I started off as a Hobby Demo just thinking I will get what I want when I need it at a discount. I can see what new things are coming out early and get a FREE catalog every year. I also wanted to go to convention (that is the only way you can go). Meeting the minimums was not a problem as Stampin UP makes it somewhat easy for us to stay active but as many of you know my business grew instantly all because of 1 phone call and 1 email I sent out and I then became a Business Demo (that is because I wanted it) and I am thrilled with every step I have taken to grow my business.

Most of you who know me know that Halloween is one of my favorite time of the year. Both of my boys and I work at the Lewisburg Haunted Cave. I love to decorate for Halloween so this year Stampin Up has come out with these really cool Decor Elements called Spooky Things (120909 black 122296 dark grey $14.95)
I found these really cool glasses at a garage sale event we had at work. I couldn't resist them, so I took the Trick or Treat Decor Elements and added them to the glass. I love them and can not wait to use them.

This past weekend 11 of my stampers (friends) and 2 of their daughters met up with me at a beautiful Bed and Breakfast in Dresden Ohio called Sarah’s House. Tina and Steve were the best. Tina made the best Peach Cobbler on Friday night for desert and Steve made us breakfast on Saturday and Sunday. He also made us some chocolate, chocolate brownie with ice cream and chocolate syrup desert on Saturday night. Steve also played the piano most of the day for us while we scrapbooked. Ok I said we, while everyone else scrapbooked. I planned on doing nothing and I did NOTHING. Wanted to go up and relax and I did.
I have to tell you what I had planned for the weekend and how we played the rest of it by the seat of our pants. I wanted to arrive early on Friday to set up the Breakfast area up in a tropical theme since Stampin’ Up has this wonderful designer series paper pack out called Tropical Oasis, a very cute stamp set called Tropical Party and the Island Floral Stampin’ Up Bigz Die for the Big Shot. As everyone arrived they all had great big smiles on and was just as excited to be there as I was. Everyone that was there for dinner (some arrived a little later) chipped in to help prepare the meal for a very yummy taco salad. We finished off the night with an evening of card making and laughs.
Saturday was a do it yourself day. Some stayed back to scrapbook and others took off for a little bit to shop, I was one of the shoppers. Dinner we decided as a group to go to a little restaurant a couple blocks away. When we got back from dinner it was time for that Chocolate chocolate brownie ice cream and chocolate syrup desert. Some girls went back to scrapbboking for the rest of the evening; I just enjoyed the very yummy Margaritas and relaxed.
Thank You Tiffany, Krista, Paula, Amy, Robin, Kim, Kay, Meg, Trisha, Stacy, Melissa, Sherri and Miranda for making my first Camp Crop-a-Lot the best weekend ever. Dates are set for next year.
