Donations Please

Tuesday, February 17, 2015
Last Friday night our youth group put on their annual EVENING OF AMORE`.  This is a fund raiser night for the teens to earn money to support their summer mission trips.  I love to see how the church enjoys supporting them in this way and it is such a fun evening out.  They ask for donations big and small, so I usually donate a variety of cards.  This year I made several boxes of cards using the Lotus Blossom Stamp Set.  Did you remember that you can get this stamp set FREE with your $50 purchase during the Sale a bration period?  Click HERE to start shopping.  Sale a bration ends March 31st, so don't wait - there are a LOT of great products that you can get for FREE.
I was inspired by Brenda Quintana and her tutorial on the box dimensions.  It worked out perfectly.
Another 2 boxes held these cards using the Painted Blooms Designer Paper
Dale donated 3 gift baskets of soaps, lotions and candles.  I can tell you these were a BIG hit.  I am so proud of him and his new found business.  Of course I forgot to take a picture of those - sorry about that! You can see more of his products HERE.
What a fun night! The kids did a skit which "roasted" the Office Staff at church.  They sure did capture the personalities of each staff  member - of course I got the biggest chuckle out of the one who played Dale.  Here he is with a mop (the kid is wearing Dale's coat, so when they asked for it he knew something was up)

 Here he is with a bar of Hawaiian soap - now Dale thinks he needs to come up with a Hawaiian theme soap line.
 They did a Hawaiian style "Hula with the Stars" skit - so cute! The lucky adult participants did NOT know that they were going to be called up on stage to dance.  This one is our Pastor Larry - so funny! Great attitude! He has become a wonderful friend to us.
 This is Tutu Hughes (Tutu means grandmother in Hawaiian) the mother to our Director of Student Ministries.  She and her hubby (and 2 sons) came from Seattle Washington to be with us that night!  She did all the cooking and I tell you what - it was fantastic!! Authentic Hawaiian food prepared by a Hawaiian!!  She was/is a professional hula dancer with years of experience.  She did a little teaching of the Hula that night and then closed out our night with a beautiful farewell hula dance just for us! We felt extremely honored.
 Beautiful - just beautiful!
 Thanks for stopping by!
