Friday night ran through until midnight and Nic and Lucy had plenty planned for everyone. Besides shopping and scrapping the girls had designed some make and take mini workshops plus some fun games.
One of the games Nic organised was a memory game based on a British tv show that I hadn't heard of but all the NZ girls seemed familiar with! Basically, a name was drawn out and then we had 15 or so "helpers" who were each given a product or item to display.
We had blow up toys, scrapping products, cake mix packets and all sorts of wildy wonderful objects!!! The chosen participant had a small amount of time to walk along and memorise everything on display.
Then everyone turned back around to hide the products and our contestant had 45 seconds to remember as many things as possible. As she guessed each item, that person turned around again. Whatever she remembered she won!
I tell you what, ALL of the contestants had excellent memories and remembered a good deal of what they saw. Me? Well I would have felt the pressure of those 45 seconds and walked away with that blow up pink thing and a cake mix!!!
The make and take tables were very popular throughout the weekend. Each make and take was sponsored by a scrapbooking manufacturer and the girls all had the opportunity to come along and learn a few new techniques and make some cute things! We had small groups of girls per "session" and they all crowded around to "make" and then "take" their finished item back to their tables.
We also had a few Stampin' Up demonstrators there (I LOVE their stamps and bits!!) and Delys taught how to make this gorgeous little stamped bag!
Such a cute project modelled here by Pat!!
Nic and Lucy also taught a Tattered Angels make and take and the girls got busy with the glimmer mist!
and created these cute butterfly tags..beautifully modelled by the lovely Kate and Tanya!
Saturday was our BIG day of workshops!
