LO & Cards to Share - Scrapbook Expo

Hi Girls,

Thought I would share the LO I created for my Shabby Chic Class at the Scrapbook and Papercraft Expo in Brisbane.  The kit also had instructions to make three pretty cards.  A huge thank you to the lovely Nicole from Craft Queen for giving me the opportunity to tutor at the Show and for all your help and support.  I had a blast and met so many lovely ladies.. they were fantastic and made teaching the class a wonderful experience.

This was my 1st time around tutoring at the show and I have to admit I was so nervous on my 1st day.  Thank you so much to the ladies who were so kind and patient with me my 1st time around.   I ended up streamlining my class notes and days 2 and 3 went like a breeze.  I received such lovely feedback and was really excited to see how beautiful all the pages looked when they were completed... so many gorgeous photos to ooh and ahh over.  A big thank you to Deena who helped me get through my 1st day, and who took my class on the last day.. you were fantastic!!  A huge thank you to the gorgeous Karlene Fahey who  was my assistant on days 2 and 3.. you were fabulous and a great sounding board.  Thanks also to all the Scrapmatts team who were wonderfully supportive.. love you girls!!!

It was fabulous to finally meet Julie Winks, whose work I absolutely adore, all the Craft Queen girls and Julie Ousten who is such a sweetie.  I was able to meet so many gorgeous girls who I had previously only known online... one of them being Louise Nelson, who is also one of my idols and such a lovely person.  Who knows I might even get to do it all again next year!!!

You Are My Most Favourite Memory

This LO was created using some of Julie Ousten's new 8x8 Collections Elements papers and butterflies (one of my all time fav products), beautiful ribbons and embellishments from Craft Queen and some Kaisercraft and Prima pp's.  Lots of distressing, inking, layering and fussy cutting and a pretty little altered dress form to finish it off.
