…I mean Talk…ha!
So we tease each other about being stalkers. "Oh I stalk your blog, I stalk you on Facebook" things like that. Now we can stalk each other on an awesome new forum for Stampin' Up! Demonstrators only, called Stampin' Connection. If you have ever thought about becoming a Demonstrator, I would love to chat with you about it, and would be honored if you joined my Di's Country INKers. Give me a shout at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can talk more about it.
Well a few years ago Patricia and I stalked each other, (we met on the bus going over to Disneyland/world/land…whatever in Orlando), and it was like once we met we kept running into each other and she was like "are you stalking me?" so every year at events we see each other all the time, and scream and make a spectacle of ourselves…well not as bad as Patricia and Denise but that is a story for another day…
But last year at Convention I met my very first stalker, she even admitted it. Every morning and during the day we would run into each other, and what was cool is she lives in AZ, and Convention was in SLC. So anyway, she took our picture together, and was gonna send it to me, and then she forgot. 6 months later we are at Leadership in Phoenix, and I see her and she is like "remember me?" and my head is going oh my God Diana why don't you take the gingo bibloba pills so you can remember. Then she said I am your stalker from convention from outside the hotel, and ding ding my head rolodex flips to that memory and sure enough. So then we kept running into each other, and I even got to meet her BFF. So she finally sent me the picture, I think the police might find it handy for the restraining order…ha! Just kidding. I love it, and she is a hoot.
Kim and I outside the hotel in SLC.
Oh and MAMMa sent me this one of Tracy and I when we went out to eat, we went to this restaurant called 1130 Restaurant or something and it was soooo good, they had these Lobster lettuce wrap thingies. Oh and the smashed potatoes…I could eat them every day. I had to crop the picture, the way I was sitting and the drape of my sweater, I was broad as a barn.
Today I hung out with Ellie and Dottie, we went to lunch and then we went here and there, they are fun chicks to spend time with, and I actually got to meet Lori Barnett, we have met only online and it was so great to finally meet her and hug her neck.
So Eric cooked supper tonight, Tuesday Mike (Eric's HAB helper) comes over and they make the shopping list and go get the ingredients, and then on Thursday they cook. Eric is getting to be quite the little (all 6 feet of him) chef. We love Mike and hope he stays working with Eric for a long long time.
So that means I got a kitchen to clean up, so a quick scrapbook page to show you and off I go.
This is actually pictures of a good friend of mine and downline Karen and her adorable daughters, Simone and Tatum, don't you LOVE those names? And the names totally suit them. Isn't that funny about names?
I was trying to get the pictures to upload side by side, oh well. This is a 6×6 2 page spread.
Stamp Set: Vintage Labels, Batty For You, Autumn Harvest
Ink: Basic Black
Paper: Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White, Cast-A-Spell DSP
Misc: White gel pen, 1" circle punch
So when Stampin' Up! asks you to help them with displays (they asked all the Artisan Award Winners this year and we could say yes or no) they want certain things, scrapbook pages, cards, 3-d, and to help make the boards pretty and color pleasant, sometimes they will want you to use particular colors. This time they did not do that but they wanted certain things with different sets, so I had to do cards, 3-d and a 6×6 spread with the set Vintage Labels, and I must say this set would not immediately come to my mind as a scrapbook set, but I made it work. I used the mini little medallion stamp on the corners of my header, it kind of reminded me of the DSP. I love a challenge.
Well my other challenge is to get the kitchen cleaned up so off I go.
Have yourself a great Friday, Jeff and the neighbor "that's thinkin' with your dipstick Jimmy" are gonna have a horseshoe tournament on Saturday, they've been making flyers, digging pits, filling them with sand, putting in stakes, you name it. Busy little beavers.
Thanks for stopping in!
A horseshoe tournament?? I want to move to Arizona. I don't have any fun like that.
Make sure you post pictures of that event!
I wanna see Jeff getting a ringer!
I'm so glad you finally got to meet Lori B.! She's so fun!!! Miss you darling!
I think I might have to ask you to take the picture of you and me from Dec off your website… if you are gonna hand them over to the police so easily for those pesky restraining orders lol. Here I thought I could stalk you and get away with it.
I love the pics in the LO you did….another reason I should move to AZ…. you should see all the snow in the pics I took from our pumpkin hunt. We were in snow pants and parkas and touques (picture Bob and Doug).

I just love the fall layout. On the email feed the pages are side by side! I wondered if these are 12×12 or a different size? Did you crop the photos? Thanks for the wonderful things you share on your website.
This is one of the happiest days of my life :o, of course, Friday would have been the happiest day of my life had I seen this then instead of going to the sand dunes with my family…lol!! I look forward to stalking you in the future…..FYI, I have no criminal record, not even a parking ticket so no need to start now….lol!! You Rock!!
