What a Weekend!! ~ In Guelph!

Wow!  What a super fun weekend!  Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps was invited to the Guelph Mega Crop this past weekend in combination with Younique and it was fabulous!!!

The theme was a Victorian Tea and some of the ladies got right into it and dressed up.....this is Heather, owner of Younique with her husband, sister and brother-in-law!  Can't say enough about these awesome peeps!!  They worked so hard to ensure that all 160 attendees had an incredible day!

We had a fabulous area to have our booth and display some of the amazing creations by our Krafty Girls!  That is always the favourite thing for customers....there are always lots of ooohs and aaahs!

Here are some of us at the beginning of the day.....all bright eyed and perky.....before the four fantastic classes that we taught!  Hahah!  This is Kerry Johnson, myself and Melanie Holtz!

And Melanie and the lovely Tara Godfrey!

Here's a shot of all 160 attendees, plus organizers, teachers etc!  It was a FUN bunch!!  And everyone hard at work and having fun cropping, stamping and colouring!

And this *may* be later in the day when we started getting a little punchy.....giggles galore!!!

Also go to chat up a storm with Lisa from Scrapfest....and YES, we will be there in Kitchener on April 13/14th!!  Do you have your tickets yet???  Are you gonna come see us at the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps booth?

I'd just like to say a HUGE thank you to Kerry, Melanie, Tara and the indispensable Mr. Kraftin' Kimmie for all their hard work this weekend!  They helped to ensure a fantastic event and wonderful classes which were full....and full of fun students!!  Also thanks to Heather and her crew for including us and taking care of us all weekend!  Can't wait to do it all again!!!
