Red Hat Fun

Took a step back from crafting today, to enjoy the day with a great friend. We went to a Red Hat Tea at the Washington Duke Inn in Durham, NC. My first event, and I had a great time. It was a ton of fun using my creative talents to get all dressed up. 

The hat I am wearing has a special meaning to Linda, my friend that invited me to the event. See it was her first red hat. (Afraid to ask how many she owns.) Just knowing she would bring it for me to wear, makes me feel special.

Linda is a really good friend, talented crafter and all around caring lady. We go to crops together, are roommate on crafting events, make cards together and sometimes we just sit and talk. Once in a while, we even let our husband's watch sports while we scrap. As you might guess we are best friends. When you have a friend like Linda, you know you are blessed.

Let's Get this Party Started

In the last 30 days, I have allowed my creative side to come to the surface. Joined Stampin Up as a demonstrator, opened an online etsy shop, and started teaching paper crafting. And of course I still love to eat, so I continue to work as a nurse. Enough about how happy and exciting my days can be.


Taught myself how to Bokeh, (almost sounds like a dance). The colors are fantastic, with 3 different techniques you can do just about anything.

Check out my FB page see some of the great cards, then go to Stampin Up to buy your own products to create your own. Stampin Up ink pads and refills added with the Aqua Painters make doing this technique easy.

Now if you are local, sign up for one of the upcoming events with Stampin Up and you can learn to Bokeh too.

See you in class.

Next Bokeh class is April 12th at 1 PM......

Thank you for stopping by........ see you again soon Elaine Pelletier-Brown
