Hello from the Beach!

Yes, I know, I'm supposed to be on vacation! BUT - I had to bring my laptop so I can place my 1st order tomorrow from the NEW Stampin' Up! Catalog! I can't wait - come on 2 pm mountain time!

Anyway, since I'm on the computer turning in a last minute order from the old catalog, I thought I'd post real quick. Actually, I downloaded a few photos before I left home, because I am going to have a few posts for you thru the week - yes, I know, I {heart} you too!

The beautiful card is one that I received from my SAM at convention! Brady was my right hand man last year and kept me straight on oh, so many things. A SAM is really a "service account manager" and is assigned to demonstrators who earn the incentive trip each year or are at a certain level of management within Stampin' Up! I'll post a picture of me with him tomorrow,ok?
Anyway, when I went to check in at the awards desk, Brady was actually the one to tell me that I had earned the Founder's Circle again this year! It was really a shock and I'm so glad he got to tell me! He had already prepared this cute, cute card for me ( I didn't ask if he stamped it himself!)

It uses lots of NEW stampin' supplies from the NEW catalog - Say it with Scallops Stamp Set (which is the Ronald McDonald house donation set this year), the NEW Scallop Square Punch, Riding Hood Red cardstock and Bashful Blue Designer Series Paper! Oh, and Chocolate Chip Narrow Grosgrain Ribbon is back too! I just love the card and especially the sweet words inside it! Thanks Brady!

The photograph I'm sharing today is actually from Awards Night at Convention. Yes, that's me, making a lame attempt to do the hula and keep up with my friends, Danelle on my left and Becky on my right. We were doing our group "walk" for earning the incentive trip to Hawaii and Danelle turns to me and says, "Ok, lets get up there and hula. I'll go left, Becky, you go right and Robin, just go outward." Well, never one to back down from something completely fun and silly looking, I did just that and I'm quite sure that when we actually go to Hawaii next March, I won't be allowed near any legitimate hula schools!

But, all was not lost, we were so silly looking that we made the convention highlights video that Stampin' Up! showed on the last day. So fun!

Til next time,
