Last Saturday I put on our annual Team Training Day, which is an all day event after Convention. (We have morning trainings all year long as well). It was a lot of fun and always is! I stress and stress, but should know by now not to worry as the ladies theselves are what make the day fun.
Here is a quick pic from my phone of some of them hard at "work":
Here is a pic of my swap, using the upcoming Happy Day stamp set:
It's a simple design, but was a series of quite a few steps to get it all right. I love the vintage medallion image in that set, which can be used like this or maybe in a very vivid black and white design.
You'll notice these cute little, new flowers. Stampin' Up! is introducing Clay Molds to our repetoire and they are F-U-N!! I had a very good play with them and then still learned more about what to do and how to from my team on Saturday.
These particular ones I paid my Sofie (11) in chocolate to make for me. We dyed the clay Crumb Cake and then molded them. I topped them off by dipping them into Pink Pirouette ink. Clay and Moulds available July 2!
Hope you've enjoyed! And I must finish with this rather bad photo of a funny moment . . at the end of my annual training day, I always give recognition to my team for varous achievements. This is a quick snap of Karen Rogers running for her hug and flower from my husband, Rob, and step-son, Bayley. the position of her feet here makes me laugh. And Rob's stance, bracing himself, makes me laugh.
And the funny thing is she ran and jumped and wrapped her legs around him! Brought the house down. I fired her under my breath after that. All in jest! You just can't replace those people who make things fun. Lots of love to my team!
