Wow what a magical day, it has been at the Stitch & Craft last Friday. I finally made it and met Dawn, JJ, Paula and Catherine. Dawn was wonderfully welcoming and it was so nice to meet her in the flesh (and yes she's truly amazing). Vince and I just thought it would be a quick meet and greet as we know Dawn is very busy but she took the time to be with us all the way and we ended up doing a workshop (Thank you Dawn). To say it was friendly is actually wrong, it felt like being welcomed into a family.
I knew Paula already from last year and we kept in touch through our blogs but as soon as she saw me, it was like meeting an old friend and we carried on were we left off last time. Dawn is such a charismatic person, I just couldn't believe it that I finally met her. We all had good chats with JJ and Catherine (she's even nicer in person).
Anyway everybody were uber-nice and that really made my day. It's 'embossed' in my mind and I will never forget it. I came back home with a big grin on my face as I had so much fun. Vince was really happy too as he had such a good time.
These are close up details for the card I made for Dawn, I've used K&Co papers and two HOTP templates for the flowers and to distance the slits to weave the strips of papers (I'll be doing a tutorial about this technique very soon). Stamp is Michael Strong and brads from Stampin' Up, I also used the big 7X10 cards that were sold at QVC recently.
