This will be a quick post (meanwhile as I re-read it, it took an hour…ha!)…lots of pictures, cause it is late and I gotta get up early to get on the bus to Kanab.
Today was an easy day, slept in, had breakfast and then we shopped at the mall, then we ate at Five Guys Diner, love that place, and then back to the hotel to change into our jammies for our Tea Party, and Swap…here's the day in pictures.
The wall came down and the room was opened up with a ton of couches and tables to stamp and do our make n takes on. We hang out here and visit.
Look at the adorable cushions made with the Beau Chateau fabric. I so wanna take one…or two home. I have the fabric at home as I wanna make a sewing machine cover.
This is the yummy goodness inside the counter today.
Here is Cori serving me up my eclair, like I needed it…she is so adorable.
There are jars full of candy all over the place…
…teacups and saucers, and pretty vases.
I took a bit of time to color for my GoDiva swap that is due the end of the month.
Here's a couple cuties Meg Daves & Bonnie Thurber, from Stampin' Up!
How sweet is this lady? I love her, she is the one and only Karen Duke from Canada.
Here's a few hard working gals that have the best job ever (other than being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator), they work at Stampin' Up! and plan all our fun times, and make us feel at home. Cori, Kelle Sue, and Angie – they know how lucky they are, look at those faces!
My late lunch, early supper a.k.a. lupper Five Guys…so good, and that french fry sauce…slurp!
Here we are waiting for the business shares, we sat up front so I could hear better, I miss lots when people talk in the back with no microphone. Poor Meg is my ears, I told her when I give her a "huh? look" that means I didn't hear it. This is Meg, me, Colleen Vassos & Alison Solven (two fellow Canadians..cute eh?) Note to self…wear a bra!
Here's my sweet friend, fellow GoDiva girl, Alaska table mate, photographer extroidenair Susie Wood.
This is Sherri Peters first time at Founder's, so Meg and I have been telling her to not be afraid to talk to people and mingle, and don't eat your breakfast in your room (like I did last year), she goes on the Newbie bus tomorrow to Kanab and Meg and I will be on the Oldie bus.
Here's Becky Roberts and I, this is her first time. We laughed cause we had the same pajamas on, almost, Becky's were black where mine were turquoise and she had long sleeves and pant legs and mine were short. I got mine today cause I didn't want to iron the ones I brought.
Here's a shot at girls crowded around the cake table.
I so wish I had of taken a piece and like put it in my fridge to eat another day.
Cause we basically starve the whole time we are here…not.
Don't you just want to wiggle your toes in the coconut on top of this one?
So back to my room for the night and this was the pillow gift, I am like totally stopping myself from eating the whoppers, I love love love whoppers. My sister in law Patty and I used to eat them all the time.
We are going to Tuacahn Theater to see Disney's Broadway musical "The Little Mermaid" I did not go last year when some of the other Demonstrators planned a trip cause I didn't think I would be able to hear it, so I was a cheapskate and didn't want to spend the money if I wouldn't enjoy it and it was the last night and I just wanted to hang out and soak up my last night. But this year SU! is taking us and the other girls that have gone said I should be pretty good on the hearing. I am glad I packed a hoodie as it says to take a jacket.
So that is all the pictures for today, I am gonna say night night and get some shut eye…would eating one whopper be bad?
Have an awesome Friday and thanks for stopping in.

Thank you so much for your play by play of the day. I really love reading all your fun. I fell like I am almost there. Maybe some year (in my dreams) I will be there. I guess I would need to actually get some customers then. Have a great time.
