I had my 20 year class reunion this past weekend and I had to come up with the centerpieces for the food tables for the pre-party at the last minute. Ta-Dah!

I found these balloon weighs at the Dollar Tree, so I just jazzed them up a bit! Our school colors were purple and white, so besides tying purple and white streamers, I used my Cricut to cut a 5" star for the base of each. They were pretty simple, but they worked on short notice!

(p.s. A HUGE thanks to my dear friend, Linda Walker, for all her help!!)

"Stampin' Up Class Project"

This is what I got to make last night at a Stampin' Up class, taught by Stephanie Zeto.

I first saw this at a SU party and fell in love with it. So, when a friend of the family wanted to have a class for it, I knew I wanted to learn how to make one!

Even though this has several steps and looked like it was going to be hard to figure out, it was so worth it!! Stephanie did a great job showing us all the 'how-to's'. Kudos to her for being so patient with me! :)

Below is what the inside of the 'purse' looks like. The scalloped circles (one shown) slide in the opening 'pockets' on either end. All products used are Stampin' Up!
