We started our morning bright and early with a nice hot breakfast at the hotel and a quick jaunt over to the convention center to get in line for Momento Mall! The official opening of the mall was 9:00am. I was fortunate to earn an incentive to get in at 8:00am. But, we got over and in line before 7:00am. Man or man, was that ever a good idea! The lines got nuts but it was well worth the wait. The fun toys and great new product were just incredible. I was so excited to be able to get in, grab my goodies and get out before anyone in the general admittance was allowed in. I got LOTS of great goods but I don't want to spoil any surprises so I'll keep a little to myself for a while. Just know I had a lot of fun shopping!!
Mickey, you can't have it!!) The bag comes packed with materials, pins, pens, and FREE STAMPS! One of the free stamp sets this year is Just Believe, possibly my favorite new stamp set out of the new catalog. I can't wait to see what kinds of make-n-takes we'll be doing with this set that I'll be able to bring home and share with you!
Flower Power" a full blown 60's themed party. That was a real hoot. Great music. Lots of energy. I tried my hand/foot at Twister (and failed miserably), danced to amazing classics, and had an all around great time. When Stampin' Up! throws a party, they really throw a party! Games, face painting, prizes...Linda won a wonderful stamp set from the upcoming Holiday Mini Catalog! Nothing for me but I'm sure my time is coming! Oh, there were also a TON of great samples and incredible projects on display. I have over 150 photos that I need to weed through before I share them. I promise I'll post some of those goodies tomorrow!
I'm totally off to bed. Tomorrow is the first day of our general sessions and great classes. But before I go, I will say that if you're ever in Salt Lake City and have an opportunity to go see the Stampin' Up! campus, do it, but also stop at the Sno Shack. We got the best snow cones this side of the Mississippi! Thanks, Susan!!
Until tomorrow, Happy Stamping!
