A bit of a giggle!

I'm sharing a really fun project with you today!  The Creative Stitches and Hobbycraft Show is happening at the Exeter Westpoint Arena this weekend.  I am off there today with a couple of my crafting buddies for a fun day out.  Even more excitingly, I am meeting up with on-line crafting pals who don't live close enough to me for us to have regular get togethers.

To ensure that we will recognise each other in the busy crafting crush that is always at the show, we decided to make badges to wear so that we will be able to spot each other more easily. 

To create my badge I used my Wizard Kaleidescope Pendant Shapabilities die set, cutting the base layer and the layer under the letter from glossy pink card.  As my name is quite long, I decided to only put my initial on the front.  I found the round silver and white inverted scallop layers in my box of bits and added these to the front.  I cut a second base layer in white card then inserted a length of pink ribbon between the two base layers before sticking them together, creating a hanging loop.  I took a white finish chipboard letter W from my stash and coloured it with pink Spica glitter pen.  I then glued this to the front of the badge, covered it with Glossy Accents and dusted Glamour Dust while the GA was still wet.

I think that my pals may well recognise me when I am wearing this!!  Although I don't have a long shopping list, I will no doubt stagger home with a few bags of goodies that have taken my eye at the show!  I hope today's project has brought a smile to your lips!


Quick update for you, as you can see the badges worked!!  All the 'Bubblers' at the show  found each other and we got this chance for a photoshoot!  A great time was had by all and far too much money was spent - a really successful day then!!!
