Stampin' Up! Convention Dinner and Awards

At long last I have time to share with you the Stampin' Up! Convention Awards and Dinner photos, and wow it was a fantastic evening. We all got dressed up in our finest clothes and enjoyed a fun filled time with delicious food and wonderful entertainment.

Here are my extended family SU team members, uplines and sidelines and fellow lovers of creating. Here we have standing from the left, Me, Elaine Hannam, Kerry, Kristine Giampietro, Claire Daly, Jodie Dart and seated Marlene Robins and Fiona Ryan.

Standing from the left Kathryn Ruddick, Rachel Woollard, Di Dunk, and seated Ros Davidson, Tanja and Lily Westwood, Genna Gifford, Teena Pillar and Alisha Watson

Standing from the left Nicole Nation, Toby, Sue Madex, Tina Gillespie and Nikki Sadler and seated Christine Blain and Judy May.

One of the Stampin' Up! traditions that I have learnt from the previous Convention is everyone needs to share with their blog readers the food - what a yummy meal we had.

Entree - Tortelloni of wild mushrooms with braised lentils and white truffle oil

Main Course - Pot-roasted Gippsland lamb with sage gnocchi, green peas, pancetta and citrus gremolata

Dessert - White chocolate and raspberry baked cheesecake with a fresh berry compote
(The chocolate 5 was in celebration of Stampin' Up! being in Australia/New Zealand for 5 years.)

Now it was time to move into the awards presentation theatre room where Shelli Gardner, CEO and Co-Founder of Stampin' Up! introduced the fun and exciting Awards.

Emma and Aaron announcing the Incentive Trip to...(drum roll)...can you guess from the camels?

Yes you could be off to Broome in the top of Western Australia (just where I am holidaying in five weeks time). The incentive trip is not on my agenda but go girls that have Stampin' Up! as a professional career.

Regionals were also announced for the year with Adelaide being on 17 September.

Here are some of the Top 25 Stampin' Up! Demonstrators in Australia
(not a good photo, so hard to get them all in - I think I am missing the top few).

The last announcement for the evening was we are off to Canberra for Convention 2012, hopefully all going well I will be able to spend three days with all my lovely friends.

  1. So lovely to see your Convention memories! I have missed popping by to visit ... But my dad’s sickness has been a big distraction over the last few weeks. I am looking forward to scrolling back through your recent posts and checking out your fab inspiration ... but won’t have time to comment on each! Hugs xxaxx
