Today I hosted a SU Workshop run by my friend Ann - she is an incredible teacher and I never come away from time with Ann without learning something and being inspired!
Today we had a lot of fun - I am not sure if there is more laughter or stamping at these events - you can see the photos further down the post to see what we got up to today....
Our Make and Take was created using the SU Nature Walk set - my DH got me this set for Mother's Day and it was great to use it for the first time (shhhh!) Don't you love collage - Ann is so good at it, I have admired her cards and loved creating this one!!
We stamped, sponged, coloured and spritzed - and this is the end result - what do you think!?!
Ann also showed us more uses for our Chalks/Pastels - something I use everyday - I love them used with Versamark
and created some handmade flowers - you will see those on some projects in the future....
On the lighter side of things we took a break for some 'planking'......
that was inspired by these photos of my Mum
What a gal - I learnt everything I know from her! LOL! This woman raised 4 children and 14 Foster children - never a dull moment I can tell you! Thanks Mum for the laugh today - this was the last thing I expected when I opened an email - it made me laugh out loud - YOU ROCK MUM! LOL!
We finished off a fun time with sweet Pavlova and coffee - and lots of fabulous company - a recipe for a perfect day!
I would like to thanks the wonderful ladies who came today, you all helped me get a new set of Chalks/Pastels - and I am very grateful - not to mention the Embossing Folders and Stamps that I am adding to my collection because of SU's amazing deal and my wonderful friends!!
