Mediterranean Achievers Blog Hop – September – Thankfulness

2016 GV Blog Header

Hi All

Welcome to the Grand Vacation Achievers Blog Hop for September! Those hopping today are all Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators from all around the world who have met the requirements, and earned the amazing Stampin’ Up! Incentive trip – while everyone can try, only a limited number of demos (less than 1% of all demonstrators) reach the level required to earn the trip each year. This month is our last hop for the Mediterranean Trip as September is the end of our Stampin’ Up! year. Next month those that have earned the Incentive Trip to Thailand in 2017 will be hopping each month.

You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog – Jackie Noble aka creativeJax –  or may have come from the person previous to me in the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup at the bottom of this post will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects. Remember – at the moment you are visiting Jackie Noble aka creativeJax.  

Our theme for this final Mediterranean Hop is “Thankfulness” … and I have much to be thankful for! … Life … Family  … friends … creation in all its forms … challenges … a “job” I love … I could go on as the list is long! Suffice to say I am truly grateful.

As the Hop participants are all part of the group of Demonstrators from throughout the world who’ve earned the pinnacle of Stampin’ Up!’s yearly achievement goal – The Incentive Trip – I especially want to thank those that helped me earn the right to be part of this group. My family and friends, my Stampin’ Up! Team and Uplines, and my wonderful customers have all contributed – and I am grateful.

I’m also super excited to let you know that as of a couple of weeks ago – I have earned the next Incentive Trip! That means in July next year I will be heading to Phuket, Thailand – and this time I’ll be taking our daughter Beth as my guest.  Thank You, Thank You, Thank You once again!

The same week I earned the Thailand Trip the 2018 Trip was announced – an Alaskan Cruise for two! Thanks Stampin’ Up! for offering these amazing Incentive Trips as a possibility to all demos! My aim is to be on that trip too – and to have at least one of my Downline earn the trip as well! Wouldn’t that be awesome! What fun we would have!

For my Blog Hop project I didn’t have to look far for an appropriate stamp set – the sentiments from the Paisleys & Posies are simply perfect!



is there anything else to say? … well maybe …


” I thank you for your part in my journey. “


That’s it from me for today – I’m simply focussing on the Blog Hop Theme – Thankfulness – whether that be related to my Stampin’ Up! journey, my family journey or my life in general journey

“Thanks – I’m very grateful”!
