Leadership highlights - day 3

It's a wrap. Today we finished our 2014 Stampin' Up! Leadership conference. What an amazing experience we have had in Houston over the last three days. I have more photos to share and will get another blog post up when I'm home in Edmonton.

This morning was a late start with general session at 10:30am. What a refreshing schedule change! During this session we watched Stampin' Up staff play a Stampin' game show! It was so funny and down right Stampin' nerdy! I loved it! An all attendee give away gave us a free sneak peek stamp set from the new catalogue that will be released in June! 

After lunch we had a closing session that did not disappoint!! It started with Pam Morgan telling us that Convention will be in Salt Lake on July 17-19, 2014! It will be called "Inspire. Create. Share." The city of Salt Lake is always so excited to host us that they sent us salt water taffy!

A major announcement followed. Are you sitting down!?!?!?! Anyone who signs up to join my team from July 1, 2013 until registration closes for convention in July of 2014 will get their conference registration FREE!! Yes, free!! It is so fun and inspiring to attend this event! You just have to come with me!

Last, Shelli Gardner stamped on stage and shared some great projects and techniques. The final treat was another all attendee give away! I have so many stamp sets to bring home!!!! 

To wrap up the day we went with great friends for dinner. We sat for hours eating, talking, laughing and celebrating. It's always hard to say good-bye to everyone. But we know we will be together again in July! 

I can say this was my favorite trip so far! We have cried, laughed until we cried, stamped, shared and relaxed! It was perfect. Thank-you to Stampin' Up! for loving us so much and spoiling us. We are so lucky to have each other and to work for a company like this. Kelly Olson (my roomie and Stampin' bestie) said it best tonight ... "I wish the real world was like Stampin' Up!".

I am so excited to travel home tomorrow to hug my husband and my kids. I facetimed them tonight and my heart ached to kiss them all. I always get home sick on the last day!! 

Goodnight Houston!! Have a creative day friends!!
