My First SU Workshop!

Had my first Stampin' Up Workshop yesterday at my home.
We had the table filled. Poor Kerry from the MB couldn't make it- her little boy broke his arm that morning!
There were three other MB members though and some "old" customer/friends of mine from another Biz and my best buddy, Melanie!
Here are a few photos of the cards we made and a photo of exhausted ME!!!

Lori, Carol ( both from the Message Boards) and Patty showing off their creations!

Andrea, Susan (Message Board), my good buddy Melanie and her friend, Kate

Some of the "stuff" we used- sorry photo is so blurry! It is funny how you have it all neatly organized and then everyone starts working and materials are flying all over in a fun frenzy!!! Thanks to Melanie for cleaning all my stamps and putting them back in the cases. Gosh, you worked, Mel!

Part of my In Color Bundle Special! This was well liked! This offer is good to anyone through August! See August 1st post for details of "MY SALE"!

Cards we made:
Wings of Friendship, Hostess Level Two Stamp Set using the beautiful Melon Mambo!
They liked the color better in person rather than seeing it in a catalog!

Tall Tales/Animal Talk Card

I had lots of fun and can't wait till the next one! Thanks for coming ladies! Kerry, sorry you missed but will catch ya up!
Lorrie and Bridget you never showed up! ( just a joke from Lorrie). Lorrie, lives in Indiana and Bridget lives in Las Vegas but they were teasing that they were coming! Sure wish you could have been there, but maybe next time! It sure would be fun!

OH Carol, thank you so much! I think the exact same of you! Thank you for coming and thanks for showing us that great layout you did of the Circus. Hugs, Barb

It looks y'all had so much fun. I may try to put somethings together and host my own workshop. Thanks for all the help you offered!

Kerry said...

It looks like y'all had a great time-I knew you would! I wish I could have been there but my son need me then. His arm is currently in a hard splint and we are to see the Orthopedist for a hard cast in the next day or two. Thank you so much for your concern and your kind well wishes for my son. I will be at the next workshop and I am really looking forward to it! (We won't go to the park that morning so hopefully no fluky accidents :) See you soon!
