Bloggers Day Out & Designing With The Stars Contest

Hi Everyone!
I hope you all had a great weekend:).
My boys were home last week & so was my husband for much of the time, which was really NICE.
Getting back to reality today & into the swing of things again.
Last Friday there was a Bloggers Day Out for bloggers in the NY area, which I was lucky enough to attend.
It was hosted by Miriam of Hometalk
We spent the morning with Janna & Greg of Cutting Edge Stencils in Ramsey, NJ.
They gave us a step by step lesson on
How To Stencil , which Kelly wrote about in her blog.
She also posted in Hometalk too.
 This is us:).
Eclectically Vintage
From left to right, is Laura of Pet Scribbles, Evey of Sweet Song Bird , Kelly from Electically Vintage, Miriam of Hometalk, Jennifer of Days of Chalk and Chocolate, me, Laura of Finding Home, and Janna of Cutting Edge Stencils.
Janna shows us how to start.
Greg shows us how to finish the edges.
Pretty amazing right?
BTW, Cutting Edge Stencils is doing a giveaway
for this stencil -The Charlotte on thier blog today.
We had so much fun & I was so happy to meet these amazing, kind, funny & talented ladies!
Ok, so onto the Blogger Contest & A BIG FAVOR.
