THANK YOU to everyone who came and supported our Mother’s Day crop. We had 80 ladies (including my little poppet and friends) and raised over $2000 for Leanne and her family. Right at the moment her little girl is going through another round of chemo and would really appreciate all our prayers for a miracle right now. Huge thanks for the support from the girls who come down from Ballarat (Megan, Melissa and Brooke) and also Kylie from Lancefield.
Another awesome effort too was made by everyone who sacrificed a little of their time during the day and scrapped a photo of Daniel for his mum. Daniel is one of the little boys who died from an asthma attack the other week.
Not only did we manage to scrap ALL the photos we were given but a couple of other little gifts were made also. A special thank you goes to Diane Rowe not only for getting the photos for us but also taking that little extra time and making a frame and also to Sandy Oliver who scrapped a photos display as well.
Congrats to Shelley who won the Sizzix Big Shot and to Leonie who scored the signed Tim Holtz book. I know there were a few of you who were after that. If you are in my classes in Brisbane I have another one to give away.
Thanks to all the girls who helped set up and stayed behind to help clean up. Its a little part of the day that goes unnoticed but couldn’t do it without you.
Thanks again to the Winters for the most awesome food, it was great again.
An lastly i could let the day go without saying a huge thanks to Chez who came and hopefully inspired us all to keep doing the little things we do for others. (have you all worked out what your talent or gifts are yet???) To us it may only seem small but to the person receiving it – you may never know how much it meant.

Will let you all know as soon as i have a date for the next one.
