A wonderful weekend and other news

Half term started well with Lynne arriving from Scotland on Friday night. On Saturday we went up to the Be Creative Launch and did make and take sessions throughout the day. It was lovely to meet everyone who came along and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Here are just a few of the creations made by people who visited.
Here is Janet with her wonderful creation...
Helen and her sister made the next two...

I am only sorry I didn't get the chance to snap a few more as we went along. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and look forward to doing some more workshops soon. One of the popular products that we were trying out was the Be Creative Alcohol Markers. As a member of their design team, I was lucky enough to get to play with these beauties...
There are 100 different colours in the range and I am very impressed by the quality of the ink. Here is a colour chart that I made whilst I get used to them.
The day I recieved them I just couldn't do anything but colour, and here is what I did!

On Sunday, which was Lynne's Birthday, we went to Stamp Magic at Doncaster Dome. We bumped into lots of people we knew and had a great time. It was lovely to see some new things being demoed too. We had so much fun, especially when my purchases were put through a till and they came out as this!!!
 Seriously, I didn't spend that much!!! I can't wait to get playing with my goodies, but Steve is off work this week so we are going to have some time together. I am also looking forward to seeing what Lynne does with her goodies too!
I will leave you with a card made with more Be creative papers. The poinsettia was coloured with Be creative markers and the Die is from Frantic Stamper, also available from Once Upon a Stamp.
Thanks so much for looking and for all your lovely comments. I hope to catch up with all you lovely people who leave me comments soon!
