Yesterday's post was dedicated to our lives.
Today it's about the crop :)
As I mentioned it was for the Heart and Stroke foundation, which is close to my heart as I have heart disease, and so does a lot of my family.
I am no photographer, but wanted to document my time there. So bear with me, teehee.
Here is a long shot of the event. Yes that is a new born baby in the photo. Actually there were 2 babies there. They were quiet and didn't cause a problem.
There was even a 6 year old girl there that could scrap with the best of them. As I was nonchalantly walking around checking out every one's work, I came across this little girl who was scrapping up a storm.
I asked her if I could see some of her pages. With the biggest smile she started at the front of her album, and showed me every page with pride :)
I asked her if she was going to stay the whole time (it lasted till midnight) Yes I am she replied. What a cutie. Here is our sign Lynne and I made for our table. We called ourselves "The Paper Flirts". Lynne wanted so bad to win the best display. It was a survivor theme. She got tiki torches and put in paper flames, she made us wear black shirts and gave us all red matching bandanna's. They got a large cauldron to put our named torches in. Sadly for her we didn't win, teehee. But a news crew came by our table and interviewed us and took our pictures.
Here is my group. Crystal, Marianne, Dana, Barb, Denise, Lynne and me, but I'm taking the picture so I'm not in it :)
Here is my work area. Yup not anymore space left then when I am at home.
I was getting anxious thinking on what to bring for materials, never mind which pictures to bring. So I had a little talk with myself and reminded myself that this is suppose to be fun. So I took some projects that I wanted to finish up and that was that :D
They had classes going on during the day. I was late in taking an altered tin case class. I would have loved that one. I did do a card though. It is on the table at the back, the pink and brown one. I forgot my sanding block so Ashley came by with her boyfriend and brought me it, so sweet of her.
There was also massages going on $5.00 for 10 minutes. I have never had one before so I went. It kind of hurt actually. Not sure if it was suppose to. My spine also cracked, lol. I was thinking, this is a massage not a chiropractor appointment, teehee. But my back did feel better at the end.
We also got snacks, a nice lunch and supper. There were draws and contests throughout the evening as well. At the end of the evening they asked us to write down our input for next year, on what they could improve on. They also told us the tickets are going up next year by $10.00, so the price will be $65.00 a ticket.
A few of the women told me that I have to teach some classes next year. I told them if I am paying $65.00 for a ticket I am there to do my stuff, not teach a class, lol.
I did make hubby a cute Anniversary card while I was there.
I got the idea from Valita's Designs. The shading on my heart should have been lower down I think.
Don't you just love my rack, lol. Hubby enjoyed the day with the girls. Actually they went out. Hubby bought this TV to play his video games on, and daughter Ashley bought herself an IPhone. Like father, like daughter.
Today was spent in my robe all day. I even took a nap this afternoon.
I was so lazy today. My case with last nights stuff is still sitting in the front porch.
How was your weekend? I hope it was a creative one.
