A Magical Convention

posted in: Events, Layouts | 0

It’s been far too long since I last posted but it shows that life has been busy and, to be honest, I’ve enjoyed the things that have taken me away from my blog.

Today’s layout is all about convention.  If you follow my Facebook page, you know I went to Disney World in Florida and had an amazing time, as I always do.  But this year, things were a bit different and this layout shows why.

I used only the items found in the Magical suite: paper, Complements and sequins.  I used #16 pattern from Make It From Your Heart Volume 2.

I’ve attended convention for 7 years and this was the first time I won an award.  I’m not sure which was more special, being recognized as third for Operation Smile donations, or winning the Canadian Team Sales award.  I had guessed the Operation Smile recognition, but I had NO idea about the sales award.  I’m so proud of my team for achieving this honour!

Here are a few close ups of the details of this layout.

The other fun part of the awards banquet is the chance to get dressed up!  I really don’t have any other opportunities throughout the year.  Our group looks pretty good!  🙂

Attending convention is just one small perk of being a consultant and I’m so grateful that my business (and my hubby, who encourages me) allows me to attend this super fun event.  I can’t wait to go to Salt Lake City next year!
