Elmer's Craft & Tell Party Recap + GIVEAWAY!

I had the pleasure of hosting a fun craft night this past weekend. And, not just any 'ole craft party, but an Elmer's Craft and Tell Party!!
This means that a few weeks ago, the UPS guy dropped a HUGE box at my door, filled with enough fantastic Elmer's and X-ACTO products for me and 10 friends to have an amazing craft night!!
After sorting out products, filling goodie bags, setting up tables, and putting together a few yummy eats, everything was ready for our night of crafting fun!
Such a great group of ladies came! In addition to "in real life friends", quite a few are fellow bloggers or hand-made business owners who all live on this same side of town. Please check them out! Rebecca {Roots & Wings Co}, Allison {All for the Boys}, Amy {Pink Bow Bath Boutique}, Trisha {Night Owl}, Laura {Pink Cake Plate}, Amy {Dealusional}, Sara {Super Saving Sense}, and Samantha {A Little Simplicity}.
Everyone stood around chatting and sampling all the wonderful food that everyone brought for quite sometime. Then, for an additional bit of fun, we even skyped with Katie from Sweet Rose Studio who hosted the same party on the other side of town!  She and I planned the parties together for the same night so ladies from both sides of town could join in the fun while not having to drive as far (when you live in a place as big as the Phoenix area, a drive across "town" can be well more than an hour)!
  Then, finally, we got around to crafting!! 
There was quite a variety of projects, from jewelry making, to birthday party invitations and decorations, Father's Day cards & gifts, scrapbooking, etc. and all of our Elmer's products worked great! 
In addition to the fun goodie bags filled with products (which I can't believe I didn't take a picture of--sorry!), we drew names out of a bag and each person got to pick an additional fun craft supply from the big 'ole Elmer's box!
Here's Sara, Amy, and Samantha showing off some of their favorite new things! 
 
So, doesn't that all look like fun?! It totally was, and here's the BEST part.....
Elmer's wants a couple of you to be able to have a similar crafty night with friends in YOUR area! So, TWO lucky readers will each win an Elmer's Craft and Tell mini-Party Pack, complete with the following items:
3  X-ACTO Retract-a-Blade knives

1 X-ACTO Decorative Edge Scissors pack
1 Circle Cutter
