World Card Making Day Celebration!

(Click on photo to enlarge)

I had an incredibly wonderful time celebrating World Card Making Day with some rabid papercrafters from Virginia (and a few from North Carolina as well) at All About Scrapbooks.

Virginia is a beautiful state with truly friendly people. I only wish I could have stayed longer.

Bob & his wife were gracious hosts who made Steven and I feel very much at home and valued.

The 25 gals who participated in the class were dedicated paper crafters who made the whole day fun, fun, fun! I can't remember everyone's names, but June & Sophie were just one of several mother-daughter attendees, Paula was my convenient side-kick (literally...I kept bugging her for samples) and I believe their resident card artist (yes, I'm still waiting Paula...please send me url!!).

Angie touched me when she told me how her military husband has kept every card she's ever made for him and Valerie was just a bundle of energy and enthusiam. Sue, who just moved from Alabama was excited to make new card-making friends, and Peggy, well you just made my day. After struggling all year with health issues, was well enough to attend the class with her daughter. You are a lovely person and are truly inspirational. I will always treasure the memory of this day and hope to see you all again one day.

So, going backwards a little, day 1 of my sojourn to Virginia started in Virginia Beach. A little day diversion for my husband and I. We had perfect weather, the people were so friendly, the sky was brilliant and the food was yummy. But, the best part was just hanging out with my dear husband, Steve.

Thanks honey for spending 2 days in a cramped plane, putting up with my constant photography, shopping 'girl stuff' and hanging out with and actually enjoying all of us crazy card-makers! You are the BEST!

So, here's to next year ladies...seriously, I cannot wait. I know it's going to be even better. Sue
