I'm Still Pinching Myself!

I can't believe this happened! When I checked in at the convention in Salt Lake City, I was informed that I had earned Founder's Circle! Founder's Circle is composed of the top 100 demonstrators in the United States for the past year! Can you believe it? There are 47,000 demonstrators in the United States! Of course I started crying and just couldn't believe it! My ranking was No. 59! I got to carry around a special convention bag all week and was recognized at the Awards Night! I also get to take a special trip in September with the other Founder's Circle achievers to St. George, Utah! Well, let me just say that it was because of all of you - my customers and my downline - that I made it into Founder's Circle, and I am totally and completely thankful and appreciative of every single one of you, and at quite a loss for words! My Stampin' Up! experience has far exceeded what my expectations could have ever been! After they announced my name, I got to go up on stage and hug Shelly and be hugged by Shelly - that was so cool! THANKS TO ALL OF YOU - I LOVE YOU! Thanks for making what I do SO MUCH FUN!

Penny,
I have only been to one of your stamping parties, but have been to a ton of other demonstrator's party. I have to agree with the award! You inspire and have a friendly smile to match. I visit your site often for ideas and have told several other people about you and your site. Keep doing great things! You ROCK!
