Firstly, a snapshot of the Melbourne skyline taken from the Convention Centre where we spent a fabulous few days being inspired, WOWed and meeting some very talented SU! demonstrators. One of those tall buildings on the right was where we stayed...my roomies were the awesome JAI DT members Bronwyn Eastley, Delys Cram and Paula Dobson, plus the lovely Moana (sorry forgot her surname) and Andrea Morgan (Delys' sister).
Meeting the JAI Design Team members, who were able to get to Convention, was one of the things I was looking forward to most about going to Melbourne, and here we are...

Notice the person on the left, that is the very talented Christine Blain and it was so great to meet her as I stalk her blog often. I also met and made friends with Di Barnes (but can't find a photo of us together). Another person I was able to meet was the very funny Bonnie Thurber...her presentations are always a laugh and I so needed the tissues that Paula had kindly packed in our 'roomie gift bags'.

This wasn't the end of my time in Melbourne though. The next few days I spent with my sister and her family and of course this allowed for a very rare sister's get together, which of course meant a photo opportunity.

As you can see I just love being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, sharing what I love and inspiring others in their creativity. If you would love to be a part of this great family contact me today and I can share with you all the other great benefits of joining up.
