Last Day of Leadership

Table was beautiful as was the dessert - you really have to attend Leadership to see how amazing it really is!

Cards made with Swallowtail - only $13.95 in the Occasions Mini and so simple to create beautiful cards quickly.  This is a "must have stamp"!

Friday at Leadership

These cards are simply elegant - they would make a great make and take cards.

Lunch was fabulous.  In fact, we were still a little full when it was time for dinner so we shared appetizers.  I had the asparagus fries - YUMMY!
Renee had asked me to make her a dress - here we are wearing our dresses.

Two Beautiful Swaps

 Great Masculine card!!!!!!!
Amazing use of new butterfly stamp!

Welcome to the Wizardy World of Harry Potter!

I was so excited when I received my invitation to Manager's Reception this year.  It included a ticket for the Hogwarts Express to go to Universal Studio's World of Harry Potter.

Here we are waiting for the bus to take us for our exciting night.

Stampin' Up! reserved the entire Harry Potter section of Universal Studios just for Managers and above.  Because it was dark, my point & shoot camera didn't do as well as I would have liked, but I do have a few photos to share.  The first thing we did was go through the castle to go on the most visually amazing ride I've ever been on.  None of my castle photos turned out because of the light.

We did enjoy butterbeer - the foamy part on top really tasted like butter!
They had sooooo much food out for us to enjoy - fish & chips, giant turkey legs, pasta, shepard's pie, corn on the cob, carved roast beef on Kaiser rolls, cheeses, and much more.  I ate 3 plates of food then went for the most amazing dessert bar.  Here are chocolate caldrons, chocolate trifle, pumpkin tarts, and apple pie.  YUMMY!!!
After all of the food, we had to visit Honey Duke's to see what chocolate frogs really are and if there really are such things as every flavor beans.  They told us that there really are ear wax and soap flavored beans in the package.
We visited the wand shop and watched how a wand selects it's owner - the show was incredibly fun to watch!

Thanks Stampin' Up! for a once in a lifetime experience!!!

Check-In Day

We checked in today and visited the gathering place to learn about new products and get lots of ideas to share with our customers and teams.  Here are a couple of my favorite pictures from the displays.

I left my swaps at the hotel, so I didn't get to swap today.  I did enjoy looking at the swaps Missy got at her meeting this morning.  Unfortunately, I didn't get to look at the backs so I don't know whose work this is.
I had talked myself out of the whale set until I saw this card.  The colors and design are perfect!!!

I also loved this horse card - it is a great masculine card!!!
