My first workshop...

I have to admit I was pretty nervous in the run-up to my first home workshop.. but I really needn't have worried! Teresa was the perfect hostess and I knew several of the guests already from the Hailsham crop. Unexpectedly, though, the ladies were so absorbed by the Idea Book & Catalogue and my card samples that we just didn't get around to making anything! It was a fun evening nonetheless, and I can't wait to see what my first customers create with their new Stampin' Up! purchases.

Here's a layout I made recently using the versatile 'Sweet Pea' double-sided paper stack. It features my first son as a nine-month-old (aah, he was so cute!).

Cardstock - Whisper White, Bashful Blue, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive
Papers - Sweet Pea paper stack
Stamps - My Sweet Pea
Punch - Butterfly; Eyelet Border
Ink - Versamark
Other - White Embossing Powder, Button, Thickers letter stickers, sheer white ribbon, Liquid Pearls

I misted the butterfly with water and scrunched it up, unfolded it and allowed it to dry.
The flowers were stamped with Versamark and embossed with white embossing powder.

I'll be back tomorrow with a Father's Day card..

Thanks for looking!
