Stampin' Up Catalogue Launch Open House - WARNING: Too many photos to even try counting!

It seems I am no longer a regular Blogger.  Sorry!  I do like to pop on here every so often and update you on what I have been up to though, that being my Stampin' Up! Catalogue Launch Open House!!  At the beginning of this month - the new Stampin' Up! Catalogues were released.  Some of you may be thinking "whoooopdy doooo!".  I beg to differ.  I love their products and can't live without them hehe.  With the help of a fantastic friend and fellow Demonstrator Rochelle, we put together this awesome event.  It took countless hours over many weeks to prepare for, and we had an absolute ball doing it!  So now I will let the pictures do the talking!
