Island Girls Summer Social - Part 2 (Long Post!)

Happy Wednesday Everyone! It's hump day and I still don't have much energy to make anything yet although my hubby took me shopping on Monday to buy some craft supplies to keep me busy while he's away on a short business trip (again!) LOL!

I want to share with you some pics of our Summer Social that took place this past Saturday. Here's the group of gals that gathered for a day of FUN! (More details in my previous post.)

Upon entering and "registering" we received our name tag made by Claudette - Islander Girl, and also a goodie bag filled with DPs, flowers, ribbon, Post-It tags and a pen, Tombow Adhesive refill, package of cut out tags, and a Digi Kit from Mindy Terasawa.

And here are some RAKs I received:

Cards and Tags Mania - Kyoko ... thank you for the cookies, flowers, brads and your lovely Tilda card!
Paper Kisses - Chalsie ... love this HK tea bag holder!!!
and Twilight candy box - Barbie and Sunny Rosario (hostess)

Life is Sweet - Cheryl ... I ate the m&ms already!
Soft Subtles - Ali ... love this coaster plaque Ali! ...beautiful sentiment
A Place To Be Me - Joy (and Taelyn) ... CUTE mini gable box with candies!
Dawney's Delights - Dawn ...thank you for the images... so cute!
Crafty Hula Hands - Joni ...cute gum holder

Heartful Stamping - Rina ...Red and Black Ladybug candy holder ... thanks so much Rina! This is sooo cute!
Creative Expressions - Janis ..."Box in a Bag" with candies, cookies, and a scrubber ... thank you Janis!
Denise Loves Stamps - Denise ... Oh my! Thank you for another pair of your beautiful handmade earrings packaged with the cute HK face!

Now, as Teri said, "What's an event without free stuff!" Well, Teri was able to obtain prizes from various sponsors and purchased some items also so we could have a great goodie bag! Before the event concluded, Teri had a door prize drawing...and guess what??? Everyone won something! AND, two other lucky people won the grand prizes! I was so happy with my door prize... a Just Rite Times New Roman Font set! Perfect! Great addition to my ever growing collection.

Well, this is what can and did happen when you live in a small island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, surrounded by beautiful blue, blue skies, and blue/green water with tradewinds, majestic mountains, and a melting pot of every ethnicity! We are all sistahs and have fun together! Thank you for joining all of us through our blogs, as we get to enjoy your homeland through our visits there. ALOHA! and thank you for stopping by and reading this long story. Blessings to you all.
