We did it!

I can't believe it's over! The fundraiser went smoothly, no hitches or major problems. I guess 4 months of planning paid off!  We had 29 ladies sign-up for this fun day and while we did miss our ultimate fundraising goal, we did raise $1,200 for the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life and everyone there had a great time! Here we all are holding our own personal copy of Paper Crafts Magazine Stamp It! special publication.  Here are some of the photos and more from the event.

I made all these fabric yo-yo's for the name tags. It was a little something extra for them to use as a cute addition to a creation.

This was one of the most coveted prize packs, probably because of the AWESOME stamp sets donated from Julee at Verve Stamps. The catch on this one was that only cancer survivors and current cancer fighters could enter their names for this prize. Congrats to Paula Blackhall for winning not only the package but in her fight with breast! Our other cancer winners (as I had little things for them as well) were Terri Mehan and Erica Mathias. The other prize a ton of ladies wanted - the free night's stay in a King Jacuzzi room at the Holiday Inn Hilliard! Who doesn't want to escape life for a night?

Busy, busy, busy!!!
