AND I am always in AHHH of the Queen.. Patty is so dang COOL. If I lived in the bay area I would join one of her stamp groups... The first year I met Patty I was star struck... I got up the nerve to introduce my self to her swap card she had posted.. I gave her one of my swaps and she even let me get a picture with her.. Later she hunted me down and gave me one of hers.. That totally made my day!!! This picture is not our first together and I look like a dork but I had to just show this picture of her smile... She ALWAYS looks this happy.. MISS YOU PATTY.

Pam is so cool... She has GREAT up-line get together. She is my up-line. We get to stamp together at here house a couple time a year. But his year I have been so busy I haven't been able to go. Not even last week when she was having a cram for convention get together... Hope all goes well for you in your presentation. You are always so fun to watch.... Pam thanks for thinking of me last year. What an honor to get invited to become a designer for SU. You totally ROCKED my world.... I Wish it could have all worked out so I could see you more.. What a blessing you gave to me to go through the interview process and get to be in the inner sanctum.. I loved with all my heart the panel interview.. I grew so much. I was so fun putting my resume in order and creating all the projects. I know that sound weird but it was sooooo fun.. I just couldn't do Full time... It wasn't meant to be.

There are SOOOO many amazing stampers/friends that I don't have picture with that I would LOVE to post... Like the Cutest Angela McKay We meet swapping cards... She had to coolest pirate card EVER! It's still one of my favorites I have ever swapped..
