Stampin' Up! Convention Manchester 2013 - Part 1

Hi Folks,

As I expected I was far too exhausted and busy yesterday sorting out my haul from convention and getting the house back in order - I still haven't had time to play with my new Stampin' Up! Goodies!!!!

This was my first convention and exceeded all my expectations - imagine nearly 1000 excited people, loads of freebies, fantastic company, amazing and inspirational talks and demonstrations. Not to mention a whole raft of sneak peeks! You are going to love all the goodies coming up in the next few months - just scrummy!

AND whilst we were at convention Stampin' Up! released their 'Carve your own' stamp kit - Undefined - in the UK.

So just to share a few piccies - I have so many!

Me and my convention 'Roomie' Lizy - fellow Pinkie and a fabulous companion! You can check out her Blog here

The CEO of Stampin' Up! Shelli Gardner was seriously injured in an accident recently , so her equally amazing daughter Sara Douglass took the helm for convention - she was amazing and did her Mum Proud!

The head of the Pinkies team, Michelle Last, not only did a business talk for everyone, she also won all the available accolades at awards night, making her the top performing demo in Europe! Respect! And a lovely lady to boot - I am so lucky to be part of her team! There were 85 Pinkies at convention. Here are just a few!

We were the largest team and the noisiest crowd - and the Pinkies are a fabulous, warm, welcoming and supportive group!

I spent most of convention with the 2 lovely ladies with me here, Lizy and Caroline (her blog is here

Last of all, here is my haul of freebies from Stampin' Up! I can't show you some as they are new products - but as you can see we were spoiled rotten!

Tomorrow I'll be sharing my favourite swap that I received. I would do a double post today... but don't want to spoil you!
