Closing Ceremonies

In true Stampin' Up! style, closing ceremonies was fabulous! Man, don't ever book your plane ticket to leave even one minute early!
This year it was especially exciting because my very own downline and BFF had such a bang up convention! She participated in Recruit Crew this year, got 3 recruits, got to have breakfast with Shelli AND won a cruise to Alaska!!!!!!! Yes, the Stampin' Up! cruise to Alaska that the rest of us work our butts off to earn! That lucky dog! Everyone with at least one recruit was entered into a drawing for the cruise, they gave away 10 of them and Kim was a winner!!! I'm so proud of her, proud of her hard work and her success! I'm super proud of all my downline but it was especially fun to share in her glory there at convention!
Inking Everything...I hope you can ALL make it next year!!!

Here she is on stage receiving her tickets for two to Alaska from Shelli!

Sharing a few celebration tears! Notice she isn't letting go of that envelope for anything!!

Every year I say I am going to go to the top of the escalator and get a picture of the crowd. Here is a little bit of it, a lot of people were already inside. Maybe next year I'll get a really impressive picture...cuz it is a pretty impressive site to see!!

Right before convention closed, the confetti canons went off and confetti started falling from the sky. The crowd went wild because it could only mean ONE thing...FREE STUFF!!!! Here come the prize patrol out of the wood work with FREE products for everyone!

We all got a package of Deck the Halls Designer Series Paper, Peaceful Seasons stamp set, a Cherry Cobbler Pad and a Silver Glass Stampin' Glitter! Thank you Stampin' Up! !! From left to right are Natasha, Jenn and Kim.
Love the floor! Everyone was taking home hand fulls to put in their scrapbooks!!

Another wonderful convention! Imagine how cool it would be if you could ALL experience the excitement!


  1. Sounds like you had a FABULOUS time Becky. My hope is next year - I'll be that straight lady from Arizona who comes up and taps you on the shoulder and says "Hi Becky, I'm Kadie from Arizona and I LOVE YOUR BLOG"(like you've never heard that before-minus the Kadie from Arizona).....I can't wait to go to my first convention AND to meet you. That would be two SU dream come true.....(SOME DAY). Until I attend that waiting for that tap on the shoulder (from me!). Thanks for your amazing detail of this years convention - Looks like EVERYONE had a ball. Thanmks for sharing!

  2. You did have fabulous time, Becky.... I wish I were there, feeling the euphoria. Thanks for uploading all the photos and the storied behind each photo. My day has been cheerful reading all those things and makes me inspired.. All the best, Becky.

  3. Becky I was there and felt the excitement the only downside was that I wasn't able to meet up with you and finally meet you in person...Maybe next year??? Love your pictures...made me relive it. Unfortunately my camera broke awhile ago and wasn't able to replace it as yet...Maybe I'll get it for my birthday on 9/4!!! Keep your fingers crossed.

  4. I am so bummed that I did not get to meet you at the conventiion. I was there and had a blast!!!!!
    maybe next year!!!!! GREAT PICS

  5. Hey honey, I love this picture and you can see the excitement and tears in Kim's eyes. I screamed so loud when they showed her name on the screen.
    I am so glad she did not pass out from shock on stage.
    Don't worry my friend, I will keep track of your BFF on the cruise.
    Love ya,

  6. Becky,
