Hi friends! Happy Friday! Today I have some fun pics from The Glitter Academy I co-hosted a few weeks ago… but first… have you checked out the 3 year blogiversary giveaway? Make sure to enter HERE. There is some fabulous prizes up for grabs including a CAMEO, two HUGE bundles of twine and lots more!

One of the Glitter Academy guests summed it up best on Facebook the day after our event:

“The 11th Commandment: Never ever miss a Glitter Academy event! We had the best time! Thank you!”

-Kim W.

And she is right- the night was amazing!!!!!

Over 100 local ladies met at The Old spaghetti Factory in Chandler, AZ.

(Can I just pause here for a second and give a shout out to the AMAZING staff? Serving all of us was probably not the easiest thing they could have spent their Friday night doing, but we had the best service and the happiest staff ever!)

We had an incredible dessert table that was almost too pretty to touch! Aimée and Bettijo from Paging Supermom really outdid themselves and we were all so grateful for them! The glitter printables are available for download here.

There were games…

and winners…

and FABULOUS make-and-takes from Poppy Seed Projects! You must check them out!
The crafts they provided were awesome! I absolutely love them!

The night was a total blast and we appreciate those of you who came and made it so fun.
