Wicked Fun Designer Series Paper

I was so excited to have Jenny Watson from Mayfied Hts., OH join me this year on Founder's Retreat. Jenny is a member of my downline and placed #6 in the Nation as a Rising Star for Stampin' Up!.  I am so proud of her accomplishments.  Here is the swap card she did for Founder's.


Where does time go?

Gosh hard to believe it is almost October and time to think about Halloween cards.  This card was designed by Dawn Griffith from Pontiac, MI for our Founder's Retreat Card Swap.  It is always so hard to make 135 swaps for the Founder's Retreat  Swap, but it is by far the best swap ever.  I will be sharing cards from the swap over the next several weeks.


Vintage Stamping

The Vintage Look is all the craze right now and Jan McClurg captured the look in this card when she used the Petals-a-Plenty Embossing Folder with Old Olive & Cherry Cobbler and the Crochet Trim Chantilly.


SU! Founder's Circle Retreat

Thanks to my wonderful customers & downline, I just returned from my 9th Founder's Circle Retreat with Stampin' Up!  Every year Stampin' Up! honors the Top 135 demonstrators from the US & Canada for a 5-day Retreat.  It usually takes place in Southern Utah, my favorite place on earth.  For the last 4 years Kim Peck, a demonstrator from Illinois has planned a high adventure trip.  One year we white-water rafted, we have hiked the Narrows in Zion National Park, last year we repelled.  So when we earned Founder's this year Kim decided we needed to try Canyoneering.  OMG what a trip.  Here are some pictures, a word to the wise don't set around for three days before doing this trip.  Here is me going off the first repel.


Here is Lynsay Mahon from Canada


Sharon Armstrong from Texas

Here is our group Julie Salva, Georgia Giguere, Lynsay & Sharon again, April Roycroft, Me, Ronda Wade, Tamie Ackerson, Kim Peck, & Meg Loven.



This is a trip none of us will ever forget.  Thanks for the memories.
