My First Digital Layout & Stampin' Up! Leadership 2012

Hello My Crafty Friends,
I just got back today from San Antonio, TX from Stampin' Up!'s Leadership and WOW! I had a fantastic time!! I had such a blast meeting and chatting with all of my fellow Stampin' Up! Demonstrators!!  OK, ladies and gentlemen I have the reveil of my FIRST EVER Digital Layout and OMG!!! I love it and hooked:) I had a small PK from my friend ROSE! I tell you she has created a monster LOL!! and I can't wait to show you all how to use this software to create your blog headers and much more... My first My Digital layout has some pictures at the Theater where General Session took place with some talented ladies. I'm so... glad to be home to see my son and hubby which I missed a lot. I also can't wait to visit all of you and catch up on all your amazing projects:)
Woot Woot for my first Digital layout!! Thanks Rose:)
On my next layout I will save the Jpeg at a medium instead of small that way it appears larger so you can actually read the writing:) The first picture is of Rose and I.  Second photo is of 
Anne Marie, Michelle, Liz, Rose and I. The layout was created using My Digital Studio Software from Stampin' Up! item #118108 You can use this software to create you Blog Header and much more...LOVE it:)
I also signed up for some classes while I was there and Loved the information.  My brain welcomed every class and observed it like a sponge!! Here are some of the classes I took
*Including a New Generation in Your Stamping Business: Class by Paula Critchlow and Amy Swartz
I learned quite a bit in this class one of those were that the main buyers range 
from ages 25- 35 years old and are women that are not into card making or 
scrapbooking and is market that needs to be tapped into.
*Title Benefits: By Bonnie Thurber, Shannon West 
and Cori Hancock
First off she was such a comedian and loved her!! In this class we learned all about our benefits are a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.  It was a great class because Bonnie challenged us to create a 6 month goal plan.  She said a written plan would give us more accountability!  I totally agree and have done mine and I challenge you to create one also not only for Stampin' Up! but what fits in your life:)
*Retaining and Engaging Your Downline: by Donna Griffith and Patsy Waggoner
In this class we got to hear the Inspirational story from Patsy and how she has become a successful Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.  Her amazing story has certainly inspired me continue doing more of what I love to do and share it with you!!
