Hello to you all – I’m back from convention in Canberra, and full of the joys of an amazing time away with other stampers, friends, and even a sister!   We had a blast, and were very spoilt once again this year.    Here is just SOME of the amazing things that I walked away with.  Some of the stamp sets were earnt, some won, and some were just gifts from Stampin’ Up!, because they really value & appreciate everything we do.  How cool!!!  


Some of the observant amongst you may notice the small expensive looking box at the bottom of this picture.   Well – that was a HUGE surprise for me.  You see, Stampin’ Up! decided to reward even further the top three demonstrators in three categories with a gorgeous…..











TIFFANY Pendant (or earrings, or bracelet).   WOWZA!!   I was stunned – totally shocked, when my name was called out for one of the recipients of this gorgeous gift in the Leadership category.  How very generous!   Of course, without a team to lead, I would not be able to earn such a reward, so to my wonderful team of women who work hard, play hard & shop even harder… THANK YOU.    I can’t express the feelings I have after our trip away, and certainly wish that my entire team could have come to experience this fabulous convention – maybe next year!  

If you would like to join my team, then I’ve got such a wonderful opportunity for you.   How does joining Stampin’ Up! for just $175.00 sound?   This will get you a scrapbooking starter kit, and the opportunity to excel in a business that works around YOU.  Or if you prefer, you may wish to purchase the starter kit for the minimum 20% discount and just order for yourself and a couple of friends.  Whichever way you want to join – I would be delighted to welcome you to our team.  We need all kinds of demonstrators, and you can be sure that I will give you the support to achieve your goals, whatever they may be.

I’ve got such a lot more to share with you, including my classes for this month and next, and my projects that I presented at convention (shaking in my chair, in front of 400ish women!) but I’d better fly and get some dinner happening before I get too carried away though!

Thanks for looking!

Hi Michelle

It was great to meet you on our flight from Canberra to Melbourne and congratulations once again on all your awards - you ended up with quite a haul.

Thank you for also being so gracious in letting me get a photo of your hair for my friend Steph, lol!

Look forward to catching up with you next year in Sydney
