ISLAND GIRLS SUMMER SOCIAL

Hello and Happy Sunday Everyone! Wow! Yesterday was an awesome day with beautiful blue skies, lots of ladies, food, fun, demos, make n' takes, RAKS, shopping, prizes...all under one roof! Teri of Big Ideas from a Little Girl, put together a social gathering for local bloggers and did a fantastic job!!! Most of us have been just "visiting" our local friends through blogging, but yesterday, Teri made it possible for all of us to meet each other and share our common interests of crafting. Thank you so very much, Teri! I had a blast. I tell ya, Teri's is a petite gal but full of ideas and conducts many classes at her home, and coordinates events. She works full time but still finds the time to do so many extra curricular activities and she exhausts me! So be sure to check out her site if you haven't already done so and see her wonderful creations.

This is what I made for the 35 gals, half in pink and the other half in purple:



And this is all 35 of them:


I used my Sizzix Scallop Circle Bag die for these babies, stamped this cute Tilda image from the new Summer Collection kit with Memento Black Tuxedo on PaperTrey white CS, colored them with Copics, cut them out and mounted them on the sentiment from Penny Black, then adhered it to the boxes with foam tape.


I came home with wonderful RAKs, more craft supplies purchased at bargain prices, new ideas, a lesson in Copic coloring, a Just Rite Times New Roman Font set I won as a door prize, and many wonderful new friends. It was a day to be long remembered. Thank you also to the Rosario family (Barbie, Danny and Sunny) for allowing us to use their showroom (and it was air conditioned!!!).

Hope you all enjoyed your weekend and will be ready for a new week! Thank you for stopping by and I'll start blurfing again to come and say hello to you!

Norma said...

Cami, I am so impressed. Wow, what a lot of work you did on those gorgeous little goodies. You did a fabulous job there. 35 of them? Good grief! Love the scallop edges of those little babies and for the sentiments. Excellent colouring of all the Tilda's. Now, did you finish the Tilda's one a time, or did you do face, face, face..., then hair, hair, hair..., etc.?

Hugs.
Norma
