Jingle Bell, Jingle Bell, Jingle Bell Crop!

The weekend was perfect for traveling and the company was fabulous. Off to Calgary I went for the fun and amazing Jingle Bell Crop. 

We had a wonderful host, the amazing Christy Riopel did an AWESOME job at organizing this event. The goodies were fabulous, the food was tasty, the company was warm. So, first thing is first, a great big round of applause for Christy!!!!! 

I was also so happy to see some old and new faces. The fabulous Allison Orthner, host of the one and only Crop and Cruise, the sweet Crystal Mann, from the Scrapbook Pantry
and new faces like the extremely talented Colleen MacDonald of Stamp It! Australia. 

I also got to crop with some friends that I met at the Scrapbook Your Heart Retreat. Laura and Mindy, thanks for the giggles and I look forward to seeing you again. And yes Laura, I told you you would end up on my blog!!!! 

My Prima class was full of messy good fun with a good smattering of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists, Prima Paintables and a good dose of Ranger Alcohol Inks!

A special thank you to all the ladies that participated and a congratulations to the winner of the Prima Aloha pack Cheryl Fawcett! And as an aside, I am a little jealous. When I saw the prize, I was quite sad that I had to give it away. sniff, sniff......

So, thanks for making this a memorable event and for those that couldn't make it, you definitely missed out on a good time!
