At our club session over the weekend we used another Sale-A-Bration set, Happy Moments. I have to admit that when I saw the images in the brochure I wasn't too impressed but as with black and white films, they don't do a lot. Add some color - like a technicolor film - and voila! - Happy Moments! The images in the set - a stack of gift boxes, a birthday cake and the bird in a cage are all about happy moments.
In Colors Crushed Curry paired with Soft Suede make for a dynamite combination.
The main card stock is Soft Suede on top of which is a Whisper White mat that was run through the Big Shot using the Perfect Polka Dots Impressions Folder found in the Occasions Mini.
The flower image is stamped on a piece of Whisper White 2" x 2 1/4" and colored with the Crushed Curry, Certainly Celery and Barely Banana Markers. It is layered onto a piece of Soft Suede 2 1/4" x 2 1/5".
They are layered onto a piece of Crushed Curry card stock that measured 2 3/4" x 2 3/4" and scalloped on one side with the Scallop Trim Border punch - a Sale-A-Bration item. This whole piece is layered onto the Whisper White Polka dot piece with dimensionals.
The sentiment is also from Happy Moments stamped in Soft Suede and cut with the Small Oval Punch. Its layered onto a Soft Suede Large Oval piece and then onto a Crushed Currey Scallop Oval and applied with dimensionals.
The card is finished off with two 5" pieces and one 2" piece of Soft Suede Polka Dot Grosgrain ribbon.

Our weekend with start with a welcome reception on Friday, the 14th followed by a day of paper crafting on Saturday, the 15th and we'll end our retreat with breakfast in the Aubergine Grille with prizes.
There will be three stamping sessions held on Saturday but they'll end in plenty of time to give you a chance to explore all the attractions in Whistler (site of the snowboarding, downhill, luge etc of the Winter Olympics) - whether you like to mountain bike, take the zip line, hike, golf - there's lots of activities for you to do. Or if you would like to pamper yourself, the Westin has a fabulous spa.
