*Spark* photos & 39

9.14.10-


I wanted to share some photos from *Spark* that I attended this past weekend. There was so much to see & take in. Even the building itself was decorated! I can't imagine the time it took to do that, let alone the amount of chalk it took to create it, but it was so fun to pull in the parking lot & be greeted by the chalk art. I loved the giant letters with the lights around them, they looked so cute at night.




















The ladies in charge, Margie, Rhonna & Liz are super talented & creative. The worked so hard to put this all together right down to the tinest detail. The Main Hall was AMAZING! When I turned the corner to walk into it the first time it almost took my breath away. So much fun, whimsy, colorful decorations hanging from the rafters. I mean who thinks to hang a vintage pink bike from the ceiling-darling!















I loved this paper "chandelier" made out of just strips of colorful scrapbook paper & sewn together, darling.


Each table had it's own centerpiece, old typewriters, monopoly boards & playing pieces, vintage records, old cameras it was just so fun to see.{by the way these are taken with our little point & shoot camera but after taking a photography class I asked Santa to bring me a NICE camera. Hope he delivers- wink, wink! }

You can see much better {professional looking} photos on the Spark website or get linked to other photos from there.

I think I will post tomorrow about what I learned at Spark. I made a list of 10 things each night so I wouldn't forget a thing, it was such a great experience.



Last but not least I got to share the weekend with my neighbor, friend & now *Spark*-Sister, Nicole & her Mom, Sydney. Nicole & I had been talking & planning on going to this for a year & we were so excited! It was fun to be with someone that enjoyed every second & appreciated every little detail of the weekend. Thanks Nicole!

I wish I would have taken more pictures of the terrific & talented other women that I met from all around the country. I was amazed at all their talents & creations.

Can't wait for next year!
