sooo we survived!!!

the craziness of another event!!  Wow, what a busy couple of weeks!  I did that fundraising crop at the beginning of the month, then the next weeked I was at a ladies retreat at my church, sooo great! At the retreat I was able to do this great little project with a number of the women there!

well a version of this project, the ladies were all VERY creative and this Prayer journal was different and beautiful for each one of them, as they received various papers from Bo-Bunny's Gabrielle line to play with!
I got to play with my new toy...

LOVING the Cinch... I think the ladies liked it too!!

Then the week was spent packing up the store for the Creative Gathering!!!
Here are just a few pics of our event-

REFENS Fundraising Crop

last Saturday I helped out at a fund-raising crop in Transcona area, some of the ladies were new scrapper's so it was lots of fun to do a Make n' take project with them, and give them an opportunity to "Play".
We used border punches, distress inks, distress tools, and we used the the new Double dot paper by Bo-Bunny!  It was great to meet you ladies,  I hope you raised lots of money!!

here is what we made!

here are some of the border punches we used...Martha Stewart, Fiskars &  EK Success

and here is the fabulous Double Dot paper...
I wanted to attach 2 samples with photos...but they are packed away for the Creative Gathereing- so will have to post those another day!

I hope you feel inspired:-)

Creative Gathering time...

2 times a year, we put on our Creative Gathering event - an opportunity to crop and create for 140 women ( we we would accept men as well if any came:-)  We offer classes, we offer food, and we offer GREAT shopping!! We keep and release many new lines of product for our CG ladies to take advantage of first - before it goes into the store. So in turn, we need to have many great samples of all the newest releases - so needless to say, blogging takes a back seat to creating and planning for this event... here are a few sneak peeks of some creations:-)

after the CG I will post full projects....or you can come and shop at the 55Plus on Friday, April 15th from 5pm-9pm and Sat, April 16th from 10am-4pm, and see everything for yourself:-)

I hope you feel inspired!
