The fun FLYBaby Gathering in Kansas City is sadly now history. I had so much fun that I am still here. Actually friends Marnie and Mary are here with me. We will all leave tomorrow morning. Many images were shared and new techniques were learned. I actually made a card using one of the new techniques.
Kimilou was very kind to teach us how to do Dahlia folds. I seemed very tedious to fold the 8 petals needed, but with practice they became easier. (She actually showed us how to make a flower using only 4 of the dahlia petals, but I didn't like how my paper choice worked for it so did the full flower.) If you would like to try this you can see a tutorial for it on Split Coast Stampers.
You can't really tell by this picture but the patterned paper the flower is built on has been scored in 1/2 inch increments diagonally in each direction. This gave the paper a really neat quilty look to it. Thank you Marnie for doing this for me.
A very big THANK YOU to Kerianne for putting the weekend together. You did a great job! I hope you get a good night sleep tonight.
It's now time for bed and I do need my sleep as tomorrow will be a long day since my flight doesn't get in to Baltimore till 11:20pm and then I have an hours drive home. So good night.
