Super Fun Week-end Stamping Retreat!

Take a fun group of ladies, a bunch of wonderful projects and a beautiful location by the lake and what do you have? FABULOUS FUN loaded with CREATIVITY! Heather arranges these wonderful retreats for her team and they're just "oz-some!" (Thanks, Heather, for being the best angel g'ma a girl could have!!!) We stamped and stamped and stamped and laughed and laughed and laughed! What could be better? Here's the group after supper on Saturday (thanks, Diana, for the pic!).
We had our prop swap gift exchange during supper and the projects were beyond fabulous! I got this wonderful cookie tin calendar made by Robyn and it's sooo great!!!
Here's the prop swap I made. And, here's what it looked like when I picked it up off the clearance aisle at HL and how I got the gold things off (thanks, Debi, for that tip!) and then I covered it. I'm working on another one for a birthday gift!

For this retreat we each make a shoebox project - enough parts for everyone to make one. This is my project the one-layer border background card. You've seen it here before and here's one for Christmas! I just love this technique!

So, now I'm exhausted and brimming with creative juices. It's a good combo! :)

Happy Stamping!
