Cool Springs Baptist Church Crop

Hi Stampers!
So how did you spend your Friday?  I had a great day stamping and sharing convention goodies and swaps with a friend and neighbor.  Thank you Sandy for a fun afternoon.  Let's do it again soon!

Last Saturday I attended the second annual crop at Cool Springs Baptist Church in Jasper Ga as a vendor.  It was a long day but lots of fun.  The ladies worked on their scrapbooks all day and I was blown away by the creativity.  There was a journaling class taught by Dixie Stewart and a photography class taught by her husband Alvin.  I attended both and enjoyed them thoroughly.  
During the event the ladies rotated to each vendor's table to do a Make and Take.  I had so much fun with mine.  We did a mini fold out album and the ladies loved it.  We laughed and had a good time as many of them tried the Stampin' Up! Color Spritzer for the first time.  

This is the Mini Album they made.  It was inspired by an album I saw online.  I changed it's size so I could make it from 8 1/2 X 11 card stock.  The Fun Flower die is one of my favorites.  Yes it is the same flower on one of my convention swaps.  

Remove the belly band.  The ladies laughed at that technical term.  :)  

Both sides fold out.  I left a place for them to journal since I think journaling is so important.  This is my good friend MarySue and I walking the Avon 3-Day Walk in 2000.  The 60 miles were grueling but we came away with so many memories both funny and inspirational.

Close up of the center.  You can see where we used the Spritzer tool.

This is a second album I made as an example.  This one is a bit more vintage.  

Pictures of my mother, brother and I.  Won't say how many years ago but isn't it fun to scrap those older pictures.

Close up...Love the Remember When Stamp form the Word Play stamp set.

Only one person could take home my door prize but each person went home with a goodie bag.  It included a Summer Mini Catalog, DSP, several yards of assorted ribbon, a post it note holder (idea from Angie Kennedy Juda's video), and as always...chocolate.  I had to laugh when one of the ladies asked if chocolate is a Stampin' Up! "thing"  
I guess it is.  :)

The orders the ladies placed came in today.  I made a thank you card for each of them.  One they can use again when they need a thank you card.
I'll save that for tomorrow.
