OMG where do I start??? Just got back last night from a fab road trip to Telford for Stampin Up UK training at the International Centre (fab venue). We left on Friday at 10am (my downline Sharon driving myself and Nic) and we got back around 7pm last night! Was a fab weekend FULL of laughs and inspiration and a chance to catch up with those team members who don't live so close to me :). This blog post is a photo diary of our weekend!!!
At these events we usually make general swaps and I failed this time (have to say I have a good excuse - I am moving house TOMORROW!!!!!). However I did make a little swap for the members of our team who attended the training so I set about making 29 of these on Thursday evening!
As you can tell I didnt get them all done so had to carry on with them in my hotel room! Can you tell which hotel we were at??? Have to say I would not have got them done without the help of Sally Jo and Yvonne so a huge huge thank you to them!
I did feed them some of the chocolate that I put in the little dresses though!
On the Friday evening my downline Sharon had organised a lovely meal out for us (aswell as doing all the driving) at a lovely little place nearby called Ironbridge! It was a beautiful little place and very very picturesque!
Messing about taking a photo of myself!
Here are 4 of us, me, Sharon, Karen and Nic!
We had such good fun at the lovely cafe bar and went a different way back! We saw some road barriers half way up a road but as they weren't blocking the whole road off Sharon continued to drive - only to be met by this! Oh we did laugh!!! Then quickly turned back round! We then returned to the hotel for a drink in the bar and OMG I have not laughed so much in a long long time!!
Loved the venue for the training, have to say it was perfect. I took lots of photos of things I cannot share with you yet so you will have to make do with piccies of me and my lovely lovely girls and check out the fun times we were having!
Me and Sally Jo!
Me and Hayley - my table buddy and then me and Rebekah.
Lynda, Kate, me and Barbara. I was so so proud of Kate who had been asked to do a wonderful display of items with some new products. Proud Mummy moment!
Nicky and Debbie with me. Nicky has recently just promoted to Silver 2 and it was fab to hug her and give her a card in person! x
