6th Annual BBQ

I just finished my 6th annual summer bbq for all my valued clientelles. As always, it was spectacular. Everyone enjoyed themselves and the weather held up during the afternoon. I could not believe how hot it was until I was demoing some of the new items from the 2008-2009 Fall catalogue … the sweat just came pouring down.

Unfortunately I don’t have any pictures for you, but I have taken pictures of our make & takes. I provided 3 levels of stamping for my guests.

Here they are:

(beginner) This card was using the Bella Rosa DP with the mellow moss grossgrain ribbon. The only stamping that they used was the “The way to KNOW LIFE …”. Everyone finished this quite fast.

(intermediate) Stamps Embrace with Life. This we used the bala breeze paper, incorporating with the pacific point. This we water colored with aqua painters using the two incolors. Added a brad and dimensioned it.

(advance) Again, using the in color, Pacific Point, tangerine orange and DP. We used the sock monkey. This was quite difficult for most of them as they have indicated it too time consuming (cutting out), but still loved the idea of using the DP to cover the body.
