OPERATION SMILE ART WORK GIVE AWAY AND HOW WE RAISED A SMILE ON THE 5TH ANNUAL NATIONAL MARY GUNN FUNN DAY

The Super Glue Guys proudly present
the
Fifth Annual National Mary Gunn FUNN Day
Operation Smile FUNNd Raiser
There was MUCH planning and the countdown to
the 5th Annual National Mary Gunn FUNN Day
was busy good.

http://marygunnfunn.blogspot.com/
The Super Glue Guys
were busy looking for things to finish
as this was going to be a 
very special day.
The thought of helping a child and family with a life changing
surgery is serious business.

http://marygunnfunn.blogspot.com/
Yes, everything looked pretty ready.

http://marygunnfunn.blogspot.com/
The Valentine card kitts were ready for everyone to make.

The Swag baggs & bundles of cards were ready to give out to the FUNN Friends.

The Balloon FUNN POP prizes were ready.

It was time for the guests to join us!
There were ready to play and help support OPERATION SMILE
#ctmhoperationsmile

In my eyes, my FUNN Friends were ALL Super Heroes!
It was like a Super Hero convention, and so 
of course, the SUPER GLUE GUYS were there for a photo op!

Can you tell who the Super Heroes in the middle are?







These are the SUPER HEROES who made a smile happen!


Who wouldn't want to help?

To come, I asked a $5 donation - so right away, we had a tidy nest egg started!
There was a "garage sale" area with irresistible prices - good for everyone!
Card Stock, B&T, My Acrylix Stamp Sets, Picture My Life cards, and pre-made layouts!

There was some teachin' time from moi to show off some great 
CLOSE TO MY HEART
products!

Like FUNN Close To My Heart Cricut Cart photo op props.




Aren't we cute?
YES! We are!


and when it came time to show off the new
CLOSE TO MY HEART 
Workshop Your Way Regatta, 
it was time to put on our sailor hatts!

          

You really have to be a good sailor to be a FUNN Friend!

LOOK AT MY FACE - MAKES YOU SMILE!

We did couple water color technique demos
 (with the help of my FUNN Friends Louise & Karen)
including this pretty card.
