Back from Leadership

Wow!  What an amazing, whirlwind trip to Orlando!  This year's leadership conference was probably one of the best I've ever attended. 

It all started with the Manager's reception at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios.  We were told to expect light hor d'oeuvres and a dessert bar.  Now you tell me, who considers this "light" or an hor d'oeuvres?

Look, I've worked way too hard the past 6 months on losing weight and I wasn't about to blow it.  My trainer would be very proud that I only took a few bites of the food I really wanted to try……with the exception of the Cauldron cakes  (chocolate muffin dipped in chocolate and filled with chocolate). 

Butterbeer

I really enjoyed the Butterbeer!  YUM!  Do not miss this treat if you go to Universal.  Most people describe it as being similar to a frozen cream soda. 

But enough about the food, we were there to learn new things.  The sessions were filled with great stamping ideas…..way too many for me to post here.  I loved this idea of making a necklace from the bottle caps and the Collage Curios stamp set.  This project is one of the first on my list this week.  Leave me a comment if you would like to see a tutorial.

My roommate, Kathy was so kind to share her photos from leadership.  There are over 400 photos for you to view here

I've got more to tell you about, but you'll have to check back tomorrow.  I strongly suggest that you LIKE my Facebook page to stay current on all of the upcoming promotions, events and specials.  Stampin' Up told us several times to expect many new things this year and to expect them at a fast & furious pace.  I can update Facebook much quicker and I don't like to fill my blog with page after page of specials.  You're here to see stamping stuff, right?

Happy Stampin'

    I love the necklace and would really like a tutorial. These would surely make wonderful gifts to yourself and friends. Also can’t wait for the new monthly kit.

    I’ve put together a couple of the bottle cap necklaces and just trying to figure out the “best way” before I put out the tutorial. Hopefully, I’ll have a video up by Friday, so stay tuned!
