We Have A Winner!

I feel like I am way behind posting photos of my fabulous Founder's Circle trip, but I had to get caught up a little before I could play.

Thank you to everyone who placed an order for the brand new Stampin' Up! Simply Scored tool this weekend! You each will be receiving a free pack of place markers for it.

Ok, without further ado...we have a wiener! No, just kidding, we have a two WINNERS!!!!!!!

Deborah Smith of Newport, MI

All packaged up and ready to mail.

I made you each a card using the Simply Scored tool. You can find the video HERE.
Thank YOU!!

Now, onto a few of photos from my trip...

Founder's Circle is a retreat that Stampin' Up! honors each of their top 100 demonstrators and Rising Stars with...only I call it a treat because a retreat implies resting and I didn't do any of that! It was at the Courtyard Marriott in St. George, Utah. They took over the whole hotel and only SU! demonstrators and staff were there. I had so much fun, but the BEST part was having a room all by myself! Delightful!!

This year's theme was a Tea Party and all the decorations and details followed the theme. I have to tell you, their attention to detail is beyond fantastic. Every single little, itty bitty thing was in line with the theme. Laura, Selma, Kellee Sue, Angie and Kellie - it was incredible ladies! You are superstars at what you do! Thank you!

Walking in to the dinner that first night just took your breath away. Everything was soft and lavender (Wisteria Wonder, Jennifer!)with gorgeous linens and fresh roses at each place setting. The backs of every chair were even decorated!

We were assigned to a group and if you found all of the members of your group before dinner, you got a prize. My assigned group was called the Cornish Splits. There were the White Gloves, Lace Doilies, all kinds of fun names.

Everyone got to take their china tea cup home with them. I was so worried it was going to break on the plane, but it didn't cuz I wrapped it in my jammies!

The Cornish Splits back row - Meg Wheeler, Tami White, Kay Smith & Jackie Bolhius

Seated - me, Heather Summers & Tamye Dunbar

For those of you that are not familiar with SU!, that is Shelli Gardner co founder of SU! and her 2 daughters...and why are you not familiar with Stampin' Up!?? Have I taught you nothing??
