Recently I travelled to Melbourne for the annual Stampin' Up! Convention. This year was the first one I have attended, and it was the first time it had been a 3-day event, so it was really exciting! Also, Stampin' Up! is celebrating 5 years in Australia, so we were treated to some extra 'birthday' goodies!
I was also very lucky to win Prize Patrol in one of the general sessions!
Highlights of the trip included catching up with team members from across Australia, and attending my first Manager's Reception, which was stunning. I was also thoroughly spoiled by my roommates, Tina, Kim and Chrissie, and got to meet my lovely blog friend, Fi, in person for the first time!
Here is a picture of the gift I received at Manager's Reception:
And the invitation we received prior to leaving home:
Of course, one of the highlights for me was the food as well! Our team headed out to Lygon St in Carlton on the Friday night, for a lot of adventures and, (I'm not exaggerating) the BEST meal I've ever eaten! And, to make it even better, we were served a similar meal for the entree the next night, at the Awards Dinner.
Here is the entree:
And main course:
And dessert, complete with a chocolate '5' for Stampin' Up!'s five years in Australia!
One of the big announcements from Convention is that you no longer need an ABN to join Stampin' Up! You can find out all about the benefits of joining by clicking here to go to my demonstrator website - you can even join my team online as well! If you have any questions, I am happy to help you - I'd love to welcome you into my team.
I'll be back with more tomorrow,
