Tampa Bay Scrapbooking Guild March Meeting :o)

Earlier this week Dean and I headed over to Tampa for this months Tampa Bay's Scrapbooking Guild meeting, I met Teri during the treasure hunt and heard all about the meetings and classes and events that they hold (oh! she's also going to Inspired! WOOT!) I was really excited to participate in one of the meetings and when Dean heard Nancy Nally was going to be the speaker this month he was totally on board! We met at the cutest little place called Milk n Honey Tea Room.
Check out this arch they have set up in the room.. so stinkin' cute!

Here are some of the board of directors and sponsors! Teri, Pat, Lynn, Tess, Maura and Brenda... ( I sure hope I got everyone right hehe) oh!- and the oath they made us take was hilarious! truly a scrapbookers anthem.

and here's Nancy! Her presentation was awesome.. filled with information about trends, and ge got to see how it is she became who she is today in the scrapbook industry. It was really interesting to see how the economy influenced the trends we see taking place in the industry today. Thanks Nancy for coming to Tampa and sharing your knowledge with us! Come back soon :o)

Show and tell... I was not quite ready to actually stand there and talk about my work. So that was a challenge in itself, but it was great to see everyone's work. That's one of my favorite things about meeting new scrapookers. It's so interesting to see their styles and techniques! oh! and apparently I use too many pop dots hehe

They had awesome giveaways too! I won some Zip Dry WOOOOOOT!!! My very fave (thanks to Cheryl :oP ) and Dean won som eco-friendly paint, which I can't wait to play with!

and last but not least... the whole gang!

It was really great meeting everyone.. and although I will not be able to make all meetings due to distance, I will try to participate in this guild as time allows.. It was definitely a great time! Thanks ladies!!!

Stay sweet,
