Atlanta Adventures

Brian King, Katy McGloin and Pam Morris sure know how to throw a party!  They hosted a regional get together for Pals in Atlanta this past weekend. 

Brian graciously met us at the airport and here he is escorting Mary Fish and me back to the hotel.

Being from New York that is a bit out of the region but they welcomed this Yankee as one of their own!  I learned how to say y'all, rode the Marta and had my first Krispy Kreme doughnut......or two!  Who could resist them with Anne Burr serving!

Then there was swapping, stamping and oh so much laughing! Katy and Pam gave demos and designed wonderful Make and Takes.  Brian was the ringmaster and kept things moving with games and prizes and some stamping tricks of his own to show us!

After lunch we found these mysterious bags on our tables:


We were told we had 30 minutes to create a card using only items from the bag and it had to include washi tape, Island Indigo ribbon, Etc DSP, chevrons and an image from Hello Lovely!  Whew it was a mad dash - here is our group working hard on our cards!

It was amazing how we were all given the same materials and we all created different cards - not a bad one in the bunch!  Here is what I came up with -  I was hoping to get three brads in but time was up! 

There were more prizes and games in the afternoon and we ended the day with a fabulous dinner at Maggiano's Restaurant.  So much fun!

So it is Monday morning............back to the real world but before I go I must say thanks once more to my friend Dawn Tidd who got up at 5am yesterday to drive me to the airport! Pals are terrific!

Y'all had so much fun from all the pic's I've seen. Your card is really neat. I love how the chevron arrow's go towards the sentiment. Dawn is such a nice person. I have only worked with SU products now for maybe a year and Dawn has helped me out a great deal on her blog. It is nice to see pic's of everyone being in this virtual world. Thanks for sharing!

Looks like loads of fun. But stamping under pressure? Ack! Maybe that's the secret for creating fabbo cards!
