Rustic Rooster and news from Noosa (Day 1)!

DSC03734_sml.jpg
I made up these tags a while ago and realised that I’d forgotten to share them on my blog! They are made with the Rustic Rooster stampset (a hostess set that you can earn for free at your workshop).
I have used some of the new Very Vanilla Jumbo Brads from the Spring Mini catalogue to secure the Ridinghood Red ribbon in the corner of each tag before fraying the ribbon with my Paper Piercing tool to give it the look of feathers.
This set is part of Shelli Gardner’s signature collection and reflects her love of the vintage,  shabby-chic style.
I am finally getting my photos from Incentive Trip organised and I will have more to share with you over the next few days. In the mean time here is Day 1 of our fabulous holiday……enjoy!

These were my Incentive Trip swaps which I am very pleased to say I wasn’t finishing the night before like last time! I’ve used the Sip By Sip stampset and added some Chocolate Fine Supernova glitter for a bit of extra dazzle 😉

We wanted to include the kids in the excitement too, so we decided to hire a limo to drop them to school and then to take us on up to the airport to catch our flight…….

Lol…..you’d think they travelled like this every day!!DSC03851_sml.jpg
Of course, the Champagne came out after the school drop of to get us in the holiday mood and we road in style up to the airport!DSC03855_sml.jpg
Upon our arrival at the Sheraton we received a cocktail in a real coconut, which was very refreshing, then we had a chance to head up to our rooms for a quick rest before our welcome dinner……..

The pool had a swim up bar and you could even order food while you were swimming!
And look what was on the table in our room (Janiel and Angie our event coordinators from from Stampin’ Up! had really thought of eveything!):

You can see what was etched on the water glasses a better more clearly here:

After a little time in the Jacuzzi and a lounge by the pool we headed down to the ballroom for a lovely dinner together (the desserts were a particular hilight!) and then headed to the bar for some cocktails to end a  perfect day.
When we returned to our rooms we found another gift ……..

We were told to wear this at our group activity the next day along with the matching hat…..

With this was a gorgeous card with a hand written message from Shelli which I will treasure forever:

We went to bed that night very well fed, beautifully relaxed and looking forward very much to the next day’s activities………..more about Day 2 tomorrow!!
