So, in case you have been wondering where I have been, Tony and I just got home from Alaska!
There are so many of you to thank for your part in getting us on this trip - every product sale for me or one of my team members that helped to earn points towards the Stampin' Up! Cruise, everyone who joined my wider team over the past couple of years enabling me and my team members to advance in title, every card sale at Chirnside (because that got me coffee!!).
Here are just a couple of fun photos from the first day of the cruise (Friday 20th July) which if you follow me on Facebook you may have seen some of them already, and over the next few days I will post some more of the trip and also the Swap cards I made (lots of step by step photos) and then we will take a look at the swaps I received back from some of the top demonstrators in the world.
Stampin' Up! booked out the conference room on the boat for the whole week and hosted "Stampers Base Camp" in there. A hospitality room where we could come and catch up with other demonstrators and the SU staff and eat candy by the ton and spin the wheel each day for little gifts like rolls of ribbon and packets of Designer Series Paper.
Friday night pillow gift - a lovely warm jacket - perfect for an Alaskan Cruise and a gorgeous new snow swirl themed embossing folder.
Did I mention the candy?? Oh!!!!
So our first day getting to know our way around the ship - Royal Caribbean Explorer of the Seas - and catching up with fellow demonstrators and their families was a lot of fun!
I'll be back with our Saturday at Sea to share in the excitement of the general session and what we did on the ship on Saturday.
See you soon! xx
