Hello from Orlando.. Leadership 2009 is officially done.. except for dinner tonight with my Advisory Board buddies! 🙂  What a great 2+ days.. fabulous motivational speakers, great demonstrations of new products, sneak peeks, displays, etc.!  Next year I hope you plan to join me!  It's a GREAT way to boost your spirits, get motivated and mingle with the leaders of the company! Sr. Supervisors and above are invited to attend!

Tomorrow I'm staying for the Regional Seminar! yahoo!

I guess it was a good thing that my laptop won't read my new high capacity camera memory card… I verified with the Stampin' Up! Compliance department that NO SNEAK PEEK PHOTOS of new products are allowed to be posted to the internet until the catalog release date of January 19.  So I can't share photos of new things until then, but I will post pix of some swaps and other fun photos as soon as I get home on Monday. Yes, I realize other people are doing it and as much as you know I LOVE TO SHARE, I will not be breaking the rules. 

I am still on a total high about the Digital Scrapbooking announcement! I've been asking for that for YEARS! 

As announced on the Stampin' Up! site there will be some fabulous new promotions and offers coming up in the next few weeks and months… as if the new catalog weren't enough! 🙂  So how does Custom Decor Elements sound!?  You will be able to get any quote or name or words you want on a Decor Elements piece! LOVE that!  How about a FREE Catalog in February!?  Stay tuned for info on how you can take advantage of that!

Last night was our Managers Reception – can you believe they closed down Universal's Island of Adventure FOR US!? We got to go on the rides without any waiting, we got free food and drinks all night (and I'm not talking "park food"… I mean catered yummy gourmet food!!), and the Super Heros were out all over for photo ops.. WHAT A GREAT NIGHT.. THEN.. A FREE STAMP SET in a Superman Lunch Box!!  🙂  How fun is that!?  Stampin' Up! really knows how to treat us!

Anyway.. sorry about not being allowed to post photos, I'm sure you understand my desire to stay within the policy.

Looking forward to sharing more with you soon,
