiring classes and talks we had the awards dinner. This recognised the demonstrators who had acheived certain milestones in their career, unfortunately I wasn't one of them but my upliner, Victoria, was. Congratulations Victoria.
Saturday saw another day of inpiration and demonstrations that boosted everyone's enthusiasm in the room. It was so uplifting to see lots of European demos together and the swaps were gorgeous. Saturday evening was our time so we spent it roaming round Disney Village and of course I just had to buy something for my gorgeous little grandson, so I got him a Mickey Mouse and its only just a little bit smaller than him...lol We arrived home safely Sunday evening and it was sooooo good to be home.
