Convention 2012 - Part 1

So we are back from Convention 2012 in Mainz, Germany. It was a great trip and here are a few highlights:
Here we are at the airport. Very excited!!

Here's our dinner on the first night. We found a sort of diner which was fun. I had a glass of Prosecco on behalf my DH as it's his favourite.

Later we met up with Pip who was enjoying some traditional German beer at the hotel.

Pip's friend Dianne is actually normal sized but she looked tiny on this chair in the hotel reception area.

We were able to collect our convention bag on the first night. Look at all the great free stuff! The bag is gorgeous. We had a copy of the current catalogue, guide book, name badge with lanyard THREE giant make and take kits plus TWO stamp sets. Fantastic!!!

This is one of my favourite gifts. Pam Morgan from the SU HQ demonstrated it. Will have to give these flowers a go!

This was on the display. Isn't it gorgeous?! It's amazing what can be made with paper.

The French Business Development Manager, Jerome, made this box frame. Isn't it gorgeous! Would be a great gift.
