Some Saturday Fun

Happy Monday! Hope it's a good one. Brenna and I were very BRAVE today, we got our flu shots! Other than that, it has been a nice, quiet day.

Saturday wasn't quite as calm, but it sure was fun!! I went to my favorite spot, The Scrapping Lounge. (thescrappinglounge.com) My friend, Debbie Miller who owns my favorite spot, had a 12 hour crop that day and a fundraiser for Breast Cancer. It was SO fun.

As you can tell from this photo, Debbie has a fabulous sense of humor. She is also honest, kind and true and is one heck of a business woman. Did I mention creative as well? Amazing. She had all kinds of cute hats and boas to dress up in and have a "photo op" during the day.

She also stuffed us full of goodies that people donated. YUM.

Debbie had some great people from the area donate gift baskets as well. We bought raffle tickets to enter to win and the money went toward fundraising for Breast Cancer.

This little piggy was full of scrapbooking fun!

During the day, there was a game we played called, "Who Has the Boob?" We passed around a form of a breast that actually had a lump in it. Someone from the hospital donated it. We all found it VERY instructive, actually. I have never felt a lump in a breast and never really thought I would know if I could detect one. It's a great teaching device. Anyway, whoever had it when the question was called out won a prize. So fun! I won some pretty pink OPI nailpolish and a pink sharpie.

I also thought it would be fun to take you on a little tour of the Scrapping Lounge. Ready? Let's go!

Everyone working hard on their creations.

Debbie has such a talent for showcasing papers that come in. Here are some ideas using Graphic 45.

Lots of goodies to choose from in the store!

I told you this gal is creative!

Some buttons all dolled up, waiting to go home with you.

And the decor of the store itself? Have a look:

EVERYwhere you look, there is something fun to try to make or inspire you.

There you have it. Now you know where I am every Wednesday. It's a half way point for my best friend, Wendy and myself. We get together each week and trade ideas, finds and treasures and best of all, create! If you are ever in Montclair, stop by and say hi to Debbie!
Have a great day,
