Guess what WE did today?!?!

Sarah and I (with the help of the "attic" gals too!) have spent the last four days making 1,080 kits for WORLD CARD MAKING DAY!!! YAHOO!!!

Lemme tell ya - I would be totally fine if I NEVER saw a card again - or so I thought - and then Jodie brought in the two cards that she is doing for her FREE make-n-take on the 6th of October - they are SO CUTE!!

So, we all got together (minus Debbie - she wasn't feeling real well) and made 23 of the 40 cards tonight - in TWO hours. We wanted to "dry run" through it and HOPEFULLY get out all the kinks and bumps!! Hopefully we did that!! We hit a few hiccups - but I think it will be a BLAST!! Renee (smarty pants) finished ALL 23 cards in LESS than an hour and a half - followed closely by Kristy - Kelly and Kelli tied and had to leave early - (kiddos!) - I finished LAST and only finished ELEVEN cards in an hour and 1/2!! And I was the one that thought twenty cards in two hours would be a "piece of cake"!! WRONG!! But, just know that you'll have PLENTY of time to complete your cards!! NO RUSHING!!! (renee!:) )

I don't know WHY Kelly always RUNS from the camera!!!


few things that you'll want to make sure and bring with you to WCD:

*Adhesive "runner" (we will provide you with glue dots and pop dots where needed!)

*BONE FOLDER - A MUST!!
*Some fine tipped scissors!!

*Your camera!!! (in case you don't finish your cards and want to take a photo!)

Other than that - don't bring other items - it will only slow you down!!! You could bring your tool tote with you if you insist - but theres not a lot of room at each "station"!!

We had a BLAST!! Lots of talking, laughing and just FUN to cut loose!!! Maybe too much fun!! We learned which card we loved the most and which ones we never want to see again!! The boys even got to do a few of the cards - and they approve!!




After all of the card making was over - Jodie brings out these BEAUTIFUL cupcakes!!! She recently completed a cake making course and baked us YUMMIE WHITE ENORMOUS CUPCAKES with PINK FROSTING with DAISIES made out of MILK CHOCOLATE!! OHHHHH MYYYYYY GOOOODNESS!!! They were AMAZiNG! Thank you SOOOOO much Jodie - they were GGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGreat!!! (tony the tiger for ya there!)








Something new that came in today:



WE HAD to take a minute to open the box from Bazzill - it's the Creative Escape Idea book from Heidi Swapp and the gang that puts on Creative Escape EVERY year!! They only make a limited number of these - so if you want it - you'd better get it now while you can!!! They'll go FAST!!!



Here's a picture of the $10.00 make and take that Renee has re-created from Fancy Pants - she'll be doing it while supplies last on Saturday beginning at 9:00AM!! ALL of the proceeds from this make-n-take will go to Susan G. Komen!! Come out and support a GREAT cause and make a beautiful page at the same time!!!


Also - Janas Survivor class on Sunday STILL has a few spots remaining!! This class is $20.00 and ALL proceeds for it go to Victory in the Valley!! Jana is even donating her "earnings" from that day to VITV as well!! You will complete BOTH pages of this layout - using the new GLITZ line - "Hot Mama"! Don't miss this class - it's a great way to honor the "survivor" in your life!!!


(I will post a picture of the layout tomorrow!)

Scrap*Pink ladies - I'll be updating you with some "teasers" tomorrow - I PROMISE!!!

the card party was a blast! was a nice "break" after having kids in car all weekend and home all day for inservice!

and why do i run from the camera?? i HATE having my pic taken!! it's like a camera phobia or something I know but have you noticed that most of the pics of me on this blog make me look like i'm about to kill someone or something (which i'm not because I'm really a nice person - just ask my kids...well don't ask them they got grounded this weekend...you can ask anyone i work with...just not Martin...ok...ASK MY MOM she still loves me even if i dragged her to a ton of scrapbook stores, getting lost each time!).
