9/13 Fun from Founder's Circle Day One!

Hello from Founder's Circle!! Yesterday, I traveled from Minnesota to St. George, Utah. Of course, I had to share a few pictures of my traveling buddies. The first one is Lisa Bowell and myself in SLC in front of the plane that hopped us on down to St. George.

Dawn Olchefske and Connie Fitzgerald followed us up the ramp. It so much more fun to travel when you can travel with friends!
We have a nautical theme at Founder's this year. I think the stamp set called By the Seashore on page 93 had to be their source of inspiration! This is the sign that greeted us at the Courtyard Marriott that SU has the exclusive use of for the next few days. 

We are each given our very own room with a personalized entrance! I love all these extra touches that Stampin' Up! does to show us their appreciation . . . and it sure does make you feel special!

Stella MacKay took this picture . . . a trio of 2009 Rising Star friends at the Poolside Reception. In the middle is Sharon McNeely and Sarah Wills is on the right.

This was my place setting at our Welcome Dinner. We played a get to know you game at our Poolside Reception so by the time we sat down to our meal, we already knew some things about our table mates that made it easy to get the conversation started. (lol . . . as if we'd ever have a problem with that!!)

Of course . . . more fabulous personalized gifts to warm our hearts! We each got one of the new Monogram Stamps. You can see it for yourself on page 147 of our catalog.

We were the "Myrtle Beach" table. As you can see, we are well prepared to eat seafood! In the back from left to right we have: Karina Chin, Jill Hilliard, Brandi Barnard, Meg Wheeler, and Sherri Peters. In the front it is: myself and Stella MacKay. What a wonderful and fun group to hang out with!

And now . . . food pictures!! Seafood - delicious!

A wonderful berry cobbler ala mode for a delicious dessert!

And the perfect way to end the day  . . . a pillow gift!! Thank you, Stampin' Up! and I will "enjoy!"
