Create LIVE event

Last Saturday, Mary and I did our first Create with Connie and Mary LIVE Event!  A lot of work, but it turned out AWESOME if I must say so myself!  Many, many people who attended came up and want us to do another one!  lol!  You can see more photos of the LIVE Event over on Create with Connie and Mary!


Since we went with a beach/luau theme for our LIVE event, I made up a LOT of these Hibiscus Flowers for all kinds of decorations!  The Flower Frenzy Die made them easy to make!  I cut the flowers from Melon Mambo, Tangelo Twist, Rich Razzleberry and Daffodil Delight.  The centers were Daffodil Delight or Tangelo Twist.  The leaves were Garden Green and embossed with the Delicate Dots Folder.  These I sprinkled the flowers randomly around the Raffle, Food and Display tables.

I stamped WOOHOO! from Bravo Stamp Set in the center of some more flowers for Prize Patrol giveaways!  Everyone went home with a Prize!

I decorated my Prize Wheel with the Flower Patch Stamp Set in colors to match!


I made some for the Name Tags for the helpers, Mary and I.  I used the Apothecary Framelit for the base and layered the Sweet Taffy Designer Paper on top of chipboard to keep them sturdy and adhered a pin on the back.

After the event, I used the display flowers to make Thank You cards!


Hibiscus Flower Cards

I used scraps of Sweet Taffy Designer Paper and the Watercolor Thank You on the front of Whisper White.  I did add a Rhinestone Jewel to bling up the cards.


It really was lots of FUN coming up with ideas to decorate…one of my favorite parts!  Again, check out Create with Connie and Mary for more photos of the actual event!  It was a GREAT day!

Looks like a blast! Did you make the prize patrol wheel as well? Would love to know how you did that!

Wow! You really did a lot. I liked the prize wheel, too. But I really liked how you kept your main logo fairly simple a re-used it everywhere. And I like that you used the flowers on your thank-you notes. You are always an inspiration! I’ve definitely pinned this to CASE later, and it has given me even more incentive to get this bundle.
