Wednesday's lunch was at a tepanyaki restaurant at Broadbeach. We had a relaxing afternoon did some shopping and...
That night we went to pick up our convention bags and start swapping our cards with other demos.
We had a make and take session each of the three convention days. This was day 1.
A very simple little notecard but a great technique using sponge daubers and using Mint Macaron and Cucumber crush inks.
And there is of course a brand new Ronald MacDonald house charity stamp set (which from the sale of each set) $3 is donated to support families of sick children in hospital.
The in-colours were up on the display board! Why are they all food related?
Watermelon wonder with Mint macarons?
Tip top taupe spread with delightful Dijon mustard anyone?
Washed down with a cucumber crush.
Every morning was another fun adventure. What will be revealed today?
New stamping kits to create with- this wish list is getting incredibly long.
There are many changes going on at Stampin' Up!
Changes to the stamping rewards and hostess dollars - no MDS, no more Blendabilities.
But we've had a very strong first quarter of the year... Best sales figures ever in fact!
Here's Wanda winning the prize patrol !
And the Australian office manager Aaron, giving us a demo of how to indoor skydive.
I forget what the point of this was but it was kind of funny at the time.
On Friday night we did have a category 1 cyclone but did that deter us from going out to the awards night party?
Not at all because we knew that this gorgeous lady Bonnie Thurber would be there ( now married for two hundred and six days).
Here is us in front of the main stage.
And here is moi with the lovely Denielle.
Another make and take on day 3. Love the watercolour paper with watermelon watercolouring!
This is the coolest stamp set.
