Brissy Show Wrap Up...

Fresh back from the Brisbane Scrapbook and Papercraft Expo and what a blast!

I had a fantastic time and (aside from the learning experience of a rather chaotic class on Saturday), I thoroughly enjoyed my first 'in person' teaching experience.  Thank you to the many wonderful and kind ladies who took my class and made me feel at ease.  Your comments and feedback following the classes were amazing and I am truly humbled and thankful to have been involved in what I'm certain will be a regular event for me.... whatever the capacity.

A big thankyou also to Nicole and Craft Queen for the fabulous opportunity and for all your help and support.  You are a true professional and I don't know what I would have done without your guidance and assistance.

To Kim and Tina.... you are wonderful!!  Your help on all three days was just astounding and I could not have gotten through each class without your tireless efforts.  Big hugs... again!  :)

I can now show you the layout that the class was based on, in full .  Quite a detailed layout, it was a little bit of a challenge to get this completed in the designated time.  I had toyed with the idea of making a much simpler page, but decided that that just wasn't me.  I would much rather give people something that was authentically me and have them leave my class with a little homework, rather than feel duped or short changed.

In need of a couple of catch up days and hopeful that I have avoided the nasty flu bugs that almost every second person at the show seemed to be hosting.... I'm now off to clean floors!  What an anti-climax!!  lol

Quite sad that I just could't manage another bag on my shoulder and hence no camera, no photos!  : (  I'm hopeful that I will receive some from the lovely Annette and Kim soon...  ; )

Thanks so much for visiting,

Jules

Hi Julie

I attended your class on Saturday and I am amazed to read here on your blog that this was your first face-2-face teaching experience. I thought that you were totally professional, organised, unflappable and managed the large class group so well - I have just given my LSS owner a run down on what a great tutor you are!! Honestly, I would have thought you'd been doing it for years! It was a very ambitious layout to give to a large group, with the number of different stages involved. So a big congratulations to you - you must be a natural!!!

Your page was amazing, it was awesome to see it IRL and to have you share your ideas and techniques. I have finally finished putting the finishing touches on my page (after having to add another flower because I stuffed it up LOL). Thankyou!!
