Indonesian Scrapbookers' gathering and swap and blog-versary party

This is the day
we've all been waiting for.
About 30 scrappers
gather around together
have fun,laugh,chat,
non-stop eating,swap things
around (which make us go "aaah"
and "oooh" every 5 minutes...),
and much much more.

Above is the group pose with
each own scrap thing,
minus two scrappers who come
a bit late later
and three others who can't come.

Here we are at the beginning
of the day...

We begin the swap
with each one introduce herself
and a little bit about 
the handmade swap of her...
(sorry I cannot post every
pic of the scrappers.)

Me with my birdcages swap
which can be used
as a hanging, clip it outside
your album, or anything.
Today I even use it for
my necklace.
I'll post the detail
of this and all the swaps
that I got 
after this post.

It's so happy to see 
that my swap bring smile to
the face of the receivers
(thanks to Titin who snapped
this moment beautifully)

Everyone's spot are like this
and it's not even the half of
the swaps that keep coming on
and on.......

Lunch break 
after the group photo's taken

and no corner are camera safe..
we got every spot covered....

celebrating our beautiful bonding,
such as this one...

and also this one,
as I am so speechless
to received this amazing gift

ten times already on this post?
Well, I don't care...)

Thank you from the bottom
of my heart, Colette.....

Half way of the fun was over.

The last agenda is still on...
and a birthday party is not
 complete without birthday cake,

Have you seen 
a blog birthday's cake
as beautiful as this?

I had tears in my eyes
when the cake artist who
kindly made this AMAZING CAKE,
said to me the day before
that this cake is
a gift for my blog-versary.
Oh, dear God.
I found so many good friends
and love till today.
And you add me one more.

This cake deserved
one special post for it..
so I'll post the cake again
*hugs to you, mba Peni....

And I shall blow that candles
It's about time...

Just to say that today is 
will be an understatement.
I come home with swollen eyes,
still swollen hands from the 
swap work days before,
swollen heart of too much
joy and gratefulness.

Also thank you to Liem Tjien
for giving me one of
your layout with our pic
together... I'll show the layout
on tomorrow post too.

And to add the fun 
to 'after the day' crazily warm
posting and tagging and chatting
on facebook,
