Pictures from our 3rd Fundraising Crop

To start off, Dana and I would like to thank each and everyone of you for your continued support.  Every time we host this event it gets bigger and bigger, and without you this event wouldn't be possible, so THANK YOU!

Below are some images we took throughout the day...

We were lucky to have Laura (our Massuese) join us again, she took care of all our knots and stiffness, and I'm almost positive that she has magical fingers.  We have informed her of our next crop in May (5/3/14 - 5/4/14), and she is excited to come to that one as well.  She told me during one of my massages that we are the nicest group of ladies she has ever met and is honored to be invited back.

We also had a Cricut station as well as a Big Shot table, and I think this crop they were used more so than the others.
We would like to thank all those that brought cartridges so we could all share, and have received praise for certain cartridges.  Please let us know if you will be bringing cartridges to the next one so we can update the list of available ones so you can plan your pages in advance.  We understand not everyone can purchase this equipment but we are glad to share it with you and help you with any questions you may have about them.

And where would we be without our trusty, fun, and spirited Stampin Up "Make and Take" Rebecca.  Dana and I haven enjoyed working with Rebecca to help us put on this event for the last two years and we look forward to hosting many more with Rebecca.  She created two "Make and Takes" for the day, one was a Fall Themed scrapbooking page which allowed us to use stamps, ink, punches and ribbon.  The second "Make and Take" was a Birthday Card with Fall colors, it had a lot of parts to it but was pretty easy to assemble.  Here are some pictures of the two projects we did...

Scrapbooking Make and Take
if you are interested in learning how to make them please contact Rebecca.

 She offers classes monthly at her home or yours, and all the information is updated on a daily/ weekly basis so you should check out her blog often.  Just click here.

We were thankful for all the donations we received for the Door Prize table and would also like to congratulate the winners.  We hope that you enjoy them and if you have anything you would like to bring for the next one please let us know so we can have a donation letter ready for you as well as your extra door prize tickets.

Dana and I truly look forward to seeing you all every crop and hope that you all attend in May.  We are working on a few surprises!  In the mean time keep on crafting and enjoy the rest of the photos we took throughout the day.

Happy Cropping,
Dana & Cindy

Thank you for another Successful Crop!

Thank you everyone for yet another successful crop.  We're so glad that everyone had a great time, New ideas were given, make and takes were beautiful.

Here are some photos from the day.

The Scrappers at the crop worked diligently.

Violet and Deborah were two of our new croppers, Dana found them at A.C. Moore during one of her visits for supplies.  She went down the next isle, saw them and told them about the crop.  They were so excited that they went home and registered for the crop.  We were so happy to have them here, hope to see you ladies in November!
A few of our own Squad Members!  They are a husband and wife team who loves working on cards.  Patrick is one of our retired Chiefs and a current ridding member with our organization.  His wife Sharon helps as well ride squad calls. 
 We had a personal Masseuse available to relieve those tense shoulders and backs.  Thank you Laura for your amazing fingers!  You really had rave reviews, heck a few of us went twice! We look forward to seeing you at our next one in November.  If you are interested in having Laura take care of you I've included her contact information below:
Everlasting Arms Massage
Laura Warren CMT, Owner

 Sharita!  From Escape Scrapbooking, was there with her WHOLE Store.  She has the most amazing collection of Joelee's as well as individual papers and sets.  We are looking forward to her being at the next crop in November.
Check her out on Facebook
 Creative Memories was there with all her goodies. 
So was Rebecca from Stampin Up!  Both ladies held "Make and Take" Workshops... One of the "Make and takes" was a Mother's Day Card design; the other was a scrapbooking layout.  Both were gorgeous and so creative.  Can't wait to see what Rebecca come up with for the November 23rd Crop!
There weren't just scrapbooker's at the Crop, we had some amazing Artist.  She was hard at work making custom hand painted cards as well as a custom canvas.  Her work drew crowds of on lookers.  So amazing, and beautiful.
We believe she owns "Colour me Baby" Her name is Michelle Ferrari (Bethlehem, PA)
 Here is another shot of the scrapbooker's hard at work creating their memory pages.  The Spring colors made the room bright and airy.  It also brought a calm sense of happiness to everyone. 
 Look at that Shirt!  This shows who our repeat croppers are, these shirts were made for our first crop and a lot of the ladies where wearing them!
Keep an eye out, we are looking into possibly getting them for the next crop in November. 
Scrapbookers' hard at work.

Attention to Detail is key to this amazing artist.

Serious Scappers' Table!  LOL
