What a great time we had in Kernersville this weekend at the Stampin' Up Quarterly. Luckily, Marianne was feeling better on Friday and was able to go. I picked her up at Mom's after I did my stint at the Retirement Center. We stopped along the way at the Enchanted Cottage Stamp store. WOW is all I can say! It is overwhelming because it is so big and has so much stuff in in. Unfortunately, we had a little trouble finding the store and by the time we got there, we only had about 20 minutes before they closed. It is definitely a place you need more than 20 minutes - maybe a whole day to see everything.
We checked into our hotel and went across the street and had a yummy dinner - country style steak, mashed potatoes, baked apples ..... really good! Then it was on the the quarterly. We got set up and got started with our Friday night project. Janie Murphy was in charge of this one and she did a great job. We each had half of a Simply Scrappin' kit and made 11 cards and a magazine holder for the cards from the kit and even had a few pieces left over to take home with us. I was impressed. I have never done much with the Simply Scrappin' kits (page 162-165) but that will change. The cards are so cute and were so quick and easy to put together. We made the 11 cards and holder in about 2 hours!! We were back at our motel by 9:30 which never happens at Quarterly! We used the Sunshine Garden kit to make these cards:
