 Today I wanted to share photos from our Founder's Circle trip to Kanab, where we not only enjoyed a trip to the Stampin' Up! manufacturing facilty, but we also stopped at the  park that was donated/built by Shelli and Sterling Gardner of Stampin' Up!

Several of you have asked me what the criteria is for being a part of the Founder's Circle. I thought I'd briefly explain.  All 40,000 (+/-) US demonstrators are ranked in 6 different categories, like our personal yearly sales, our recruiting efforts and the promotions in the 1st level of our downline.  Each person is given points in those categories and the top 100 people with the most points each year are the Founder's Circle members for the US.  Top demonstrators from Canada are also included in this group. We receive a trip to Southern Utah each year and get to spend time with Stampin' Up! employees and corporate team members as well as of course network with each other.  This year, since Shelli had her accident, she was unable to attend, but her LOVELY daughter Sara stepped in and did a marvelous job of making us feel loved and welcome! :)

That evening after the day in Kanab, we went to a musical at the GORGEOUS outdoor Tuachan Amphitheater in St. George, UT.  We saw Mary Poppins.. what a wonderful production!!  They don't allow photos during the performance, but here are a couple pix before the event:

Oh Patty I'm so excited!!! Thank You!!! I can hardly wait to make something fabulous to share with you!

I think it's so totally awesome Stampin' Up! is repurposing the extra rubber for playgrounds! It must me super cushy and safer for kids when they fall down.
How spectacular to see Mary Poppins in such an amazing outdoor theatre! Breathtaking views!

You've totally made my day Patti! Thank you do much!

Kindest regards,

Patricia Willey

What a treat to see these posts Patty thank you! Utah is so beautiful! Love that Amphitheater -and the park the Gardner's made for the community I'm sure is very appreciated!
