Wow did we have fun!

Session 1 of the Blossoms ‘n Bling Spring Crafters Retreat was a huge success from beginning to end.   The excitement and energy was amazing.   I don’t want to show you all the details just yet as we still want to surprise our guests at the second session next week but here are some photos that I can share.

We had several gift bundles of Stampin’ Up! supplies and gifts donated from local business that were raffled off and all of the proceeds are being donated to Michigan Special Olympics.  Julie is finding out who a lucky winner will be!

Raffle Winner  Amy was super excited about the raffle gift she won.  Thanks Amy for supporting Michigan Special Olympics.

Special Olympics Supporter  Michelle was another of our lucky winners!

I think everyone was very busy getting lots of pages and projects made.

Make and takes    Sharon and Kristine were very happy with the way their make ‘n takes turned out.   Lots of bling!!
