I've waited a loooong time to do this post on Marion's birthday mini album surprise!!
Way, way back in June, I joined the Girls Gone Scrappy Kit Club hosted by Marion at A Piece of Craft.com !! This was my first ever kit club that I joined and I was super thrilled and VERY EXCITED because the other GGS members have amazing scrappy talents!! Oh .. I KNEW I was in for a special learning treat!!
So... after blog hopping madly from one GGS members blog to the next and trying to learn as much as i could (cause OMG.. I would be doing swaps with these ladies..) I was thrilled at how much fun I was having and started to think of a way to thank Marion.
Then I remembered her email she had sent out asking the GGS gals what are birthdays are so she could post on the GGS blog... anyways...
****** LIGHTBULB (heee silly eh?) *****
WOW what a great idea ..... A BIRTHDAY MINI made from GGS members would be the MOST PERFECT WAY to say thank you!
The rest is history.. emails went out with details on how to submit a page, everyone replied with enthusiastic responses, emails swirled, pages were made, photo's were taken, more emails, AND THEN...
the PAGES STARTED arriving in the mail!! OMG!!! omg!!OMG!!
THIS WAS THE FUNNEST LAST FEW Months I have EVER HAD going to check the mail!! :) LET ME EMPHASIZE the word E.V.E.R!! Seriously, the most amazing pages I have ever seen came to me.. I ooh'd and ahh'd ... I was like a crazed lady when I got a page in the mail! LOL.. I would grab it outta the mail box, get home, run upstairs... carefully open it up, OHH'D AND AHH'D, studied it, recorded the name, the contents, the city, mark the package with the number of the order it was received, emailed that GGS member right away! YEAH!!... SOO MUCH FUN! :)
So... today Marion received her mini.. She's thrilled and super excited!! :)
Marion, Happy Birthday and Thank you for bring so many wonderfully talented ladies together!!
