Washington DC Highlights!

We just got back from our Washington DC incentive trip that I earned from Stampin' Up!  It was amazing!  Here are some of the picture highlights from the trip.  We toured the White House, saw many of the memorials, and the pillow gifts were amazing!  I cannot be more grateful for this wonderful opportunity.  If you are interested in joining Stampin' Up! and getting the chance to earn amazing perks like this trip check out the website HERE
