Paper Crafts Festival at Penrith

Hello Blog Friends - I am sharing some photos with you from the Paper Crafts Festival at Penrith on November 1,2 and 3.  I was both honoured and excited to be asked to teach some Workshops by the lovely Jane Clark.

While I was there I had the pleasure of having breakfast with Sallianne McClelland from Art-Is You Art Retreats, Sallianne also participated my Workshop - nothing like a little bit of pressure! LOL!

I am grateful that my husband, Rinaldo Di Battista  is a photographer and created these collages for me.

You can get an idea of the Paper Crafts Festival - such a great  atmosphere and so many fabulous people!  I had the pleasure of meeting Greg Sukendro, Photographic Stylist for Express Media - I love the way Greg makes cards look in the Australian Cardmaking, Stamping and Papercraft Magazine - such a talent.

There was something there for everyone - exhibits, demonstrations and so many products to see - check out those gorgeous glass jars full of roses - how I would love to have taken those home!

The bags of goods that left the Paper Crafts Festival were too many to count - some very dedicated husbands were there alongside their wives, helping carry all of the purchases - either that or keeping an eye on how much they were spending! LOL!

I will be back with another post tomorrow sharing photos of my Workshop - I hope you are able to come back and have a look - share in the experience  with us.

Thank you for your comments and all of the support you give me - you make blogging such an amazing place to be!! Your encouragement is such a blessing for me - it makes my day! God bless you!
