StampFest Orlando! (Part 1)

So I, along with Mimi and my new friend Milissa (from Serendipity Kits - no pix of her - that's weird?!) drove up to Orlando yesterday to StampFest. We had THE BEST TIME! {As you can see! (wink)} I got to meet Kim (from My Favorite Things), Sherry Cheever, Jeanne Streiff, Christie Ortman (from Paper Pretties), and Kristi Ferro (Kristi Lynn)! Holy links, Batman!

I spent all of the money I brought with me on yummy goodies, had a wonderful road trip with some friends, and got to put some smiling faces to some wonderful blogs/SCS galleries - what could be a better day! Above is (in order from L to R) Kim, Sherry, Me, Jeanne, and Mimi. I'm not sure whose idea this was, but I think the pic turned out hilarious! I think I mentioned something about the Rockettes, and the next thing I knew, my hand was firmly grasped around Jeanne S's thigh! (Wow, I'm lol as I write that! heehee)

Kim is such a sweetheart, and she has the cutest daughters! It was a pleasure to meet her, and the whole family! She asked us over to her house after the show for an IN PERSON Jeanne Copic coloring tutorial, but sadly, we were unable to go, as we had a 2 1/2 hour drive in the opposite direction and families waiting for us. (Super bummed about that...)
Can you see my totally cool MFT bag in the pic!? I LOVE it! And I especially LOVE that it arrived in my home FULL of MFT stamps! :)
Jeanne and Sherry were, as you could probably guess, a riot! I only wish that I could have been there for the whole weekend, shopping with them - because you KNOW that I'll be kicking myself when I see them use something that I now HAVE to have, and could've gotten there at the "Fest"! lol Of course, I'd be coming home a whole lot more broke! ;) It was SO nice to meet them, and I hope that it won't be the last time! Did I hear someone mention StampFest '08, Clearwater??? ;)

This super sweet lady is Christie Ortman (lovinmy4boys), and she came all the way from Canada! Wow, what a trip! It was so nice to meet her! And last, but not least, this is Kristi Ferro. Another totally sweet chick! She is also Kristi Lynn, on SCS. I LOVE being able to put the face to the name! She didn't ring a bell, at first, and then I went on SCS to look her up last night, and thought "oh! I remember seeing her cute stuff!"!
So, as you can see, this is a Part 1. I'll show you all of my loot, and a story or two on another post. This one has enough pix, and my little guy is really hankering for some mommy time! {Plus, I'm going to be late for a playgroup! ;)}
Inky xox,
