sweetest wishes...

Hi fellow bloggers...
I am here with a new card I've recently made...
The Tilda I coloured while I was at the copic colour conference in Sydney, I had so much fun!!
I really love the pink colour combo's used on this pretty and girly.

The banners are made from a Magnolia doo hickey die...and the sentiment (sweetest wishes) is out of a some odd girl stamp set.

I really love this Tilda...she is so cute!!

These are Wild orchid craft flowers...great flowers awesome quality.
Patterned paper is from Magnolia. I used some liquid pearls to do the pearl circle around Tilda, great stuff!!

Mad for Markers Copic colour conference...

Hi everyone, I just wanted to let you all know I had a FANTASTIC time at Sammi's Mad for Markers Copic colour conference in Syndey.

We stayed at the Sydney Holiday inn, right near the airport...The service and staff at the hotel were all lovely and happy to help!! The food was so yummy, we were very spoilt with full buffet breakfast, morning tea,  buffet style lunch , afternoon tea and dinner...lets say we were all loving not having to cook!! 

The girls I met there were just AMAZING, they were all so lovely and I cant wait till we all see each other again. It was so nice to meet a few of my DT teamies, Alicia..Rachel..Gin and Emma and of course the boss Sammi ( I have met Sammi a couple of times at paperific) It was so great to spend the weekend with them all colouring and learning new techniques.

Also got to see the lovely Annette again and she brought along her daughter...little miss Spica Rosanna!!
She loves her spicas, they came along with us on all our journeys...had them with her the whole time.

Here is a few piccies from the weekend...

Rachel doing some awesome grey and sepia demostrations...

We had a competition going to win the large doctor marci...

Our copic olour conference room set up...Sammi also had her store there for us all to buy copic supplies, The copic markers were starting to get low by the end of the weekend!!

Aunty sharyn, Gin, Annette and her daughter Rosanna...

Sammi doing some colouring...

Alicia and Phillipa working on their creations...

The weekend went so quickly, felt like we had just got there and it was time to leave again.
I am deffinately going to be attending again when Sammi has another conference on, it was just awesome and well worth it!!
