Convention 'Roomie' Gifts

There was 4 of us who stayed together at Crown Casino for the Melbourne SU Convention (boy it was a lot of fun). I wanted to have a little something for my roomies so I created these little boxes full of gooodies. I case'd these from Monica Gale (a talented UK SU Demonstrator) you can check out her creations here.

Here is a close up of the Elegant Soiree one, the others were made from the Sweet & Sour Speciality DSP.

The flower on the side is from a die that a friend of mine had (so I used the opportunity to cut some flowers - I hope we get this in Australia soon).

I included some handmade goodies in the box - a little journal, a little box and a mini post it note holder.

The other goodies included - a giant freddo, lip balm, fizzy fruits, pen and ear plugs (just in case anyone snored).

Attending the SU Convention is not just fun for sharing with team members, but also for getting to meet some of the other lovely SU Demonstrators that have fantastic blogs that I love to follow. This year these included the lovely and talented Christine Blain, Petronela Hardy, and Paula Dobson. I have admired these ladies from afar for quite a while, I just wish I could spend more time following their blogs.
