Hey there! Oh my! Stampin' Up! really knows how to spoil their demonstrators! Thank you Stampin' Up! and my stampin' customer friends for making it possible for me to enjoy this retreat!
Thursday, September 18th was all about relaxing and being spoiled rotten by Stampin' Up!
I spent much of my day in the Gathering Place, relaxing and visiting with friends!
Stampin' Up! decorated the Gathering Place to reflect the "Home for the Holidays" theme!
This is my friend Derek Christiansen. Derek & I go way back to the first Stampin' Up! Regional I ever attended. Derek & I have a special bond because he interviewed me on stage at the Kansas City Regional. It was his and my first appearance on stage for Stampin' Up! Derek is now runs all of the events for Stampin' Up!, but he always has time to chat with old friends!
Besides offering a vast array of yumminess for our tummies, each jar was beautifully decorated with adorable tags to inspire our creativity!
Pretty much all the decor was accented with products from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog! BTW: we get to keep the mug! yay!
The highlight of this day, of course, is the Business Share and Swap!
Stampin' Up! CEO and Co-Founder, Shelli Gardner, greeted us, then it was on to the Share and the Swap, all while wearing our jammies!
Here's all 113 of the swaps I created with the Bright & Beautiful stamp set and Star framelit dies:
Here are swaps I received in return:
You will be getting to see these up-close in the next few weeks of Sunday Swap Days!
That's all for now! I will be sharing more Founder's Circle fun over the next few days, but be sure to come back tomorrow for Sunday Swap Day!
Until then, have a Stampingrox! day!
