Scare Away Autism - Twilight Crop

Last Saturday I had the privilege of conducting a make 'n take for the lovely ladies at the Scare Away Autism - Twilight Crop in Oceanside.  Run by the lovely Sheila Goldsberry and Scrapbook Royalty, the event raised over $3,000 for Autism reseach.  Yeah!   My daughter joined me for the day, which was nice, because event emcee Donna Salazar brought her daughter Genna - they are the same age.  So it was fun to have moms and daughters hanging out together!  Marli got into the spirit of the event and created a Twilight themed puzzle piece for the event display....very proud when my offspring get glue-y and glitter-y for a cause!  I enjoyed seeing the Twi t-shirt contest and the fun little touches around the room (apples, anyone?) and so much Edward! 
Everyone enjoyed the make 'n take - all donations going to the cause - and Donna did Distrezz-it-All demos for the group.  I bid on several of the silent auction items, but got beat out on all but one.....the one that was a "Mystery Prize."  I won!! Yeah!!  I love a good surprise!  Then Sheila informed me that the Mystery Prize was the Zutter stuff I had donated.  LOL!  It ended up going to the previous bidder, but how prophetic is that? 

All around, a lovely day and a wonderful event.
