I want to start this post by saying how much I appreciate my team. They really came together and helped me out so much. In fact at a team meeting when we were going over some details and finalizing some to do items I said, "My event." One of my turtles corrected me and said, "Our event." Totally agree. I was able to spend time with those who needed me and focus on the time line of the event.
Before the big day I had several ladies come over an help me with the Goodie bags. Here they are on my kitchen counter.
Laura had helped me stamp the tags. So did Elizabeth and Francesca.
I was so pleased with the turnout for the crop. Here's a view of the room.
I hope that everyone that attended the event enjoyed it and got a lot of scrapbooking done. My friend Carla got a lot of her Disney album done. Here she is scrapbooking away in her own little scrapping spot.
I was also amazed by the vendors at the event. A new scrapbooking store in Gulf Shores came to it and had a mini store set up. Here is Anne with one of the croppers.
Panera Bread donated some delicious bagels and pastries. Here's Amanda enjoying a bite.
I have to say that the classes that were offered were fantastic. Here's one of my turtles learning to etch on glass.
The cool part was how Marcie used the negative to do the etching and then the positive to make a cute framed monogram.
Barbara with the finished product.
The food that we had was delicious. Santa Fe Grill in Mobile donated the tacos. Many of you thought they were homemade and not from a restaurant. They were so yummy. And the pizza was donated by Papa Johns. Dinner was specially made by my husband Steve. Jambalaya is one of his best recipes and he did not disappoint this crowd. The ladies from Louisiana kept asking him where he was from since he could make a Cajun dish so well. LOL.
So that's why we are turtles.
Here's a lovely lady that would be a great turtle. Perhaps this is the month she says yes. What do you think Carmen?

Scrapping Frenzy was there too. Here's the group. Two ladies were cropping too.
Well that's it for now. I'll post again soon.
