I had a very early flight this morning. The improvements at the airport are AWESOME and make the security line move so much faster these days. After a quick gate change, MJ and I were off and away to SLC.
Kathy picked us up at the airport. It was so nice not having to worry about a shuttle bus :) Since we only took carry-ons this time, it was a very fast for us. We headed to eat breakfast and then decided to head to Park City for a couple hours. We decided to start our Convention differently this year. It was a beautiful drive through the canyon with so much green all around. We got our tickets to ride the Alpine Slide.
After we got off the lift, we pulled our carts over to the actual track.
Here we are all ready to take off.
It was a fun adventure!
Ryan Innes (from The Voice) was the performer of our Convention theme song this year. Another added bonus were the fireworks!
One of my favorite parts tonight was a video interview with Shelli and her sister Vanna (co-founders of SU!) It was fun to hear from both of them.
One of the special guests tonight was a representative from the Guinness Book of World Records. We set a record for the most greeting cards sent from one location in 3 hours. (I think we probably should have also set the record for the longest line to mail greeting cards :) We waited over an hour to mail our cards!
Another guest was Ronald McDonald himself. Stampin' Up! has made a difference with the Ronald McDonald House program through financial donations, as well as, many hours of service donated each year.
After the Main Stage presentation, the Gathering Place was opened. Stampin' Up! really goes all out in the form of decorations!
