Getting my prize!!!

Well as I said previously I was shocked and not just a little surprised to find myself in the line up of Demonstrator of the Year. At registration we were given badges, a bag full of stamps and info and a letter. I knew I had achieved sales to be awarded a special pin, but had overlooked the top 25. I put all my pins in my bag and walked away. It was only when someone else asked me about the silver 'Demonstrator of the year' pin that I realised I had one too! Excitement ensued. I think it was more exciting for those of us who had not realised we could ever be in this list than those who knew they were up there in the top spots. It was a complete surprise and really made the weekend.I received my certificate and a beautiful rose from Shelli Gardner, the CEO and co-founder of Stampin'Up! She must be one of the most photographed women in the world!
It didn't occur to me at the time, but I 'walked' the stage twice. Once to be acknowledged for meeting a sales target and once for being in the top 25. It was only after going the first time, that lovely Bekka pointed out that I was the first person ever to walk the stage at a Stampin'Up! European Convention! Not much of a claim to fame, but right now it's the only one I've got so I'll take it. I hope that next year I might be nearer the end of the list of walkers as that will mean I've achieved even more! I now need to aspire to be the last person to walk the stage at a European Convention and any convention would do!!!!! You never know I might even be slimmer! Oooooo I think those pigs have just flown past my window!
