New England AMuse Addicts Get-Together!

First of all I want to thank Jenn Shurkus for taking pictures of our craft extravaganza!

Sunday April 5th was the 1st?(with that many people!) New England AMuse Addicts Get Together! It was held at Ink About It in Westford. IAI is usually closed on Sundays but owners Linda and Lori were gracious enough to let us in and use their craft space. They also had lots of cool AMuse on sale for us as well!!! Yup...bought stuff...:0!

We had a Shoe Box Card Swap where everyone design one card and cut paper and brought all the supplies for each of us to also make one. In other words, I left with about 18 different cards which were all BEAUTIFUL! What a bunch of crafty women! Some of us also did an ATC (artist trading card) swap.
Here's the card I designed. I didn't actually assemble this particular one because...remember...these are Jenn's photos! Didn't she do a great job making my design?!?

I did however make this ATC. They were given out pre-made as a swap.

OMG...Jessy's 12!

I cannot believe my little tiny baby is growing up so fast! Dennis & I hoped that she'd stay a baby forever...NOT! She was very specific about wanting to go to Chunky's Cinema for her birthday dinner. "JUST THE 5 OF one else" she said. She wanted to be the center of attention with her big brother and boyfriend/girlfriend distractions. I love that Travis & Kyla mean that much to her.

Chunky's has quickly become our favorite family-nite destination. There's nothing like dinner and a the same place!

Check out the Lincoln Continental seats...they recline!

Here are my drama filled children...Happy Birthday Jessy!

Me and my baby...

Daddy's Little Girl...

Of course, I can't have a post without some sort of craftiness involved! Here's the birthday card I made Jessy...All AMuse stamps, Memory Box Card and Basic Grey Paper.
