Southern Hospitality - SU! Style - FMS157




There is nothing like Southern Hospitality! That dynamic duo of Brian King and Pam Morris organized a World Card Making Day event in Atlanta - and what an event it was! About 45 Stampin' Up! demos gathered for a weekend of fun, friendship, swapping, crafting and training.  It was like a miniature convention - complete with an appearance by Donna Griffith from SU!'s home office!


Pam Morris, Donna Griffith, Brian King


And in true SU! tradition there were prizes galore!  Here I am winning my first prize from Pam - a Frightful Wreath kit and DSP.....oh it was a very good day for prizes if your name was Linda! Who is that photo bomber anyway????



Brian and Pam truly thought of everything - games, projects, demonstrations, contests and Krispy Kremes..........what more could you ask for?  



                                     Our table hard at work on a Halloween project.



Watching Tom Sawyer Brian King demonstrate a whitewashing technique.


I'll be sending some feathery thank you cards to my amazing friends in Georgia who organized this wonderful event!  







That sweet Texas gal Amy O'Neil has a lone star on her wonderful sketch this week!  Feel free to use any shape and play along with us at Freshly Made Sketches!


Keep It Simple Challenge is hosting a challenge of "3" this week so I am entering my design there as well.  KIS!50
