Crop to Cure Diabetes - The Wrap Up!

I finally caught up with Nancy Forbach, the Grand Prize winner from my Crop to Cure Diabetes!  She was very happy to claim her prize!

A huge thank-you to Debbie Chabot, owner of Scrapbooks-Plus, for generously donating the crop room for the entire day.    She also contributed a discount coupon for the goody bags and some paper and embellishments for some of the day's projects.

I am also eternally grateful to my friends who volunteered their time and donated the materials for their amazing Make N' Takes:
Lisa Hausman gave us a chance to create an art journal type page!

Angela Nunley gave us a quick page to start us scrapping for the new school  year!
Karen Bearse  helped everyone to create their own unique mini-canvas!
Thank you so much to everybody who participated - it was such a fun group of ladies!  We had lots of excitement with our hourly door prize drawings. We also added some fun with an  impromptu Halloween page contest - the winner, Kate Sullivan!  Be sure to check our Facebook page for more pictures from the crop!

There were several people who were unable to attend the crop, and they very generously made donations to The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation anyway. Thank you, thank you, thank you to each and every one of you!  We were able to raise over $1,500 for JDRF this year and we are definitely planning to host a crop again next year - hopefully bigger and better!
