11 June 2012 – Convention Wrap up!

Well it’s been a week since Convention in Canberra finished.  I had an amazing time with catching up with old SU friends and meeting new ones!

My friend and downline, Margaret, and her husband Ray came down with me as well.  It was great to share convention with Margaret.  As always, the generosity of Stampin’ Up! blows me away.  We received a great convention bag, free stamp sets, brilliant ideas and listened to excellent speakers.  There were lots of exciting announcements, including the venue for next year’s convention.  It’s BRISBANE!!!  I’m so glad it’s in my home state!!  I don’t need to fly and I’ll know how cold it’s going to be.  And better yet, there’s no restriction for luggage!!

Here are some photos of Convention.  Check out my facebook page for more.
