My Weekend & Winners!!!

Hello everyone! My apologies for posting this a few days late! I had to attend my oldest son's golf tournament, and then my youngest son has been ill, so I haven't had time to post until today. I appreciate the patience! Before I get to the winners of all the loot, I wanted to show you some photos of my weekend at The Crafty Scrapper doing Make-n-Takes! There were over 100 people who participated, and 12 designers who taught gorgeous projects! 
The wonderful thing about driving through Texas in April is seeing the millions of bluebonnets that engulf the roadways and pastures! I couldn't help but take photos! It's such a gorgeous sight!
Everyone was busy setting up their spaces for the Make-n-Take, and I was given a space big enough for seven people at a time.
We were all asked to bring a few projects that we had made to display by our booth.
Sadly, I forgot my phone on the day of the event, so I have no other pictures but these. I was able to teach 70 of the 100 people that attended in the six hour time slot. I am sorry to those of you who were not able to make the Notes and Collections Clipboard. There was quite a line each time it was time to move on, but aside from my fastest group that made the project in 15 minutes, most of the groups were longer. Next time I'll know to keep it much simpler, but I hope everyone enjoyed the day! 

AND NOW, look at all this loot I scored while in New England and at the Collins Show...enough for three big winners!!!

The first winner to win this stack of loot is...
Number 29, Lizaveta Tsar'kova-Golofas, from the Ukraine.

Lizaveta said...О, Анита! Какая великолепная поездка! Какие шикарные впечатления! Я вот сижу, смотрю и сама вдохновляюсь! И не думала, что бываю вот такие огромные магазины, в которых просто сумасшедший выбор товаров! У на в Днепропетровске магазинчики маленькие и выбор там скудненький, и цены очень высокие... А у вас-такая красота! Поздравляю тебя с таким чудесным путешествием!
Which translates to...
Oh, Anita! What a great trip! What luxury experience! I'm sitting here, watching herself inspired! And do not think that's such a huge'm shops that just crazy selection of products! In Dnepropetrovsk on small shops and there skudnenko choice and the prices are very high ... And you-so much beauty! Congratulations on such a wonderful stay!
