A busy few days......

Happy Monday, I know I've been a bit quiet on here lately but it's been a busy old week behind the scenes.  Two fabulous workshops last weekend. Back to Peterborough mid week to do the promo filming for Graphic 45 at Create and Craft TV ahead of the US launch of their channel towards the end of the year, and then two great workshops this weekend.   I could do with a few 48 hour days to catch up on all that needs to get done before the end of the month lol!!!!

Saturdays workshop was with Nina at her fabulous shop Crafting Times in Shepreth.  Huge thanks Nina for your hospitality and ladies, thanks for coming along.  It was a great day and lways lovely to see you all.  Here s everyone getting crafty Christmas style with the very festive 'Twas the Night Before Christmas' papers by Graphic 45.  

Sunday I headed off to see Wendy, Jeff and all the ladies at Daisys, Jewels and Crafts in Bedworth for another altered art workshop.  Our project for the day was a Writing Desk altered with Couture Papers, one of my G45 DT projects from earlier this year.  It was lovely to see some of the ladies free styling and following their own style with the pretty Botanical Tea papers too. 
I managed to catch Hillary sitting down.  She usually liked to be caught running through the photos lol!!! 
Who are those cuties peeping around the corner :-)
