All Inclusive Crafters Retreat at Mytton Folds

Twas the Night Before Christmas Album Cover by Clare chervil Graphic 45
Heelllooooooo and good afternoon to you.  Where did this morning go lol!!! 

I've been really quiet here for a while I know but with the last of my 2014 retreats fast approaching I've been making planning and making the last of our four projects, ordering kit items and packing everything up as we go.  Only eight more sleeps to go and we'll all be together again.  I'm so loping forward to it.  We have the beginnings of my latest full sized 'Twas the Night Before Christmas' Album. More pages to design and cut out, instructions to write and filming to be done before 20th ..........  who's panicking lol!!!!I there's an on line workshop to go with it too.  This collection has a really fresh feel to it, and the pages are popping as I'm making them.  Love it.  

Yesterday I had a day away from the scissors, jumped in the car and headed up to the Ribble Valley in Lancashire to meet with Barbara, owner of Mytton Folds Hotel and June from Great Western Hotels. We scoped out the first of our Northern residential Crafters Retreats for next year and I'm really excited to be able to share the package with you today.
