I fell in love with Stampin’ Up! because of the quality of the products… but the friends that came with are the icing on the cake.  My sweet Pals are my inspiration and together we say good-bye to or favorite products.  I have way too many favorites, so I will show the best fitting stamp for this month’s blog hop.  The banner says it all, “true love stories never end.”  They simply retire… LoL.  Then we fall in love all over again with the new products.

Now hop along for more mad craft skills with inspiring ideas from Max Conrad at Stamp to the MAX, stop number 12 on the Pals Retirement Party Blog Hop!  Thanks for “hopping” by!
