snowmen and Kimmie day

Hello all!

First of all, I just have to say what an AWESOME day at Kraftin' Kimmie Day! If you didn't have the chance to attend this second annual event, be sure and check it out next year! I'll include a few photos here. I sat with craftin' buddy and SGD co-worker Cheri - and we had a BLAST. We even managed the most yummy buffet brunch (omg - who doesn't love brunch?). But now I am POOPED out! Phew, time for a hot bath and BED....

While I was there - we made 4 make and takes - and they were GORGEOUS! Finally I managed to get my shadow technique Copic lesson with Melanie Holtz - I've been wanting to do this for over two years - what a treat!

And I managed to finish my design team High Hopes creation for this week (be sure and check out our challenge on Tuesday - what a fantastic way to win some beautiful stamps of your choice). If you haven't seen the new High Hopes release - you have to see them. They are honestly my favourite ever. And some of my favourite Christmas stamps. Sheila JUST got them in (I was snooping on the weekend - shhh - don't tell her!) so make sure you drop in or online and grab them before they're GONE!

So here is my High Hopes creation.

I LOVE this new Christmas paper in non-traditional bright colours. It's My Mind's Eye 12 Days of Christmas. It has some of my favourite colours in it, and those who know me well know how I will take any opportunity to use my BG's! I've also used some brand new Spellbinders I picked up today - can you ever have too many of these?? And the gorgeous gems are brand new as well from Prima. So many beautiful new things in the store - it's a good job I work here to pay for my habit! Good grief!
Tuesday's challenge at High Hopes will be "ribbon, lace, or twine" so I've used some twine from the Twinery that we got at Kimmie Day today (thanks Kim!)
