Stampin’ Up! Leadership Goodies!

One of the things that I love about Leadership is that we always get a great bag!  And this year was no exception.  In fact, this may be my favorite Leadership bag so far.


My picture just does not do this great bag justice.  I love the colors and the "Do What You Love" design!


I also got a Do What You Love journal from my SAM.


We also got several free stamp sets!  Love them all!!


The Managers Reception was held at the Corona Ranch and we received the Love Bandit
stamp set as a gift that night.



In addition to the gifts that we received, we had the opportunity to buy some logo items in the Stampin' Up! Memento Mall.  I bought the Designer Ribbon Watch, some Sweet Pea Reusable Shopping Bags…


And the Pink Flamingo Beach Towel and Flip Flops!  Too cute!


If you would like information on attending Leadership and partaking in all the fun,
please feel free to call or email me!
