My Very First

Hi all,

I was just chatting to a friend overseas and we both cannot get over the fact that March is nearly over!!! Where is the time going???

I have now been a demo for over 2 months and even that time has evaporated. I recently held my very first workshop at my dear friends house. We made a series of 3 x 3 note tags that incorporated all things SAB. They are a direct CASE of the ones I found on Stampin' Connection by Yvonne Ashe. I do not think Yvonne has a blog (or at least I cannot find one)!!

This is what we made.......

 
 
I also made something a little speccy for the hostess....as she was my very first hosty and also a great friend to help me on my SU way. True story....she actually introduced me to SU some 5 years ago when I was a reserve "off the bench" bum-on-a-seat for a workshop she held. there I was introduced to the SU punches and from there I was hooked!!! This is what I made her.....
 
 
  
 


It was filled with ribbons, buttons and of course, chocolate!!!! The ladies (and the 3 x 10yo's) that wee there had a fun time creating. Oops....just realised a couple managed to avoid the photo!!!


 
I was lucky enough that ladies did place orders and as a nice way to say thanks, I made them the  following notecards. These were based on the ones from Mary Fish's blog here.
 
 
I learnt so much in such a short time. Hectic yet so rewarding.
