Spring Fest 2012

I had an awesome time this weekend with 80+ stampin’ friends at the Spring Fest event in Buffalo, NY!  It is always so much fun to meet up with these ladies… some of them I only get to see this one time out of the year.  After months of planning, the weekend always flies by too quickly!  The only thing I’ve unpacked so far is my camera, so here’s a few photos of the day…

Lynn, Tracy (our leader), and Cheryl… ♥ these ladies!

Some attendees waiting to get started…this is about half of the tables.

Arlene and others hard at work…

Here’s just a few of the projects these talented ladies brought to share!

Fab table favors made by Beth (who seems to have escaped all my photos).  Perfect for our Wizard of Oz / Over the Rainbow theme!

A few of the wonderful doorprizes that were so generously donated!

A lucky recipient of some Crafters Companion goodies…

Tracy put together a candy bar with several of “Dorothy’s” baskets…

Time for a break!  Greg and the kitchen crew spoiled us with a great lunch!

Some ladies brought a dish to share and Laura Albertson made these CUTE-AS-CAN-BE olive penguins!  They were really yummy too!

Having fun, Lisa?

Our “LUCKY” winner, Pam, and Lou Ann…

MaryAnn looks like she’s having fun.  And could that be the elusive Beth in the kitchen?  I think so! 

Sherry Czarnecki was very “a·muse-ing”  ;0)

What a fun day!!!  After all of the clean-up, everyone shopped at the best stamp store ever…Buffalo Stamps & Stuff.  Then we went out for a yummy, relaxing dinner.  Here’s our annual shot before we say goodbye…a few left and missed the photo.  :(   Cheryl, Lisa, me, Michele, Tracy, Jeannette. 

I’ll be back with photos of my projects soon.  Have a great week!

  1. I hope someone got a picture of your socks and rolled up jeans. Nothing says “Over the rainbow” like those socks. :) Kidding aside, it was a fabulous weekend. So nice to talk to others stampers, seeing and doing their fabulous projects, and of course, eating and shopping. When are you posting your ATC?

  2. Diane, You and the team deserve 80plus thumbs up for the awesome job
    you did for the gathering. I’m still am in shock about my good fortune!
    I hope Tracy rethinks her decision about this being her last year. It was great!

  3. Awesome pictures!! Beth is the “where’s Waldo” of Spring Fest, lol. You captured all the fun of the day.

  4. Looks like SO MUCH FUN!! Looking forward to seeing your projects.

  5. Here I am! :) That was pretty “crafty” of me to avoid your camera, wasn’t it?? Thanks for all your hard work on donations. I’m glad you posted your ATC. It was my favorite – hands down.
    Hope to see you next year.

  6. We had so much fun as always! Great pictures of the fun everyone had! You did an amazing job with the donations as did tracy, Lynn, and Beth! What a great team!
