Morning everyone, what a great weekend we've just had crafting away Graphic 45 style. We all gathered at the Holiday Inn, Kenilworth, the home of my retreats, for two and a half days of crafty fun and frolics. Scissors were flying, and papers were crafted into some fabulous projects by everyone. Ladies thank you for joining me for our 6th My Creative Spirit Retreat. The event couldn't have happened without help from Isobel at Scotch Lodge Farm, Wendy from Daisy's Jewels and Crafts, Sandra, Darren and John from Jones Crafts and Jane and Karen on Friday and over the weekend. Thank you all so much. Our lovely friend Lyn couldn't be with us this time but, Lyn if you get to read this when you're out of hospital we were thinking about you and missed your company.
There were lots of Bureaus being altered in Artisan Style papers, Hillary chose the Precious Memories Album as her project, and with the arrival on Saturday morning of the new Rare Oddities and Gilded Lily collections four lovely ladies crafted freestyle altered their Bureaus in the curiously gorgeous Rare Oddities papers.

Today's little task is to unpack the car, update the website, ship out the weekend orders and then head back to the hotel to pick up the last of the boxes I just couldn't squeeze into the car yesterday. Mustn't forget to get dressed first though lol!!
