Crops & Contests & Photos, oh my!

So...no breakfast post this weekend...Don & Audra ran the
Northland Hospice Run For Your Life 10k instead.  Jeez.  I
went to work (running is not my thing...at all).  Next weekend
we'll be checking out not one but two breakfast spots. 

The All Day Crop was
a tremendous success!  If you've not come to one, you're missing
out!  It's 12 hours of scrapbooking...with a make-n-take thrown in
there...and a great lunch.  This time we had a baked potato
bar.  Yum!  And Bridget brought Boston Creme Pie
Cake...delightful!  All Day Crops are scheduled for the last
Saturday of every month.  Many of the regulars come to midnight
madness on Friday & then are back again Saturday morning. 

Make sure to stop by & check out our sale area...I've
been straightening up the store, making room for new stuff & adding
to the 40% off area.  You'll be surprised at what's there!

I'll have pictures of classes posted tomorrow, along with the page contest winner.  Classes for July are up at the store.  Don't forget, Tuesday July 1st you can take this class
.  My sample is patriotic, but you get to pick the paper you want
to use.  It's a super cute acrylic book you won't want to
miss!  And the theme for July's page contest is:  Summer.  Entries are due by July 20th (hey, that's my birthday!).  And before I forget, we're having a birthday card contest, too!  Submit just one birthday card
for my birthday by July 20th & we'll have customer's vote on their
favorite one.  Winner will get a $20 gift certificate to the
store. 

My new lens came for my camera & I got to try it
out this weekend (it's a 35mm lens for my Nikon D80).  I was
hoping for more of the effect that others in my photography class were
experiencing & I wasn't disappointed.  Here are some shots from
Saturday:

 MacKenzie...probably the most photographic child I know.  And boy does she know how to pose!

Kendall & MacKenzie...Kendall refused to show her teeth when she
smiles.  Couldn't begin to tell you why but now she makes a point
of it.

Kendall having Bare Minerals makeup applied in Rainbow's End...love the blurred makeup brushes in the foreground...

I'll leave you with that.  Have a great day!
