Founders Circle 2015 Recap

What a great trip to St. George, Utah we had for this years Founders Circle.  I thought you might like to see a few photos of our week away.

 Our welcome dinner was out by the pool at the hotel we were staying at.  Everyone received a beautiful painted canvas on an easel. 

Our group name was the Watermelon Wonders.  Such a fun group of ladies. 

This was desert - the BEST cake I've ever had.  Sooo delicious!!

The next day we had lots of free time so I had scheduled an ATV tour with a few other demonstrators.  OMGosh!  It was so much fun.  I think I'm hooked on these little machines!  It helped that the scenery was stunning!

The red rock in this area is amazing!

If you ever have the opportunity to visit St. George - definitely go.  It is one of the most beautiful areas I've been to.

Did you know that SU! shreds their excess rubber and uses it for playgrounds.  After our Kanab tour we stopped at one of the parks with the rubber.  Here's a photo of the Canadians who earned the trip (that were there).  So lucky to be a part of this group!

Another great experience is the Tuacahn Amphitheatre - an outdoor theatre.  It is amazing.  This year we saw Disney's When You Wish.  It sure brought back a lot of memories from when my kids were younger and we watched Disney movies all the time.

The last evening, Stampin' Up! always has a farewell event planned and it's a surprise.  This year we had dinner outdoors and then enjoyed the West Side Story at the theatre in the round.

Got to enjoy dinner with these lovely ladies!

 (these last two photos were taken by Patty Bennett)

The cast had done their last show the night before and did one more just for us that night.  Such a fun experience.  If you ever get the opportunity to go to a theatre in the round - definitely go experience it.  It's really quite cool.

Such a great experience - thanks to all of you for helping me achieve this wonderful trip!  I'm so grateful for all of you!

Have a creative day!
