Reflecting on Reflections

I had a fabulous weekend at Reflections this celebrating our national holiday in Newport Beach with 100 other crafty fun loving women. It was seriously a blast. Here I am with Cheryl- Fiskateer #2 and Susan from Freckle Friends. It was just so fun being a part of this!
I had some fun roommates that rotated through my room-Cheryl, Jennifer and Jessica. What can I say, it was fun sleeping with ya?

I met so many wonderful women and we held a silent auction that raised about $600 for the American Heart Association. Karen, the owner of Srapbook Oasis and 1/2 of the planning committee for this fun event picked the charity. Her father is suffereing from heart disease so this cause is very close to her heart. They are actually donating a portion of the revenues from the event as well so I will have a total soon.

A huge thank you to Yuko and Anita that came on Thursday and Friday to help. They came with food to feed me and Cheryl, and then fed Stephanie and Jennifer too! (Stephanie was there teaching an awesome class which I will post pics of soon)They sat in the empty crop room and held down the fort while the rest of us worked the silent auction. They were bored and such troopers and I just can't thank them enough. And lovely Allison and Jennifer they helped with the auction and answered people's questions about SBR.

And what can I say about my wonderful classmates. Nan, Sarah from across the pond and Lori, I had so much fun with your guys! Thanks for saving me a seat and catching me up when I had to run out for a minute here and there. I seriously loved bonding with you girls. And Cheryl even got to sit in on a class with us with Mara May who I just loved. She is in Cali so keep an eye out, you will be hearing more about her from me :) here we are with our party hats we made in Mara's class. Accept Sarah who would not be caught dead wearing a party hat, she made a lovely layout instead. :)

Ok, more pics and ramblings to come.... gotta get caught up on SBR work!!
