I had prepared a little something for each of them but forgot to take pictures *doh!* Kathleen did bring some great instructions for a storage system and choccies, Julie made each of us a lovely paper book that I will have to take a picture of later and upload for you all to admire as well and Sarah had a box of gorgeous yummy belgian choccies for each of us. Throw in some cake and cups of tea and coffee and you can imagine that we had a fantastic day.
We stamped quite a bit and exchanged tips and I gave a little introduction to working with copic pens and then we made little books with the BiA and I have to admit that this was great fun and the results were so good in relation to how little work it was really... Thanks to Michelle Saxon who did the demo at the Glitterpot we were all inspired and she had made it look so easy (which it was, really...).
Here is my effort, which I also will be entering in this weeks Magnolia challenge over at DoCrafts. The theme is Winter Wonderland and we were supposed to use two colours only (shades of grey and purple in my case, I cheekily forget about the brown for hair and sledge).
Tilda and sledge are coloured in Distress Ink, Papers are from Papermania, The snowflke embellishment I got from a lovely DoCrafter and I added a tiny purple gem in the centre. I cannot remember where the ribbon is from...
Let me know what you think!
