Goodbye Gypsy Crafter

This is me and my friend Kim Porter, a fellow demonstrator in Hawiian Ink .
We are at a little going away dinner for her. She and her husband Paco and their two girls are moving to Pananma City with the military. Kim is an amzing crafter. Just in the short time I have known her I have learned so many cool techniques. But most of all I have found another wonderful friend. That is what I have to say I love the most about Stampin' Up! is that since I became a demonstrator I have met so many wonderful people and all though we may all be alittle crazy for the hours we spend doing what we love and fussing over the littlest of details, at heart of most every demonstrator you will find that their is an incredible heart and a sense of fellowship that I thank God for everyday that I am blessed to be a part of this group.
Below is our fearless leader Lisa Curcio and Alice Hancock the queen of WOW! who joined us that evening among others to help send Kim off with all the love and suport to know that we are behind her as she moves to Pananma City and begins her business there!

This is the scrap/ journal tin I embossed for Kim, with Baroque Motiff and The My Kind and Dear Wonderful Friend stamp from "All Holidays Stamp Set. The belly band is with Georgia Peach paper and embossed with silver on the middle with Dreams De Jour. The Big Scallop is from my new Siz die ran through the BIG SHOT, love that thing. I was very happy with the way this tin turned out every stamp on here is a combo of my favorites!

I made this one one half scrap tin and journal tin. What do you think?
Well ,although Kim may not be here physically at out group meetings, I know we will definately feel her spirit among us and miss her little hicups! Check out her blog at
