Convention is open!

What a fun and busy day it was!!  We started our day on the very first bus to the Stampin' Up head office in Riverton, which is about half an hour south of Salt Lake City.  The tour was terrific...how I wish I could work in that beautiful facility!  Check it out...


On the bus


In the Atrium at head office


Lower level in the atrium...lovely water feature...very relaxing place to distress after a tough day at work!


Holiday display in the Legacy Room


Thanksgiving table setting, also in the Legacy Room.  These products are all from the upcoming Holiday Catalogue!

The Distribution Centre...just look at all those stamps!!

Then we were back to SLC for some more shopping and a relaxing lunch.  I had a swap that afternoon as well...photos of those later :)

Then it was time for the opening General Session.  What an atmosphere!  Here are some pics...


Panoramic shot of the entire hall.  6000 demonstrators and head office staff all partying it up...what an great experience!
Brian Pilling (one of the head office corporate types) leading a bunch of demos in a line dance!


The opening convention theme song was wonderfully performed and accompanieD by pyrotechnics!


Our convention bags were the first all-attendee give-away!  They are gorgeous!!  And filled with three stamp sets, make-n-take kits, catalogues, commemorative swag...such fun!  We also watched a demonstration by Pam Morgan who did 5 projects featuring this year's Making a Difference set:  Tag It, which we all got for free!  
Be fore she was done, Pam announced two prize patrols (didn't win either of those...but there's still lots of time!). And then Shelli announced another all-attendee giveaway...the Tags 4 You set from the new Holiday Catalogue...yippee!
The evening ended with the opening of the Gathering Place with a live band Karaoke, tons of displays a world record set for the most greeting cards sent from a single location and so much more.  I'll post more photos tomorrow...the crowds were so big it was difficult to get good pics.  See you then!
