Ok consider yourself warned - this post is going to make you sooooo jealous!! I just got home a little while ago from a weekend trip to Dallas, where I spent alllllll day yesterday making 45 cards with some of the most fantastic stampers on the planet!! I got to attend the Splitcoast North Texas Shoebox Swap!!! Woohoooo!! It was so much fun!! The cards were fabulous - I learned a couple fun new tricks that you'll be seeing on some upcoming cards I'm sure. And I got to meet some amazing stampers!! This is going to be a long post with lots of photos, so sit back, relax and enjoy... and keep in mind I was a big dope and didn't really break out the camera until the end of the day, when we were all looking oh so lovely after stamping our little hearts out for ten hours or so...! (it sorta pains me to show these awful photos of me, but at the same time, I just can't help it!!) :-)
First up, me and our wonderful hostess, Suzy Tyler (s00zy66). She did such an amazing job putting this event together!!Here I am with my sweet table buddies - we spent the entire day together making our cards, traveling from table to table. Becky (tggrfriend), me, Christy (cpine) and Susan (susanrosser).It was soooo much fun getting to meet Megan (deborahmegan)! I've been following her blog ever since she made one of my all-time favorite Courtney's Closet cards - she was so much fun and so nice and friendly!Here's my NEIGHBOR Rae Anne (huera90), and her good buddy Yoorah who flew in all the way from California for the swap! I'm hoping I'll get to see Rae Anne sooner than at the next SCS swap we both go to... :-)I had met Sharon (stampscout) when she worked a Rubbernecker booth at a stamp show in San Antonio last fall - it was so nice chatting with her yesterday and getting to know her a little better!And now... I have to totally brag and show you the SUPERSTARS I got to meet!! Holy cow! And let me tell you, they are all just as nice as they are mega-talented! First there's Dirty Dozen Alumnus and super nice Joan Ervin (who I had also met briefly at that Rubbernecker booth last fall).Here I am with Karen (kikikaren, who is my hero - I went to an all-day cardmaking event without any adhesive, can you believe that?? She hooked me up with a big box of Mono Adhesive, woohoo!) and the famous stamping diva Susan Liles (susiestampalot). She even offered to give me her autograph! ;-)And here I am with the amazing Jen del Muro (genie1314) - you've seen me try many of her awesome sketches on here!!And finally, Shannan Teubner (steubner), whose blog I absolutely adore. She was so funny and so sweet!And speaking of sweet - look at this awesome cake Suzy's friend made for us! I thought it was just beautiful. And it was yummy too!I told you you'd be jealous! I can't wait to spend another day like this, I hear there may be a swap coming up in Austin in October! Yay! I'll be back tomorrow to post the card I made for the swap. Hope you all enjoyed your weekend as much as I did!
