coffeepot July: Yupo

Hello there! How are you? I do hope you are well? I am good but struggling with time this week - there just seems to be so much on in Lucy's last week of primary school. She certainly had a good time last night.I'll show you some pictures soon.

On Monday morning we had our last coffeepot before the summer break and I decided I would introduce the ladies to yupo. They have used alcohol inks before but never on yupo and were all suitably impressed with how easy the inks go on. I made these two cards as samples...

As you can see I also used the alison bomber words ... I just love them!!!

This is the one I made as a demonstration. 

The ladies loved making them and managed to do almost three each. They seemed to favour the silhouettes. All flower stamps and dies are from Tim Holtz.

So to Lucy's special night ...

They had a bit of fun with some crazy wigs in the playground before heading off .....

They had lots of loud music by all accounts on the way to bowling and then tea at frankie and bennys.

It was certainly a good night!

Hope you have a good Wednesday - we have a drama group social tonight - I will be singing! Get those earplugs out if you're anywhere near!

Big hugs
