Convention 2011 Highlights

Hi Stampers, 

With School in it’s almost 3rd full week all is getting a little calmer here. Sorta! : ) 

I did go on another trip to Henderson, Nevada for Stampin’ Up! Regionals! Oh WOW that was fun. I also had 2 of my Downline there. Theresa and Bonne! WOO HOO! Bonnie won a FREE stamp set!  Best thing – it was one she didn’t already have! LOL! 

That was last weekend – so prior I was working on swaps, getting my son back into the grove of school, trying to organize things here in my house and my Stamp Room (never ending).  But I wanted to share with you a Video I saw at Regionals. It is the Convention Highlights of 2011 I made it! LOL! You can see me at about 1:21 seconds.  Now I do have to warn you this years song is very catchy!  Enjoy!  Will be back to share some Recruit news that we got from Regionals! I know I'm lagging! Sorry!
