An Amazing Paper Crafing Experience…

Catherine Gallery, Pooler Shenanigans, Projects

Ooooh, ladies!  I had the most amazing weekend!  Some of you know my dear friend, Maureen Merritt.  She is part of StampNation with me and she is even in my book, Life Scraps.

Maureen and I met online two years ago and immediatly hit it off.  Communicating almost daily online, via e-mail and on the phone, we've developed a really close friendship that I cherish .  It's so amazing how my love of paper crafting and the online world has brought such an incredible friend to my life.

Last week I spoke to Maureen on the phone and we decided, on the spur of the moment, that we would FINALLY drive to Baltimore (about half way between our homes) and MEET!

Do you know how weird it is to get to know someone through the internet, feeling really connected to them and feeling like you know them pretty well without ever having been in the same room with them?   I was so excited to meet Maureen in person and spend time with her and our weekend was no disappointment!
We stamped, shopped, did nails, ate and TALKED…it was so super fun and I can't wait to do it again!

I have a few photos to share with you.

We chose to meet just outside Baltimore near, what else?  A scrapbooking store!  We got up Monday morning and went into Great Scraps for a couple hours of fun.  We told Barbara and Grace (the gals at the store) our story and had a blast taking shop with them!  They were very sweet and fun to talk to, so if you are in the area, stop in and say hi and tell them Catherine and Maureen sent you!

Maureen gets some goodies!

Of course we had to stamp!  Here's a peek at some of the cards we made.  I cut part of the card on the right off on purpose…I laughed my behieny off over that for hours, actually days…I'm still laughing!  But didn't want to offend anyone.

Thanks for stopping by today and reading about my weekend.  The internet is an amazing thing that can bring people together in ways we never thought possible.

If you want to pop over to say hi to Maureen, you can visit her blog HERE.
