And relax....

What a busy weekend! I've had a fantastic weekend at The Papeterie's big birthday bash - thankyou to everyone who came along and helped us celebrate. It was lovely to meet lots of new faces and old friends.
A special wee wave to the lovely Liz and your sister - I promise to try harder to post more often on my blog :)
Pop on over to The Papeterie blog to see some pics from the weekend, and also the results of the card competition and the birthday raffle. AND as if that wasn't enough, Charlotte is offering some fab candy to celebrate their birthday and the bloagaversary - you have to be in it to win it. You could win a deep box full of a selection of their cardstock, a set of spellbinders nesties and a large embossing folder....
So this week I'm making up some samples for my demo and class on Saturday at The Papeterie. This week my class will be using Letraset Flexmarkers. There are still place available, so if you fancy learning how to use these pens, either independently or alongside your promarkers then phone 01224 802337 to book your place.

So I'm going to leave you with a couple of samples I made for last weekend featuring the gorgeous new Bella stamps from Wild Rose Studio - The Papeterie stocks all of these stamps, the printed panels and co-ordinating paper packs.

Sounds like you had a fab time Debbi. I wish I lived closer to be able to come to your colouring classes but alas it is a bit too far away! :(
