A candle For A Change

I went to a workshop on Saturday, It was at Lili Of The valley and it was with the lovely and talented Dawny P, She has quite a soft spot for my son Bobby, who put a shirt on for her, he's only ever wore it once before, he's a T.Shirt kind of kid.  We decorated a candle which I'd never done before, but will definately be doing again, I can see plenty of Christmas candles coming on, thank you Dawny.  She's so patient and really helpful, I love her workshops.
I met my Penny Black & More @ Allsorts teamie Susan,  Aww she's lovely, I really enjoyed having someone there I knew, to chat with.   I spoilt myself too with some new stamps and a couple of Nitwit paper pads. One of the pads is a present for a special friend though.  Bobby won a stamp too, with little Polar bears, it's called Igloo Bears, he said as long as I stamp it when ever he wants I can have it, I think thats fair LOL!

So now on to my make, I made this candle,  And I have to say it's so pretty in real life,  Dawny must put a lot of work in to get these kits ready, she did a brilliant job.  The image which is obviously LOTV called "Wedding Couple", and we did a gift box for it too.

Here is a side view
