Pink Saturday Art Opera Style

I missed all of you last Pink Saturday when I was away in Red Bank NJ for Art Opera. I could not wait for Beverly of How Sweet the Sound to send the email. As I sat in Art Opera events my Pink Brain was working over-time. Lisa Kettell Of Fairie Enchantment was the most Magical Sugary Hostess and all of her teachers were wonderful and talented. There is a "Pink" Teacher I wanted to give her own special blog post too and I am sure you will love that next week!

Anne Denise Anderson of Whim and Fancy Design is a fabulous artist crepe paper incredible super talented teacher and now friend. She made this Marie Antoinette Doll at Vendor Fare for the make n take (1 of them). I just was the assistant whom held hot glue in place and smiled as she created this masterpiece. Yes the bottom is a bell..she is amazing! I was wondering does this woman from Texas ever sleep or is her Texas Size brain always churning? If you have never taken a class with her you definitely must it is such a treat. She will Be teaching at Paper Cowgirl in Texas, go look at the fabulous creations and teachers that will be there. I took other classes with her will post definitely during the week.

I had Holly Stinnett from Holly Loves Art create this beautiful Apron for Lisa Kettell from Faire Enchantment who was our Art Opera Magical Hostess.

I had M&M's made with "Frozen Charlotte Heads" and "Art Opera". The cute Gumball Containers were purchased from Heather at Speckled Egg.

Mermaid holding cotton candy I made to decorate my treat bags.

Cupcake Soaps I put in the Goodie Bags for some teachers and friends. The bottom is a bath fizz and top is actual soap. Of course I had to find Pink Cupcake Boxes and filled with pink tulle to decorate.
