Celebrating Mary

From the warm desert of Arizona to cold and snowy Utah, Mary and Scott arrived at Stampin’ Up! to an unexpected welcome and a cheering crowd to celebrate Mary’s Million-Milestone. 

The first thing I noticed when she walked in were Mary’s shoes. I don’t think I’ve ever seen her in heels, but these shoes were sassy and perfect for a celebration!

After lunch with members of Demonstrator Support, Mary got a sneak peek at some new product and worked with Kathy to design a stamp set—very cute idea (too bad we have to wait so long to see it)! And Scott toured Stampin’ Up!

Dinner was with corporate team members up Millcreek Canyon at the charming Log Haven.

The next day, Scott spent “golfing” indoors with corporate team members while Mary was pampered with a massage, facial, and a mani/pedi—something she definitely deserved after all her hard work!

Because it was so cold, plans were modified from a tour of Temple Square to a movie in a VIP theatre with Sara and Sean after dinner with the six of us at The Dodo.

Mary and Scott are delightful and genuinely good people. We felt honored to spend time with them, celebrating this sharp businesswoman and meticulous stamper who has built an unparalleled business and community of stampers! Even though the weather was cold, we hope Mary felt warmed by everyone’s hugs and congratulations!

A proud moment and wonderful accomplishment for Mary! One of the hardest working, driven, classy and kindest women I have ever had the pleasure to know. I have been a member of her team since 2010 and would never be the stamper I am today without her, nor would I have ever ventured into the world of blogging, nor probably have purchased so many stamps without her guidance, enthusiasm and talent. So thrilled so see you soar, Mary!!

Congrats to Mary. And stampin up for honouring her. My demonstrator told me about Mary a year ago and I have been following her blog and videos. Love her projects.
And I ❤️ her shoes too.

A fan from Canada!

As a member of Mary's downline, I could not be more proud or more happy! She is sweet, hard working, caring and always there for us. She gives back so much to us as well.
We have all been anxiously awaiting the details of her trip.

There has never been a person more deserving of these honors than Mary! She's a talented stamper and a savvy businesswoman. Even more importantly, she is so supportive of her downline and is an inspiration to all of us. One of the best decisions I ever made was becoming a Pal 8 years ago. Hugs and congrats to you, Mary!

You look so beautiful and I can tell you enjoyed it as you should because you deserve the Royal Treatment. Congratulation to our Fearless Leader!

What a beautiful celebration. I've only just "met" Mary through FB pages and Stampin Up and I can honestly say she is a wonderful leader, Co card maker, and person to know. Excited to be part of her team.

I joined under Mary in 2010 because not only was she so creative and talented but also the most humble leader I had encountered. Her desire to provide a heart warming community of stampers who genuinely care about maintaining a positive and nurturing Facebook group set her apart from the very beginning. We love our Mary and are so proud of her accomplishments. Thanks, Mary, for being our inspiration, and thank you Shelli and Sara (and your team) for honoring her!! Hugs, Katy
February 25, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterKaty McGloin
Yay Mary!!!! It is a success, you truly deserved. It is an achievement you have truly earned. Your dedication, enthusiasm and insight are truly inspiring. So very proud of you, our fearless leader and more importantly a wonderful friend.
