MIABA June 19 Meeting

On Saturday, a group of us met at The Stamp Shoppe in Portage. The project was an acrylic book and the team of Linda, Puff, Tina and Teri were very well prepared for us. They had a ton of stamps, images to do packing tape or contact paper transfer, alcohol inks, stamp pads, stamps, a Xyron machine and a Zutter Bind-It-All. I've probably missed something, but it was a wonderful arty day and everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves.

This was the first meeting at which I actually got the project done. I may add a bit of bling from home, but basically, I have a completed book and even the hubster was impressed.

Here are some pix of the event:

I'm not sure how I missed getting a picture of Linda and Teri; I guess it was because they were perpetually going around helping. 

Did I mention the food was delicious and that the owner, Beth, was a sweetie?!

I believe there were 17 of us and it was just about the perfect size. Lots of room, lots of sharing and conversation.

In the afternoon Lorrie Abdo stopped in and visited. She couldn't come for the day because her son is in a soccer tournament. It was great to meet her.

Can't wait for the next meeting - I believe it is September 11 in the clubhouse in Grand Rapids - I haven't been to that one, but I've heard good things about it.
