Table Scraps Success!

Table Scraps was a ton of fun! I have been so busy I haven't had time to post but I did manage to get my photos uploaded to Facebook. You can click to view my Table Scraps Album where you will see photos of me and my co-worker, Debbie Mitchell, as well as all of the awesome pages I created that day. Below is a photo of Debbie, Lisa Bearnson, and myself at the event.

Below is one of my favorite pages. It was created using the leftover pieces from the Cosmo Cricket Togetherness kit provided by Lisa Bearnson. She taught the "To the Moon" afternoon scrapbook class.

This was my very first ever scrapbook crop and I had a blast. I would like to thank my employer, Michael's, for providing me the opportunity to attend as a sponsored guest. I plan to attend next year on my own dime as the cause is worth it. The Food Pantry raised over $5000 for their Buddy Pack program through this one event.

If your not familiar with the Buddy Pack program let me give you a few details about it.  The Buddy Pack program sends needy kids home for the weekend with a backpack full of food - this ensures kids have food on the weekends when they aren't at school getting free or reduced price lunches. For some kids, their free/reduced price meal is the only meal they eat. Can you imagine going all weekend without food? This program is great.  

And for those that are interested, the crop was completely funded by sponsors from the community so all the money from the ticket sales, raffles, etc went completely to the Buddy Pack program. Some of the sponsors included JES Holdings; Providence Bank; Dentist: Colin A Malaker, DDS; Les Green, Culligan Water; Backer's Potato Chip Company; Dr. Deborah A Blain D.C.; and many others. Big thanks for all of them for helping to support the Buddy Pack Program and making my day wonderful!
