Roomie Gifts

Hello Everyone

I thought today I would show you the AMAZING roomie gifts that Hayley made for me. Hayley and I shared a beautiful room at the Sequoia Lodge at Disneyland Paris for the recent Stampin' Up! European Convention.

I brought back lots of goodies which you can see I laid out on my sideboard to show my team when they came over for a training evening. You can see some of the make and takes we did, my fabulous convention bag and some of the stamps I got to bring home.

So here are my roomie gifts...Hayley used the beautiful Mocha Morning Speciality Designer Series Paper. She SO knows my taste - this is my favourite DSP in the catalogue. She also included lots of Antique Brads, Victoria Crochet Trim and ribbon embellishments - aren't I a lucky girl?

So let me take you through - from left to right you can see my decorated water bottle, (very useful as the French heat their rooms to a very high temperature - it was boiling in there!). In front of the bottle is a mini scrap book - she made one for everyone in the team and it is beautiful - then the three matching packages held Cadbury's chocolate stars. Once again - a spot on gift for me! I LOVE Cadbury's chocolate and I found another star on the bedside table each night!

The gift box behind got a little battered in my hand luggage on the way home, but it did it's job and protected my main gift and a simply stunning creation. Let me show you my ornament in close up...

Now when you are sharing with such a talented friend, it is very challenging to come up with a nice roomie gift for her - but I did my best. This is a look at what I made for lovely can see we have very similar tastes - more Antique Brads and Victoria ribbon! I chose the Beau Chateau paper.

I also want to tell you that Hayley was a fantastic roomie - not only that but she did an AMAZING job presenting at convention. As well as being very interesting and giving us some fabby tips about workshops, she made us laugh and I know I would love to go to one of her events. Her customers are lucky to have such a great demo.

Thank you Hayley!

I hope you liked seeing our little makes - back soon with more projects.

Love Elizabeth X
