Happy 8th Birthday Pinnacles.....

Hi Blogland... Well, that was a weekend and a half!! We have just celebrated our 8th Birthday here at Pinnacles..
We always try and do something a little bit special for our Birthday and this year we had the wonderful Lynne Gilbert from Creative Expressions demonstrating for us... Now, we have had demonstrations before, I myself have even been known to don my demonstrators hat.. But, I have never before seen a demonstrator hold their audience in the palm of their hand like Lynne did on Saturday... She was demonstration techniques using Cosmic Shimmer Mists, Mica Powders, Stamping and Embossing... Perhaps products that we have all got but never realised their potential and how to get the most out of them?! Well, Lynne certainly pulled out all the stops with what she decided to demonstrate.. I myself learnt sooo much from her as did many of those who turned up to celebrate our Birthday with us.. If I heard "My head is buzzing with ideas" once, I heard it dozens of times.. And the empty shelves of the products Lynne was using is testament to her enthusiasm and creative skills..
Here are some pictures of the day...Sorry ladies, standing room only!!It's a messy job, but someones got to do it!!Someones lost their marbles..(You'll know what I mean if you saw this part of the demo)...Spritzing a Mask,Roll with Kitchen Towel,Eh viola!!This has got to be one of the funnest techniques ever!.. Shaving Foam..Adding some of the Cosmic Shimmer Mists,and a few more colours,mixing the colours with a tool from Maccie D's (McDonald's),In goes the card stock,and out it comes again,a quick clean,
and look what you get...
Thank you so much for coming Lynne and sorry that you didn't get a break all day!! I hope that you were able to get your "Inky Fingers" clean enough to hold your new Grandson for the first time on Sunday!!!
Thanks also to everyone who took the time to come and see us on Saturday. Thank you also for all the kind Birthday Wishes, Cards, Ballons, Cakes, & Prezzies. We look forward to seeing you all again at our next demonstration day on the 09th of October with..... Lindsay Mason.. Yep! She's on her way to Pinnacles...
Thanks for checking us out.. Back later in the week with some crafting..
See you soon.


  1. Hi Andy
    Thank you so much for making me so welcome. I had a wonderful day and its great to hear such positive feedback. I really hope we inspired some of the crafters to hunt out those products which they had hidden away and forgotten about. My hands were almost clean when I held my beautiful little grandson, thanks to your helpful tip. Yes Head and Shoulders really does work!
    Look forward to seeing you again soon

  2. Glad the day went well. Unfortunately, I didn't see the demos as I had Kristy with me and it was rather a full house up there but I hope to catch the next demo day.
