Day 2 of Convention

Day 2 started out with another big swap for me...woohoo!  Then the doors opened for General Session.  At lunchtime, I had a Halloween swap and then the Stampin' Up Expo opened for classes, Make and Takes, Memento Mall, and more.  That evening was Awards Night, followed by the 25th Anniversary Party...with cupcakes, entertainment and carnival games with prizes!

 The guy from Guinness World Book examined our cards for the big world record of having sent the most cards from a single location in one day.  We won!!
 A few of the many cards on display.
 This was a neat display of all of the catalogs for the last 25 years.

We had demonstrators from all over the world giving demonstrations during the Expo.
A giant Make and Take session!
 A swap!
 The card displays were very popular!
A cute Christmas card demonstration during the morning general session.
 The massive crowd of all 6,000 of us begins to move from the Main Stage to the Gathering Place
The 25th Anniversary Party begins!

 These tables constantly changed color.
 Carnival Games!
Here's where we placed our tickets!
Next, I will post pictures of our final day.  More swapping, a yummy lunch, and 3 amazing classes.  Plus, I was able to meet up with a friend I had been corresponding with for 2 1/2 years!
