SU Trip Achievers Blog Hop - March 2023

Welcome to the Trip Achievers Blog Hop.  I am so honoured to be participating in this Blog Hop and I am so thankful for the support I received from my Customers and Team Members so that I could achieve this trip (less than 1% of demonstrators world wide earn this trip)!  Thank you so much!  We're off on a cruise to the Norwegian Fjords in May 2023!  

One of my team members asked me to demonstrate a drapery fold card recently.  I had fun checking out different drapery folds and found this one which is a little different. Thanks to Tina Wardell for the great instructions! What a great way to use up Designer Series Paper that we all have!

I loved the colour combination for Evening Evergreen and Petal Pink.
