Happy Birthday to Crafty Scrapper.......

This past Saturday was the stores 3rd anniversary, and boy did we celebrate. Everyone received a birthday bag with goodies, and throughout the day we gave LOTS of goodies away. I was so excited when Caroline with Maya Road, called and said she wanted to come down and do make-n-takes. I even learned a few new things.


After lunch I told her husband, David, that he and my husband were going to do a special make-n-take with the metal. I told him to go pick some chipboard out, he came back with one of their new Maya Road People chipboard albums, and the excitment on his face was priceless. Wish I could say the same about my husband! At first they were a little scared of all the tools, but then they really got in to it, and actually created some awesome metal chipboard men.
Don't they look proud of themselves! Some of the ladies bought chipboard people and took their example to copy....you guys are setting a new trend....lets here it for the guys, HOORAY!
After Caroline, David and her adorable son, Noah left, Cheryl and Megan with Ten Second Studios came to demo their metal products. I LOVE to be around these two, they are creative, funny and have the best personalities.
Everyone got into the metal, some already had tools and have never taken them out of the package. Before they left they gave away a $100 tool kit for a drawing, Gena was the lucky winner! If you have not tried the metal, they are coming back May 17th to teach 2 different classes, be sure and check out the events page on the web site.
Gail was quite proud of her frame, these went on the celebrate canvas that everyone received at the crop.
We even had time to celebrate Stacie's birthday, I think she was turning 21! HAPPY BIRTHDAY STACIE....WE LOVE YOU!
And what a great end to a fantastic weekend, I opened the Sunday paper and saw that I had received business of the week. Thanks to all of you wonderful customers for supporting us the last 3 years.
