Shoebox Swap at Subway on Sunday

Today’s blog post has a corporate sponsor.  Today’s post is brought to you by Subway.  Subway: Eat Fresh.

When Stampin’ Up! announced that Atlanta would be home to one of the nation-wide Catalog Premier Parties, I knew I would have to host some sort of get-together in Atlanta.  I posted invitations on my blog for weeks on end.  Like other Shoebox Swaps we’ve hosted, this one was held at a Subway shop owned by Pam’s parents.  Subway: Eat Fresh.

Each person designed a card and brought “the makings” of that card for everyone.  We set up stations and alternated around the room, each making the other’s cards.  At the end of the day, we had made a whole bunch of beautiful cards.  Here are some pictures of the participants and their lovely cards.  You’ll notice we’re all surrounded by the signage of Subway.  Subway: Eat Fresh.
