Stampin’ for the Community Connection

Hi Everyone,

It’s been such a busy time….

As you know I do an event every other month for charity here in the Jacksonville, Fl area. It’s so much fun but tons of work! I couldn’t do it alone for sure. This time I had 7 of my Girls (downline) helping me. Together we make this happen and raise $$ for the Charity. I’d like to share a few pictures of this as it means so much to me.

Oh my good golly miss molly! This is fantabulous! And what perfect timing, too, Lee. I'm meeting with my group tomorrow to go over the Wounded Warrior fund raiser in April and will have everyone "tune into" your post for set up ideas. These are great shots, very explanatory in helping us to have as successful an event as we can. Will be in touch with you shortly after our meeting Wednesday. Big hug, Celia
