2014 Scraps of Colors Retreat

I have to comment on the wonderful time I had this weekend in Alpharetta Georgia.  I attended SOC 2014 Retreat.  I had a ball!  I must say, I think Crafters are a special breed of people.  I found Tiare (the hostess with the mostess) and the ladies that attended to be warm, friendly and very talented.  We all had one desire in mind and that was to have a great time crafting.  We had our Pink Pajama's on all day Saturday and even shopped in them.  We were very recognizable in the Hotel (Embassy Suites).  The food was superb!  The free gifts and prizes were wonderful.  There was plenty of time for laughter and dancing along with the late hours of crafting.  This was worth the time and expense!  Can't wait till the next one!
Below is the photo of my Name Badge and State Tag that we asked to make for the contest.  Didn't win, but that was okay because the winner was Corinne from Bermuda and it was well deserved!

National RAK Day 2/17

Our challenge for this week at 613 Avenue Create, was to create something for someone that does a service for you.   I chose to make a Gift card wallet.  After viewing the " Follow The Paper Trail" video on You tube,  I thought this was a perfect way to show gratitude to my grandsons coach. 

 Materials I used:

Bazzill card stock
DP from my stash (I've had it so long I can't remember what collection it came out of.)
Cricut Cartridge: Sports Mania
Tim Holtz chain
Clip from Staples
Copic markers
Fitztown image: Sports 20
Spellbinder scallop die cut
Sizzix embossing folder.

I really enjoyed making this.  I'm sure I will be making more of them in the future.  Great way to give a gift card!  Thanks for stopping by!
