Here's what happened...

Last night was my 5-10-15 event. It went well, except in typical Yolanda fashion, all of my prep work went out the window. I changed almost all of my cards. I didn't like the originals when it came right down to prepping the stuff. So, these are the actual cards we ended up doing.
 This cupcake green one is the exact same one as the original one I had planned on doing, I just changed it from the Chocolate Chip base because I completely spaced ordering more chocolate chip paper.  I like the way it turned out though. 
 This card is using entirely sale-a-bration stuff.  The paper, the stamp, the ribbon, and the buttons.  Now, I have to say that this card was cased.  I just have no idea where I saw it.  As soon as I find the original link, I will be posting that.  I'm sorry!
The other two cards passed my scrutiny test.  So what do you think of these new cards?  I really liked them much better than my originals.

So, as promised here's pictures of my event BEFORE people arrived.
 I had this idea that if I bought 5 of those clear boxes I could organize each of the accessories the cards need and stay organized that way.  It did work, but I realized that some of the stuff in one box I still needed for another card.  I still say the idea was pretty good.
 Here are my yummy cupcakes.  I am not a big chocolate fan, I love the vanilla, so I was surprised to see that the chocolate one's went very quickly.  I'm glad I thought outside my own little box. 
I'm still figuring things out as I go.  I realized only after we had finished the cards, that I had them only do one card and they were suppose to do two of each.  Thankfully, I had a few friends that came just to visit and I put them to work assembling cards, I thought I'd have a bunch for OWH.  It turns out that it was good because I owed them each 5 more cards.  DA!!  Like I said, I'm still figuring this out.  I'm thankful I have such a good group of friends that are so supportive and understanding.  Over all I think it was a great night.  I always love getting together with ladies and doing what I love!  Thanks for stopping by!
