Maple Memories is hosting a Pink Pajama Party Crop the weekend of Oct 24-26th, 2008. This will be an all inclusive weekend, with meals, snacks, and beverages provided, in addition to being a fundraiser for Breast Cancer and Women's Health issues. And, of course, there will be FABULOUS prizes!! The crop will begin at noon on Friday and continue through 4pm on Sunday (that's 52 HOURS!!). Registration will open up at NOON on August 1st and there will only be 12 spots available. Reservations will be taken in the order they are received (both by phone and email). Mark your calendars now!! The cost of the weekend will be $160.00 per person, with Maple Memories donating a portion of this directly to the Pink Pajama Party Fund for Breast Cancer patients. We will email the registration forms to the first 12 people to contact us and then the payment, along with the form, will be expected within one week in order to hold your spot (and yes, we will start a waiting list in case these aren't returned).

This weekend will be slightly different from Hosted weekends in the past, since it is also a fundraiser. There are events going on in town, including a March down Main Street in honor of survivors and to bring awareness and an event on Saturday night known as "The Pink Pajama Party" that we will be attending. In addition, we will be asking those attending to raise funds in a Crop-a-thon format (pledges based on number of pages completed or you can get outright donations). We will be giving away prizes for the top 3 fundraisers. You will also receive one door prize ticket for each $15.00 that you raise. Each participant will also receive a pair of Breast Cancer Awareness Pajamas to wear to the Pink Pajama Party event in McPherson!!

Flair and Frills will also be providing manicures, pedicures, and/or massages during the weekend. The best part!!?? They will be donating $5.00 from every service to our cause!! More details on how to schedule these services will come with your registration.

*FUN, FUN, FUN!!!!

Dude...of course I am reading IT!!! I miss you guys too:( It's just not the same going in and being a nobody! I do have to say, things are a little out of whack, I was looking for the tiny black brads and the store that has a lot of almost everything didn't have any. I asked her when they should be getting some more in and she said they had just placed an order and didn't even order them...WTH?!?

I absolutely love the Scrapbook 101 layout!!! Soooo cute! I can't wait for Heidi's new lines!!!

I am enjoying Florida, the weather has been rainy, but spectacular!

I'll let you know when I update my blog with pics and stuff!
