One of the most incredible and unexpected outcomes about joining Stampin’ Up! back in 2007 would be that my circle of friends would grow exponentially. The Stampin’ Pretty Pals (plus their team members) are my cherished gift. Over 100 Pals attended the Stampin’ Up! 30th Anniversary On-Stage Event this past week in Orlando. We had a delightful time . . . filled with hugs, tears, joy (especially over the new products) and a big dose of nuttiness.
A “sea” of Stampin’ Up! 7000+ demonstrators. This is how we began our mornings waiting for the doors to open.

EVERYBODY WINS! Prize Patrol is always a highlight of Stampin’ Up! events and this was an ALL attendee giveaway of the new (Occasions Catalog) Humming Along stamp set!
Pal Ann Schach wins Artfully Aware stamp set (Occasions), Janet Wakeland’s $1 million in sales stamp set. Mike Funke couldn’t be more excited for her!

SALUTE! Stampin’ Up! recognizes our military demonstrators, including Pal (and veteran) Nicole Watt.
A Pals “original!” Almost 10 years of having Pal Mike Funke as part of the Pals and in my life.
AN EXCELLENT YEAR FOR MY STAMPIN’ UP! BUSINESS! Recognition time on the jumbotron. See more about my rewards and recognition for the Stampin’ Up! 2018 year here. I love seeing my friend, Patty Bennett, smiling in the background.
Another Pals recognition moment (level 2) for Stesha Bloodhart. She was selected to be on the Stampin’ Up! Artisan Design Team, too. So well-deserved. WOW!
The perfect ending to a great Stampin’ Up! On-Stage. The Pals and guests (over 80 of us) dined in a private room at Maggiano’s Restaurant. Four hours of food (and more food), friendship and fun!
Pal Debbie Dean was nothing but mischief as she drew winners for our prize patrol. The Pals surprised me with a reminder that my 60th birthday is this month (hence, the crown) and and gave me a gift card to my favorite Tucson spa! I have already booked my first massage, manicure and pedicure!
Friendly faces at the Pals event: Kat Chancellor, Brian King and Kathryn Murray

I received these beautiful handcrafted birthday cards created by Pals Kathy Hendrey and Windy Ellard.
THANK YOU! I can never wrap up a Stampin’ Up! year or event without thanking my Pals Stamping Community, my administrative assistants, Kris Kilcoyne and Stesha Bloodhart, customers, blog followers and Stampin’ Up! for your support, kindness and passion for Stampin’ Up! products and paper crafting. You all play a vital role in my success and how precious this Stampin’ Up! experience has become
