Papertrey Stamp-a-faire 2012

Hello! This blog post will be all about the Papertrey Stamp-a-faire 2012! I am so excited to be able to participate in a group of 19 ladies in Centreville Virginia for tomorrow's festivities! I have been making lists and kits for weeks, and am finally all packed. Here is a photo of the back of my car - all packed and ready to leave my home at 6:00am tomorrow morning to head for Centreville! Yeah!
Well, what a day it was! I can't remember when the last time was that I laughed so hard! A group of 19 ladies got together in Centreville Virginia to stamp, laugh, talk, eat, and learn this day. It was SO fun getting to know people who I had seen only online in the PTI forums! Now those faces have a name, a personality, and have become friends. What a joy it was to share our love of stamping and Papertrey with each other. :) A BIG shout out to Jen and Cheryl for making this get together possible! They had everything well thought out and arranged when we got there at 7:00am this morning.  Here are a few of the pictures from the day, starting with a group shot of most of the ladies that were there.

We didn't get as much stamping done as I had planned for, but we sure did have a great time getting to know each other! And in the end, that's what really counts, and that's what made the day so special. Hello to all my new friends, and can't wait for next year!
