WA Demo Retreat Day

Western Australia Demonstrator Retreat Day March 18th 2018

How did it all come about????
Well Kelly and I wanted to do a demo catchup somewhere inbetween where she lives "Bunbury" and where I live "Waikiki" 
We had been throwing the idea around a lot and Kelly said "right pick a date" so the 18th of March was decided on. Where we originally wanted to have it was Preston Beach and it was going to cost a fortune to hire a room and they wanted us to get catering too.....

Kelly and I

"Lets go inland then" Kelly said so Waroona it was and a brilliant little spot at the Senior Citizens Centre was decided on.... Next was who should come along??? We put it out there to our demo friends and it filled ever so fast!

We kept the cost down and included morning and afternoon tea and suggested to the girls to bring their lunch.
Any leftover money from the day was put into prize patrol and every person went home with something.

Everyone was to make up 12 kits for the day and they would each go home with 12 different cards.

This is my card

The card needed to be able to be put together in a 20 minute time allocation.

We all had a wonderful day and hopefully we will all do it again soon....

  • Stamps: Delightful Daisy 
  • Ink:  Early Espresso, Lemon Lime Twist, Melon Mambo and Blushing Bride
  • Card: Whisper White, Early Espresso and Melon Mambo
  • Tools: Leaves Punch
  • Embellishments: Dimensionals
