Then Bonnie Egenton and I had our photos done in a photo booth...Die Cuts With a View had one in their stand. This was the beginning of a hilarious adventure !
American Art Stamp wasn't showing at CHA but they do have a new line of stamps from Florida artist & Calligrapher Joanne Fink. She gave me one and I replicated it in UTEE.
