More Atlanta Pals fun!

Yesterday, I wrote about the Pals Atlanta Regionals event this past weekend hosted by Pals, Brian King, Pam Berinato Morris and Katy McGloin, and shared my "Swap" card. Today, I'd like to share another of my "Regionals Creations"!

So here's my Stampin' Story - 

At the beginning of the program, there was a bag at each table with the instructions, "No Peeking"…well if that didn't make you want to peek, I don't know what would. We didn't peek, though. We sat there all morning wondering what was in the bag! The suspense was killing us….Here's the bag! We had to look at that all morning…


Right smack in the center of the table….with "NO PEEKING" in big, black, bold letters on both sides! We still didn't peek, though.

Finally, Brian came clean…he told us what was in the bag, and this one's a doozey! (I think that's how you spell doozey).

Apparently, Brian watches the cooking show, Chopped. Chopped is a show where four
chefs race against the clock to turn mystery ingredients into amazing meals.

Aha! Now you have it…THE CHOPPED CHALLENGE!

There were crazy Stampin' Up! supplies in the bag that we all had to use to create a "masterpiece". Each "masterpiece" had to meet certain criteria established by Brian, Pam and Katy. Here's the criteria:

  • Chevron Punch, Island Indigo Chevron Ribbon, Washi Tape, Epic Day Designer Series Paper, Hello Lovely stamp set and AWSOMENESS!!!…

All rightie then…I needed to go into a zone, and very quickly at that! I started cutting paper and making layers…then I made a complete "swoosh" of the supplies on the table…not sure what I was grabbing or where I was going to put it when I grabbed it, but I grabbed and glued and cropped and punched and somehow I made it in time. (I've written about my "not knowing how it happens, but it does" swoosh stories).

So here's me running to the finish line…that's how I am when I go into my "zone" …chairs, what chairs…I'll run around them! Nothing will stop me…I'm from Jersey!


This Stampin Story has a happy ending ……my card design, by anonymous vote, won the Grand Prize!


How cool is that?

Thank you again, Brian, Pam and Katy…"you make me happy"!
