Make It Show starts today!

Hello, Crafters.

Well, surprise, surprise! I was only 1.5 hours late leaving home yesterday! LOL!!

Although we arrived at the event venue just before 5pm, the others had done everything they could and had gone home.

They had done a brilliant job on the stand, it looked really impressive.

I only had a few cards to add to the display so I did that without upsetting any of the good work already done by the others.

I didn't put out any of my Berry Baskets I'd made because I want to keep them for the demo table rather than having them out on permanent display, although I may decide to put a couple out.

Before we left, I took several photographs, a couple of which I'm sharing here - see photographs 3 and 4.

When we arrived at the hotel we were very pleasantly surprised to find that they had upgraded our room!

As we walked in we were faced with a really super four-poster bed - see last photograph!

It pays to b a member of their loyalty club!

Our room is more like a small suite rather than just a room! What a result!

Hubby and I went downstairs for dinner last night, via the bar for a pre-dinner drink. We should do this more often.

Last but by no means least, as promised, I'm sharing my favourite berry basket with you before anyone else - my small thank you to you for following my blog. A big THANK YOU from me to you.

It's a double size one with the main body cut as just two pieces.

I used Sahara Sand cardstock and the Sahara Sand Lace Trim. It took a fair bit of work but well worth. I think it calls for a video, don't you?

Well, as usual, I'm running behind schedule, so I must dash.

Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
