A fabulous Retreat at Daisy's Jewels and Crafts

Some of our lovely ladies with their finished projects 
Hellllooooooo there, I'm a bit bleary eyed this morning after three and a half fabulous days of crafting.  If you follow me you ;ll know I was the guest designer at the Daisy's Jewels and Crafts first weekend retreat.  Our project over the two days was my new Armoire and Album.  Boy did we all have a ball, painting, cutting sticking and of course admiring all the finished projects.  Wendy and Jeff ran around for us all wee end supplying endless drinks, the most amazing cakes and buffet.  Thank you both, and a big thank you to all the ladies who joined us.  We wouldn't have had a weekend without you.  Here's a few pics of the projects as they came to life.
Jeff caught me getting covered in paint lol! I really was..........

We had a picture frame make and take on Saturday eve.  I love Kaths couice of green and creams for her owl themed project below. 
The Armoire and project sheet is now available to buy over on our website.  
It's quite versatile and can be assembled with or without pediment, tag hanger and door to make a great Album cabinet. I'm a paper girl myself but it would look great altered in any medium.  Watch this space for more project ideas :-) 

 I'm off to catch up with all that's been happening while I've been away, and put the finishing touches to our project for this weekends retreat with Anne-Marie from Krazy Crafts at her first retreat this weekend at the Abbey Hotel Golf And Spa Club in Redditch for her first retreat.  Another fabulous event I'm touched to have been invited to teach at. I'll share what were making with you a little later in the week.  Enjoy your day, thanks for calling by and look forward to catching up with you again soon :-)
