PTI Stamp-a-faire Goes Canadian!

Ok so 15 of us settled in for 14 hours of Papertrey goodness yesterday for Stamp-a-faire 2012! Last year we went to Cincinnati for the first one and it was so much fun!

Since we have such a big group of followers here and a few of them have been asking for a get together I figured what perfect timing!

This is us settling in...

Inside, I put in the washi tape on a stick, Avril put in ribbon, buttons, pins and cupcake liners and Sharon put in a crocheted flower!

We had a "For Sale" table so we could trade stuff!

At the 2 hour mark our project table looked like this...

Had a lovely time...wonderful that you got photos of the card (tables) So many wonderful cards I am so impressed with the results. Especially as a newbie to the PTI world with 5 stamp sets and 2 dies. (LOL) Thanks for letting us borrow your dies. Much appreciated.
