Covention 2013 Opening Session

I'm back to share more of the convention fun!  Today I wanted to share all of the fun from the opening general session.  Convention always kicks of which a theme song and this year was no exception, it was a great song performed by one of the contestants from The Voice and there even fireworks which was truly breathtaking!

Stampin' Up!'s Founder and CEO, Shelli Gardner welcomed all the attendees and really set the stage for the things to come.

There was a special visit by Ronald McDonald to discuss the efforts of the Ronald McDonald House which is a charity that Stampin' Up! has now become a Global Partner.  Each year Stampin' Up! designs a special stamp set and donates $2 from the sale of each stamp set to this worthwhile organization.  Make sure to check out this years stamp set, Tag It, it's so fresh and fun!
After the opening session was over there was a fun welcome party where there were lots of different things we could do, including checking out some fabulous stamped display projects, Karaoke, a service project making birthday kits for kids at a local hospital, and even working to break the Guinness Book of World Records for the most cards mailed from a single location at one time, we officially broke the record and Aidan received the card I mailed and was so excited he was party of this record breaking activity.
This year there were 6,000 attendees at convention and let me just tell you, that's an amazing about of people in one location and the inspiration and talent that was in attendance was truly amazing.
Pin It!
