Arlington, TX Shoebox Swap

This past weekend, I went to a shoebox swap in Arlington, TX! I had a BLAST meeting new friends and putting faces to some fab ladies I have been corresponding with by e-mail for so long!

There were 45 card swappers there as well as some awesome helpers that made the event run SO smoothly! Thank you to everyone who attended! It was SO great meeting all of you and I can't wait until the next time!

Kim (the GENIUS behind My Favorite Things Stamps) and I
Jen (genie1314) and I
Me and Susan (susiestampalot)
Karen (gamblemom) and I
Me and Kendra (scrapstampindiva)

Jessica (knightrone) and I
me and Shannan (steubner)
Me and Jenn (jbalcer)
Carole (trucarma) and I

My shoebox swap card. It was supposed to be a ten minute card. *snicker snicker*
My shoebox swap card, name tag and "table decoration". Everyone was supposed to take a pack of gum as a giftie. I don't think they did. LOL Look at all that gun that is left!
A close up of my name tag. The grey piece is popped up.
This is the door prize that I won. It was from Cammie! Thank you, Carolyn!
This is a gift from Karen (gamblemom). She was my room mate (and is a great friend) and we exchanged a gift. :)

We went to THREE stamp/scrapbook stores and this is ALL I bought while we were there! WOW! LOL I wish there would have been more to choose from!

I wish I would have taken more pictures! I met so many more amazing women!
Next time... :)
