Well, the circle crop in Orlando was great fun. The theme was 'April showers bring May flowers'
None of us had much time for crafting, there was a Yudu demonstration, and lots of other demos to keep everyone busy....here is Charity Hassel supervising her really cute make and take....
The room had some beautiful decorations...... I loved this window box full of mushrooms and it was a joy to see some of the design team samples. These are by Cindy Royal, and I can't begin tell you how perfect they were, you know that feeling when you pick up a handmade card, and it's quite heavy in your hands and just screams QUALITY - that's what these were like. Thank you Cindy for letting me show these here
We all had to make a calling card, to swap with the others, here are some of the ones I collected
and here is the one I made...... The flower was cut from Serenade at 2 1/2", 2" and 1 1/2", spritzed quite liberally with water from a mini mister and crumpled up into a little ball when wet. I uncrumpled them and left them to dry, then added some card candi to the centre, and a sprinkling of seed beads. The black leaves are a sissix die
I had some flowers left over, couldn't waste them, so they came in handy for this card. The leaves were cut from the Straight from the Nest cartridge
I won the Yudu in the draw, but gave it away! I really couldn't see myself screen printing stuff, I have enough crafting obsessions going on, so I gave it away to someone who was longing for one.
I was a bit late getting there. The newly installed TomTom on my phone and I had a bit of a disagreement. She kept telling me to turn right, and silly me, with my very warped sense of direction, thought 'no, that can't be right' and carried straight on. So I basically mislaid a thundering great motorway that runs from west to east, and had to pootle along on country roads. Coming home was even worse, it was dark, and I not only mislaid a motorway, I mislaid a whole road and found myself careering along a dirt track in the middle of the very dark, very unlit, very scary countryside. I really shouldn't be allowed out......Still, here I am, safe and sound
