You know I mentioned my throat infection last time I blogged? well it really took hold of me and I was completely out of action all last week which is never good especially when you haven't planned taking a week off IYKWIM. A few trips to doc. plus a dreaded antibiotics course, lemon, honey, throat lozenges, gargles with various remedies and only this last Monday I started feeling like I was getting better.
I have tons to share so hopefully things will get back to normal around here as I really missed my blogging!!
On Sunday we had our Quarterly Team Training Event and I was determined to be there, what a FAB we had!!!.
I planned on being a bit more quiet then normal just so I don't put more strain on my vocal cords and did you think it happened? I was sounding terrible by the end of the day HAHA.
We had such a BLAST it really was a fabulous day. Lovely swaps, lovely demonstrations and lovely people whom I love dearly, some from our extended team and some from other teams all coming together and having a FUN day. Here's some of the fab things we got up to and some of the projects.
First the demos
Carole showed us how to use the Icicle rub ons and acetate, she also demoed those fabulous glitter baubles I LOVE them !!
How fabulous do they look? and you need to believe that they are even better IRL>
Her table looked gorgeous as well with lots of card samples here's just 3 of them, I love the acetate windows one
Marlene demoed some of the most beautiful sculpted flowers
My fave item from her table ( it was hard to choose) was this lovely cone
What about this?Lovely colours, note how Marlene used the bird wing from the Extra Large Bird Punch to add the leaves to the roses.
Thank you so much Marlene for your demo on the day, fab stuff!!! xx
I love learning from our team they are such a FAB bunch of talented girls!! I will show you the swaps soon THEY ARE AMAZING !!
Next I will share some of the projects we did
First one a simple brayering technique
Bashful Blue with a hint of chocolate and plenty of dazzling diamonds. Dasher made an appearance of course I just love him!!.
Second card was a Christmas card using a non Christmassy set .
Next Bekka designed a wonderful Planner made from envelopes so clever and so very cute.
I pinched those pics from Bekka's blog, here's the covers
The last project was a home decor banner.
I am going to leave you with a funny picture, I wish I could have shared pictures of all the girls there on the day but I am aware this post is already picture heavy and you might be already bored, however I just need to share this one with you because no matter where you go there's always ONE isn't it?
|Carol, Victoria, Vannessa and Lindsey|
