Aim for Alaska Blog Hop

Wednesday 22 March 2017



Thank you for visiting my blog today on the Aim for Alaska Blog Hop. There is a list of links at the end of this post of all the other demonstrators joining the Blog Hop so there'll be lots of creative projects to admire.

Has anyone ever inspired you? I mean really inspired you to work harder than you have ever worked before, longer hours, missed meals and let your cup of tea go cold? Well I've finally met that person and her name is Kylie Bertucci! And for me not to drink a hot cup of tea well that's never been done before! There's a reason why Kylie is the number one demonstrator in Australia - she's amazing! She's motivational, kind, tough, hardworking and wouldn't expect you to do anything she either wouldn't do or hasn't done! Kylie wants to help others succeed in their Stampin' Up!® business and achieve the next Incentive Trip to Alaska so she started the Aim for Alaska Group. I joined this group and ever since have been trying things outside my comfort zone - some days I've felt six foot tall and bullet proof, other days it has reduced me to tears. But with her support and backup I've got up each time, dusted myself off and tried again. I probably won't get the Incentive Trip next year but I will have given it a good shove and at least I'll be heading in the right direction for the next one. So thank you Kylie Bertucci!
 
I'm so excited that this is my first blog hop and here's my card:
 

I love the comradery of this group, everyone supports each other either to celebrate their success or lift them up if they need it.  And the guest speakers have been amazing - so much knowledge and willingness to share! I want to go to Alaska just to see and meet them in real life.


So my friends this is my little boat. My Aim for Alaska boat! Made with the Swirly Bird Bundle and By the Shore Designer Series Paper.

 
There's even a boat on the inside!
 
I love being a Stampin' Up!® demonstrator, everything about it is great - the product, the people, the places - everything. If you'd like to find out how you can be part of this amazing journey please contact me as I'd love to share Stampin' Up!® with you.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy hopping xx
