For the last day of convention - I had to be sure to use my daughter's string cheese cooler. A few days before I left for SLC, my hubby and daughter were at the grocery store. There happened to be a Sargento lady there, handing out samples. She also gave my daughter this adorable little cooler. My girly insisted that I bring it with me to SLC, because it looks similar to some of the other bags I have. It worked! I ate my cheese about halfway through the day, and it was still cool.
Saturday also saw most of my friends winning prize patrols! Yay!!
Jean won the Halloween Bash set from the holiday catalog - AND a punch!
Candee and Jacque won the Christmas Messages stamp set!
They ended general session with another all attendee giveaway! We were gifted the Real Red Goodie Gear Simply Created Kit, and the Oh, Goodie! stamp set!
For lunch Stampin' Up! provided us with a delicious chicken sandwich!
We spent the afternoon in classes, learning new ideas for growing our businesses.
They closed out the convention with a last general session. The Heart of Stampin' Up! award was announced, as was the location of Leadership 2014. Leadership will be held in Houston, in January 2014. It was also announced that the Incentive Trip that we are all working towards for travel in 2015 will be to Hawaii. I know that for some people, that isn't very exciting. But for my family - it is super exciting, and hubby is totally on board to help my business grow this year! They ended the session with one last all attendee giveaway! Everyone received the Yippee-Skippee stamp set.
I love how Stampin' Up! goes all out for convention. They decorate the outside as nicely as they do the inside of the Salt Palace.
When the general session ended, a group of friends and I decided to treat ourselves to dinner. I had never been to a dinner like this before. It was so fun, and the food was amazing!
Look at all this free stuff I was able to bring home from SLC!
Sunday morning, my friends and I had one last breakfast together before we all headed off to the airport to travel home.
