The Box

I don't normally do those 'look what I got' posts, but I just had to today.. ;) Look what arrived yesterday! Holy goodness, there was a ton of stuff packed in there. I'm just overwhelmed!!! The Fed Ex man pulled up and unloaded it...



Then, he literally rolled it into the foyer. It was too heavy to lift.



Here's a view of what it looked like when I first opened it... (Um, yes, I look gross in this shot but it was the end of a long day and I have a nasty cold!!!)




I spread it all out to get a few shots. I feel like leaving it down in the living room for a while since I have to find space for it all in my scraproom now. ;) Plus, it looks like Christmas morning down there.



Here's a closer view of the goodies...







The sponsors were all extremely generous! A huge thanks to Memory Makers and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L, ANW Crestwood, Core'dinations, Die Cuts With A View, Dove of the East, Helmar, K & Company, Karen Foster Design, Me & My Big Ideas, Miss Elizabeth's, Pioneer Photo Albums, PreserveIt Frames, Prism Paper, Ranger, Tamron, Therm O Web (Mambi), Three Bugs In A Rug, We R Memory Keepers .

Can't wait to play!!!
