8th Anniversary Celebration!


Happy 8th Anniversary
Memories & More!!! 


We've been celebrating here at the store; it's a big bash for Memories & More!  All the fuss and excitement is about our eight successful years and it's still going strong thanks to our amazing customers!  So, we thought we'd set aside some time for fun and appreciation at our 8th Anniversary crop!

The day started with welcome bags and party favors.  Each instructor taught a card class so that everyone went home with four beautiful cards!




Ollie made sure to keep everyone in line and on task.   He also acted as the resident guard dog....the place was buzzing with people!


Here we are 'making memories' and having a great time with all the customers who made it in to celebrate!


Although we worked hard and shopped hard, there was still time to play!  Lots of prizes and drawings grew the excitement even more!



The prizes, shopping and projects were all great but the food...oh my!  Here is Gina digging in!


Okay, really she was just getting the food ready for everyone.  He he...she knows how to throw a lovely party and everyone had a spectacular time!


The best part about it?  We get to do it all over again on Friday, June 22nd!  

If you didn't get to make to one of these events, no worries.  We are having so much fun, we will definitely be finding another reason to celebrate very soon!  

Hope you find inspiration in your day!

Hugs,
Julie
