What a Day!!!!

Well…….I’m beat! I have just got home and I am hoping for a HUGE sleep in in the morning. But I had the most fantastic day today! Today was Brisbane Regionals and you will never believe it but a week ago I was asked to participate by jumping on stage and do a Workshop WOW!!! Of course I said yes…..how often are you asked to do something like this? During the weekend I was starting to realise, though, that I would be in front of over 200 of my peers……AND what was I going to WOW these people with???? LOL!

Well to cut a long story short I decided to go with paper flowers and I have some fabulous photos to show you. They are from today and also of my WOW samples

First up I did some catching up with friends….I missed getting a photo of my upline Madonna. She ended up behind my camera today taking lots of photos…..Thank you Mads!!

This is Donna Griffith! This lovely lady showed some very cool techniques and also gave us all our own “I {heart} STAMPS” badge just like the one she is wearing. It was super cute and she told us that her and her husband made them all especially for us. How sweet is that?

My name in the bright lights…..well sort of!

My look of concentration! LOL

My samples on screen!

The cameraman, Barry, was simply awesome! He did the most fantastic closeups!

Look at all those people looking at me!! I was nearly hyperventilating!! LOL!

Not sure about that look! LOL!

Having a little laugh with Amanda up the back.

Then Aaron’s turn! LOL!

All the presenters for the day! From left Sophie Zadeh (from SU), Ursula James, myself, Sharon Turnbul, Rebecca Ross and Liz Collette. I hope I have spelt all their names correctly! I think we all had a great time.

Now for my samples

This was the Rose bud flower project. This is the one Stampin’ Up! decided to keep so I took a quick photo there before I handed it over!

I then showcased my scallop circle layer, carnation like, flower. I think this project is my favourite. I then showed two more samples using this flower.

So what do you think?? I know I had an absolute blast…..even if I was extremely nervous!! LOL!

Well I am off to bed! I have had a BIG week and I am super tired…..

Thanks for dropping by!

  1. Kirsty they look devine. So beautiful. I missed regionals this year. Now this makes me really sad, I missed your presentation. Thanks for the photos though. Keep that brilliant work coming.


  2. Hi Kirsty, I know how you felt, that was me a couple of weeks ago too. I was so nervous I thought I was going to vomit, but once up there I was fine. I love your projects, they are devine and I think I will have to case them for a friend of mine’s birthday. Take care and thanks for sharing your special day with us, lots of inky hugs from Charmaine xx


  3. HI Kirsty!
    Just wanted to say what a HOOT it was watching you up on stage last weekend. I can only imagine that your workshops and classes are an absolute scream!!!! I’ve jsut spent the day scrunching and almost destroying puched paper to recreate your flowers..I’m hooked!

    Thanks for sharing such a great skill! It definately was a WOW moment on the day!
    Happy stampin!


  4. Ahh, my friend Mel and I must have been on the same wavelength. Finally getting a chance to get on here and say I thoroughly enjoyed watching your magic hands at work at regionals. It was the first time we’ve been and we really enjoyed the day. Thanks for inspiring us. Helen


  5. Loved the WOW’s Kirsty. Such beautiful work. I love catching up with the gang and sharing. You cracked us up a few times while you were on stage. You go girl!!!! Guess Margies “RESCUE REMEDY” did the trick.LOL!


  6. Wow, I love what you showed!! It was fun to see the pictures of you on stage… They turned out quite good, actually! My friend took pictures of me when I went on stage at Regionals and I somehow was always talking when she did, so I was making the weirdest faces… haha!

    I hope you had a great time at Regionals!

    Cindy 🙂
