The Perfect Weekend! Croppin' With the Stars!!



A zillion thanks to Kathy Files and Provo Craft for a once-in-a-lifetime weekend! I can't imagine one thing that could have made this any more fun! A luxury hotel, fantastic food, amazing beach front location, great friends, new friends for life, surprises, celebrities, and cropping goodies that just never stopped!! AND all of this was Provo Craft's gift!! Kathy won this dream weekend for herself and ten friends, and I was lucky enough to be one of those friends....and will be forever!!

Maggie, Bob and I drove up on Friday. Bob then went to spend the weekend with his sister and his niece. (Side note: he got sick, and I really DID feel bad that he was sick while I was having such a good time)... Maggie and I checked into the Hilton on the beach, and the fun began! What a gorgeous place this was, and Rachel and Kimberly from Provo Craft were there to greet us with drinks before dinner. Jim Colby, VP, and Jinger, the spokeswoman for PC, were coming in on a later flight. By now all eleven of us girls were there, and began to get to know one another. Oh, what fun! Susie came from Texas, Brooke from Kentucky, Tracy came from Georgia, Lisa, Carol and Maggie were from Orlando, Kathy, Fonda, Brandy and Jackie were from Pensacola, and I am from Sarasota. That was all of us!

I could go on, but you can tell that this was one of the most wonderful experiences I've ever had, and I want to thank Maggie, Kathy, Rachel, Kimberly, Jim, and the execs at Provo Craft for making it something that I will never forget. All I can do is promise that I will do my best to pay it forward. Blessings to you all.

Happy crafting ~
