Downline Roadtrip!

Yesterday was our super fun road trip to Estes Park! I tried to take pictures, but I have a very long way to go in learning to use my camera. All my shots turned out blurry - time to pull out the manual and figure out what I'm doing wrong.

The day started out with a visit to team member Judy's gorgeous home to look at everyone's great convention goodies and swap our cards. We then continued into town to have a delicious brunch and have our meeting.

After that, we went to visit our talented stamping buddy and former team member Cheryl who has opened her own shop there in town - Rocky Mountain Memories (140 Moraine Avenue, Estes Park, CO 80517 - RMMemories.com):

Note to Cheryl - hope you don't mind me using the pix from the website!

Cheryl had a fun make and take for us and I learned about stamping on canvas and painting with acrylic paints and using distress inks.

I came home with a wonderful treasure trove of toys to try out too!

Thanks Cheryl for your wonderful hospitality and for sharing your immense talent with us. If you are ever in Estes Park, Colorado, I would encourage you to stop in and see Rocky Mountain Memories - it will be well worth your while!

Here's a slideshow of our swaps! As always, these gals never cease to amaze me with their creativity and talent.



I'm hoping to get some serious stamping in this weekend - we'll see though 'cause if the sun is shining and the wind is blowing, we'll probably be out on the lake! I can knit on the boat though, so maybe next week I'll have some knitting projects to show you.

Thanks for visiting!
