January Fun Day

12 solid hours of aircon, 1 crowded slightly noisy room, a good couple dozen Sister Consultants, 1 delicious lunch, 1 so-so afternoon tea (cheesecake was not the best choice), too much laughter, 1 prize won, and a total of 12 pages completed (4 PictureMyLife pages, 8 traditional pages)!

What: January Consultant Fun Day
Where: Pacific Golf
Why: to network with Sister Consultants and to get work done on my *own* projects
When: One Monday each month, 10am-10pm
How much: $20 event fee -included full handouts of the day's projects (plus $19.50 for lunch and $7.80 for afternoon tea, both from onsite restaurant)

Here's your inside look at a Consultant Only Fun Day, as seen through my experience.

The fabulous Denise Tarlinton sharing her equally fabulous project ideas and know how with us.

My set up for the day. I had stuff to do and I was gonna get.it.done. Woman on a mission! Check out these SUPER CUTE Year>>Noted stamps. Did you get your Year>>Noted kit yet?! Check it out here. Also, Sticky Boy decided to hitch a ride and keep an eye on me. Cheeky Sticky Boy!

Two of the layouts I was attempting to do after I finished some Picture My Life pages and some traditional pages. Layouts are free sketches from Scrapbook Generation's website in the free download section. The pink basket is from Daiso and it perfectly holds my Cuttlebug plates and my embossing folders, plus my pen cup, and even a few stampsets! I so need to get another one for other smaller bits and bobs.

I got these 4 Picture My Life pages done in record time yesterday. Woohoo!

Gettin' stuff done. Picture My Life pocket scrapping, lunch (highly recommend the chicken parmy), and more pocket scrapping!

We have WAAAAAAAAAAAAY too much fun at Fun Days. I don't know how we handle it. (I demand better working conditions!) We get tickets for attending, for show and tell (oh yes, we do show and tell!), for demonstrating a new technique or idea, and other shenanigans. I won a Heartstrings Complements sticker sheet! WOOHOO! I was just about to order one of these too!

Afternoon tea. The cheesecake looked good, but it just didn't taste that nice. It needed a bit of lemon in the mix or something. :/ The cuppa was excellent and even had a <3 on it.

One of my missions for the day was to complete 8 of my 21 pages that needed completing. This one finally got finished with quite a few stamps and embellishments AND journaling.

All the pages I completed yesterday. Woohoo!

Just a few of the details I used in my Picture My Life pages. I didn't have any suitable cards so I ended up blending smaller 3x4 cards with an embossed piece of 4x6 kraft cardstock. So simple and so effective.

More details of my finished page. See the slight two tone stamping on the circles? That's made by inking up my stamp with Glacier ink then lightly tapping my stamp on Slate ink before stamping on my Glacier cardstock. So easy and so delightful! I need to add some Bitty Sparkles (which have gone AWOL here in my studio, naughty sparkles!) to some of the circles before this page is really finished.

Hopscotch is so versatile. I've used it on wedding pages, on travel pages (exploring Brissie with overseas rellies), and on New Year's pages. I even used a Hopscotch 3x4 card as a journaling box! I love this limited edition range! It's only here til March 31 so get it while you can!

I call that a successful day at the office!
