Well Convention is done and dusted for 2015! I had such a wonderful time with my beautiful JAI girlfriends. We all shared a fabulous, large house on the canal and had so many laughs together. Think ... Narelle putting on some 'oh so fun' dance moves, Jodene the selfie queen showing us how to take perfect pics (kept forgetting the new selfie stick though), and Nikki and I struggling to keep our curly hair straight. It was a hoot. Those who didn't stay together (Tina, Rochelle, Susan, Paula, Di and Bronwyn) met up for dinner on a couple of the nights. It's always terrific to see blog friends in real life. See a few pics at the bottom of this post. There are more to come so stay tuned.
The Gold Coast showed us some pretty attrocious weather with gale force winds and torrential rain. Fortunately that was only two days of our stay, the remainder of the week was glorious sunshine and perfect temps.
Now that we're all back and (hopefully) refreshed we have a lovely Inspiration Pic from Trish for the new Just Add Ink challenge this week. I'll add the pic below. Meantime here's my card.
This was my first play with the Indescribable Gift stamp set, which is unfortunately retiring :o( not that I'll be getting rid of mine. I used a Sahara Sand base, a panel of Something Borrowed dsp and coloured the blooms with my blendies - lots of fun.
It would be lovely to have you all play along with our challenge this week. Pop over to JAI for some inspiration from the design team, and then link your own creation up - it can be a card, scrapbook layout, 3D project....whatever your heart desires. Here is the pic.

To all my mum friends in the South Pacific (and wherever else it is celebrated during May) I wish you a very special Mother's Day on Sunday. This is BFF's very first Mother's Day and I know she has lovely plans so an extra special wish for you, mwah!
