Finally a chance to catch up on my blog. I am having a super time. As you know a few weeks ago
I moved my studio to my basement and I love my new Stampin' Up! Studio. I love it so much that I
hated to leave it. However, I earned the Founder's Circle trip which is a huge honour.
This was my picture at convention with my new purse that each Founder's Circle recipient receives.
Even better, I left a few days early and Irv came with me so we could spend a few days in Las Vegas.
Now, I know I said that it was hard to leave my new studio behind but I still insisted on being at the
airport 3 hours before our flight. To be fair that is what it said on our itinerary. Irv said that we

It is amazing. We also went to see Penn and Teller. They do a magic trick. We saw them 10 years ago and loved it. They leave you saying, "How did they do that?" They are also really kind people and they come out after the show for photos, chatting and autographs. This is Irv in front of the

The hour flew by as I chatted to all the awesome Stampin' Up! demonstrators.
When we arrived I went straight to the Hospitality Suite.

from my cleaning lady.
Of course I love it.
I dumped out the candy on the bed to check out my loot.
We have the whole hotel to ourselves so we can actually walk around in our p.j.s
all day if we want.
Our name tags all have what group we are in and what bus we will be traveling in this week.
At the reception they served delicious lemonade in glasses we got to keep.
We were challenged to find the fellow ladies in our group.
This was mine.

What activity would you do if you knew you wouldn't fail?
Reveal a secret that noone else knows. (impossible for me as I tell Irv everything)

Introducing the York Beach Group
I am the only Canadian in this group.
Then we went off to dinner.
Again the decorations are beautiful. Look at how they wrapped our napkin.
All that was Wednesday. I will have to catch you up on Thursday tomorrow as I need to get
a few hours of sleep. It's 2am and I have to be up at 515am for another exciting day.
