Pictures from Riverton

I want to share some more photos from my trip to the home office of Stampin' Up in Riverton, Utah.  They have an area to tour that includes rooms decorated using various Stampin' Up products.  Below is a picture of a table decorated for a party:

Here is a close-up of the table setting:

They also featured the exclusive Stampin' Up stencils on a wall, each accented with a frame:

Stampin' Up's Decor Elements have been used on the cork board behind the desk to make the calendar and to label the pots in this picture:

Come back tomorrow to see some gorgeous pictures focusing on color!

Ahhhh.... Serenity on Sunday

I think this picture of the atrium at Stampin' Up's home office in Riverton, Utah.  It looks so relaxing and really reminds me of serenity.  The gentle sounds of trickling water over rocks was just so relaxing when I visited there.

The rock waterfall was below the railing on the lower level from where this picture of me was taken:


I hope you all have a very relaxing, serene Sunday, also!
