This past weekend, my friends and fellow demos, Sarah Williams and Kelly Fidler, and I went on a road trip to Baltimore to attend Stampin' Up!'s OnStage Local event. My stalwart hubby drove us crazy stamping ladies there and gave us door-to-door service to the event. Thanks, babe! Here is a pic of our road trip crew:
We had a great time there! Of course, the event was FABULOUS!!! We got to see all the new products coming out in the Occasions and Sale-A-Brations catalogs next January. And we got to play with some of the them, too -- BEST PART! So many amazing new stamp sets, framelits and an awesome new tool for the Big Shot!!! Can't wait to share with you when we are allowed to! Stamping with friends is always one of the highlights these events. We didn't make full projects, so I will have to get busy turning our samples into actual cards, etc., to share with you soon.
We did get to visit with our mama/upline Melody Rollins and our sidelines Monica Giberti, Kathy Winters, and Lyn Carroll which is always fun. Our upline lives in the DC area, so we don't get to see her often. Lyn and Kathy came to dinner with us Saturday night as well. Here is a shot of our group along with one of the Stampin' Up! event people who was so nice to take photos of all of us with our many phones and cameras. He was awesome!
This was our third trip to Baltimore for Stampin' Up! and this time we stayed right by Little Italy, so that we could take advantage of the delicious restaurants there. We love Italian food and the restaurants we went to (Sabatino's and Dalesio's) were only a few blocks from the hotel. It was so nice to be able to take a short walk through Little Italy to our dinner and back to work off some of the calories! Can't wait until we come back again!
Update: Couldn't share this pic until the catalogs came out, but here are all the wonderful things we received at the event! So much fun!
