February was a good month.
Not only were we in the midst of LOAD…
Not only is it my birthday month…
It was also the first-ever “Scrapping and Lunch at Lain’s” event!
As part of our 12 Deals of Christmas promotion (awayyyy back in December), I decided that now that we’ve somewhat settled into our new home, it was time to host a crop/class for my local scrappy friends. So I put it out there to see if we had enough local people to create a fun and fantastic class… And there were!
Ten amazing ladies signed up to come over to create a cute and customizable mini-album, hang with a fun group of scrappy folks, and have a delicious lunch!
The following photos were taken by class members Diane and Deborah. Thanks, ladies!
The tables were set up in my dining room area. My friend Sylva (with the long dark hair below came to help me out, as I was deep in the middle of morning sickness and fatigue, but no one knew I was pregnant). This is Sheila, Ari, and Sylva at the table.
Our colors were black and white, with bright accents.
Callie helped me set up the tables the night before, including creating the treat bags and decorating. We put the tables together into one long table so we could hang together:
I finally found a use for all those Altoids tins I had been collecting!
Sylva brought super-cute burlap tablecloths, plus the adorable candy centerpieces:
Here’s a shot of Diane in red and Heather (who drove from Albany – wow!) busily working on their books.
By noon we were ready for a little sustenance:
We quite enjoyed it! Here you see Dianne, Deborah and Vickie:
One of the highlights was an incredible photo album from Diane, chockful of my secret (ha!) crush:
And another highlight was the desserts, tiny cupcakes from “Cake,” a local bakery that specializes in… guess what? CAKE!
YUM! So, all in all I’d say it was a great experience, one I can’t wait to repeat.
Thanks for all who participated. It was a huge high point for my month.
