Ok this is a long post...I just have so much to tell you!
You might want to grab your favourite drink and some chocolate :)

I have been meaning to update you on my trip to Toronto in April - when I was able to attend the OnStage Stampin' Up! Conference. I have finally started to put it into my scrapbook so I thought I would share some of my pages and photos from the day with you.

So first here are a few of the layouts/pocket pages I put together to document my trip/birthday getaway:

I used NEW Product for these pages and some of the NEW In Colours! 
Check out this video showing you a closer look at the new products featured in the 
new 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue (coming June 1st!):

 I can't wait for you to see it ...and you will have a chance at my ....

Ok now on to more from the weekend ...


This was my second time attending a Stampin' Up! event and I have to say they know how to spoil us demonstrators! First of all I was beyond thrilled to have earned my ticket for free via points - you earn these points via purchases and accomplishments throughout the year. And second the event fell on my birthday weekend so Fred and I extended the trip and enjoyed the city the whole weekend!

Fred dropped me off Saturday morning at the conference centre - right downtown. Such a beautiful spot. So while I enjoyed myself at the conference Fred worked away in the city - it was a win win for us both!

As I mentioned Stampin' Up! knows how to put on an event - there was a great goodie bag (I'm still using the bag for everyday!) filled with lots of great items including a FREE stamp set. I quickly found my team mates (another great thing - the Stamp & Create team I belong to is awesome!) who had reserved my spot and then I started to handout swaps. 

I took 30 cards to swap and had exchanged them in no time with other ladies - so many great creations, but I didn't have time to go through them until later that night! Also at our table the girls from the team spoiled us with goodies and Lisa gave each of us this CUTE container filled with all kinds of goodies! 

(Thanks Amanda!)

(Thanks Lisa!)

Throughout the day we have either live teaching from the stage or via the screen from the live event overseas - both are amazing - there is so much to take in. First thing was getting the new catalogue!!! I can't wait for you all to see it - so many great items and I LOVE the new In Colours!

We also get to play with the new products and receive lots of FREE stamp sets and products throughout the day.


It was also the anniversary for the Canada team - 15 years! 
So we all got a special goodie bag of items and a yummy cupcake. 


The whole day is so amazing - a great lunch, lots of time to look at the new products on display, chat with other demonstrators and they also do lots of recognition - I was acknowledged for promoting to Bronze Elite and for completing both Quick Start programs (which I couldn't have done without all of you great customers and supporters! Thank you!).


Once the day was over Fred and I crashed in our amazing hotel - which was right beside the 
CN Tower and the Rogers Centre - I loved the view of the water! 

The hotel spoiled me with a very yummy selection of desserts for my birthday. We were both exhausted after long, but fun days, so we stayed in and enjoyed pizza and Uber delivered cheesecake lol! Fred was so excited to surprise me with that.

And for the first time ever (and probably the last time) I had room service - they brought our breakfast up on a lovely cart and everything - just like in the movies! 

I couldn't have asked for a better way to celebrate my birthday!

I would love to have you join me at the next OnStage event in November - all you have to do is join the team - you never know you could earn your ticket for free!
