Just got in 1 hour ago. Had to say hello and share just a tiny handful of my 400+ photos. The first night, just 2 hours after we arrived, we had the Stampin' Up! Welcome Reception. Who came up to me to chat very shortly after I got there but our very own CEO Shelli Gardner. Here we are:

Once it got dark, one of the bar areas by the pool was lit up on its thatched roof with the SU logo!

Also once it was dark, the palm trees where we were were beautifully illuminated while we ate.

This is one of my favorite photos. No, it is not a postcard. This is what the resort really looked like. It was breathtaking in every aspect!

Finally, the next morning (Monday) we gathered for General Session where Shelli and other members of the corporate team talked stats, new products and showed some demonstrations. Within moments, I was reunited with the two demos that I wanted to see more than anyone: Robin Merriman (left) and Caroline LeBel (right).

There's a lot more to share and I'm going to tackle it piece by piece. Lots of photos of cards and projects shared by other demos. Stay tuned…..
