My Bestie!

Hi Everyone!

I spent the weekend at Scrapfest at the Mall of America (in Minnesota) and had a ton of fun!

My awesome husband went with me.  He endured long lines, lots of walking, countless trips to Archivers, and my ohhs and awes when I would spot well know crafters (he pretended to know who Tim Holtz and Teresa Collins were- even though I knew he had no clue!).
He carried all my shopping bags and kept my place in line when I would have to "run back and grab one more thing".  That man spent 14 hours in a mall with me on Saturday-- I can't believe I spent 14 hours in a mall!  My husband is NOT crafty- but he supports my addiction hobby 100%.

Our 11 year Wedding Anniversay is in December (we've been together for 16 years!) and he has been and forever will be my best friend!

I used the Cricut Elegant Edges for all of the shapes and scallops.  The image is the digi Kissy Kissy from Greeting Farm.  The ribbon is Ice Blue crinkle ribbon from my new store- 3 Girl JAM.  The sentiment is Crafty Sprouts Besties for Life.

My friend Erika at Crafty Sprouts is having a sketch challenge and a celebration of her new stamp releases.  
Her stamps are fantastic- the sentiments are awesome, funny, unlike any other- but most importantly the stamps stamp wonderfully!!

Thanks for stopping by!
