Brisbane Regional Demonstrator Training

The Paper Angels had a fabulous time at Brisbane Regionals, held on Saturday at the Hilton Brisbane. We made some terrific new projects, saw other Brisbane Demonstrators present their best workshop ideas and we also heard from Demonstrator Support in Sydney and the US. However, the best part of the day was just spending time together. Some of the Paper Angels somehow managed to make swaps, so they came home with lots of different samples for inspiration. We also did well in the prize patrol, with 5 of our group members taking home free stamp sets! Unfortunately I didn't get photos of everyone, but here is a sample for you to enjoy.

To explain a couple of these photos, Leonie asked Aaron if she could keep the card he demonstrated, which he did! Without my even knowing, our group of demonstrators organised a beautiful basket of flowers and card for me, which was incredibly lovely. I cant think of anything I'd rather do than spend time with all the amazing people in our group so it's hard to understand why I need thanking, however, I was extremely touched and am so very grateful for the lovely flowers and card, but more importantly for the fun, cohesiveness and love that we share. The wonderful Ursula made the floral arrangement and card and I will post some extra photos of these. If you ever need flowers, Ursula is the girl to see!

Here are the Paper Angels again having a great time a Ahmets Turkish Restaurant in Southbank. afterwards. What fun, although I would have to say it was a bit hot as being a Saturday night we were packed in like sardines! The food was lovely and we even were treated to a belly dance! Not everyone was able to come after training as they had to travel - we missed them and hopefully we can do another social activity in the new year.
