Vintage Vogue for friend

Hello there, I thought I better update this blog as I was starting to get emails asking me whether I was alive LOL. End of the month are so stressful, as is at this time my Virtual Hostess clubs are due so is a bit of a task keeping everything in order. Talking about clubs I have a new one starting as soon as is full so if you fancy being part of the next one please get in touch with me at You can find more details HERE.
I am sharing with you today my very last class over at StampWith Us .
Is very hard not to fall in love with this set. This was designed with my friend Julie in mind, is her Birthday gift( is ok she doesn't read this blog so I am ok sharing it), and I choose the colours to match her interior her fave colour is brown as well. So I paired chocolate chip with Really Rust and Kraft. The flowers were stamped in Creamy Caramel and Really Rust. The card is a version of a joy fold card but the sizes have been played with a bit. Flat back pearls finish off this elegant trio. I love adding stamping to home decor it just shows that you don't have to keep it for card and scrap pages only. 

Well I has such a nice surprise the other day. Being a demonstrator has many perks and the reward system for those hard working is very generous. Each year SU organize an Incentive Trip that demonstrators can earn, is an all expenses paid trip and I was one of the lucky ones who made it last year. We leave in 3 weeks time to the magnificent Monaco. We are staying at the most luxurious hotel ( I just love the music to the intro) and I am getting excited now. 
Of course high on the agenda is shopping for appropriate clobber with a budget fit for Primani LOL. What does one wear in Monaco I wonder? I have a shopping spree organized with my lovely downline Julie so we will both look for something together, should be fun and I am looking forward to it. I am so glad she will be there with me along with 14 other demonstrators from UK< France and Germany . 
So the nice surprise was my travelling documents with an agenda of what they have in store for us on this trip. (pics. shamelessly nicked from my fellow demo Natalie O'Shea)
Lots of fab activities with leisure time thrown in( good job as I want to do a few things while there). I won't give to much away as I am hoping to blog my entire experience for my readers. 
Along with nice tags and the agenda we also had a price list for all the SPA treatments, I nearly died at the 140 Euros facial and at the 90 Euros manicure. Ah to live the high life LOL
Right well if you are lucky enough to have holidayed in Monaco let me know what are the must do things please, I would love to hear from you. 
Till next time BIG HUGS xxxx

    We went many years ago and it's a great place for people watching (and car and yacht watching!). We visited the cathedral where Princess Grace is buried, also the palace and of course the Casino (did not go in but the grounds are nice).
