All Good Things Must Come to an End and April 2009 Riley Calendar

Wow!! What a fun weekend I had. I love to stamp....that is a given. But better than stamping is stamping with friends. I love the way you can get together with your stamping friends and visit, and laugh, and be goofy, and sometimes cry, but the greatest part is you can get together and even when none of you are talking and you are just stamping away, there is no "awkward silence". Everyone is just comfortable knowing that each and everyone is content doing what they are doing and there are not pressures for someone to keep the conversation going. It is great to have friends who you can just be together with and not have to "find" things to say or do.

THAT my cyber friends, is what this weekend was like for me.

I had the pleasure of having a number of my stamping friends over this weekend to stamp.

My BFF Vicki came from Kingston, my BFF2 Kristi came from Detroit, my dear friends Kim and Heather came from London and when my sweet friend Tami got back to town from her prior engagement she came over too!!

So don't get me wrong....there was lots of talking.....lots of laughing.....a little bit of crying due to laughing.....some giggling (but we are blaming that on the Massi (foot medicine)), and there were some silent periods too. It is so nice to be with your friends and be comfortable enough not to have to do or say anything. I must say though....there was a little bit of complaining about the music....sorry wasn't my fault!

Vicki and I are lucky, lucky, lucky, to have great kids, that get along well together, so I think (they can correct me if I am wrong) they had a fun weekend as well. A few Shirley Temples will help them get along!!!

I get so inspired when I stamp with my friends. Especially Vicki and Kristi. I learn a lot from Vicki. She is totally my mentor, my "idol" as my daughter says but most of all my very best friend in the whole entire universe.....I was teasing her that I keep a little note pad to jot down things she says so I remember for future reference...she thinks I was kidding...... NOT!!

I got a sneak peek at the new releases for Hanna Stamps this week!!! Oh my gosh..they are soooo much fun! My lips are sealed though, so don't even try to break me. You will have to keep checking the design team's blogs for their sneak peeks of the new sets coming out! (mental note to self......have Kristi over at least once a month prior to release dates!!!!! lol)

The fun came to an end this morning around 11:00 AM when the vehicles pulled out headed for home. We are hoping Mother Nature holds off on the freezing rain until they are all safe at home.

For all of you who were jealous that I got to stamp with Vicki and Kristi this weekend.....I'm sorry... but I am just so blessed to have them both in my life and love them both to pieces and so thankful they could both come and spend some time with'll just have to deal with it!!!!!! lol

Anyhow, my April design for my 2009 Riley Calendar is below!

The base is Tempting Turquoise and the designer paper is from SU's Bali Breeze collection. I stamped the fence from the springtime Hanna set and stamped Riley and coloured them with the Copics and adhered them to the page. I would have fun flocked the little chick...but didn't have any until will be revisiting this little chick in the near future!!!!

I hope you are all enjoying a relaxing Sunday.
Chow for now,
