OFF AGAIN....

Having just returned (yesterday) from 4 days away in Portugal teaching at a fabulous event held by Patricia Villas-Boas (yes she is the sister of football manager Andre) but I don't think she plays football :) !!! I got to spend a little time with the lovely Michelle Johnson who works her magic for Stix 2 and she showed me some tricks with their glue gun... So what did I do ??? I made a necklace, of course !!!
It was so quick and simple, it looks gorgeous and it's now packed in my case... Tell you about that in a mo.
I have to say Patricia's hosting skills were amazing she took us to some fab restaurants, and fed us till we could eat no more, but I'm not complaining... Here's just a few snippets of the food sampled.


 What can I say...strawberry pur矇e, ice cream and chocolate !!!

 Manoli and Michelle eyeing up each other's desserts


 The lovely Monica with Portugese cookies on our arrival !!
We did do some work whilst we were there... Honest !!!

The beautiful beach in Porto.
And now I'm back home and I've unpacked my suitcase only to pack it all up again, as I fly out to Orlando tomorrow to teach at the Collings a Event then on to North and South Carolina to teach at some fab stores there.
So I'll keep you updated with my food endeavours ... Obviously .... I actually get requests to post foodie pics...I'm sure it's so you can enjoy it and I'll take all the calories LOL.
Hugs

3 and counting....

We’re at the 3rd trade show.... this year !!!!!!
To say I’m tired is an understatement, but there’s something about the shows plus adrenaline that just keeps you going.
There’s nothing better than teaching people new techniques and that’s what these shows are all about. That and having fun of course !!!
We’re all set up...this is the calm before the storm ;) we have so many new things to show this year, it makes it all the more exciting.
One of the best things about trade show shows is meeting up with buddies in the industry and even though I see Leandra and Mark (PaperArtsy) every week (we quiz together) it was great to go out with them last night.

Richard and Mark look like they’re praying, when in fact they were having a bald off 不不不不 Steve has more hair than both of them put together so as a gesture of kindness he hid his. 不不不不不  It’s now 6am, I’m ready to jump in the shower and get this day started... think of me standing from 8am to 6pm.... I hope you get to sit a lot m…

One for the Mums ...

In celebration of the fabulous Catherine Pooler Inks about to hit the store, I thought I'd pop a little card on here. Take a folded card base, I always make mine from card stock, then I know the piece on top is going to match perfectly. then cut a smaller piece and perforate the edges, you can use a perforating blade, if your trimmer has one, or there are many dies out there that do this in a snip ! Using the WOW! Embossing Powder Layered Hearts Stamps, I inked up and stamped using the Catherine Pooler Daydream, Aquatini and Skylight Inks.
Embellish with a Uni Ball Signo White Gel Pen, one of my favourites !!!
Finish off with the Mothers day sentiment from the WOW! Embossing Powder Everyday Sentiment Stamps, inked in Versafine Onyx Black, adhere with foam pads. Check out PAPERBOX for a great selection  of card stock. Thanks for looking
