Well, as you can tell, I did not blog yesterday. I am STILL recovering from 7+ hours on my feet at the “Twenty Pages In One Day” Event at The Scrappin' Table.

We had blast! Everyone brought so much food we had a full-on buffet in the back of the store!! I had tons of prizes to give away and I am pretty sure everyone got a prize. I met so many new ladies too–such a great group. Some good friends also took the class so it was nice to spend some time with them too. Tran had the cutest apron on that she bought from Treasures for Charity and Lola was super cute in her cape and tiara!!

I prepped 350+ pages for this event!! I have a couple extra of some pages (because I can't count) so I will likely be making those for my nephews' Christmas books…

In the class we made 301 pages (that's 20 pages each for 15 people plus 1 page that I made Anne “speed-scrap” in the morning–hehe. If you know Anne, she does not like to scrap fast and crazy like me).

We had SEVENTEEN people sign up for this class–amazing!! I am so happy that we got so many people to take this class. It isn't one I do too often and it is so great to actually have that many finished pages leaving the class. Not everyone finished every page and some ladies did some pretty awesome improvising but overall, most everyone left with a stack of 90% finished goodies!!

Tricia from Canon was AMAZING! She is so sweet and patient and we just loved seeing everything the two Canon printers she brought could do. Over half the class brought in their memory cards to get pics printed and it was great to see them putting pics on a page right there in the class–talk about a truly “finished” page!!

All in all the day was great. Anne did a great job helping out too, especially with the really awesome, technique filled, snow page she designed. Michelle and the Table staff were so helpful all day long as well. Thank you to everyone who came to the class!!! A big thanks to Gina, Heather, Cindy, and Maria for helping us get set up!! And a big thanks to Anne for helping out with this class!!!

Well, off to get ready for my”Glamour Girl” class today!
