Happy Monday & this weeks PPA!

I had a super busy Stampin' weekend! This weekend was the 3rd Stampinpalooza hosted by my upline Caroline LeBel. And what a fantastic weekend it was! The Guest speaker was none other than my American Mentor Ronda Wade. I could listen to that woman speak for hours!! Thankfully because I train with her I get to have a one-on-one call with her this evening! If you are interested in training with Ronda, contact me for more info.

Here is a picture of Donna Lee, Ronda Wade, Myself and Susy Godinho on Saturday. See you can tell we are having a great time!

They took pictures of me presenting (I demo'd how to make rag quilt purses, with sewing and all) but I look terrible in all of them! I obviously talk with my hands a lot! Or I sit around doing jazz hands all day long or something! I thought I would share one with you, but that's all you are going to get!

If you have never been to a Stampinpalooza before you need to free yourself up for the first weekend in October. Caroline always puts on an amazing event with fabulous presenters, demonstrations, AWESOME make n' takes (I will show those to you later this week) and so much more including an ice cream sundae bar!! Weee Hooo! I learned a lot of awesome things this weekend, which I hope to share in the weeks to come. The card today was created with one of those fabulous techniques. Julie LeBlanc shared with us an amazing way to work with the new Presto Pattern paper from the current mini (which I am very happy to announce will be in the new catty too!). Julie is super talented and this technique is a testament to that!

Julie showed us how to get multicoloured effects on our Presto paper using sponges, ink and markers! Isn't the result stunning??? This card was inspired by the PPA challenge this week.

I am going to play with this technique some more to produce some really beautiful cards. Stay tuned!
