Grand Vacation Blog Hop - Mediterranean Highlights!

30 June 2016

Hello - Hola!

Welcome to the Mediterranean Achievers Blog Hop. The blog hop was created to celebrate those who had earned a Stampin' Up! Grand Vacation this year, to showcase our creations and share our love of Stampin' Up!

The theme for this blog hop is Mediterranean Highlights. Please be sure you 'hop' to next person after me - Louise Sharp - on the link list and enjoy all our European travels!

I am going to share a very quick snippet of our trip. There were so many highlights, it was hard to cut it back. I will be back to share a selfie reel of all my favourite demos from the trip. I want to make sure you get through everyone and see all our adventures.

The view of Barcelona from the cable car.

We spent the first few days in Barcelona hanging out with the beautiful Theresa Brown and her daughter Louise. So fun. We did have gelato every day!

If you look closely you will spot Daniel in front of the ship!

Winning prizes at General Session with my gorgeous Stampin' BFF Shannean Moncrieff.

My other Stampin' bestie Kylie Bertucci, from Melbourne, VIC - spinning the prize wheel in the Hospitality Room.

I won an apron - covered in Pasta!

Left on our bed each night is a Pillow Gift. We seriously get so spoilt.
These are just some of them!

A huge highlight for me was getting to go to the Leaning Tower of Pisa. 

Just thought I would catch up with a few friends in Italy! LOL
 Shannean Moncrieff, Monica Gale, Phyllis Shepherd and Pam Jorgensen.

Selfies with THE Sara Douglass - new CEO of Stampin' Up!

We finally ran into Shelli and Sterling Gardiner in France.
I know it has taken many hands to build and shape Stampin' Up!, however if it won't for Shelli and her dedication, hard work and resilience, we wouldn't be here. so thank you Shelli.

I feel so incredibly blessed to be part of this amazing, generous company. I loved more than anything seeing all the demonstrators and making new friendships from around the world.

Now be sure to click the person on the list and have fun checking out their Mediterranean Highlights. Enjoy!
