While at the Super Show in Orlando last week I did manage to squeeze into the Papertrey Booth (I'm sure you've all heard about the long lines by now just to get in!) and pick up a few sets that I had been wanting - one being Vintage Picnic. I love everything about this set! I own a vintage tin picnic basket that I just love - it houses some vintage tatting threads in vintage candy boxes and it just makes me happy to look at it! (I'll try and get a picture of it up later today.)
So of course my first card with this set was inspired by my picnic basket - although the stripes on my box do not run diagonally, oh well! I used some fabulous October Afternoon papers to piece my basket and for the background. How about that fun pop of pink?! Just the right girly touch don't you think? :)
I used some beautiful Papertrey buttons (I picked up the cream/white mix at CHA). I'm looking forward to using this set a lot! Of course I also picked up the Vintage Picnic Sentiments which extends the set and gives you lots of options for sentiments!
Cardstock: Kraft, Sweet Blush, Vintage Cream (Papertrey Ink), Patterned Paper: October Afternoon, Stamps: Vintage Picnic (Papertrey Ink), Ink: Memento, Accessories: Sweet Blush ribbon, Buttons,
Twine (Papertrey Ink), Nestabilities, Copic markers, Slot punch, Corner Rounder punch, foam adhesive
How about a few pics from CHA? Did I mention before that I took my camera the first day (which is a big bulky, heavy SLR) to CHA only to discover I left my memory card at home?? Total bummer!! But Kim was nice enough to take share her pics with me so I have just a few to share.
Kim and I (of course I hate this pic! When will I learn to keep my neck straight so as not to give the "turkey neck" look - LOL!)
It was wonderful to finally meet Kim Crawford in person! She was just delightful - although extremely exhausted by the last day of the trade show! :) She gave us some great tips of the "must sees" at the show! Thanks Kim!!
What a treat to meet Bev (aka Texasgranny)! We had pm'd a bit before the show so it was wonderful to meet up with her near the SCS booth!
THE Debbie Olson! We had met before but it's always great to see her sweet smile and spend some time chatting. Debbie is just the Best!! :)
We had such a great time chatting with Taylor and her mom, Linda for quite a while! We laughed and enjoyed the time so much!! (get a load of that awful angle of my wide self - lol!)
My buddy Joanne! It's always such a treat to see her sweet self and hang out with her and the MFT girls (THANKS so much Kim!!)! Funny how she only lives a couple hours away and we tend to meet up in far away places!! :)! Our next meeting though will be Stamping Around VT - she's teaching a fabulous for us there - YIPPY!!
Kirsten Dubosque, Joanne & I - it was my first time meeting Kirsten in person too and she is just SO FUN - even though it did take her a minute to recognize me with the blonde highlights (*wink, wink*) LOL!!!
There were MANY other wonderful people I was so privileged to meet or see again, but . . . the no memory card thing kept coming back to bite me! :) If I start listing people I will forget some - suffice it to say it was an amazing weekend and as we all know, stampers are THE BEST and SWEETEST people you could ever meet!! Well, that's all I have for today - thanks for hanging in with me on this long post! Enjoy your day and as always, thank you so much for stopping by!!
