Shoe Box Swap
excited and couldn't wait to get my first shoe box and make my card.
This was all of our first times participating in a shoe box swap. The idea, as we
understood it was to design a simple card. Put all of the ingredients to make the card,
a sample card and instructions in a shoe box. The box gets passed around and each
person gets 10 minutes to make their card.
So we learned a few things right away.
#1 Ria and Denise think 10 real minutes is really 20 minutes.
#2 Kim and Natasha think the Big Shot fits in a shoe box.
#3 Only Denise's ink pads fall apart in Margaret's hands.
#4 Justine, Diane and Kareen are over achievers and make us look bad. lol
#5 We need a person just to run the timer.
#6 We need 13 minutes and 2 minutes for clean up.
This picture was captured after the first round. If you look very closely you will
see that there are two cards incomplete. Yes, that would be the cards designed
by Ria and myself. Oops, we thought they could get done in 10 minutes.
in the room. This could be why I only completed 2 of the 8 cards.
Mostly we shared so many laughs and stories. I had a blast and can't wait to do
Natasha shared with us a project she has been working on for an upcoming party.
Check out how gorgeous these are.
and your guests how to make these flowers.
Thanks so much everyone for making such fabulous cards and for making our evening so special.
