A Right Busy Weekend......

Well I'm Back from the wilds of Canterbury and a fantstic time was had by all I hope!!!!! Well I did anyway.....and below are the fruits of my labour. The weekend consisted of 6 classes all of which I had had either no experience of or minimal prior to going. My first class was to Alter the below tins and I'm so please with them I've made two more since I got home, !!!!! Ive used Blonde Moments "Spring Fling" papers and assorted ribbons from my stash. Saturday Kicked of with a Accordian book Class the idea is to fill the book with various ways of using ribbon to embellish card and scrapbooks alike. I used BG Urban Couture Papers and Various ribbons and fibres. Saturday after Lunch we had a visit from Jennie from http://www.thestampconnection.co.uk/ She taught us the joys of alcohol inks and ATC's, well I'm hooked now!!! All the images below are avalible form Jennies Shop. Saturday Babs Taught me how to make a waterful card (the others being confirmed Scrapper's declined this one.) unfortunately since returning home the card hasn't survive the wonder of Aiden He though it was fantastic and has worn it out!!!!!:( Sunday morning Clair showed us how Fab the Bind it All Machine is......again Ive use dthe BM papers so now I have a wonderful Desk top set. And finally Sunday afternoon Babs showed me this wonderful Pop-up/Exploding box. Unfortunately CardmagicUK has departed and is no longer running CMUtd retreats but for information on retreats such as my weekend contact Babs (MagicLady) at http://www.faithscrappersuk.com/ Although I am not a practicing Christian I was made welcome and this weekend I made Two extremely wonderful Friends. I will defiatelybe joining them again.
