Hola friends!

Soooo, was so great!  Everything was amazing and I am so glad I went!
I met so many talented designers, which was a huge reason why I went in the first place.   I didn't expect to meet and hug so many other stamp company owners, so that was a treat!  I hugged and chatted with these wonderful companies - Avery Elle, Clear & Simple, Lil' inkers, Mama Elephant, My Favorite Things, Reversed Confetti, Taylored Expressions and Technique Tuesday.  I can tell you that we all LOVE our industry and you are all in very good hands :)

Here are some photos from the show...they aren't the best since I pulled them off from my phone...sorry

with Stacey Schafer, Amy Kolling, Jennifer McGuire, me, Karolyn Loncon, Jen del Muro

Doodlebug Design booth - always a treat to visit with them!

Doodlebug has the most amazing polka dot have to touch it to really appreciate it, but I am sure you will see this product in stores soon.

a friend of mine started her own company...check out Chickaniddy when you have the chance...

...check out these fabulous projects!

Miss Teri dabbles in pocket page scrapbooking...and she does a GREAT job with them!  Look how easy it is to add photos to premade cards!
(Documented dies, Cardbooking dies, Captured Moments)

Erin created this super cool card with washi tape coming out of the bold stamped typewriter.  I love the yellow card base - it really makes this a very happy card!!

Sarah is back with us this week with a card that is absolutely divine!  The typewriter is embossed with gold (swoooon) I'll be stalking her blog to see exactly how she created this gorgeous card!

Smelling (not eating) green apples and bananas help you to lose weight.
Love ya!
