Four days of scrappin' fun! In a nutshell: The bus tour was a huge success! 108 ladies on two buses toured five Orange County stores, shopping at each one, having a lot of fun! We encouraged the bus tour passengers to create cards to be donated to the Children's Hospital of Orange County so parents, doctors and hospital staff members have cards on hand to give to their young patients at a moment's notice.
I was honored to have had two of my cards chosen by two stores for recognition - and scrap prizes! for my greeting card designs.
Not only that, but the Bus Tour passengers and Lake Forest-based scrapbook manufacturer me & my BIG ideas (MAMBI)teamed up and donated roughly $5,000 to CHOC. MAMBI prepared kits of scrap supplies valued at $75 and bus passengers gave a $25 donation to CHOC for each one. MAMBI then matched the bus tour's donation! A HUGE thanks to everyone who took part!
At CKU, I took some great classes and learned a lot of time-saving and product use tips. The projects were wonderful and I was lucky enough to win some great prizes! Nan and I were recognized for our Sponsor-themed poster ... scrap celeb Ali Edwards said it was the best one she had ever seen. Wow!!!!
Now, gotta get some sleep before I start thinking about 2009!
