I am now back home from my 3rd Stampin' Up European Convention. As I told you in my previous post, this year's Convention venue was Disneyland, Paris and I have to say I am sooooo glad I went. I have never been to Disneyland and it was a lovely experience, well worth a visit. I will hopefully return there on a family trip in the future
Stampin' Up Convention is always an amazing experience and this year was made even more magical for me as I achieved placement in the top 25 of demonstrators from the UK. I had absolutely no idea that I was going to win an award until I collected my Convention bag at registration and received my Demonstrator of the Year pin which is awarded to all 25 demonstrators in the category. I was placed at no 20 and couldn't be more thrilled. As my regular ladies and my downline know this is really a massive achievement for me personally.
I don't think I came back down to earth thoughout our whole 4 days in Paris and Stampin' Up have told us about so many new things coming our way in 2011/2012 that I am still on cloud nine. I am going to be working on lots of new ideas over the coming months and cannot wait to share it all with you.
Right now would be a perfect time to join me and my team in this amazing Stampin' Up adventure. Sign up right now as a Stampin' Up demonstrator and learn all about the new and exciting things coming to our European markets ahead of everyone else. If you are interested please contact me for a no obligation chat.
I will leave you with a picture of the stage showing the theme of this year's event, one I hope I can be part of as I continue to "GROW" my little team.

Just a quickie post today to say I am on my way to this year's Stampin' Up! Convention. I am off to my lovely uplines today and then we fly to Disneyland tomorrow. Swaps are all done, roomie gifts completed and bags all packed.
Looking forward to this annual gathering of craft mad Stampin' Up demonstrators from Germany, France and UK. I will be back with lots of pictures next week.
For now here are piccies of my roomie gifts

I cannot believe it is yet again over 2 weeks since I last posted. I have the best intentions in the world for updating my blog regularly but life seems to be making a habit of getting in the way lately and I don't manage to get on here as often as I would like. The card and gift bag that I am sharing with you today are from this week's Everything Eleanor class. Two of my ladies attended the class on Monday evening and hopefully another 6 ladies will be joining me tomorrow to make theirs. My card sample is stamped using Soft Suede ink but my class ladies will be gold embossing the swirls so the cards will be even more elegant looking.
This will be my last Thursday class for a fortnight as I will be away next week at our annual Stampin' Up Convention. This will be my 3rd Convention and the venue this year is Disneyland, Paris. I have always wanted to go to Disneyland and cannot believe that I will be there in just over a weeks time. I will travel to my lovely upline's next Wednesday and then onto Paris on Thursday to meet with others in our team and in time for Convention commencing on Friday morning bright and early. As we are flying I have had to limit the number of swaps due to baggage allowances but I have made all of my general swaps and also some small roomie gifts for the other girls in our team. I just need to print my recipe sheets for my swaps and my nephew is helping me bag them all and then package the roomie gifts and I am done. (of course that is so long as I do not decide to make more general swaps as I do really enjoy the swapping element to our Stampin' Up events)
Anyway I hope you like this week's class as much as I enjoyed creating it. I have to say the Everything Eleanor stamp set was my ultimate first choice in the 2011-2012 new catalogue and I adore using it.
