Basket Bunch Bunco

The adorable Basket Bunch stamp set was the featured set at this month's Spring and Easter themed Bunco.  Each guest who attended both Sunday and Monday took home one of these simple speckled jellybean favors.

I LOVE this adorable bunny who just looks so sweet as the focal point of this simple candy bag topper.  These treat bags were made with our 2 x 6 cellophane bags. I cut each bag in half and used a heat sealer to seal them so I could make two treats out of every bag.

Speaking of treats!  I have to admit, it is a treat to spend time with these lovely people every month.  We laugh, we share, we play, we laugh some more.

I love the spirit of the friends who come over to join the fun.

Since our theme was Spring, I love how Jennifer and her son came dressed and ready for St. Patricks day!

And then there was Patti who looked so cute with her butterfly headband as she fluttered from table to table.

Our Aloha Prize this month was this cute bunny shaped box of Reese's peanut butter cups.

I just added some grass to the bottom with Cucumber Crush card stock and our fringe scissors.   I then used the Succulent Framelits to embellish the box with colorful spring flowers.

Terry got the prize early and was hoping it was hers to keep!

But on Sunday, it was Shelly who got to take home the special prize.  I love the smile on Jennifer's face and how happy she is for Shelly.  It's one of the things I love most about these gatherings.  All the love, support and friendship shared by all.

On Monday night during dinner, I sat and listened to this group share about the "good old days".  They spoke about restaurants on the island that they used to love to go to when they were young.  Then they spoke of their love of dancing and the places they liked to go dance for some good clean fun.

The conversation turned to music and before you know it the Average White Band's top hits played loudly and everyone was grovin' every time we switched tables.

This gave these two the opportunity to demonstrate one of their favorite dances, the Bump.

I love the times we share together.  I feel so blessed to have the opportunity to provide an atmosphere every month to share creativity where people can escape for a couple of hours of food, fellowship and fun with friends.
