Stampin Up European Convention - Day 3

It was still dark in Brussels as we made our way to the Convention Centre. It was a bit of a struggle getting up early as we'd been up so late the night before, but I enjoyed how quiet and peaceful Brussels is at that time.

We had another busy day with workshops and demonstrations including some cute holiday projects and make and takes


 There were more Prize Patrols and we were all lucky enough to receive a Project Life by Stampin Up Card Collection



 The last session of the day was taken by Shelli, who shared some gift wrapping ideas with us.


After the closing ceremony we all headed off across Brussels for dinner at a restaurant that had been recommended to us, although we did have to stop and consult the map once or twice!





After dinner we set out to do what women do best- shop!
Everywhere there were amazing window displays and tempting treats


In this shop there were numerous varieties of chocolate available- all sold by the slab


This sweet shop had lollipops in every colour of the rainbow, I just had to buy some to take home for my girls


These meringues were bigger than my hand, there were crowds of people outside the shop taking pictures


The Grand Place is the main square in Brusssels and was full of people, even quite late in the evening. It looked absolutely stunning lit up.



And of course no visit to Brussels would be complete without a visit to the famous Manneken Pis,
a bronze statue of a boy peeing into a fountain.


I'll be back tomorrow with details of our last day in Brussels
