Ginger from Down to Details put the event together and made it such a memorable time for everyone. I met so many wonderful people and ended up spending most of my time with friends from my LSS, Scrapbook Oasis; go figure! There were tons of sponsors and tons of prizes for everyone. Since it was such a huge success, they've already announced that it will now be an annual event and ya know I'll be there next year!
I also participated in a charm swap and can I just say FABULOUS beyond description! Take a look at this baby! I LOVE IT!
I've never done one before & didn't really know what to expect. We ended up with only 13 participants, but everyone made several charms so the bracelet filled out nicely. One of the girls took the event logo and put it on shrink plastic and added some bling. When she posted a photo on the event's ning site, I was so excited to know that I was going to get one. This is such a wonderful memento of the event. We all made enough charms so that the instructors and Ginger also received a full bracelet. The swap organizer also made one to auction for charity and raised over $500 for the John Tracy Clinic. It's a non-profit organization that provides free services to families of children with hearing loss.
A special thank you to everyone who filled out one of the ATC's that I distributed. I'm putting together a Rolodex project for the event and will be working on it this weekend and will post photos soon. If I missed you and you'd still like to give me an ATC, pls send me an email or post a comment and I'll give you my mailing address.
Can't wait for this weekend to pour over my bankers box of goodies from the event!
