Stamp-a-faire pics

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!

Michelle Wooderson's morning make & take. I used the NEW aqua mist ink on this card.
Each make & take station had one of these.
Ideas using the new Simple Sunflower set you got with a $100 purchase at the event. I was told this set would be available for purchase in August. 
There were a few of these displays at the event.
I have got to make a card like this!

When these ladies lined up for a photo, the cameras started flashing like crazy.  It was nuts and yes, I was one of the crazy camera people!
Someday all my photos will finish uploading and my suitcase will un-pack itself.  It's nice to be home.
