RVA craft weekend in review

Because I promised all of my pretty classmates a million pictures, this will be a very picture-filled post :) Even more than the last one. The last day of the RVA Craft Weekend was bittersweet. I took a lot of great classes, hung out with new friends, ate pizza house, red velvet cupcakes, and Reeces peanut butter cups, took lots of pictures, and had soooooo much fun at the craft party.
