They are ready!!!!

You've got to check out all the BEAUTIFUL pictures from the weekend.  Ben has made it so easy for you to order prints, gifts and even really cool trading cards.  LOVE the trading cards.  Ben got so many great pictures of the details and the people.  I still can't believe that he got so many good shots and was hardly noticed while doing it!

Isle Carnival

Hi Everyone!

Can you believe Reflections is here!?!  We can't and we especially can't believe we get to see all of you in a few more hours!

A few vendors from the Isle Carnival have requested cash or check as their preferred method of payment so we wanted to pass that tidbit of information on to all of you. Also, for the Isle Carnival you should bring a small scrapbook tool kit with you that contains a pair of scissors, a tape runner and some glue dots.

We are so lucky again this year to have some amazing vendors. Sally Balistere with Dare You Say It, Daniella Costa with The Art Life and Punkey Sprouts, just to name a few more.

And for our Make N Takes we are equally lucky! We are fortunate enough to have Suzy Plantamura back along with Alice Carmen and Jamie Ko! Good times!!

See you soon!
