I've almost recovered from our time in Anaheim this weekend at the first Scrapbook Expo of the year! If you didn't already know, Charity Wings is hosting the crops at all 13 Scrapbook Expo's this year. Add to that a rocking, fun filled booth with I must say the best Make and Take at the Expo, and a very special guest Suzi Blu! I just love spending time with Suzi, she is so talented, she makes me want to create fun art! Which is how it should be, art should be from the heart and soul and it should make you smile and want to create more art!
We used these awesome new products by Faber Castel, my favorite were the Watercolor Color Pencils. It's like Crayola Color Pencils gone wild! We used Suzi Blu's little petite doll stamps by Unity Stamps and these cool canvas tags by Maya Road.
We had 2 fantastic give aways going and I know the folks out there who participated are just dying to know if they won or not so I won't lead them on much longer.
If both of you would contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, we'll get those on their way to you. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us. Once we know the names of these fair ladies we'll get them posted!
I would like to take a moment and thank the wonderful volunteers who helped us out at the Expo over the weekend! They really are the heart of Charity Wings, without their help we could not function!
I would also like to thank all of the vendors that were so generous and donated items for the raffles each night for the crops. We were able to raise over $2,500.00for 2 really great charities. I'll get Elena to post their info.
The crops were a lot of fun, Friday and Saturday night I have to say the highlight for me was the Westcott Scissor Dance Off, this is new to the crops this year, we got the ladies up and shaking their...well you know what they were shaking and we gave away lots of great products from Westcott!
Both nights we also awarded 4 lucky people with either an ecraftwell machine or a Kodak Scanner Printer!
I have to say the prizes and raffles were just awesome!
