Stamp-a-faire fun photos!


Helloooo!  I'm back from my amazing weekend in Cincinnati at PTI's Stamp-a-faire retreat!  I don't want to taunt those of you who couldn't attend, but I thought I would share a few photos from our day.

This was the entrance to the ballroom where we stamped the day away and had the opportunity to view dozens of Design Team samples on display.  Let me tell you, their designs are even more incredible in person, and I thoroughly enjoyed seeing each and every detail up close!

(Sorry for the lighting--I forgot to turn off my flash!)


We each wrote our name and city on a little flag and put it on the map below.  Don't you just love it?!


Here I am with my two fabulous roomies from MA, Jessica and Suzanne.  These girls are the best!


And two more lovely ladies I was thrilled to meet, Lynn and Maureen!


I enjoyed a wonderful dinner at the Rock Bottom Brewery with this fun and talented group:  Lizzie, Sara, Jessica, Taheerah, Lynn, Maureen, Suzanne, and Chere.


The last event of the night was a dessert reception featuring tons of giveaways and time to mingle with the PTI Designers, including the one and only Nichole Heady.  She was incredibly sweet and gracious in person, and she made the evening raffles a ton a fun, even for those of us who didn't win.  *grin*


I just want to say to the PTI team that worked so hard to put the retreat together how amazing this weekend was for me, and how much I appreciate everything they did for us!  The whole thing ran so smoothly, and everyone was just incredibly professional, kind, and generous with their time.  

Finally, I want to say thank you to all of the fabulous women I had the chance to meet and chat with yesterday--meeting all of you was the best part of this whole weekend!  It was so exciting to be with a group of awesome gals who share my enthusiasm for stamping and totally "get" my obsession!

Thanks to you for stopping by tonight, friend!  I'll be back soon with something crafty!
