Convention Rocks! FMS146







Stampin' Up!'s Convention this past week was terrific! Hanging out with all of those wonderful stampers who live inside my computer was wonderful!  This card is headed to Beth Klaumann who won The Ultimate Stamping Experience on the first night of convention.  




And what does this have to do with me you might ask?  Beth got to ask a few friends to join her for the adventure - and I was lucky enough to be included!




A limo picked us up at the Convention Center and whisked us away for a private tour of SU! headquarters in Riverton. 




We even got up close and personal on the pick line in the amazingly spotless warehouse.  That's my good friend Dawn Tidd learning how to pack boxes!






The next day we arrived early at the Convention Center for a private backstage tour and had a photo taken with Shelli (which I don't have a copy of yet) and got to stand center stage.

We were also given reserved seats waaaaaaay down front for each general session.  Wow it truly was the Ultimate Stamping Experience! Many thanks to all of the wonderful SU! employees who made it all so special!



I used the sets You Rock and Chalk Lines to create this week's card based on Amy's wonderful sketch.

The ultimate convention experience for the ultimate stamper -- seems so appropriate! Love how you've used that cute rocking chair with the sketch, and the pretty flowers are the icing on the cake. I'm SO glad I got to meet you in person in SLC!
