We are absolutely stunned, excited, and appreciative by the number of individuals that came to celebrate the launch of all our new product lines at the 2012 Pampered Palette Open House. We actually had a much better turn out than we had at this year's dismal World of Color. Everyone had a fantastic time. They chatted, painted, laughed and ate... a little. We were so honored to have Betty Caithness join us during the Open House. Betty brought several of her pieces so we could display them during the event. We would also like to thank Betty for donating the beautiful original painting for our Grand Door Prize. The door prize winners are as follows: 
Robin Pohlman - Grand Prize - Betty Caithness original painting "New England Cove" Michele Bittel - Door Prize #1 - Scottie Foster June Seminar seat
Lucy Wirth - Door Prize #2 - iPod Touch MP3 Player
BJ Grey - Door Prize #3 - 100 Angels Book 
Donna Tucker - Door Prize #4 - $70.00 Wood Surface Package 
I am posting some of the pictures of the event for everyone the see what a great time was had by all. We are just so pleased by the turn out. Mark and I would like to thank all that attended and helped make our Open House such a HUGE success. Thank you so much. Your business and friendship are truly appreciated. In all a great time. Thank you.
