What can I say, CHA was awesome!!! a lot of HARD work but so much fun. We had the pre CHA (Crazy Hat Day) workshops at the Prima warehouse in Chino, a few of us taught workshops and I helped to run the make and takes on Day 1. Here are a few photos!
Thanks to the gorgeous ladies who joined in!
Here is Shanette, thanks for all your help Shanette, you are awesome!
and me in Shanette's hat!
Next up was my class, it was so much fun and I think the ladies had a blast, a special thanks to all the ladies from Australia and NZ who came along to support me!
A special thank you to Rebecca for all your hard work, it was appreciated!
The next highlight for me was having to do a Press presentation for Prima Pre CHA on our Prima Press which made it into the top 20 Innovative Products!
Then it was CHA opening day!!! The new booth was truly amazing and the projects were simply stunning. I was running the make and take section and the girls had a lot of fun as did the customers!
I got to see my gorgeous friend Nat again!
I got to meet the lovely Anna from Poland!
After CHA I headed off to Baltimore to The Queen's Ink to do some workshops with Dyan Reaveley who is Ranger's newest Signature Designer with her product range 'Dylusions' and I am lucky enough to be on her design team!
First things first - a spot of shopping with Dyan and Patti (owner of The Queen's Ink)
then to onto the serious stuff of teaching!
Here are a couple of my pages from the amazing newspaper journal we created!
and my offical Dylusions Team member icon!
A huge thank you to Dyan, the workshops were fantastic and I loved all your 'Dyisms'! Also, a huge thank you to Patti for your generous and amazing hospitality, you went above and beyond and I am very very grateful :)
After Baltimore I returned to LA to spend some time with one of my besties (Hola Elkie!) before heading home, arriving back in Sydney on Monday morning. Then on Thursday it was off to the Brisbane show with Jane Clark, Louise Nelson and Giovanna Scott who were all teaching amazing workshops!
The turnout for the workshops was great and we all had a wonderful weekend. While I was sitting at the front counter in between classes I couldn't help myself and had to do something creative.
I had some cute photos in my bag that I had taken with my new polaroid camera and came up with this layout! I got to play with some new products from the Kutalicious girls, the acrylic birds and word 'friends', very cute stuff, thank you! (they gave me some more stuff to play with so watch this space!)
On Saturday I taught a Prima workshop at Scrap Sanity, a store here in Sydney owned by the gorgeous Tiff Sawyer, it was a blast, thank to the ladies who came along! I also did a design team project for Tiff using MME Kraft papers! (yes something a little different for me!) and a Twiddleybitz shadow box!
I have also been playing with my Dylusions and Prima together!!!
This is a new Prima Journal :)
I am also working hard on my project for my Prima workshops in South Africa in May, which I am very excited about! Special Thanks to Ranger, Words or Whatever Chipboard and Faber Castell for also sponsoring these classes, I am truly grateful!
On March 17th I will be attending 'The Art of Life' mega crop day, which is being run by Giorgina Neilson at Davistown, NSW. I will be doing make and takes all day using PanPastels and Prima products. You can find the info HERE on facebook, I hope to see you there!
On March 22nd I will be filming Scrap-It-TV for 'All about Scrapbooks' here in Sydney, I am doing three projects and here is a sneak peek of one of them!
