3rd Annual Charity Pajama Stamping Party

DAT'S 3rd Annual Charity Pajama Stamping Party was a HUGE SUCCESS!

A BIG THANK YOU goes out to all of you who came out and participated in the event & to those of you who couldn't make, but still placed an order.

With your support we raised $910.00 for the Northern Cancer Fund - Chemotherapy in Honour of Ellena Esteves.

With all the orders placed with Close to My Heart & Stampin' Up, we had $770.00 in Hostess Rewards to purchase items for next year's Yard Sale with a Twist.

It was a great day filled with many laughs, lots of inspiration & packed full of fun.

We had 41 items to sell off at the Yard Sale with a Twist and that raised $880.00. Then Ellena sold off her extra card kits from that day & that brought in another $30.00 for a grand total of $910.00.

Not only did we raise money for a very good cause & in honour of a very amazing, strong & talented woman. We played BINGO on the stamped out BINGO cards that Shanna, Amy & I made. We made a Christmas card with Shanna from Close to My Heart and a Christmas card with Ellena from Stampin' Up. We raffled off some prizes. We brought lots of samples for everyone to see and we even had some punch & sweets to treat our taste buds.

It was an absolutely great Sunday afternoon!

I would like to thank Tracy Warwick for lending us a hand with cleaning up after the activities of the day. Your assistance was greatly appreciated.

I would also like to thank my husband, Trevor; my cousin, Brandi & my friend, Kelly for all their assistance with keeping things running smoothly throughout the afternoon. Without your assistance, it would have been a very crazy day for Shanna, Ellena & I. So, thank you.

A special thank you also goes out to my daughter, Amy. She helped us with a lot of the prep work when Ellena wasn't able to because she was in the hospital. Amy also did a lot of the set up & take down on the day of the event & did a fabulous job running her Copic Air Brushing Demonstration Table. THANK YOU VERY MUCH!
