Founders Circle Day 3

This was a day that I have looked forward to for a long time! We went to Kanab, the town where the Stampin' Up! manufacturing facility is. It is a two hour drive from St. George. Those who chose to attend this activity rode there on two buses.

This is KelleeSue and me in front of the bus I was assigned to. They had everybody who was attending founder's Circle for the first time on the same bus, Shelli was on our bus on the way down. She did a small Q&A with us and really listened to what we had to say!

When we got on the bus there was a huge basket of treats to pick out of. Throughout the trip KelleeSue walked up and down the aisle and let us grab as much as we would like.
It was seriously a huge basket!
This is the Kanab Facility. There are not that many pics of the inside, the manufacturing line secret is kept on the down low to give them an edge on their competitors. i can tell you that I got to help make a couple stamp sets. It stared out with four, but I ruined two! I think after today they are glad that I sell them and not make them!
Above the facility Shelli has set up an apartment to stay in when she or other staff members are visiting. It is amazing, the decor has Shelli written all over it!

This is Shelli's mom, Pat
Me, Pat and Shelli

Shelli greeted everybody as they entered the apartment

I so just want to kick back in that tub (can I call it a tub or is it in a different catagory?)!
I promise this pic does not do it justuce.
While we were in kanab we went to the city park that the Gardner family funded.
We ate luch at the park, each lunch was packed in a little pail (I am so cvering it with decor elements when I get home).

I found strips of Designer series paper at the bottom of my pail, of course matching the color scheme of the entire trip!
For dessert one of the choices was Creme Brulee. This is shelli's favorite dessert so they have it every year at Founder's Circle.
I however had the Chocolate cheesecake.
The park has pieces of unused stamp rubber instead of sand. I could not believe how bouncy it was to walk on.

You could even see images on some of the pieces.
This is me and the other Rising Stars posing on the playground.
This was a fun mill on the park property.
I sat by Mary fish to and from Kanab. She is also a Rising Star.
To keep us entertained on the ride back we played lots of games, bingo included (I WON)! There were so many prizes given out, I went home with three things!
I forgot to put my card back into my camera, so the rest of my pics for the day have been saved to the camera, not my card. I will have the pics of the pajama night business share posted later.


  1. Hey I get to be the first to comment again. I just love reading everything and seeing the pictures. Someday I would love to take my kids to the park. I think it's so cool. I'm sure they are glad you sell their stamps too. You do so well at it or you wouldn't be there. Plus it's probably a lot more fun. Keep it coming and keep having fun. Candice

  2. Aw!!!! Looks like soooo much fun!

  3. You should hurry home maybe that's why Brecklyn is waiting to come out. She knows you won't be here. Just kidding. Keep enjoying your FREE trip.
