VIDEO: Stampin Up Founders Circle Recap and Card Shares


I might have had too much fun at the Stampin Up Founders Circle event this past week in St. George, UT. Somehow,  lost my voice. It could be that I lost my voice from the laughter and good times with friends. You know when you laugh you hard you snort? Well that happened, over and over until we cried. Be prepared for this when you watch this video. Friday we went to the Stampin Up mfg plant in Kenab, UT .

FC15_Blog Button 2This is my tenth year earning this event. The “theme” of this year’s event was called “The Last Splash” because it is the last year Stampin Up is holding this event. They are updating their events, and this is one they will no longer be having. Each year, we each chose how we’d like to spend our time. Some go to relax, this year I decided to make it an adventure. Beginning with flying into Las Vegas a day early, with my friend Phyllis Shepard.

It could be that I lost my voice here in the beginning on the “high Roller” ferris wheel, or jumping off a 810′ building….hmmmmm….or it could be I lost it on the zip line or ATV tour.

Coming up in this video is some exciting highlights of the trip, the mfg plant visit, our 110 person card swap and close ups of some of these amazing cards. Be prepared for a good laugh, and a little excitement….
