Stamping Around Philly

This past weekend, I had the extreme pleasure of going to Stamping Around Philly and got to meet so many wonderful people! I just LOVE when I'm able to meet blog friends in real life! I thought I'd share some pics with you.

My class was sponsored by Taylored Expressions. Taylor so generously donated all the supplies for my class, stamp sets that were raffled off at the end and even sent goodies for everyone's treat bag! I created this little box filled with 5 mini cards. The box is the Small Perfect Package and it really is adorable! Hopefully everyone enjoyed creating their little mini box with cards.
Here's a pic of the teachers: (from left to right) Korin Sutherland, Tammy, Becky, Kim and Julie. In front is me and Kathi Rerek.

It was GREAT to see my sweet friend Julie again! She was my roommate last year on the Stamp & Cruise. Since that cruise, we've both had new babies (amazing how things change in a year, huh?) We both brought our babies with us. I brought my double stroller since I didn't know the layout of the place we were staying. I'm glad I did and it worked out perfectly that Owen's seat clicked into the front of the stroller. Here's a little pic of the two youngest stampers of the group. :) I have to say, I was so impressed with how good they were! I fully expected Isabelle to scream or fuss during my class! LOL She actually slept a lot and here I caught her in between napping and waking! :)

This last picture is of my sweet friend Bethany. I met Bethany a couple of years ago, so it was GREAT to be able to see her again!

Hello to all my new stamping friends I met! It was a pleasure to spend the weekend with you!

Such fun projects! :) Had a blast with your class! (And thanks for getting me a working box... heehee)

Kim said...

Yeah!! Baby pictures! Both of the wee ones were so good and super cute! Thank you so much for teaching a class - we loved it!!

Tara said...

Oh that looks like SO MUCH FUN! I had all intentions of going, then my day job decided to schedule our annual fundraiser for Saturday - bummer!!! I hope they do it again next year.

Tammy Hershberger said...

Isabelle was my favorite part of the weekend! LOL She and I had some GREAT conversations over that stroller! :)

Your project was wonderful, Charmaine! I LOVED that little box, and am now on a mission to figure out where Taylor gets those so I can stock them at my store! :) It was great to meet you!
