Easter is getting closer

Stampin' Sisters Retreat is over….it's time to move on to Easter.  Can you believe that Easter is less than a month away.  Spring is starting — I won't say it's here yet because we all know we can be fooled very quickly.  The temps are starting to climb a bit during the day — almost 50 yesterday and today. 

Here's a fun Easter card we made at Stamp & Go Club last week.
Happy Easter BunnyI just love this fun Happy Easter Bunny stamp.  It definitely looks like spring to me.  He is dancing and jumping around.  I stamped him in Memento ink and colored in with markers.  Did you see his puffy tail — I cut a pompon off the trim and added with glue dots for his tail.  The designer paper is the fabulous Best Year Ever DSP from the Sale-a-Bration Catalog — FREE with a $50 order (but only through the end of March).  Did you get yours yet?

Retreat is Over

My sister, Tina Rappe, has been mentioned many times here on my blog.  She posted on her blog yesterday "I refer to my sister Peggy Murwin quite often on this blog.  She's my big sister, my best friend, and my very firsts recruit nearly 11 years ago."  I couldn't agree with Tina more — she is definitely my BEST friend, she is my only sister and I wouldn't be where am I without her help and encouragement every day.  She and I put on the "Stampin' Sisters Retreat" every year.  It is SO MUCH FUN!!!

This year my daughter, Katie Campbell, got to attend Stampin' Sisters Retreat for the first time.  She seemed to love every minute of it — checking out the fun she had when her color won a turn at Plinko to win a prize.

Yesterday was the final day of retreat — so sad.  Everyone has such a good time together.  I love to watch new people bonding, stampers are like no others and we have all made life long friends at this event.

Here is this year's group photo — they do look like they are having fun.

Day 2 is over!!!  What a great day we had. 

We made lots of cards and projects that I will share soon.

Today was the big card swapping and card contest.
Here's everyone lined up getting ready for the fun.

55 women signed up to participate in our Card Swapping and Contest.  There were some fabulous cards that I will share over the next few days.

Don't they look like they are having fun.

Through out the day we played Plinko — lots of fun prizes for everyone to win.  It was great fun.  This is the Plinko Game that my dad made a couple years ago.

I hope you'll consider joining us next year — it is a ball.
