Light The Way...


I have a good friend, Kathryn who invited me to a Stampin' Up! demonstrator only retreat. Because it wasnt during the school term, basketball wasnt happening and for whatever reason, the planets lined up,  I was actaully able to attend!!


It was so lovely to surprise another great mate, Susan when I got there, I kept it from her that I was able to be there!!

We had from Friday evening until Sunday afternoon together - time to catch up, eat, giggle, eat, do a tiny bit of exercise, eat, make cards, eat and learn new techniques from other SU! demos...

It was pure bliss!!

On the second night, Kathryn had organised these cute little lanterns to be in our rooms when we finished crafting. (That was only about 1 am Sunday morning!!) That little battery operated light worked for a while before I found it!!
 Using vellum, embossing powder, stamps and a couple of punches, Kathryn (and possibly her team) put these together as a lovely gift for us all...
How simple but stunning is this? Who would have thought it was simply a battery operated light in a disposable plastic glass, hey?
Thanks Kathryn, this has pride of place in my stamp room & I may just replicate it for little gifts, soon!!
