Sneak Peak at my Founder's Circle Swap

Here is a sneak peak at the little flowers that are going on my Founder's Circle Swaps.

AnotherthankyouFflowersC

Each swapper will be making 120. This is my sixth year attending Founder's Circle and while 120 may seem like alot, I can hardly wait to see the swaps I will receive. :-)

I used the 7/8 Scallop Circle Punch for the flower and the small circle punch from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack for the flower middles. 

If you look closely, I added little white dots to all the flower middles with our NEW White Stampin' Chalk Marker shown in the Holiday Catalog.

AnotherthankyouFCclose1

To give the flower a bit more of a 3D look, I used my Paper Snips to snip in between each scallop towards the center and the small circle covers up the mess in the middle....LOL!

I will be sharing my completed swap cards soon.

 Supplies:
#129404 7/8" Scallop Circle Punch  
#118309 Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack  
#132133 White Sampin' Chalk Marker 
#103579 Paper Snips

We got back to the hotel around midnight and I had to pack.  I got to bed at 2:00am and got up at 4:00am to be on the 4:45am bus!!  It was brutal.  I flew to Salt Lake City and Billings, MT and then drove the two hours home to Sheridan.  I was pooped.  My kiddos had this greeting waiting for me when I walked in.

Founder's Circle - Day 3

Sorry for the lack of posting, I had very spotty internet at the hotel and it became frustrating to say the least.

I am back from my trip and I had such a wonderful time!  Here are some highlights from our third day.  We boarded the buses at 6:50am on our way to Kanab, UT where the manufacturing plant is located.  Here is a pic out the bus window of the sun rising.

IMG_5595

All the employees come out and greet us with high fives and signs.

We headed over to the rock to have our pictures taken on it.
IMG_5605

IMG_5604
After a Q&A with some of the management we had a tour of the facility.  I have had this tour before but we saw some wonderful new things!!  We received a sneak peak stamp set and a stamp pad.  The Rich Regals stamp pads are put together by hand in Kanab and we got to see the whole process. 

IMG_5609
After that, we were treated to a wonderful lunch catered by the Rocking V Cafe in Kanab.  It was so yummy

IMG_5618

IMG_5613
IMG_5620

Then it was back on the bus to our secret destination.  We traveled to the Glen Canyon Dam and boarded river boats to float the Colorado River to Lee's Landing.  Getting down to the rafts required the use of a hard hat in case of falling rocks!!

IMG_5629

IMG_5630
IMG_5655

The trip also included a stop.  You could take a short hike to view the petroglyphs left by Ancestral Puebloan peoples.

To give you an idea of how large the canyon is, I have an arrow on this photo pointing to a fishing boat on the water ahead of us.

We ended the 3 1/2 hour trip at Lee's Landing where we had our dinner waiting for us.  They were packaged in fabulous insulated bags.

IMG_5720
We ate our meals on the bus back to St. George and watched a movie.  We arrived about 9:30 so we had a long day.  It was WONDERFUL!!  On my bed was this beautiful framed photo of Horseshoe Bend, a section of our trip.

Founder's Circle - Day 4

Today is my last day at Founder's.  I will be leaving at the crack of dawn (sorry Dawn!!) Sunday morning.  I had the best time and this was by far the best Founder's yet!!!

I had a relaxing morning, I ate breakfast and then went to the mall with Jane.  She found some super cute clothes to wear to the Main Event tonight and she looked HOT!!!

Jane 

We checked out the Gathering Place and found the treat of the day!!

Tartboard 
Tarts 
We chatted most of the afternon until it was time to get ready for the suprise event.  We boarded the buses and headed out.  We arrived at the Coral Canyon Golf Course and I was instantly afraid!  I don't golf, I don't thnk I have ever even touched a golf club.  Thankfully, we didn't really have to golf so that was a relief.  We got into golf carts with our team members and went out to "play" our nine holes.

Carts 
Cartcindy 

Gettinstarted 

We had to stop at nine holes and there was a golfing or stamping challenge at each one.  The first was the Marshmallow Drive and we had to drive a marshmallow as far as we could.

1 

Here I am getting ready to drive that sucker, unfortunately with my Frozen Shoulders, I had to use a pinch golfer and Mary stepped in for me.

Medriving 

Hole #2 was Stampin' Trivia, we had to answer questions about the company one of which was how much rubber does Stampin' Up! use in a year.  We thought we were donig really good and at the end of the 18 questions, we got ZERO right, that's right ZERO!!!  They were hard questions. :-)

2 

Hole #3 was a challenge, a member of our team had to eat a HUGE marshmallow.  Mary offered to do ths challenge before she knew what it was, after she saw the marshmallow, I thought she was gonna pass out.  Since she had pinched golfed for me, I thought it was only fair to return the favor.  We had to eat the marshmallow as fast as we could and I wolfed that thing down in 30 seconds!!!

3 

Marshmallow 
Hole #4 was another stamping challenge.  A member of our team had to stamp images in squares as fast as she could.  We chose Laurie for this task and she rocked it!!

4 

Faststamping 
Hole #5 was Hit it to Win it.  We had to putt a golf ball and hit Stampin' Up! products.  If we hit it we won it and if we could do it in one shot our team got 10 points.  It took me two tries to win the Winter Wishes Stitched Felt so our team did NOT get 10 points from me!!

5 

Hitittowinit 
Sara 
Hole #6 was the Hole in One.  We had to put a ball and if we got it in the hole in one shot we got 100 points.  I did not get a hole in one but Cindy did...WOO HOO!!!

 6

Cindyholeinone 
At Hole #7 we had to guess the number of stamps in the vase.  There were 118 in the vase and we guessed 144. 

7 
Howmany 
 
Hole #8 was Blind Stampin'.  Allana offerd to do this task and Christina gave the instructions.  It was hilarious!!  When we were done with this, Lyssa graciously took a picture of our group up on the rock. 

8 
Blindstamping 

Grouprock 

The final hole was the Marshmallow Relay.  Shelli demonstrated what we had to do.  We had to put a marshmallow on a golf club and run around the flag without dropping it.  If we dropped it, we had to pick it up and keep going.  This was a speed race and I think we did pretty good!

9 
Mallworelay 
After we finished all nine holes, we headed back to the clubhouse to find our table.  We had a wonderful buffet dinner and then the prizes were given out.  There were 17 teams and we took 2nd place!!!  We were so exctied to receive the Christmas Lane Simply Scrappin' Kit.  Look for a scrapbook class coming soon!!

Grouptable

When we returned to the hotel, we found our last pillow gift.  It was packaged in our Blossom Box cut with the Big Shot.  Inside was a beautiful fob made from our Simply Adorned Baubles - Clear Crystal - Pink Crystal, Vanilla Pearl and our Trinket Crowns.

Founder's Circle 2011 - Day 2

Day two started out with a lovely breakfast and some chit chat.  Then it was off to the Gathering Place to do our make & takes.  There is candy everywhere in this room and it was really hard not to eat a ton of it. :-)

Candy

Then it was over to the yummy treat case to see what the treat of the day was.  I was thrilled to find that it was yogurt parfaits and eclairs.  I love both of these yummies!

Parfait 

Each day we got to Plinko for a prize from the basket so I came home with a lot of loot!!

Plinko 
I hooked up with Kelly, Dawn, Jane, Lisa and Lynette to do our make & take projects.  The projects were fun and we got to use the new stamp set and sizzlit die we received in our pillow gift box the night before.

We had lots of yummy cake to choose from for our late night snack and I chose the Red Velvet.  It was so good, I seriously contemplated having a second piece!!

Treats

Then it was time for the business share, at the end, Jan got up to say a few words and mentioned that Shelli was having a milestone birthday next month.  We all had cards for her and little signs that spelled out happy Birthday.  I am holding the "D" in Birthday.  Shelli was just co cute in her handmade crown.

Shellibday

Founder's Circle 2011 - Day 1

Kelly, Jane, Dawn and I all flew from SLC to St George together so we were one of the first ones to arrive.  We were just chattin' up a storm while we finished up Jane and Kelly's swaps.

Swaps 
We wandered into the Gathering Place and were thrilled to see the bakery case filled with Raspberry Lemon and Boston Creme cupcakes!!!  There goes the diet. :-)

Cupcakes 

During the day we were asked to find the members of our teams.  We each had a team name relating to a Tea Party on our name tags.  We have the first night dinner with our team and also participated in the Final Event with them.  My team was the Cup & Saucers and we enjoyed a wonderful dinner together.

Table  

Group 

We each had a place card in a teacup of roses and we got to keep the teacup.  One of the many things I would come home with.

Roses 

Our dinner was Filet Mignon and it was absolutely wonderful.  Stampin' Up! spoils us rotten on this trip!

Meal 

Check out the yummy Banana Pecan cheesecake for dessert!!

Dessert 
The remainder of the evening was spent chatting with some friends I hadn't seen for a while.  

When I returned to my room, there was a goodie waiting on my bed.  It was one of our Big Shot Die Boxes filled with my Make & Take supplies.  Come back tomorrow for a sneak peak at the stamp set and doily die!!!

Fcbags 


I received the purse in August after convention and the wallet came today with my luggage tags and information brochure.

I need to finish my 125 swaps before I leave in a couple of weeks.  With my bad shoulders, (yes, that does say shoulders as my left has become very painful and a little stiff too) it will certainly take me longer but I will get them done. :-)

Thank you to my wonderful, terrific, AWESOME downline and customers for helping me achieve this honor.

Alaska - Day 3 Ketchikan

Our first port of call was Ketchikan, the 1st city in Alaska.  The weather was beautiful and we made the most of it wandering around.

We had a little fun talking about Totem Poles and I think Tom and Sandy are still laughing about it!

Here we are at the other end of Creek Street and that green building in the background is Alaska's oldest brothel.   Can you see the fabulous coat I am wearing.  It is another item I got on the cruise, I did have to pay for this but it was worth every penny as it is warm and very stylish!

We walked back down and it was steep.  They call this trail the Married Man's trail, not really sure why??

Back on the ship getting ready to sail away.  We needed these wool blankets as it was a bit chilly up on deck but it wasn't raining!!!
