The tables looked fabulous with the balloons. As everyone arrived they were handed a little goodie pack. Thankfully we had helpers with us. I had Helen, one of my downline. And Jen had Maria. Thank you ladies for all you hard work, we really do appreciate it.
And then there were the projects - two in the morning and one in the afternoon.
These little Sweet Treat Stationery Holders were something I designed especially for the event. It holds a 3x3 post it note pad and paperclips in the treat cup, although as an alternative it could hold choccies.The second project was this beautiful box and mini card using the Very Vintage Wheel and Vintage Vogue - gorgeous!
And finally the afternoon project - a DVD case covered with paper from the Sweet Pea Paper Stack and 3 cards made using 'My Sweet Pea' stamp set. And because we like to spoil our ladies, they ALL had a 'My Sweet Pea' set to take home with them!
Because of the amount of ladies we had there were 2 colourways - Rose Red and Pretty in Pink or Taken with Teal and Pumpkin Pie. This project was given in a lovely decorated bag which again I didn't have chance to photograph - darn & drat.
For lunch there was a fantastic buffet made by Shirley and Sue (our dear mums) and what an amazing job they did. I didn't get chance to take a photo of the scrummy food either, but here's a piccie of them in the kitchen preparing the feast. And of course there were cakes baked by my MIL - our crafting events wouldn't be the same without them! We had prize patrol throughout the day - a firm favourite with everyone. And to finish a raffle.Sorry it's such a long post, and I had so many more photo's to show you too. But to finish I would like to add yet another thanks to everyone who came along and for all the praise and feedback we've received. To know you all appreciate it drives us on to planning the next one - oh gosh, did I just say that??
I hope you enjoyed a glimpse of our Event and thanks for stopping by!
