Travel Time

I decided to pair my travel Kim Hughes set with some office themed papers.

First I made a card to send to the home while someone is away. I used Grid Backgrounder on the background.

Then this one is for someone who is about to go on a trip. I used the scor pal to do the grid background. This one also uses a crackle background stamp that is from The Angel Company.
Supplies: All the stamps except the crackle are Cornish Heritage Farms. The patern paper is by Stampin' Up.

In other news:

I went to Stampfest Orlando yesterday. It was awesome. I'm going to go every year I decided.

I met famous people!!! Wanna see?
This is me and Keri and Kim. I had planned to hook up with Keri but I had no idea Kim was going to be there. I saw her in line for pizza and thought, "Hmm, her nametag says "Kim" and she's got a MFT shirt on, I wonder if she's THE MFT Kim?" and she was! Hurray.

Here I am with Bad Sherry. She was working at the Rubbernecker booth, doing awesome things all day long for the crowds.

Here I am with Jeanne. She was working the Rubbernecker booth too. It was cool they had three demos going at the same time. Very cool set up.

I also met Kittie. She was also at Rubbernecker, doing a demo of her new stamp sets. AWESOME by the way! AND we saw her make her famous clouds and it was so super easy. I can't wait to try it out.

I was with my good friend Anita. I'm sorry to say I didn't take any photos with her. :( I kept thinking I'd get one later... later never came.

I did buy plenty of stuff though! Lets see what we have here:

A TON of paper from Marcos Papers. Do yall know them? They will take all your money and leave you with amazing papers.

Some of those coil thingies for the Bind-It-All I have on order.

Some Inque Boutique stamps.

An alphabet stamp set.

A bunch of unmounted rubber stamps.

That ranger white pen I keep hearing about.

The black momento inkpad.

Some transparent glitter.

I totally regret NOT buying stuff at The Stencil Collection booth. They had a huge kit of almost everything that had these tiny beads, colored emobssing pastes, chalks, colored glossy stuff like glossy accents, only colors, a DVD, a tool kit, pick two stencils from the wall, and on and on. Anita got that. Well in her room later I played with it to decorate the black notebook, see it there in the center of my shot? That was SUPER fun! I wish I'd raced back in there and bought some! I'm going to have to make sure I get some next year.
