Plus it didn't help on Monday when I dropped my camera, running in from the craft room when he was raining cats and dogs. The card came out of the camera and while the camera still seems to work, the card wouldn't load my photos of the Season of Joy class. Hence the instructions only ready for loading.
For the Season of Joy Class, I decided to make lots of ideas for Gift giving based on the christmas table.

My two boys only have sweets on a saturday, as they have never had particularly good teeth, so to get sweets for 12 days in a row was indeed a real treat. The last box on christmas morning, had two memory sticks in them! They couldn't work out what they were for, as they said XBOX on them and they didn't have an XBox............
At the back of the tree was a big box for both of them.....................With an XBox inside. (No! it wasn't a big triangle box made by me! I should have thought of that one..)
So last weekend when we were discussing where the tree was going, my two teenagers asked Are we having the 12 days of christmas boxes on the tree this year!!!! Ha Ha
This one using a whole sheet of A4 cardstock, Real red. The toppers are the same in the card candy from the Spotlight on christmas stamp class this week.

Where do I start? Get a cuppa as this is a long POST!!!!!!!
Well, I had the most amazing time ever at my very FIRST and definately NOT last Stampin UP! Convention. Our Convention was held in a beautiful place called BAD HOMBURG near Frankfurt, What a lovely country Germany is. The people we met were all wonderful and so very helpful. We stayed in the convention hotel Maritim and I had the pleasure to room share with My lovely friend Jo......Who is in her Taken with Teal top in the above photo. I also went with my gorgeous downline Maria and her family Gordon and Matthew. Who kept us in stitches the whole 3 days......... My cheek bones are swollen from all the giggling and laughing that went on!
We flew from Southampton to Frankfurt on this.............It looks like a model right! It had propellers instead of engines and look at the little truck pulling it! We had a good flight though.
This is Chris who looks after us all when we put in your Stampin Up Orders. After talking with him for nearly two years, we all got to put a face to a voice........Finally.
The other special person at Demonstrator Support is Eileen - She is the most loveliest person and always so very helpful. Thanks Chris and Eileen you really made our trip worth coming - See you Next Year!!!!
