The Great Yosemite Stamp Escape recap…

Hi everyone!  It was my pleasure to be invited to teach for Memory Box at the Great Yosemite Stamp Escape the first weekend of May.

The weekend began Friday evening at the sponsoring store, The Cat’s Meow in Oakhurst, California, with registration, refreshments and ATC trading.  It was great to meet Sharon Fitzgerald, her assistant Melissa Cash, her awesome customers and shop in her wonderful stamp store!

Thank you to Lori Anne and Gary for driving me around! From the store we headed to the Pines Resort.  The late night view in the chalet was so cool, I loved how you could see the pines above the drapes.  Guess I was to tired to take a good photo though, but you get the idea.

Saturday and Sunday it was up early and off to class!  93 Fabulous and talented ladies to create with!

Here’s a view of the pines from the resort where the classes were held. It was gorgeous weather all weekend!

There were four instructors and we each taught the same class 4 times.  Here’s a photo of the last class. We shared a lot of laughs…a little ornery. lol

I’m the one in the striped blue and peach shirt, 3rd from the left.

Another after everyone was finished. It still makes me smile thinking about the fun times and meeting new stamping friends!

Before I close this post, I better show you the cards I designed for them to make.  We used Memory Box dies, stencils, paper, stamps and some poppystamps dies too.
