Miss You Like Crazy and more SAF :)
Hello there, friends! I’m back at it again today with a card that makes me smile. It truly is one I love and it was so fun to make early yesterday morning (still on Ohio time! lol). I started with this week’s yummy ColourQ colours…I pulled out some patterned paper, picked my sentiment and then played around with shapes until this layout formed. I would have to say this is my true love style. Oh, I love vintage and shabby…but this style hits my “happy place!” I even got to use a new Basicgrey brad that was in my PILE of goodies from Archivers :) This is my first time inking this fabulous Verve sentiment and I can’t help bursting into the song, “Miss You Like Crazy,” by The Moffats each time I see this stamp :)
Okay, here are a few more Stamp-a-faire pictures. When Lynn so graciously invited me to Ohio to stay with her and attend Stamp-a-faire…it took me 5 minutes to decide to make it work :) Not only would I get to travel to a new place, I would get to meet Lynn (and family!) AND meet my all time stamping idol, Dawn McVey. I came across Dawn’s blog about 3 and a half years ago before she was on the PTI design team. So I feel like I know her from all her heartfelt blog posts. I had contacted her now and then with questions about this or that, participated in her Raspberry Suite colour challenges and even received a sweet RAK from one of her draws ages ago :) She truly is stamping royalty in my eyes (and heart!). I brought her the card I made for the June PTI blog hop and her birthday, a little keychain from a local Kamloops artisian and my favourite Canadian maple cookies!! LOL I was shaking a bit as I stood in line for her make and take :) And guess what? She recognized my name and our little conversations over the years! I was tickled by that since she has SO many friends and contacts and fans. That’s how special and sweet she is :) I could go on, but this is turning into a diary entry…LOL! So here are the photos :)
The first one is the placard beside each Design Team’s make and take. Next up is me and Dawn at the dessert reception where we were able to take pictures with all the DT members :) Meeting her was on my bucket list…truly..I’m getting teary eyed looking at this :)
Towards the end of the evening, the DT were all standing together so I grabbed Lynn for this fun picture…Dawn was so sweet and asked me to come stand by her :) These women were so friendly and sweet…that Lisa Johnson is a firecracker and a Northwest gal like me :) She was the only one who knew exactly where I lived!!
Papertrey Ink thought of everything! They had a photo booth set up for friends to take pics together…what a cool idea! Here are the 4 fun photos of me and Lynn…smiling, smooching, jazzy hands and striking a pose…teehee :) Isn’t that the best souvenir? It would be so cool at a wedding :) Whew!! Did you make it through all that? Have a lovely weekend…it is our long weekend here in B.C (and I think for most of the country). My whole family (including my son) is in town for my dad’s 80th birthday celebration tomorrow :) I have a sweet card in the works…will share soon once I finish it :)
