Founder's Circle Day 4

Day four of founder's Circle was amazing!
I slept in (just because I could). When I finally woke up and made my way downstairs they were setting up lunch. The dessert looked so yummy I had to snap a picture of it before I even looked at what was being served as the main dish. I chose the chocolate moose, the mint stick in it was to die for!

Lunch was a pizza bar, with several choices from plain cheese to BBQ chicken mmmm!
After lunch I went back upstairs for my in-room massage. The massage therapist Shelbie was so sweet and took away any stress that I may have had lingering.
I kicked back and relaxed in my room until the "Final Night Event". They kept this a secret as long as they could. We boarded the buses and were given a card that said either Chicken or Pork. When we registered for Founder's 2 months ago they asked which we would prefer.

After a 15 minute bus ride we arrived at a golf course. The first thing we did was all get together for our group photo of all the founder's Circle achievers. This is the view from where I was sitting during the photo.
Me and my new friend Cindy, she is a demo here in the Salt lake area.
I loved seeing all of the fun things that the demos have done with Stampin' Up's Big Shot. This is a beautiful broach made by cutting out different patterns of material with the big shot and layering it.
This is a fun and funky necklace made using the same technique.
The once again beautiful table setting. We were on the patio of the country club.

Before we sat we were informed that we were not to touch the boxes on our tables until told otherwise.
We had a few minutes to get a photo of everyone sitting at our table. Check out the amazing scenery we had to enjoy during our delicious meal.
Ok, so remember the box we were not supposed to touch? Shelli got up and gave a beautiful analogy tying our gardening and butterfly theme into our currently blooming and growing businesses. When she finished she told us to open the boxes and let the LIVE butterflies inside fly away! It was a bit different than even Shelli was expecting when half of them decided to stick around for a while.

After most of the butterflies had finally taken flight, the superb food started!
Um, can we say YUM!

The sun started to set over the redrock cliffs while were dining, the colors were awesome!

After dessert aUPS man came in asking for Shelli he was holding a box that had "CONFIDENTIAL" written all over it. We were asked to put our cameras away (sorry). All I can tell you is we saw a sneek peek of something I cannot wait to share!!!!!!

This is the last of my Founder's Circle Posts. Even though we had the next morning before I had to fly home I could not bring myself to take pictures of the last leg of my journey!

Thank you for letting me share my trip with you!

  2. Hey. .

    I wonder at times to where you get your thought process. The butterlies sound like a wonderful idea. . . to the point I would not of minded to be part of holding one until it decided to take flight.
