Stamp-A-Faire 2012!

I really have so many other things to do right now, but needed to blow off a little emotional steam this weekend, and what better way to do it, than STAMP! :)

Just so happens this weekend was Papertrey Ink's Stamp-A-Faire event, which was held entirely online this year.  A pretty neat concept, I think it worked out pretty well.  I really loved the hello and goodbye videos, as well as all of the techniques the whole Design Team worked on.  I was cracking up watching the outtakes of Heather Nichols' video on her blog...too funny!

Anyway - I didn't get to participate in ALL of the challenges, but I did get to do a few, so I thought I'd share :).

First up- is the morning make and take - I don't have the new Natural Beauties stamp set (yet! lol) but thanks to some birthday money - I will soon! I used Rosie Posie for mine instead.  Had fun with this little cutie -- and that sentiment has GOT to be one of my favorites of all time...ever.  

Next, is the ribbon challenge... ha ha ha...yeah.  I think I was REALLLLY ambitious to try and do Betsy's technique -- and I'm sure that the jar candle I had to use (a large yankee candle jar that was burned about 1/2 way) didn't help... Glad I tried it, but will DEFINITELY need some more practice!  

Lastly - and this one I made today, because I didn't have any shaving cream...until last night, lol.  I absolutely LOVE the results!!!  What do you think???  Can't wait to give this to someone special :)  Thanks to all of the Papertrey Ladies!!  So glad I got to play along!!!  Hoping to get to some more of the challenges if I can, they all looked GREAT!

Thanks for popping by!!!  Have a GREAT day!!!
