Thank You x 1,000,000!!

Wow--we had a blast at CHA!! The response to Scrapbook Royalty and the charitable work we are trying to do thorugh our love of crafting really hit home with many of the vendors and manufacturers. They donated so much stuff to us that we filled my Camry, Gloria's Suburban, and Danelle's car!! And that was just on Wednesday becuase we have been collecting donations all week long! I took some pics of some of the loot from my car and of a fewe of the vendors giving us goodies. We met so many awesome, generous people--it was simply amazing. We came home excited, emotionally and physically exhausted, and just bewildered at the response--it was 1,000,000 times more than we had dreamed it would be!!

Thank you for your comments on my blog. I wasn't sure which blog you used so I thought I would try this one. I know I love glimmer mist. How do you use it????
I have just been spraying tags with it but would love any other ideas you might have.
thanks again for visiting
