KAREN LAZAR--if you happen to read this... I enjoyed sharing a table with you and I'm so glad my mini van had room for one more so you could join us for dinner. I felt so bad that I didn't get to say goodbye to you at the end of the night. I hope you made it home ok and your parents didn't ground you for staying out so late! HA HA
Here are some pics from my Papertrey Ink Stamp-a-Faire trip. I will have more pics in my Flickr gallery if they would ever finish uploading. I took way too many pictures.
The goody bag was so cool. The bag alone was awesome and it contained 3 stamp sets (Forest Friends, Forest Friends Sentiments and Iconic Images), 2 pattern paper packs, coasters, buttons, a PTI notepad, some glittery brads, uh and other things that I can't recall at the moment. The goody bag was not a disappointment at all.
Seeing the DT's work in person was crazy fabulous. Their work looks amazing in pictures but in real life I was blown away.
I met lots of wonderful people that I recognize from blogland (Dana Grothaus, Regan D'Agostino, Christina Maclaren, Amber Daigre) and many from the PTI forum. Some I recognized right away and others I recognized their names and avatar pics. Meeting the DT was another wonderful part of the trip. It was an amazing time!
