Lets play catch up! Where have I been? Open house Jun 25

Hello crafting friends,

Where have I been?  Let's see.  After Onstage in April I had two weeks before my daughter graduated from college Mothers Day weekend.  I will share pictures below.  Then I had the privilege of being a guest of my uplines on her Stampin' Up! Annual Achievers Vacation.  I went to the Mediterranean on a 7 day cruise.  I will share pictures below.  I can't thank Martha and Stampin' Up! for the amazing trip and memories.  I flew into North Carolina early to take my real estate continuing education so when I do eventually move back to Raleigh I can re-activate my license that I am so proud to hold. I arrived on Martha's door step sick.  She insisted I been seen so we waited 3 hours at urgent care and I had an ear infection and a sinus infection.  All drugged up and ready to cruise.  
Of course the first day we arrive in NC for graduation we hit the brewery. This is by far the best brewery in Western North Carolina, its called Innovation Brewery and it on Main St. in Sylva, NC.  This is our crew and I thank all our friends that honored us by coming to celebrate Allison's achievements.
This is my beautiful and amazing family.  I am truly blessed by God.

These are Allison's two favorite professors at WCU. I thanked them for teaching and aspiring Allison while she was in their hands

The 2016-2017 Stampin' Up! Catalog is here and live.  It is awesome! I am going to hold an open house Saturday June 25th from 1pm to 4pm.  Please stop by and get a chance to see the new products from the catalog and I will have a goodie and 2 make and takes for you.  Here are a few cards I have been playing with. 
I used the Fiesta Birthday Suite for this card. Pages 12 & 13 of the annual catalog.

Playful Palette Suite pages 120 & 121 of the annual catalog

This is a bag that you can make with our Big Shot and Thinlets page 191 and the stamp set is called Country Living is has these boots and really cool old truck and a guitar it is on page 130 of the annual catalog.

Martha, me and Tammy our cabana boy (Tammy's wonderful hubby) brought us our first drinks of the day.
