What a great day!

We had our first Anthologies outing together on Saturday and it was so much fun! We participated in a local 12-hour Crop for the Cure to raise funds for breast cancer research. Anthologies donated several door prizes and two beautiful albums for a raffle.We also offered a make-and-take card (see below) for 70 or so participants which Susan designed for us.Isn't it wonderful?!?! It had to be relatively simple and quick and everything was precut. She used three beautiful patterned papers from Melissa Frances' Thankful line. Just to add to the fun...I provided a free 12x12 page lo kit for all of the croppers too! Many other vendors contributed to the door prizes and held M&T's for these lucky croppers and if you ever get the chance to eat at Sweet Tomatoes...take it! They provided lunch and it was oh so yummy!

My hat goes off to the coordinators of this 12-hour event! They did an amazing job! It was fabulous to be in a room full of 70+ croppers, many of whom are breast cancer survivors. Thank you for sharing your stories with us! Around $3500 in donations were raised as a result of the Crop for the Cure! All of us here at Anthologies are so thankful to have been a part of this incredible event!

Joyfully Yours,
Tracy :)
