{Much Love for PTI}

Ok ladies! Are you ready to relive the Stamp & Cruise? It was absolutely amazing and I think my sistah and I have enough stuff to show you that we'll have a post a day for the rest of the year and still not show you everything. Can I start by saying that the cruise not only went above our expectations but beyond our wildest dreams!!! I still just sit in my stamp room like a little kid and keep looking at all the goodies we got like it's Christmas. Nichole, GinaK, and EmilyBella were generous beyond words! The other thing I loved is that these ladies are truly amazing women, generous, funny, down-to-earth and genuine. You know how sometimes you meet people and they aren't what you expected or hoped at all and the whole thing is just ruined for you....it was like meeting our long lost sisters. We laughed and joked like we'd known each other for years. You wouldn't know it from our occasional absence from the blog (mostly my fault) but my sister and I are a little addicted to purchasing crafty stuff :-) and after meeting these ladies, I feel like there's no place I'd rather spend my craft budget than Papertrey, GinaK Designs, and Stamping Bella. They rock!!!

Now for a few quick pics...first off is the freebie ribbon we got from Nichole. A yard of EVERY ribbon that Papertrey makes. Now I just need to put in my order for ripe avocado and ocean tides! Isn't it yummy! I put it on a clothes hanger so I could look at it all at once!



Next up is a card that we made in one of Nichole's classes. We also received the stamp sets Snowfall and Snowfall additions by Heather Nichols in addition to one of the brand new marvy snowflake punches that coordinate. Oh, and look at those purdy score lines. We got a Scor-Pal!!!!!!!!!!!! We learned how to use it in so many ways. Nichole did an amazing job of showing us how to use it to accent cards and Gina showed us how to make a gorgeous box using the Scor-Pal. Anyway, here's the photo of one of the cards we made. It's way prettier irl but hopefully you get an idea of what it looks like. So pretty in Aqua Mist by PTI! Hope you enjoyed ladies. My sister and I are feeling generous and will be sharing a goody or two via blog candy. Get ready and stay tuned!
