Fun Fridays – The Story of the Hot Pink Boots!


Well these are not my color since I don’t do pink! Justice for a Cure and Breast Cancer Recovery hosted an alumni retreat a few months ago which I attended. The pink boots were there too.

Challenge by Choice is always a component at retreat and this time, it was line dancing! The Dairyland Dancers entertained us and then invited us to learn a routine. One of the dancers wore these boots and then donated them to BCR.  They were spontaneously auctioned and Jane had the winning bid! She donated them back to BCR and they made it to the auction table at Party with a View this week which was held at Blackhawk Country Club.

I was tickled to see my auction donation right beside the boots. My good friend Karen won my Paper Pumpkin Night Out. Emily said she would join us. Yahooo!


Here is why it was called Party with a View. We had a great view overlooking the golf course and the lake. Our Tibetan Flags enjoyed a very nice sunset!


I am hosting a paper crafting fundraiser to benefit BCR on June 9th. Find the details here Cards for a Cause to benefit Breast Cancer Recovery Contact me if you want to join us!

Thanks for enjoying the hot pink boots with me today!

Stampin Friends

Look what was delivered to me today by my stampin friend, Kay!

5 26 2016 2-001

Not just an ordinary catalog, but a spiral bound one! As demonstrators, we are constantly flipping through our books so the spiral binding makes it easier to do this. She dropped the catalogs off at Staples and picked them up later. Thank you Kay for sharing a spiral bound copy with me!

Interested in receiving your own catalog copy? I have to see the whites of your eyeballs so contact me to set up a pick up or delivery time. If you don’t already have a demonstrator, I would be happy to be yours and provide you with a free catalog! Just ask!
