Memories of our fun day on the 31st July at the Springwood Bowls Club for our Paper Angels Annual Christmas Card Charity Workshops.
Paper Angel Ursula deserves a big round of applause for this day... it was fabulous!
The Springwood Bowls Club was a lovely venue, we had a huge room, great lighting, and the convenience of the bistro right beside us for lunch. Oh and I can't forget the yummy treats we had for Morning Tea!
Thanks to all the Paper Angels with a big contribution from Ursula & Liz there were gorgeous displays to get lots of Inspiration from and take photos of...
Cards for Troops was a new addition introduced this year and WOW what a fabulous response we had. Thanks to everyone who donated to this wonderful mission to send cards to our Troops so they have something nice to write a message on to send back home to their loved ones this Christmas. Special Thanks at the Springwood event to Di Greenaway for her 108 cards donated, and to Barbara Thompson for her 40 cards added to our Cards for Troops Box...
I had 7 of my lovely customers join me on the day,
we shared many a laugh, it was a tonne of fun!
Colleen, Sonia & Carla
Di & Barbara
Paper Angel Sam demonstrated for her first time at an event,
here she is with one of her guests Carla.
We made absolutely gorgeous projects featuring the 'I Wish' Simply Scrappin' Kit
and getting our hands on the BIG SHOT!
Each project gave the opportunity to try something new.
My Card design was even included... shucks!
Using the Colour Instructions and having all tools required within arms reach we had such a relaxing day cruising through the projects at our own pace.
Thanks goes to Liz for all her wonderful time and effort she puts into these special Paper Angels events. Behind the scenes Liz puts in so many hours and is so dedicated to the success of our events, she is truly our 'Guardian' Angel. Thanks Liz.
Congratulations goes to Barbara T for 1st prize in the Card Comp, and 2nd and 3rd prize Congrats goes to Di G. (Both my ladies of course, chuckle, yes I am proud!)
Of course, there was the now very famous raffle prizes! Stampin' Up! again shone through with their generosity of fabulous product donated for our raffles, making up 5 bright beautiful Prizes to be won!
My table nearly had a clean sweep of the lot! Winning prize 1 was Colleen, prize 2 Barbara, prize 3 Di, prize 4 Barbara again (lucky girl), and there was a glimpsing moment when we all gasped as prize 5 was announced, the winner being Carla... but much to Carla M from our tables disappointment *sob sob*, it was not her, but rather Carla Sam's guest. Congrats to all 5 winners of these lovely prizes.
I couldn't resist this cute photo of Barbara T with her 2 prizes, she's still flabbergasted to have done so well in the raffles. Lucky they were wrapped so pretty as she was worried her husband might think she'd been shopping again when she got home with so many new products! LOL
And the finished projects of the day of course...
