I'm heeerrrrreeeee!

In Salt Lake City, of the Stampin' Up! Convention!  Yippee!

After a full morning of flights and long security lines and waiting in airports, I was able to get checked into the hotel, get over to all the action at the Convention Center, picked up my Convention bag (very cool, btw), did some swapping, did some shopping at Memento Mall (O-M-G! My wallet is so empty), took pictures of some of the product displays, had a coke and a bag of chips, talked with some super nice demos, and have made it back to the hotel room to unload, and it is only 2:45 pm here!  I'm tired and Convention hasn't even started!

I did snap a few photos - here is the Convention bag - nice embroidery work on the outside, and nice green patterned fabric inside. Love it!

In the Product Display area, there was a huge display of all the In Colors, and one of the displays talked about how they choose them each year.  Isn't this amazing?  Lots of hard work goes into those decisions!

This fun card is on display in a huge wall display, with rows of this same card design, in various colors, more than 100, I think.  This stamp is one I suspect we will get at the end of Convention.  In our notebooks it mentions that if we get a sticker at each class we attend, on Saturday, they will give a special stamp to those who get 5 stickers!  Stampin' Up! treats us so well!  Notice the silver card holder too....those are in Memento Mall for sale!!! Okay, yes, maybe a couple made it into my shopping bag....who wants to know???

And finally, just to prove I am really here....I had my picture taken among the flowers!  Do you notice they are coneflowers?  From the Inspired by Nature set?  Which only happens to be my favorite flower and stampset!  These flowers are everywhere!  In case you haven't figured it out yet,  our theme this year is GROW!...

Well, gotta run.  Back to the Convention Center to try to hook up with my roommate, Kathy M.  I know, same first name, same last initial.  This could be confusing....more tomorrow.....
