Founder's Circle--Day 3

We took an hour bus trip to Kanab to tour the manufacturing facility. The employees greeted us with signs and made us feel like royalty...guess they really think that we are. We got to see the whole process and how 60 employees make 15,000 stamp sets per day, plus they make the ink pads, fill reinkers, cut cardstock and much, much, more!
Got to tour the apartment at Kanab that Shelli and her family and other employees use when they are in town for business.  Her touch is every where....just beautiful
then we got back on the bus for an hour trip to????
Okay, they did finally tell us that we were going to float down the Colorado River!  We took a bus down in this tunnel, I'm thinking under the Glen Falls Dam...creepy.  As soon as we got off the bus, we had to wear these helmets just in case a car on the road up on top of that rock wall would throw a rock over the side. 
After about an hour of floating down the River, we grounded it on an island and took a hike to see several of these petraglyphs:

We ended on a beach right above the start of the Grand Canyon.
These cute bags held our dinner to eat on the way back to the hotel...a 3+ hour bus ride.

Founder's Circle-Day 2

Today is a FREE day so I slept in, went down to breakfast and then met up with Connie and Lori and we worked on our make and takes.   Met some new friends...Sharon Armstrong, Jennifer Cotton and Ann Cardile----you would never know this but she is a 72 year old Founder's Circle Achiever!
 Oh, this is what they had on my room door!
 Pajama Night!  Swap and Share time:
 We line up down the whole hotel hallway and swap---120 swaps!

Founder's Circle--Day 1

I've been so blessed to enjoy a FREE trip to St, George, Utah with Shelli and Sara and some of Stampin' Up!s finest demonstrators and employees.  The event team has been spoiling us rotten....sorry family, I hope I'm not a bear when I get home if you don't give me a gift each evening!  Here are some fun pics from today:

This is my room that I have ALL to myself!
Here's my 'team' of gals for our icebeaker game.  We are the Crane's Beach Crew: Diane Winter, Tamye Dunbar, Patty Bennett, and Aly Schilling.  We had lots of laughs and shared all our secrets...they are safe with me girls.

We had a delicious panini lunch bar as soon as we arrived at the hotel, then, only 4 hours later had our welcome dinner.  It was so fun but I was not very hungry.  You can see how amazing the meal was!
