Weekend Retreaters …………….


 We've had a ball this weekend at the Holiday Inn, Leamington with 28 lovely ladies, one project and oodles of gorgeous Graphic 45 papers to cut into.  With a number of ladies returning to our second retreat I'd raised the bar on our project this time :-). A very interactive album in true Charlie Jones style packed with lots of new techniques to learn and then take away to use on other projects.  And we had only two and a half days to do it in ……………. 

and here's the video of the full project 


Its oh so quiet
Its o so still you're all alone 
an then…………………...


the weekend began ……………...









Sylvia had a surprise weekend booked late on Thursday night by her lovely husband.  She had no idea she was joining us until she got to the hotel on Friday and had the best time speed scrapping her way though her project.

Thank you ladies for a great weekend, and a huge thank you too to Andy for all his support and hard work too.  I couldn't have done it without you x 

Our next retreat is June 21st & 22nd. We're' making two projects using the pretty Botanical Tea papers by Graphic 45, and Candy Box crafts products too.  if you fancy coming along, click here to book your place.  

enjoy your Monday, and thanks for calling by.  Catch up again soon :-) C

  4. I wish I could live in your neck of the woods so I could go to these retreats. But living in Canada, it is a bit too far. I'll still order your classes via Etsy. Can I order this project from your Etsy shop? I loved the first one I ordered a few weeks ago and now will have to order a second one. But it would be wonderful to go to a real retreat and share my passion with others.
