Of course my favourite Demonstration was by my wonderful friend and ever-fabulous stamper Teneale (yes I am a little bit biased!). She showed us some awesome tricks with ribbon, because we all know she is the Queen of Bows. She did an amazing job, and that alone was worth the trip to Melbourne!
I'm sorry to say that I didn't take a single photo this year. I didn't take my camera and then I dropped my phone in the toilet (yes, really!) on the first day. It's now working again, thankfully, but when Stampin' Up! announced that we will be able to download the photos for free this year I think I cheered the loudest!
We had a bright orange Convention bag this year. It was very easy to spot Stampin' Uppers on the streets of Melbourne! Our Convention bag contained 2 brand-new stamp sets that will be in our September Catalogue. We celebrated 5 years in the South Pacific and Shelli had a surprise for us on the last day - an extra new set for everyone, plus a Simply Sent Kit! We were totally spoilt! I also came home with 5 other new stamp sets because I won some awards, which was really exciting :o)
I was third in Australia this year, which totally blew me away. There's no way I would have even been up there at all if not for the support of so many lovely friends, customers and team members. So, thank you all so so much.
Now it's back to earth... I have some classes to prepare for as well as a baby shower to get ready for!
