Leadership Day 1

First of all, can I just say WOW! Even though I'm exhausted, I feel rejuvenated too! Stampin' Up! has a grand way of doing that. Michelle & I left for Nashville Wednesday morning and had a bit of a treacherous start to our day due to the weather here in Indy. But, the further south we got the better the conditions got. We arrived at the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center in good time. This place is amazing! We toured the Hotel, had a bite to eat & spent the evening in our room resting up for the 2 Days of Leadership!

One of the exciting things about Day 1 is that you get your "bag". This bag has your class information, usually a pin for the event, and other fun ditties. Our bag is awesome! It's quilted, printed fabric that matches the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder design, and is embellished with the Early Espresso Striped Grosgrain Ribbon. It is so cute! I love it because it is functional & practical & something I will carry all the time! It even has a Stampin' Up! label on the inside made from rubber.

We all meet at Main Stage were Shelli welcomes us and speaks about the theme of Leadership, and Thanks us for all we do. We then break for classes, which were very inspiring and fun. We were on our own for lunch the first day, but Stampin' Up! served us dinner. Here's a picture of the table & our meal. They definitely make us feel very special for our accomplishments. This is already a priority on my list, to be sure to attend Leadership 2012!

Thanks for stopping by!
