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.

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!

My card base is done with Bazzill white CS and 5.5" square. All DPs are from Basic Grey: Euphoria, Wisteria, and Eva. While stamping with some friends, my GF Kellie brought along this great sentiment stamp so I had to run out and buy it for myself! It matches so perfectly with Magnolia stamps because they are angels. Oh, it is a Penny Black stamp called "Angel" if you are interested.
There's nothing much to my card but I used two of my Sizzix circle dies and my Marvy punches (pink and purple) to mat the sentiment. Both the circle mat and the sentiment with Tilda are popped up with foam tape, and I added a butterfly charm.
Have a wonderful week and I thank you for stopping by again today to visit with me and for all the wonderful comments you leave me that keep me encouraged. Now I'm off to blurfing so I can get some inspiration from our wonderful crafting gurus!
