I survived Circle Mania!

Last weekend was a whirlwind of activity as I traveled to Atlanta, GA for the first ever Circle Mania.  Even though I was a bit under the weather, I enjoyed the socializing, the (little bit) of crafting, the Make n' takes, the food and the shopping.  Sure am glad to be home though!  The weather was really bad on Sunday and I think I was able to fly out by the skin of my teeth.  Later tornado alerts grounded all flights in and out.

Below is a pic of my calling card and a little gift (charm/stick pin) I made for each of the 50 Maniacs.  All of the attendees made a personal calling card and many had little gifts.  The cards were all so unique and different.  I don't think I got all 50, but I got most of them. They are pretty awesome and I'm still debating how I will store them.

Finally, I made this beautiful Autumn Altered Box for our wonderful hostess Scrapalette.  I tucked a few little scrappy surprises inside for her.  I hope she enjoys it as much as I enjoyed making it. 

Thanks for stopping by!
