November 2016 Madison OnStage

By | Stampin' Up! Events | No Comments

So I started to write this post last November but I kept putting it off because I had so many pictures to share I just didn’t know where to start. Editing photos is not my idea of fun.

More on that in a minute. I had such a blast at the Stampin’ Up! OnStage Event in Madison, WI that I don’t even…
