A crafty weekend at the Birds in the Barn Summerfest

I travelled further east than I've ever been on Friday night, to be up bright and early on Saturday morn and join Janet and here team at the Marks Tey Hotel for two days of crafting at the Birds in the Barn Summerfest 2014.  I was invited to run two classes over Saturday and Sunday and boy did we have some fun. 

Saturday took us By the Sea in true Graphic 45 style making my little book in a box
and in our Sunday class we got the paint out, altered our Candy Box Crafts handbags and made a mini album to go inside them
It was lovely to meet everyone who came along, catch up with friends, make new ones and of course have a great time crafting the weekend away.  Huge thanks to everyone for coming along to my classes and to the lovely Janet and wonderful team of ladies for all your help over the two days, and for putting on such a fabulous event :-)  p.s. Loved the egg sandwiches Lyn, thank you:-) 

After my weekend away it's back to the drawing board today, I'm working on two new on line workshops this week with the Come Away with Me and Eerie Tale collections.  Enjoy whatever you get up to yourself and look forward to catching up again later in the week.
