I can't believe it has been so long since my last post....my laptop totally died and I have been lost without it. Moving on with the desktop and will be posting all the happenings of the past few weeks as I have several things to show you all.
First off, this past Thursday we had our Dazzling Divas downline group Christmas Party. We started the evening off with a delicious dinner at BJ's Restaurant. After dinner we came to my home for a gift exchange and dessert.....Chocolate Cake and Strawberry Cheesecake....yummo!!
Here we are after dinner at my home...Left to right: Anita Hager, Pam Hegarty, Me (Barbara Welch), Grace Bachara, Vicki McClelland
Other members that were not able to attend: Lorri Heiling, Nancy Riley, Melissa Davies, Sharon Hartsman
For the gift exchange, we made a gift for each other...
Pam gave us a set of 4 glass coasters with stamped inserts using the Holiday Lineup Set, you can make new inserts for every holiday and change them out!!! How cool is that!!
Grace gave us a gift set from Bath & Body Works in this adorable SU! box decorated with SU! accessories
Anita used SU! Rub-ons to decorate this soap/lotion dispenser and decorated this adorable gift bag.
Vicki's gift is a fold-out scrapbook, she used lots of DSP and the Simply Scrappin' Die-cuts made this so cute!! I can't wait to add some pictures
