Life is busy!! as if you dont already know that

Hello, WoW!! talk about busy.. this SU buisness is really keeping me on my toes!! I ve attended the Open Night in London on the 24 of jan. and it was a lovely night, met some of the other demos and fellows UKS ers and of course Shelli Gardner the co founder and CEO of SU was there, such an incredible woman, stuningly beautiful and really funny. There were a few demostrations that took place using a variety of products, a few speeches about the history of the company and how it all began, also found out that the company is worth 295 millions dollars What??? Thats an awfull lot of stamps isn t it?lol, after we made two lovely cards , I was sharing a table with Paula Pasqual and her gorgeous friend (whose name I forgot) but she said that she s gona check the blogaroo so if you re reading this my lovely, I m sorry I m such a short memory pillock. They were really fun and we had a giggle, took my sis along with me and she thoroughly enjoyed it. This are the cards we made.

I ve also got to meet the gorgeous Paula Iaciofano( SU country manager), and before the night I found out the she has recently became engaged so decided to make her a congratulations card. I ve used my SU circle punches to create this flower now you will have to excuse the quality of the picture, it was taken just as the night was setting so no amount of editing would have made this a good one, but is the only one I ve got.
Made a box as well(you know me and my boxes lol) and just used one of the acrylic buterflies from Heidi swapp and some half backed pearls. It looks a bit bare but it had some big wide organza ribbon tied to it so looked a bit better.
She seemed delighted with it and gave me a big hug. It was an aww moment*smile*

Now I have finally held my first stamp camp this saturday and it was a success, the ladies who attended were delighted with the projects I ve designed and I ve received some good feedback regarding the quality of the products and there was even a good amount of sales that took place. Yipee lol, These were the projects that I ve designed for the make and take a card, and a super quick and easy box. Now initially I was gonna do a full day event with more than two projects to complete but decided against it( I think I was too scared to commit to a such long schedule for my first event) and only did a 3 hour one, wich was just perfect. Here are the samples.

This box was brought to my attention by my fellow demo Helen(yhenks hunni) is a very easy one like I said and since making it I ve realised that I ve made this box in the past in fact I ve made one for the my DT assesment with the oct. kit(I think) but on a much larger scale. Find instructions here, this lady is great!!

Ok now I have still got some spaces left for a stampers ten i m organising , and if you re wondering what the heck a stampers ten is, I ll explain(is quite exciting): 10 people join and agree to spend each month a min. of £15.00, each month in turn one of the ladies in the group will get to be the hostess for that month(we will pull names from a hat to determine whos goes first) wich means she will benefit from getting the freebie stamp set of her choice and the money to spend as she chooses. This is such a fun and easy way of still getting the benefits but without having to fork out £150.00 at once wich means you spread the cost a bit, and belive me it wont take you long to spend £15.00 in the catalog, after receiving your first lot of products you will realise just how fabulos quality those are. I mean they ve been going in the States for 19 years now, and we all know just how competitive the US crafting market is there. Also if you decide to join you will get a catalogue absolutely free from me, it will cost you nothing, nada , zilch!lol

Ok then I m off now but by the time I come back to check on this you d better inundate me with offers for this or else i ll have to find out where you live lol. Take care my lovelies, see ya!!!
