Shades of Blue - LIM #22

I'm late getting my Less is More submission in for this week's challenge - I have been away since friday morning on a faberooney crafting weekend with two pals and two more joined in the fun on sunday - Yay !!

Thanks so much Kathy for being 'the Hostess with the Mostest' (and her lovely hubby Steve - I just don't know how he coped with three crazy crafters for the whole weekend !)  and to Lauren for allowing me to 'make you' acquire things you never knew you needed !!!   It was so great that both Cherry and Debs could join us on sunday too.  I just had a ball the whole weekend and although I'm totally worn out today, it was Soooo.... worth it !

We managed to fit in a little craft stash acquisition foray on friday afternoon and a couple of sets of stamps by NitWit just happened to jump into my bag - oops! - and the fish pedicure was an amazing experience!  To finish off a brilliant day we met up with another pal for a yummy meal in the evening - great to meet you at last Rosie. 

On saturday we got down to the serious business of actually crafting and this is when I created my LIM entry.  I had taken minimum (!!) stash with me as I had to haul everything on and off trains, but did have some appropriate bits and bobs with me thankfully.

The image is Star Girl from Queen Kat Design Stamps and the sentiment is from Dark Room Door.  I felt the two just worked well together.  The patterned bp in shades of blue is from a set of doublesided papers from Costco. 

After stamping on white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, I coloured Star Girl with  Copics and added some Spica Glitter Pen to the stars to give them a little twinkle.

That's it from me today, I've got two of my local crafting pals coming round this afternoon for a session and my lovely Dad - who is also a crafter - is still staying with me, so should be a nice creative afternoon.  I've still to unpack my craft tote from the weekend and find homes for the few items I couldn't resist buying at the ArtStamps show at Newbury Racecourse yesterday, so I'd better get a wiggle on ! 

Hope you are having a great day and thanks for dropping by.
