I AM …. HERE

Helloooooooooooooooooooooooooo, Oh my Goodness I bet you’ve been wondering where I was? Suffice to say I am back with tons to share, but let’s just start with a fabulous weekend spent in wonderful Mainz Germany at our Stampin’Up! European Annual Convention. It was the most fabulous Convention ever, nearly 850 demonstrators from 3 countries got together to celebrate, share ideas, inspire and get inspired. It was truly special and I loved catching up with my fabulous team members, make new friends and catch up with old ones.

The theme this year was I AM, and here I am in front of the trendy chalkboard art display.

And no rope has been established since 2007 :) it actually read Europe and yes it was 2007 when SU opened up for business in Europe, amazing to think its been 5 years already I remember the day so clearly like it was only yesterday.

This year there were more members of my team attending than ever before and I really loved being there with them all.

We had winners within the group Dawn was lucky enough to win one of the Prize Patrols

We had flying goofs, this is the very effervescent Issy LOL

In short we had a jolly good time I haven’t laughed so hard in ages. And because there were so many of us there at no point did we manage to gather together in one place at the same time for a photo op but here’s a portion of the group

happy people_

At the back in the middle we have Dawn, Netty and Alison, at the front from left to right Beth, Vicky, Issy, Linda, myself, Lorraine, Jill, Val and Kim.

Being part of our team is fun for sure, we are all from different walks of life united by our passion for Stampin’Up! and I loved every minute spent in the company of these great ladies I just wish i could do it all over again next weekend. Unfortunately we will all have to wait another year but the good news is the location for 2013 Convention is in…
