Stamp-A-Thon News.

Hello everyone,
I'm back from a very interesting holiday in Cambodia, where my hubby and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary, but I'll tell you more about that and show some amazing photos at a later date.
This post is to tell you a little bit about our Stamp-a-Thon event for 2010, which was held on the 4th of September. We had yet another wonderful day of stamping fun, while raising some much needed funds and awareness for the National Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
Makeesha came back over from Cairns to host the show as well as design three of the projects for the day, she not only designed, but cut her kits out for the day and brought them all over safely in her suitcase. Louise Ryan designed another two projects which were simply stunning and I did two also. So all attendees made 7 great projects to take home and lots of lucky people won prizes too. There was lots of food and refreshments on hand which was so beautifully presented by the wonderful helpers in the kitchen, Louise's mum, Keesh's mum and two of Lou's lovely downline too. We were also very lucky to have the gorgeous Ann Gerlach to help in so many ways on the day as well as in the build up to it. So a big thank you to all who helped make the day a wonderful one as well as a successful one. This is a picture of me with the star super woman who must have ever-ready batteries Makeesha :-)
Here's me with the most gorgeous Louise with a heart as big as all outdoors!

This is me with Ann, my ever calm and beautiful tower of strength. Thanks for your help Ann :-)

Here's a picture of just a few of the wonderful attendees, heads down and stamping their hearts out. I hope you all had as much fun as we did. :-)
Now for the news you've all been waiting for, DRUM ROLL PLEASE ........
The final tally of funds raised on the day is $5,476.93 So thank you to all those who came along and to those who made donations which made that sum possible. Makeesha, Louise and myself are very thankful to all of you, lets hope our contribution will help make the fight against this awful cancer a little easier.
I with the help of Ann and another fellow demonstrator Sam are holding another event on the 23rd of October to help raise some more funds for this wonderful cause.
Thanks for stopping by today and please visit again to see the projects which were made at this years Stamp-a-thon. Lots of inky hugs from...
