And we had FUN FUN FUN

And our daddy didn't even have to take the T-bird away... Hey everyone.. What a fun time you missed (well most of you.. some of you were there !!) on Saturday.. We stamped and laughed and then stamped a little more... Here's a few fun pictures.. Sorry I didn't take more, I was busy making sure everyone was having a good time, putting the food together... you know, fluffing...

Krystal, Rochelle, Teresa & Donna working on their shoe box swaps..

Nancy, Michelle, Kari, Jenn and Chris working on their Shoe Box Swaps..

Jenn, Chris & Rochelle

Krystal, Kari, Donna and Michelle (it looks like Donna and Michelle are multi-tasking.. chit chatting and stamping... )

This was so much fun... There was a total of 12 of us so the group was nice and intimate, so there was lots of laughing and chatting going on... So what did you miss? Well for 1 SallyLynn and all of her expertise with Copic Markers, Ranger inks, Glimmer Mist etc... Wow Sally, you're a wealth of information and I learned sooooooooooo much... I have posted a link to Sally's blog off to the right.. Please be sure to head on over and check her out.. She's awesome.. I knew there was a reason why I let her come... LOL :) Sorry Sally, just had to squeeze that in there... LOL

We started off the day making all of the swaps. I'm still in the process of cleaning my stamp room from the past couple weeks of prep and getting all of my swaps together so by the end of the week I'll be posting all 11 swaps (I didn't manage to get one of SallyLynn's but she has her's posted on her blog.. what a cute bunny).. Then we ate.. Lunch was yummy (and included so no one had to worry about bring food with them).. After lunch we all finished up our Shoe Box Swaps and then made the 3 fun projects Teresa and I planned... These too will be posted later this week..

So what did everyone get for coming? Besides an entire day of stamping and laughing? Well, let me tell you, they all left with some awesome prizes.... Their goody bag consisted of 5 sheets of 6x6 Basic Grey paper (either Two Scoops or Stella Ruby), a packet of Dew Drops (flame & water mixed together) and a yard of the new Stampin Up Polly Twill Chocolate Chip ribbon.. Pretty cool ha?

Then they each received a raffle prize.... The following companies graciously made a donation to our wonderful day of SCS stamping... Here goes. Please go check out their websites because I highly recommend each of these companies.. Their customer services is impecable and I just love everything they have to offer..
