Yes it has been a while since I put something here because I have been so busy with Sale-a-bration and the Hamilton Extravaganza. So I will share with you why it has been busy.

On Saturday we had over 70 stampers at the Hamilton Extravaganza. At the Extravaganza, five pairs of demonstrators prepared and taught a project, moving from table to table so at the end of the day everyone who attended took home five lovely creations using a variety of techniques. Also, everyone who came recieved a bag of goodies from their demonstrator. Here are the name tags that I put on my bags...

Plus, all the demonstrators contributed items for the door prizes. I made two packs of card candy.

The embellisments were made to co-ordinate with the Pink Flamingo and Candy Lane DSP's. So that the embellishments can be easily used by the recipient, I punched circles out of left over backing from dimensionals and stuck them onto the DSP. I then put dimensionals on each of the embellishments and stuck them onto the circles. The DSP was then slid into the bottom of the cellophane bag. When you want to use any of them, just slide out the DSP, lift off the embellishment and stick it on your project. Easy (hopefully)!

There were ten door prizes in all. Here is a photo of a selection of them...
