A wonderful weekend of Crafting

I've had such a wonderful weekend of crafting.......meeting so many ladies 'in the flesh' whose blogs I love.....staying up too late......eating too much cake.....chatting and laughing.....realising I have far less stash than some crafters [who shall remain nameless!!].....learning new techniques......visiting Hobbycraft......watching in awe some amazingly talented ladies......and actually managing a little crafting.....in between all the chatting.
Remember this kit I made to take on the weekend.
Well....most of it actually got used up
The first page made was a photo I love....of the DDs at our anniversary meal last year.......a bit of journaling still to add.....about the fact that the evening was a great success......unlike the food....the restaurant had changed hands recently.....and the new owners seemed to need a new chef if they wanted to stay in business!!!! We didn't let that spoil our fun though.
I think the page should fit in with this month's MME challenge.
There's more pages to follow....but first a big 'thank you' to Lizzie for organising the weekend.....and to Alexa for so kindly collecting me from the coach station.
I can't wait for the next one.

Great to meet you Jacky - and you certainly know how to a) travel light and b) make great use of a gorgeous kit. I shall be keeping my eye out for their next one for sure! Super-duper page with a fun photo.
Thanks for your company!

Sounds like you had such a lovely weekend. I am so sad to have missed it. Next time! Lovely LO too!

Sian said...

It sounds wonderful! I've been waiting to see pictures and hear what everyone got up to..and feeling very far away from the action I have to admit..

Karen said...

A great layout, and what fun you must have had! I would love to get together to craft with a group of bloggers, but here it's a bit unlikely. We're way too far apart.

I do so regret that I wasn't even able to drop in for a cuppa as hoped! So glad you had a great time & I love what you did with your kit...can't wait to see more!! Maybe next time I can get time off arranged well in advance & come along to join in properly?! :D

Angelfish said...

So glad you had a wonderful time. What a good idea to take a kit you'd made up. As you saw I was clueless!

I feel very privileged to have seen this in the making! Just wonderful to get to spend time with you and lovely to meet you for real - looking forward already to the next one!

Sandra said...

I'm so pleased you had a fun time and good idea to have made up a kit, loving what you've don here. I really like your little title or journalling, i suppose, about the food ... It's a good way to say what is happening :)
