Nice to 'see' you and thanks for dropping by!
I spent last weekend in Milton Keynes with a lovely group of ladies I've come to know through Twitter. Sam I met briefly irl at the last StampMagic show along with Emma and I also spent time with Emma at the Anna Diabrowska weekend in Swindon a few weeks ago. The rest of the ladies in our group I had never met face to face before but somehow it doesn't really seem that way when you've been tweeting regularly for a few months, lol! Lin was the one who had arranged a weekend of classes with the lovely Lin Brown (YoursArtfully) for our special little band and we were joined by Helen, Jax and Jacqui plus Janet (who is not a tweeter). The workshops were held at a lovely shop called The Bead Scene which led to lots of temptation to buy pretty buttons, charms & ribbons ....... needless to say I didn't take much tempting, lol!
Unfortunately, I had to keep my head down and crack on with my projects to have any chance of keeping up with the others so I didn't get chance to take any photos of the other ladies but if you drop by Sam's blog she has some lovely pics of us all. She's a speedy Gonzalez when it comes to crafting and got time to keep the camera clicking ;D!
Here are some pics of the beautiful project we did on the Saturday.
And some pics of the gorgeous Oriental style project from Sunday.
and this is a close up of the lady in the niche. I think she's so lovely!
I think just about all the products we used can be obtained from PaperArtsy, including all the stamps.
I've not given any how to instructions because that wouldn't be fair to Lin but if ever you get chance to go to one of her workshops, please do. She's a lovely lady and wonderfully patient teacher. We all had such a fab weekend and can't wait to do it again.
I'll be back again soon but till then ........
