My sister Wendy told me about it and we both volunteered this weekend helping with set-up and training on Saturday and on Sunday we were each assigned a girl to help outfit with a dress, then pick out shoes, jewelry, a purse, shawl and then take her to the makeup and hair studio they had set up on site. Then they have photos taken and are given a goody bag. The entire thing is run by volunteers and several people and companies donate all of the items and their time. Two of my daughters still had their grad dresses and donated them. The event has grown to include girls from several areas. I was assigned the sweetest girl who was utterly amazed with everything she received. There were many happy tears and smiles and I want to volunteer every year! I'm posting the story in case anyone is inspired to do a similar event in their area.
I wanted to show you this a pretty notebook style memo pad below and have you check out DT Member Kathy Clement's Tutorial to Make Your Own Memo Pad. She printed paper designs from our Typography CD3 and explains how she printed on canvas paper and stitched it up in no time at all.
We are sponsors for the 613 Avenue Create Anything Goes Challenge and DT Member Darlene Pavlick is also on their design team and she created this pretty card using our Victorian Floral Easter Eggs. You have to check out the link and see the other cute samples made with our Easter digital stamps
DT Member Diane Hover created these gorgeous little gift boxes and gift tag using paper from Illustrations CD 2 on the bottom box and the quilt paper from our Sew Decor CD #7 on the top and the tag is from our Birds and Blossoms 4 page digital set. You can see the boxes and all the details on Diane's Blog - Nellies Nest. NOTE: We found about 40 sheets of the old Single Sided Birds and Blossoms and they are on for $1.25.
