It was such a pleasure to be sharing the weekend with so many very talented crafters from throughout Europe. This was my first Convention and I went with my Upline, Sharon Gronow and an American Demo friend, Hannah Wilkinson, who were first timers to Convention too …. Oh my word and what an array of Inspiration we had ahead of us.
Just look at some of these competition entries! Talk about amazing!!
We were presented with a Stampin’ Up! Convention Rucksack when we registered, full of lovely goodies … Not just one, but three gorgeous stamp sets!! ….. We then received several other Prize Draw giveaways of goodies from the up coming Seasonal Catalogue about to launch at the start of the New Year and oooo have they got some gorgeous goodies on offer to tempt you with!!
Friday night was presentation night, when the Top Demonstrators were awarded with various prizes for their achievements and I was astonished to hear just what some had achieved in such a short space of time. This company is most definitely the crafting company to work for and I feel honoured to be a part of it.
It was then time to party and have some fun of a different sort 🙂
It was once again, so lovely to meet some of the ever so helpful Stampin’ Up! Colleagues at our UK Office, but also to meet a few others from overseas and in particular the wonderful Bonnie Thurber, who just made me smile …. a lot !!! This event was a hit and clearly took a lot of planning and it was down to a great crew that we were able to enjoy it
Next year it’s being held in Brussels in October and I sincerely hope to be there. If you fancy joining me and want to know how you can go about it, then do get in contact and I’ll explain how.
