Crafting with my best friend!

Yesterday afternoon a winter storm marched it's way into Calgary and that meant one thing...
A day of stamping!!!
What could be better right?
How about stamping with your best friend?!
Karen usually just watches me stamp when she's over but yesterday I convinced her to sit down and create with me! She truly is the bestest friend. She's so supportive and has a big heart.
Just the other day she gave me about 130 copic markers because she said she would never use them. She wanted them to have a good home! Well I was tickled pink to say the least!!!
Anyway, you came to see something right?
Well first up is the notebook that Karen created using some October Afternoon Designer Papers and a PTI set called All Booked Up.
I think she did a FABULOUS job! Don't you agree?! Hope I can get her to stamp with me more often!!!
Here is a notebook I created for my briefcase. I've used some October Afternoon Designer Paper along with the PI girl It's Hip To Be Square. Love this sweet girl!
Thanks for stopping by today! It's supposed to be nasty again today so it'll be ANOTHER day of stamping! FUN Times eh?!
Have a wonderful Sunday!

She DID do a fantastic job on her book...looks like she's a seasoned stamper. Great job on yours, too...that's one of my favorite PI girls and I just love the way you broke up the sentiment into tabs. You know....I still use the peach, green and yellow one that you sent me. I took it to summer CHA and I use it to keep track of my DT and house-related to-do lists. Your notebooks rock!

Both of these notebooks are awesome. I always fiddle around with the spiral punch when I covering my books.....this is so much easier and looks beautiful.
