8 pounds of stamps! The first clue that things went well at the Stampin' Up! Convention was when the mail lady dropped off this 8 pound box of stamps!  That's what Ann sent home to avoid extra luggage fees.

Even Karen put some of Ann's stuff in her luggage to get the last 5 pounds off!

I hope I put all the stamps back in right so that Ann won't notice.

Do you see that white watch in the middle with the cool Early Espresso Box?  That's what they give the top 5 Demonstrators who helped their team improve their Stampin' Up! career.  (She was #3 in that)

Ann's been back a few days now.  While pretending to help unpack, I found this book that contains all her secrets.  It was a special book made for her by her friend and fellow Advisory Board Member, Jan. 


Isn't it cool?  Look close & you'll see the hanging A on it.  Jan did such a fine job on it.  She even put a personal inscription on it – but there's only so many secrets I can tell & not sleep with one eye open.

Ann didn't want me to tell you, but I think it's my duty to brag on her just a little.  Maybe then, she'll give me a raise.  Ya think?  I'll make the pictures puppy sized so that she might not notice I posted them.  Don't you tell her either!  You can see any of them up close by clicking on them to see them full size.  Thanks to Meg & Patty for sharing their pictures with me because Ann only took one picture of herself & we shared that one in this post.


That's Ann in the middle walking across stage with friends Kim & Dawn for their Milestone Awards.



Lots of them got together after the Flower Power party.  Here she is with her friend Catherine.


Ann was announced as #4 Demonstrator of the Year.  Then they announced #3.  When they announced #2, that meant that our friend Kimberly was #1.  Ann felt she should point that out.


Ann & Cecil are going to start shopping for a new roof to keep me warm this winter.

Thank you all for your support.  And congratulations to our team of 24/7 Stampers because they're part of how this all came together.  It's a team effort.  If you would like to join a winning team, please contact us!  We'd love to have you!  It's not every day that you get to have a good time every time you go to work.

You can find out more here, but today's the last day that former Stampin' Up! demonstrators can rejoin for just $35.  If you've been a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator & are ready to start your business again, you can get the offer details here.

We'll be back to the card making tomorrow.  I've been working on another video while Ann's been gone.  I can't wait to share it with you so come on back soon to see it & more fun Stampin' Up! ideas.
