Morning Stampers!! I have wanted to update you on my LEADERSHIP experience for the alst few days, but came home and got STRAIGHT to work!!  So here it is in a nut shell…
First, we got to hang out (Erica Cerwin, Krista Jensen) and sight see… of course Erica and I are locals but we took Krista all over and gave her a taste of SA!!

We went to the Alamo, looking for Pee-Wee’s Bike in the basement.  I know Frances is hiding somewhere around here…

We got to enjoy some good music and time with crazy friends, I think this was the only time we looked demure and mature.  Not my natural state- FO SHO!!!
We got to meet up with old HSS Design Team friends. From front to back (RoseMarie, Krista, Erica, Me, and Minnie Cieslak) We had such a great time with everyone!!
Of course this is how we spent much of our time!  Making funny faces and freezing them in time with a snap shot!  Getting ready for PRIZE PATROL to announce the winning wrist band… who will it be??
More crazy pictures.  We got these shirts from the YOU CREW, the staff wore these during the HAPPY DANCE flash mob on main stage- SERIOUSLY AWESOME!!! They danced to PARTY ROCK, SOOOO COOOL!  The whole time they danced Erica was saying, “MAN, I want one of those shirts!!” So when I saw the staff the next morning waiting with us outside the elevator, I opened my BIG mouth and asked.  WHOOOHOOO!! I got one for all of us!!
Oh, and we snuck back stage to take these pics- we had a case of the giggles so these we WAY funnier in person.  Somewhat inappropriate too, but what happens at Leadership, stays at Leadership. 😉
We are eperiencing Leadership “MY WAY” which was the theme for this year.
Then it was time for PRIZES!!! We LUV us some FREE STUFF!!!
I was a winning wrist band winner!!! (check the huge bruise on my elbow… just had my blood taken the day before, and clearly the guy was high as a kite while doing it… seriously painful!)
Stamp set, and maze embellishments- can’t beat that with a stick!!
MORE PRIZES, but this time for being seriously creative!  Erica won for her Gnome page- SOOOO creative.  Check her out at Pink Buckaroo Designs!!
Krista won for this adorable card, which she thought didnt stand a chance- SO WRONG girl!  I LOVED IT!!
Here is what they won- it is the Twitter Patted Suite. Paper, buttons and pleated ribbon- OH MY!
I had SUCH a great time with my gals this year at LEADERSHIP, I can’t wait for Convention- more days and I am sure we can get FUNNIER as well!  If you would like to take part in AWESOME events like this contact me today to get signed up as a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator- You’ll be glad you did!

  2. As usual, you are cracking me up!!! It’s good to see that you have downline there in SA, do you have upline? AS it turns out, a ton of my upper upline is there!!! Haven’t made a trip yet, but plan to eventually! Hopefully I’ll see you at Convention!!


  3. I just keep reliving this past week over and over again. I love all of your stories about it. And glad that you kept the embarrassing ones on the DL!! I had so much fun……I wish we didn’t live so far from each other!! Can’t wait for the next big event!! Love ya girls!!!!

  4. “There’s no basement in the Alamo, Fraaaannnciis!” LOL that movie is so silly! You crack me up Erin with your sassa-frass self! :) Look at y’all hauling in the prizes, too. Whoop whoop!
