Craft Party, thanks Elmer's! (oh, and giveaway!)

Elmer's Products sent me a whole craft party kit to try out.  My kind of fun - I LOVE crafting in groups!  So I had my 2 girls invite a few friends and we all had a super fun time.

The supplies came in this box - I enjoy super fun packaging, and it doesn't get better than a crate and burlap sacks:

There were 5 kid kits and one adult kit.  All set up and ready - - 

When the girls arrived, I took several pictures.  Individuals and group shots.  This was my favorite:

Then I immediately uploaded them to one-hour photo.  The girls started on their "summer memory boards" - write fun things they'd done this summer, decorate it, etc. I told them to leave room for pictures.  My favorite thing in their kits, the "glue spots" - little dots of sticky - - those were so handy!  During the fun of decorating:

Then after about 30 minutes the pictures were ready to be picked up.  I sent my craft helper Kate to grab them.  I think the girls really liked having pictures of themselves for their boards.

Finished fronts:
Finished backs:

So, why should we have all the fun - - you too could have a craft party!!  You could win one adult and two kid craft camp kits (winners must be U.S. residents).

To enter --

Giveaway will end Friday, Aug 5th, around noon.  Good luck!
