Palm Springs, CA - here I come!

Woo hoo! I'm so excited! Thanks to the wonderful ladies in my downline, today I promoted to Senior Supervisor! This was definitely a career goal I set for myself this year because I very much wanted to be able to attend the Stampin' Up! leadership meeting in Palm Springs, CA this January. Now that I've accomplished this, I'm heading out to California and I can't wait!

Along with a chance to go to he leadership meeting, this promotion also comes with $100 in free Stampin' Up! merchandise! WOW! I'm sure going to have a lot of fun picking out my free stuff!

But with all the excitement today and all the other stamping events taking place, I didn't really have a chance to do a lot that was new. Here is my sole effort tonight and, I admit, it leaves something to be desired. I used a couple of sentiments from the So Many Sayings set and the flowers from simply said. The card stock was night of navy, bashful blue, so saffron, and whisper white. I used night of navy to stamp the sentiment and the flowers, and my bashful blue and so saffron markers to color in the flowers. I added some paper piercing in the corners of the so saffron layer, and decided to add some gingham ribbon with a so saffron brad to the whisper white layer. The problem is that the ribbon kind of blocks the paper piercing. If I had more time I might have re-done it, but as it is I have to get some rest. Gotta get up early tomorrow to pick up my friend Eileen at the Airport. She's flying in from New York for a meeting on Monday but we get to hang out together all day tomorrow. Woo Hoo!

Oh Diane, I'm so happy for you! That's a GREAT accomplishment. Have fun picking out your new goodies, you deserve it! Don't forget to think of us here in Illinois freezing our rumps off in Jan. when you are soaking up the sun in CA.

Congrats Diane! You will love PS if you have never been before. I live about an 1+1/2 hours from there so I go spa playing plenty! Fabulous spas and natural mineral springs everywhere! Ahhhh sounds good! It won't be so hot in Jan. either! Lots of yummy food and shops and there is a cool scrapper store on Hwy 111 in Palm Desert (close by to PS) forget the name right now (Maybe "Scrappers Paradise" or something). You will have fun with your SU buddies! Where do you all stay? Do you have to pay for your flight from Chicago to PS? Just curious!

Congratulations on reaching your goal and getting the promotion. Have a great time in CA, I know that I will be jealous that you won't be in the cold and snow like the rest of us Midwesterners.
