This poor blog has been pretty neglected long enough. No excuse except having fun. I’ve been stamping alot, gabbing until my throat hurts and hugging so many special people over the last 4 days. Founders Circle 2009 has been fabulous. It was relaxing and a get away that was much needed. I’ve always said the best part about this business and company has been the friendships formed and that is the truth. I love being able to spend this special time with exceptional women. I learn so much from each of them.
I was lucky enough to attend with my downline Christy. She lives around the corner from me in Colorado Springs. I really enjoyed watching her reaction to all the pampering that Stampin’ Up! does at Founders Circle. It really is amazing. We had a blast together!
We flew on a little bitty plane into St. George! I shivered in my boots just thinking about getting on that plane. I knew I had Christy to hold my hand even though she said she wouldn’t. <sigh> Here she is looking ready for flight!
The first day was really a day of seeing everyone arriving. It’s so fun to watch the door for the next round of friends to come in. Since we got there pretty early we had all day to graze on the good food and good candy! I think I had lunch about 4x. shhh…. don’t tell anyone!
Our first evening together we have a nice dinner with Shelli. This dinner is always spectacular. When we walked in the room you could hear all the Oooh’s and Ahhh’s. It was beautiful. The theme this year is Blooms, Gardens and Butterflies. Very appropiate. Here are some photos of the beautiful table decorations!
So many little details! I love it.
The next day was another day of relaxing and raiding the candy jars. I attempted to do my make n takes and was so proud of myself that I completed ONE project. Stop laughing! This is a big DEAL. It’s so rare I even get this much done. <smile>
That evening we got together as a big group and had dinner. It was a great night spent with friends!
I have so many more photos to share! I plan to share over the next few days. I’m currently in Salt Lake for the Advisory Board retreat. I have butterflies in my stomach! I am so excited to be here yet a little nervous!
Lastly, a project! I know this is long overdue!
This card uses the Wandering Words stamp set from the Holiday Mini. Super cute stamp set!
Many more photos tomorrow!
