Packing For Vermont!!!

I am so excited! Last October a whole bunch of stamping fanatics (friends) went to Vermont for a wonderful weekend of stamping, laughing and eating! We stayed at a Inn that we filled almost. The Inn was wonderful because it caters to crafters for the weekend. Well, we had so much fun that we are going again in exactly one month from today, May 1st, and we have added two more to our group. I can't wait.

This stamp is called Stella Stamper. I bought her about a year ago and just couldn't think what I would do with her after I bought her. I thought it was fitting to make a card with her to mark the count down until we leave! Actually this is what I looked like when I finished packing for the last trip to Vermont. It was so hard to decide what to bring that I ended up bringing almost everything I own that I can stamp with. I was still packing late into the night and I am sure this is what I looked like. My sister and I filled the back of my Explorer with the back seat down all the way to the roof. I know all the others that came brought just as much as we did so picture what that Great Room at the Inn looked like.

I hope you all can picture yourself as a "Stella" at one time or another. She definitely can bring a smile to a face that creates. If you ever get a chance to get away for a stamping weekend I hope you have as much fun as we have. I can't think of anything better to do with friends.

Stamps: Yvonne Albritton Designs, DRS Designs
CS: SU Bashful Blue, Lavender Lace, Neenah white and Michaels DP
Ink: Versafine black and Copics
Accessories: Dew Drops, Nesties, SU glitter and Crystal Effects, Hero Arts flowers and AC Moore ribbon

Thanks for looking, I would love to know if you have a Stella connection of your own. Please leave a comment to let me know yours.
