Cricuteers in Paradise ~ Monkeying Around!

Friday through Sunday there was a lot of Monkeying Around in Punta Gorda, Florida! There were 30 amazingly talented, and fun~loving ladies gathered in one place to have a great time together....and we certainly did that! The Cricuteers in Paradise Swarm was a wonderful success, and we were delighted to welcome 7 new members this time, plus a brand new little mascot named "Tia" (unless we can get her Mommy Wanda to change her name to Cricut!!!) She is laying in Claire's arms, up along the green railing, third from the left! She is only 9 weeks old, and was everyone's delight. It was also wonderful to have our Queen Mum, Olga, with us again....at the young age of 96...and she colors those images like a pro!! We collected 250 cards to be sent to family soldiers in Iraq; shared a report about the Head Start class we helped sponsor at Christmas; and we made get well cards for our friend Rosemary. Many, many pages were completed, new techniques learned, anything and everything shared, and lifelong friendships formed. Thank you again to the Design Team, and to our great chef, Joni! I could never do this without you. Blessings to you all, and we're getting ready for Cricuteers in Paradise ~ Hop To It!!!

Happy Crafting ~
