With Gratitude and a Happy Heart

There is one thing I know with absolute certainty. I have been so immensely blessed throughout my Stampin' Up! journey.  How does one measure success?  For me it's through the friendships, fun, creativity, giggles and belly laughs that surround me every time I pick up one of my rubber stamps and stamp in your company.  This experience has changed me forever.  I have met women who have become my dearest and most cherished friends, I have learned to lead my absolutely incredible team of demonstrators.  I have become a better person.
How can I possibly express my gratitude to those who have helped me achieve a dream I never thought possible?  Saying thank you hardly seems enough.  I want you to know that on Friday night, when I was named one of Canada's top 20 demonstrators, I wanted and needed to hug each and every one of you for the difference you have made in my life, for the creative passion we share and for the support you have offered in both my business and personal life.
My team is incredible and I owe so much of this award to you.  You are a group of magnificently talented women and I am humbled in your presence.  I thank you for choosing me as your upline.  I am grateful for your hard work, dedication and patience.  You are all fantastic and I cherish you beyond words.
My heart is so happy.  I am overflowing with gratitude.  For helping me earn Founder's Circle, from the depths of my heart...thank you, thank you, thank you.
Here are some pictures of Friday's Award Night...

My stampin' bestie and I danced the night away at the Awards night after-party to 80s cover band The Spazmatics.  It was the perfect end to a dream night.  Thank you Gail for being a super roomie, the most fantabulous friend and of course my rock this entire trip.  I have had so much fun with you.
And, with that, I sign off with gratitude and a wonderfully happy heart. See you all soon :)

Convention 2013 Day 2

Yesterday was a day all about recognition, stamping presentations, demonstrations, swapping, make n takes, fun and laughter.  Here are some photos snapped throughout the day...Enjoy!
Swapping cards with our fellow demonstrators!  Gail created 300 swap cards and I made 225.
 Shelli took some time to recognize demonstrators for success in several different categories.
Stampin' Up!'s Stampin' Start Program rewards new demonstrators with product and cash bonuses for performance excellence in their first six months.  JoAnn met both the sales requirement as well as promoting to Consultant within those first six months.  Very few demonstrators achieve this goal.  Congratulations, JoAnn!

So proud of my incredible downline!

We saw 25 projects demonstrated in record time...Here are some of my favourite WOWs of the morning...

Because of your generosity, love of creativity and support of my SU business, I earned the Grand Vacation which will take me on a Western Caribbean Cruise in May 2014.  I remain ever so grateful that you helped me achieve this goal.  Denise and Jamilla also earned the cruise!!

Prize Patrol is one of the most fun parts of any Stampin' Up! event.  With the music blasting, demonstrators jumping up and down and  dancing in the aisles, one can't help feel the rush of excitement. Many, many new and exciting projects were announced at #Convention2013 and I am thrilled to have won one of them! My wristband colour was called....  Wahoooooo! I won the new Undefined Stamp Carving Set, Washi Tape and Note Cards and Envelopes.  Love it!!!

Out for lunch...
