We had a handmade items for sale table. This photo was was taken before we had finished setting up but you can see some of the items we had for sale. Julie had made some gorgeous little notepads, I'd decorated some rulers, made hairbands and brooches. Julie had also made the oh so cute sheep bookmarks and I'd made the monster ones and froggies. The bookmarks went down a storm! In fact all the handmade items did. We had a Free Door Prize Draw to win an exclusive Stampin' Up! bag, ruler and a stamp set.
There were 15 prizes for the raffle!! ALL donated. A HUGE thank you to Karen & Phillip Kebby of Churchview Joinery, Wimborne for donated the 2nd prize of £40 Stampin' Up! vouchers (you can visit Karen's blog here). Another MASSIVE thank you to Glyn & Lyn Bagley for also donating 4 other prizes to the raffle plus a cash donation and 2 bottles of wine donated by a customer of Karen's. First prize was for over £100 worth of Stampin' Up! Products, second Prize - £40 Stampin' Up!

Julie was running this table and as usual did a grand job. Here was the Make & Take I designed...
For those that didn't have the time to wait or wanted to make more at home we made up packs to buy with instructions which was our 'Make & Take-Aways'. They went down really well and we sold all 55 of them!
We had an information table with catalogues to browse and order forms, recruitment packs and leaflets on hosting a home workshop and earning FREE products for being a Hostess. And finally we had our Demo table. Here's Helen setting up...Helen and I were demonstrating the Big Shot - our new favourite toy. If you've been following my blog over the past week you can probably guess what I demo'd. The plan was to demo the Milk Carton Die but with my lovely daisies and Bonnet on the table it was rude not to get my Daisy Die out and show how I put them together. If you're new to my blog you can see what I've created here and here along with a tutorial. Helen used the very gorgeous Wallpaper Embossing Folder and Fun Flowers Die along with the buttons sizzlits.
And the final amount we raised for Langside School and their Mini Bus Fund was....
So all in all it was a fantastic day! The weather was absolutely glorious and obviously everyone was out making the most of the beautiful weather in the afternoon but even so, the end result was well worth all the effort we had all put into raising money for such a worthwhile cause.
Myself, Julie, Helen and my Mum would like to thank everyone who came along and supported us on Sunday- customers, fellow demonstrators, Langside School staff & pupils and everyone that came in by chance to see what we were up to. We chatted with so many people through the day and we all enjoyed ourselves immensely!
Thank you for sticking with me on this very looooong post. I'm full swing now for this Sunday's Holt Hoot!!! See you real soon! Jo
