I realised yesterday that I haven't really shared a lot from my trip to Brussels earlier this month. I think much of the reason is because I, sadly, lost a lot of my photos. Somehow, my memory card got corrupted...it's a good job convention is in Brussels again next year then! I will share a few of the photos I do have at the end of my post.
Luckily, I do have photos of the beautiful pillow gift I gave to my lovely convention roomie, Paula! What do you think of this?
Yes, I played with the fabulous Curvy Keepsakes die again...sorry but I just can't resist! I used the stunning I Love Lace stamp in Silver Encore ink, and added some lovely Silver Glimmer Paper leaves, punched from the Bird Builder punch.
I finished with a couple of little flowers from the Pictogram Punches, and a couple of Rhinestones Basic Jewels. Can you see the candle inside? Don't worry, it's not a naked flame! It is a battery powered candle! I created some handmade Washi Tape to go round it using masking tape. I simply stamped the I Love Lace stamp onto the masking tape...it looks really effective and just finishes the candle nicely.
Oooh almost forgot! Can you see a little something else in there??
There was a beautiful Swarovski Crystal bracelet inside!
Ok, so, as promised, here are a few of my favourite pictures from Brussels...
First, the very beautiful square at night...
This fella was carved from pure chocolate!
Some veeerrrrry expensive chocolates!
Le Mannequin Pis...(yes...it's a little boy weeing!) (and I do mean little!)
Some of Pierre Marcolini's stunning chocolates and Macaroons...
The very lovely Shelli being presented with all our birthday cards, especially made for her!
And finally, some of the lovely ladies who I enjoyed spending Sunday morning with...Tanya Paula, Shelley and Lisa...
We had the most wonderful time, (and a LOT of chocolate!) and I can't wait to do it all again next year!
Have a lovely Friday!
