Part 2...

Saturday saw us getting up at the crack of dawn to teach the workshop to 100 retailers. Once again I was honoured to be amongst great teachers, Claudine and the master himself Tim.

Tim taught his portion first.

Here's the crew on stand by.

The lovely Wendy was one of the Fifi's for the day.

Queen Patti with her concentrating head on.

The fabulous one and only Dina Wakely came along to be my main bi-atch for the day, lol.

Here's Tim giving me a quick pep talk and a few pointers before I begin.

Piles and piles of shimmy butt roll just waiting to go.

inks for the kits

And here we go as he introduces me to the students.

Are we all paying attention.?

Oh obviously that's a no then !!! lmao

Yayy I survived and so did the students, well most of them.!!

Here was my project, the start of an altered book.

Then it was the turn of the lovely Claudine to teach her portion.

Can you see we are doing our best turtle poses.?

And then it was straight back over to the stand to finish set up. The packaging for my stencils had arrived. It's great to see all your hard work as a finished item.

The whole display

The display boards ( with a massive thank you to Kate, Kazz and Dina for their design team work )

 Looking pretty fabulous don't you think..??

I also had a fabby display on the Stamper's Anonymous booth.

Which included samples from Sandy Poppins, Ellen and Candy. Thanks girls.

The next installment will be the actual show itself. See you there. Enjoy xx
