I'm back!


Hi everybody! *waves madly* I'm home from my fun stamping weekend and exhausted! I had no idea those ladies would be into "cutthroat" scrapbooking! *grin* They stayed up until 4:30 AM just trying to complete the most pages. Craziness. I just calmly made a few cards all weekend (I'm not really a scrapbooker) and went to bed when I was tired.

I made this card for Kristin, the girl who worked so hard to put the whole retreat together and we all signed it. I was inspired by this card on Sasya's blog. Isn't it just gorgeous?! *sigh*

Now I have the formidable task of unpacking and reorganizing my studio. Bleck. THat's the worst, isn't it? Unpacking.


Stamps used: BB: Text style II, Life, Fancy Flourishes, Take Three:Spring.

Thanks for stopping by today friends, have a good one!
