…in more ways than 1!
Today is the sneak preview of my new set, Special Day, at All That Scraps! And if you scroll past my sample, I have a pic from a very special day this past weekend! It was sooo much fun!
My sneak preview card here was actually sneaked on Saturday, a little early, at the 3rd Annual WNY Spring Fest in Buffalo, NY. This was my shoebox project for the ladies at my tables to make. Tracy had the best idea this year to not only hold a shoebox swap in the morning, but in the afternoon as well. With some careful planning, she managed to seat everyone so they didn’t get the same projects twice and we came away with double the fun!
I used two of the images in the set here along with two sentiments (one was on the inside and I forgot to get a pic).
I love the ribbon woven through the punched border…that was a trick I saw on my friend Cheryl’s blog. Thanks, Cheryl!
You can check out the other samples made with this set on the ATS blog. And check back each day for new sneak peeks!
And here’s another pic from our special day on Saturday. This was taken after the day’s big event was over and after clean-up, shopping at the fab Buffalo stamp store, and our dinner out at My Tomato Pie. We were pretty tired but look how happy we are! I actually lifted this pic from Tracy’s blog since my pics are still unpacked, but I figure since she copied it from my camera, it’s all good. lol!
This is only a few of the ladies who attended (there were almost 100 from NY, PA and Canada!) and I think each of us in this pic attended every year so far.
This is Melissa (Tracy’s SIL), Tracy (our fab hostess), Lisa, Michele, Cheryl, me, and Karen. What fun ladies to spend the weekend with! More of our friends were still inside eating…I wish I had taken more pics at the event. sigh. Tracy and I are wearing the cutest shirts she made for the helpers so they could easily be spotted for anyone who needed help. She thinks of everything!
