Here’s a card to get you in the spring/summer mood! My friend, Michelle Zindorf walked me through how to create the beach scene that is in the circle, all you do is literally drag your ink pad across the paper! I love this effect! There are so many possibilities with this technique!
I like using Foam Strips to give the chair some dimension, that way I don’t have to trim down Dimensionals to make them fit.

The them of our event was obviously picnic! You can get away with picnic parties in January when you live in AZ! LOL
Let’s start off with the table goodies! Juli Steward made the adorable water bottle labels that went so well with our picnic theme! What is a picnic with out trash cans? These little cuties were ordered from a company in China. We actually used them for our scraps, and each person received one at their table. The name tags were made by Kimberley McQueen, they have a cute little ant on them. The picnic baskets were headed up by Becca Matlock and her team helped assemble those. The pattern to the picnic basket can be found HERE on my blog under tutorials. I love Becca’s creative touch to coordinate with our theme. The cute little lady bug bubbles container with our Regional logo on it was created by Donna Kish!
Here is the table all set up. Robin Higgins made the beautiful sunflower centerpieces – they go so well with our picnic theme!
Brenda Marshall and Becca Matlock greet the guests as they arrive.
Linda Rodenberg made this darling banner to welcome the guests! I just love to see the creativity of our team!
