On Sunday 1st of March our Paper Angels group held the first of 2 Album in a Day workshops at Pine Rivers Bowls Club. The second one will be at Carina on the 15th of March.
We had a lot of wonderfully positive feedback about the day and we look forward to running more of these charity events and all-day events in the future. This particular event was run to raise money for the Australian Cancer Research Foundation. My sister-in-law Bell (who is also a member of my team!) recently lost her dad Garry to brain cancer. Her family have set up a Memorial Fund in his name and it is through this that we are donating all the money we raised.
Here are some photos from the day:
This photo shows the table we set up with samples on display. Everyone was welcome to browse the samples and take photos to use as inspiration later on. There were scrapbook pages, cards and other 3D projects on display.
Here you can see all the lovely ladies working hard on their scrapbook pages. Between the hours of 10am to 4pm they completed 20 6x6 pages for their album!
Here I am with my sister-in-law Bell and my mum Marie who won one of the fantastic raffle prizes. Stampin' Up! generously donated a huge box of supplies for us to use in our quest to raise money for the Australian cancer research foundation. Thanks Stampin' Up!
We had many other wonderful winners on the day. There were 8 of the large prizes like the one you can see Mum holding and also 4 Simply Sent kits which we raffled off.
Here's Bells's mum Julia who won one of the kits! (No, it was not rigged!! LOL!)
In total we raised $632 from our raffles, all of which is going straight to the foundation!
We are also donating 10% of our sales total from the day.
Here are photos of all our lovely ladies who attended this special event. Also pictured are the demonstrators who guided them through it - Jen, Kate, Leonie, Orrell, Karen, Bell and myself.
Not pictured (because she stayed behind the camera all day!) is the lovely Liz Collett. Liz is our team leader, without whom the day would not have been quite the success that it was. Thanks Liz!! Liz will be leading the team in the second event at Carina on the 15th of March where we hope to raise even more money for the Garry Palmer Memorial Fund.
