Got that Stampin' feeling?

Well I've been stampin and pampering. LOL. My good friend Vanessa was nice enough to come over Friday and demo Pampered Chef to my friends. We made some great Mexican food. My favorite was the Gingertinis. Yummy! I tried to make them again the next night for my hubby and I. I forgot I needed frozen lemonade but luckily I had frozen pineapple and it seemed to work fine. Still was yummy.
I also was blessed with some friends coming over to my house on Thursday to stamp. Our technique club meets once every other month and we learn a new technique each time.

Plus getting to see the talented demos and home office people make fantastic cards, projects, scrapbook pages and more. Shelli really did so many cute boxes using our Big Shot she couldn't show us all of them. But she did promise to put some of those on her blog.

A really cool thing that happened was that Shelli came through the lobby of our hotel while we were hanging out making more swaps. Lisa and I were brave enough to go up to her and introduce ourselves. My upline Mandy took pictures. Check…
