Saw a Friend today!

I decided very much at the last minute to go to the Adventures in Stamping show
in Ohio today. (Hey Juanita - don't be mad!) It wasn't that far a drive for me,
it was sunny out and I thought perhaps I might see a friend or two I haven't in awhile
and I was right :) and I am glad I went!

This is a picture of Damien and I. He used to demo at an LSS near me but then got a job working for Gary Burlin's and now he doesn't have time for that anymore so if I want to see what cool things he is up to I have to catch him at the shows! I have no idea what he calls the technique he was showing today but it is a lot of fun! Messy - typical Damien style! He was using a cool Tim Holtz stamp that I also have thanks to him having talked me into it at the last show so...YEP I had to get the stuff to make sure I could do it at home too. Although I did improvise a bit subbing different re-inkers than what he was demoing. I have 2 samples of my own drying so they will be shared later this week after I get them finished. I will also share the how to's as I did it so I am not infringing on anyone's ©.

I also want to shout out to the other ladies a HUGE HELLO!!!! I miss the local stamp group too and I think a reunion night would be great so if you are in NE Ohio near Lorain or Medina County area and want to stamp - get ahold of me!

I really didn't buy to awful much just the few things I "needed!"

Hope you all have a wonderful Saturday it is gorgeous here and I am headed out to something with my daughter later so am trying to enjoy the sun and warmth now !
