|YuDu and I-Rock blinged out T-Shirts!!|
|Did I mention food??? Wanda is feeding us gourmet yummies, like this Macadamia Chicken! And Doug's MmmMmmMmm good Smokersaurus Barbecued Pulled Pork... Oh, my goodness!!|
|Bees Betty, June and Kristi are enjoying some major giggles!|
|These candy filled bags with stamped and colored toppers were waiting to greet all of the HoneyBees! The images were from Close to My Heart, and the 1x8 fold top envelopes are from Clear Bags.|
|We shared all sorts of talents with one another... here Rosemary is giving someone a brand new hairstyle! Can you guess who it is? Did you know Roe is a hairdresser?|
|We had all kinds of fun games, tutorials, and projects going on... Here are our commemorative Root Beer Float mugs!|
|Each HoneyBee learned about working with vinyl and worked with the Make The Cut program. Then we etched the design and our names into the mugs... before filling with ice cream and root beer! Remember what I said about eating!!!|
|Here is a little clearer picture of the design. It says "HoneyBee Retreat" curved across the top, and "Orlando, Florida, Feb. 2011" curved underneath. Then each girl put her name wherever she wanted it. They turned out really well!|
|Wanda made these precious little Bee Babies, which were little pillow pals waiting on our beds the first night :)|
|And our very dear friend, Judy Ford, sent these trash hoppers (or really terrific candy hoppers!!) that she made especially for the HoneyBees!!! What a hunny of a thing to do, and we love her a lot. We also send our prayers to her grandson, who is in the hospital right now. Get well, Jackson!|
Here is her presentation on our super cute T-shirts!
I used EAD Designs vinyl on my Yudu to pull this off! I tried another vinyl, but it didn't work out as well. I thought all vinyl was created equal, but I have been proven wrong. I LOVE EAD!
The bees are from the Sentimentals Cartridge™ and the font is from Birthday Bash™.
The Honey Bees will be decorating their t-shirts with the i-rock and gems from Imaginisce™. I hope they like them!
Good morning! I am buzzzzing with delight at spending time with my fellow HoneyBees. We are having a grand time laughing and crafting together in sunny Florida. Crafting friends are the best...so much fun and we can bee free to create. So of course our theme this week is all about the bees :)
I actually enjoyed fussy cutting the hexagon patterned BasicGrey Urban Prairie papers. The little bee stamp and sentiment are by Stampendous. I stamped directly on my grosgrain ribbon. I forget to use that technique; it works pretty well, don't you think?
That's it for tonight... the hive is quiet right now, but I'm sure the buzzing will begin again soon, with another wonderful day of friendship, fun, and sharing. May you have a wonderful experience with each of these today, too. We'll be back on Friday with more pictures, and more projects!!
Your challenge this week is to create something with a BEE on it! The tutorial on Monday had a great idea on how to make some, and there are lots of stamps, digital images, die cuts, papers, ribbons, and tons of other BEE-dazzling ideas out there! Create one, and come back to post it here! One out of every five entrants will win a specially designed HoneyBee charm!
Watch for exciting news from the Hive on Friday!!! And don't forget about the Blog Candy for February... you have a few more days to leave comments and particpate in the challenges to be eligible! You could even be a double winner.... blog honey AND a HoneyBee charm, if you are the busy bee who wins! Good luck!
