Day 1 - Stampin' Up! Convention

Well, day 1 is over and day 2 is just about to begin.  It always feels like such a long wait for the SU! Convention but once I arrive in Salt Lake City it is a whirlwind of activity.

Yesterday began with our bag pickup.  It's always so fun to see what kind of bag we will receive. This year it is a super cute cross body bag made from a felted material with 3 adorable buttons on the front.  Of course, the bag isn't empty - a new stamp set (can't show you it yet because it's from the new Holiday Catalogue, but can you see it sticking out of the bag?), a coiled notebook and pen and of course a pin.

There was a long line up to get into the General Session, but everyone was swapping (of course!) and it went surprisingly fast.
A few more pictures to show.
Diane and I are ready to enjoy the day!

The main stage is always decorated so beautifully and this year is no exception!  WOW!
 And finally at the end of the sessions, the place is quite deserted.  Only a few die hard swappers left!

But of course our day didn't end there.  It was Awards Night and our chance to celebrate all of the achievers over the year.  My Upline Alison Solven is one of the top 20 demonstrators in Canada.  She isn't at Convention this year so we cheered very loudly for her.  Congratulations to everyone!

Getting ready for Day 2!  Stay tuned for more pictures!  Hope to get to the display booths soon!

Happy Stamping!
