Mainely Adventures Lodge Scrapping & Cardmaking Weekend!

The very first weekend in October I organized a stamping & card making weekend for a bunch of girls. Some of these girls were customers of mine, a few friends of mine and some newly made friends. What fun we all had!

We spent 3 days together at Mainely Adventures Lodge which is owned by my friend Pam Ward. This is the cabin that we stamped and scrapped in and some of us slept upstairs in the loft:

And this is the lodge where we all gathered for our delicious meals. The other half of our group slept here also:

Here are a few photo's of our group of 12:

The girls all went up to the top of the hill to view the sunset. Pam drove them 
all up there by ATV (2 trips) and the sunsets were gorgeous all weekend long

This was a card made by Deb LaRosa and given to me from the group as a thank you for organizing the event. The girls all signed the card right under my nose without me suspecting anything. It was quite funny. A card was presented to Pam also for a great weekend.

This is a photo of the trio of projects the girls all made with my instruction. I had the kits all ready for them to do their own stamping and assembling.

Card #2:

And project #3:

These are mini coffee cups that I purchased from someone else who bought them in bulk and I do not know where they were purchased. Aren't they the cutest?
A big thanks to Pam for supplying us with a great place to stay, good food and many, many laughs with all the girls. We had a great time and hope to do this again in late spring!
