Convention Day Four

This is the last day of Convention. I am so sad it is ending!! It has been so much fun, and we have been sooooo busy! This morning we had a keynote speaker, Belinda Ellsworth. She gave a very entertaining talk, which is hard for more than 2 hours. We received great business tips and advice.

We were sitting front and center, so we got a close up picture of Shelli.

I took more pictures of the boards and samples at lunch, and then participated in the "Dreamy" 3D swap - got lots of more advanced 3D items back. Can't wait to show and tell! Post lunch was a couple more stamping demonstrations on the main stage, and then the finalists for the SU commerical contest. These were very entertaining. Now, I know you will not be surprised to hear that the winner was Linda Heller, from Where the Rubber Meets the Road blog. You will remember her husband in the "man card" video. She posted the video (actually Matt did) here.

Finally, they had a game show called Demo Duel, like the Family Feud, with demos answering questions about products and the catalog. It was fun!

SU announced a hostess special starting in September for workshops over $250, and they announced dates and locations for Leadership Conference and Convention next year.

So, let's bring on some pics of samples...

Here is a scrapbook page submitted by Understand Blue Lydia for the display boards.

A sample card using a new stamp set I preordered out of the Holiday mini.

And lots of samples of the Simple Adorned Charm and chain from the Holiday mini, to give you lots of examples of how the stamped and embellished images can be swapped out easily.

These first 3 pictures are samples that Shelli made.

And dinner with my 2 roomies (on the left) and my new friends through SCS. Well, that's a wrap. Time for some mountain biking tomorrow and a little R&R. Thanks for stopping by!
