PAMPERED STAMPER WEEKEND...
Well, I am back from my Pampered Stamper Weekend and it was FABULOUS! I earned the weekend from my 3rd upline Martha Armstrong for promoting during Promotion Commotion. There were 4 others who made it along with Martha's assistant, Sandy, who cooked great food for us all weekend and gave us a pampering wax hand treatment and my assistant/driver/daughter, Jenni!

We had a fantastic time and learned so much. We were busy the whole weekend creating! We took a brief timeout Saturday afternoon to go into town to a cute gift shop where I got a cupcake to display in my cupcake boxes and a neat pair of earrings. My daughter and I had a great time! Thank you so much, Martha!
Sunday, after leaving, we decided to drive the extra 30 minutes for our first-ever trip to Archiver's - normally 4 hours away from us. It was a really cool place to visit. I managed to spend $50 despite the fact that they didn't have the Bind-it-All in stock which was the main reason I wanted to go there. :( It took a lot of restraint, but DH just started a new job after being laid off, so things are tight.
These are the projects we completed over the weekend (except for one I am using for a class). I know that some of them were cased from SCS or other sites, but I don't know which ones or the particulars, so please forgive any not being properly credited. Martha and Sandy had most of these planned for us. The Build a Bear items were brought by Tammy Shaia and the Greenhouse Gardens Trifold Shutter Card was shared by Jean Goodman. Thanks, ladies! It was so awesome to meet you all (Stacy and Becky, too)!
