A Virtual Workshop

Look! It's a simultaneous off sight workshop! This workshop was this past Saturday at my home and there was the same workshop in another city. I got these photos from Frances. Cool, eh? If my computer microphone was working, we could have had a Skype workshop - would have been way cool. All the participants in both workshops are good friends. Sadly, no photos were taken at the workshop from my home. So you can see Frances and all her gal pals: Cora. Karen, Jackie, and Gail with their completed projects.

And, here's Gail and Jackie with their M&M treats:

Cora and Karen with their finished cards:

Oh yes, and the 5 projects: all pictured here: Friends Card, Flower Pot card, Happy Birthday card, M&M Treat, Milk Carton.

Happy Birthday card: This card was a swap I received from Leadership (from Teri Gaines - Thank you, Teri). It is so perfect, no changes were made.

Here's a card created at Tami Waddell's Open House - creator of this card unknown. Card tweaked to use the new scallop boarder punch in place of the scallop boarder punch and using the Regal Rose Grosgrain Ribbon instead of the Pretty in Pink Satin Ribbon (which I did not have). Absolutely love the embossed Glassine envelope!!! Love the Hugs note, too

2nd card: a flower pot using the new Extra Large Fancy Flower Punch, the Scallop Trim Corner Punch, Medium Jewelry Tag Punch, Tiny Tags Stamp Set, and the Level 1 Hostess set from new Occasions Mini.

3D Items:
Milk Carton: inspired by an example also from Tami's Open house - creator unknown.
M&M tubes: (sorry photo is sideways) inspired by a swap from the famous Becky ( - OMG, everyone loved this candy favor.............After Leadership, Clear Bags ran out of inventory, I wonder why??? Thank goodness, there is another source in the SF Bay area.

Mug full of sweets!

Hi Patti: thanks again for helping us make our SCRAPPING DAY a most fun day. One thing missing was you. I loved all our projects, and have gone gaga over the M & M project. They are too cute. I'll be ordering those bags to make a ton more.....

You are too good to us. Gail
