Stampin' Up! 2014 Annual European Convention Highlights - Inspire, Create, Share

by Joanne James21. October 2014 21:55

Well, Stampin' Up! 2014 Inspire Create Share Convention - what a blast! I had the best ever time and for those of you following my Facebook page you will have seen some of the photos of what I got up to. Here are some of my favourite pictures, along with the Convention highlights video:

This is me with (from left to right) Katie Adams, from the Stampin' Up! USA Home Office, and my fellow 'In a Nutshell' presenters: Kerry Timms, Pip Todman and Miriam van Eyden at our pre-Convention live theatre run through.

Me and the world famous Mannekin Pis - well, no visit to Brussels is complete without this photo, right?!

 My big moment - the start of the second of my presentations on 'Simple, Fun Experiences' - the highlight of my Convention for sure.

One of my camera-shy downlines, Samantha, showing off her special pin to commemorate her milestone 10K Sales achievement - I'm so proud of her!

Pip, Miriam and I at the after-awards night party - looking altogether more relaxed with our presentations out of the way!

Goofing around with two of my fellow Passionettes, Netty Turner and Monica Gale, my Stampin' Up! Grandma!

This is the chocolatier in the window of the Godiva shop dipping strawberries in chocolate; Samantha and I shared a cone, because we convinced ourselves this was definitely one of our five a day!

This is me with one of my new Dutch Pinkie friends, Caroline van der Straaten - Samantha and I shared a hotel with 28 Pinkies and they are such a good bunch, really fun! So much so, I was made an honorary Pinkie - with team shirt and co-ordinating luggage!

Lastly, another team photo and the official Convention highlights video (look out for me!):

Doesn't that look like fun?! If you would like to join my team and I at next year's Convention, which will be held from 12-14 November 2015 in Brussels, what better time to get on board? There's just 3 days left until the current sign up deal that includes a free pack of Designer Series Paper each month for the next 6 months ends - CLICK HERE TO FIND OUT MORE AND JOIN MY STAMPIN' UP!

We are a fun, team with a mix of business and hobby demonstrators and I would love to welcome you to join us.

Back tomorrow with my Design Team card for this week's challenge over at Colour Me...! and a new set of Wednesday weekly deals. Until then, happy stampin'!
