Simon Says Create 2014

Hi everyone! I was lucky enough to get to go to Simon Says Create 2014! I can not tell you how wonderful it was. The classes were so amazing, the instructors were fabulous, and the Simon Says Stamp staff and volunteers could not have been more friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. And the giveaways…I can’t even begin to tell you how fantastic they were!!! Trust me, if they do it next year I’ll be back! I just want to share a few pics of “create” with you today and tomorrow.
