Cupcakes & Roses...

Thanks to all of you for coming to celebrate with us! We hope all of you had as much fun as we did.

A special thank you to Sugar Buzz Cakes for all of the cupcakes they made for us. They were so yummy!

And beautiful roses from Sherry and Colleen. Thanks ladies we love them!

The vendors getting all set up and ready for the crowds.

Great classes~ thanks to all of the teachers and students. Sandy Navarro taught her Vintage Shore class. It was quite the hit. We had tons of requests for kits so, if you would like one you can contact Sandy directly.

Jenny Hernandez taught her Spooky Kitty paper clay class. Jennifer even took this class! Jenny is a great teacher and is coming back in December to teach again. Go to her blog and complete the survey she is doing. That will help her decide what to teach. Go vote for your favorite!

The beginnings of Jennifer's Spooky Kitty. Go to her blog to see the finished product. He's so cute!

There's some real concentration going on here!

Here's crazy Lilia Meredith hamming it up for the camera. She taught her "Little Fabric House" class. Everyone showed up with sewing machines in hand and got busy creating their fabric books.

Lilia was making sure Sue got it just right.

Vicki Chrisman came all the way from Nebraska to teach here! Here she is helping one of her students put the final touches on her Halloween project.

And, of course Mike and Lesley~Jack and Cat Curio taught their shadow box class "Dark Side of Youth".

We were so busy in setting up for all the classes and vendors that we kind of forgot about our raffle that we promised all of you. If you reply to this blog post by Saturday evening 9-19-09 we will enter you into the raffle to win some wonderful prizes. We won't be able to mail any prizes out, it's a pick up your prize kind of raffle. Good luck to all of you.

I'm so jealous, I stopped by your store on Saturday (Sept. 12th) while I was in Mesa. Your store is incredible, and the classes offered, WOW!, just wish I had packed my tools. Congratulations on your Fifth Year. Mystic Paper is definately a find in my eyes! :)
