Good evening! I am checking in after Paperific! with couple of things to share! :D
Firstly - as promised at the show - here are the posters I made up for our stall that show ideas for colouring Skin and Hair with Copics...

The images I used for these posters were ones I had purchased from The Greeting Farm! I LOVE TGF stamps as they are GREAT for doing skin and hair - such fun to colour!

Paperific was AMAZING! Although VERY tiring too LOL! I was not sure how it would go but we had LOTS of wonderful people come through the stall.. THANKS to EVERYONE who came and said hello and came and bought stuff from our stall!

I am so thankful
to my sister - Nic for coming with me to help out every day!! She worked incredibly hard and I could not have done it without her!

and also my AMAZING DT girls from Melbourne...

was wonderful, firstly ... in letting me sell her stamps - Spesch stamps on the stall - They were a great addition - those stamps are wonderful to colour and in the photos I'm posting below they are the ones used for the enlarged images! She was also invaluable in helping set up, pack up and manage the stall on Manic Friday)! Awesome to meet her and thankful for the lifts she gave us too!!

Annette and her lovely daughter Rosanna
were amazing on Saturday - was such a pleasure to meet them and have them in the stall helping out, selling, colouring and answering people's Copic questions!!

It was so good to meet her IRL and she brilliant on Sunday with her colouring demos - showing many people how to colour in lovely hair and pretty PINK!!! :D

Marcia from The Stamp Spot was also wonderful sending me some of her stock - Discounted stamps to sell on the store! THANKS Marcia! It was good to be able to have some more stamps people could get to use their newly bought Copics on! Many people also appreciated the discount coupons she sent!!

I could go on... but I will show you some piccies of the stall and then sign off... there will be some more piccies on my personal blog during the week!
This is what the stall looked like when we arrived...
Tracey and I on the Thursday... prior to setting up...
then some pics of the stall set up!

It was also really great to meet Mandi - one of Copic's Australian Certified Regional Instructors - she was running Copic classes at the show which we kept hearing were wonderful! Thanks also to Mandi for dropping off some extra things we needed on the Sat!! :D

and then a shot of the stall all packed up... THANKS to all those who enabled us to send much less home than we brought!! :D

Our colouring Pink challenge continues this week.. looking forward to catching up on all the entries now I'm back home!

Hi Sammi, sounds like Paperific was terrific!! Glad it went well. Are you going to be at the Paper Arts show in Penrith in November? Would be lovely to see you there. I'm hoping to go on the Friday afternoon straight from work.
