Convention Day 1

Yesterday was officially Day 1 of convention.  We had the entire day free to do what we wanted before we gathered together for our opening session in the evening.  This is what it looks like when 6000 crazy stampers gather together.

We had the opportunity to  participate in trying to break the Guinness World Record for the most greeting cards to be mailed from one location at one time.

This is the Convention Bag we all got this year.  So far, in addition to the bags, we all got 4 free stamp sets and some other lucky winners got great gifts from Prize Patrol.  I can’t wait to see what they have in store for us tomorrow.



Ready for Convnetion

Yay, I’m in Salt Lake and ready for the Stampin’ Up! Convention.  I planned to post a couple photos, but right now I’m dealing with some technical difficulty, that would be the fact that I brought the wrong cord for my camera, so I can’t get photos off my camera.  I will have to revert to my phone camera because I have the right cord for that.
Anyway, back to talk about convention.  I’m here with my sister and partner in crime, Peggy Murwin and her daughter, my niece, Katie Campbell.  Today will mostly be a day of whatever we want because the official festivities don’t start until tonight.  We have general session followed by our opening social.  We are attempting to set a Guinness World Record at the event for the most greeting cards sent at one time from one location.  
Check back tomorrow for more about convention.
