Our Graphic 45 Event in Wales

 Looking at the weather this morning I was really lucky to have two days full of sunshine by the sea in Wales.  It's pouring this morning here in the middle of the UK.  Our venue at the British Legion, Milford Haven had the best views looking out over the sea.  The Irish Ferry came and went as we crafted away.  Huge thanks to Cheryl for organising the event, my accommodation at Fields Lodge, and our evening meal at the Crows Nest. Thanks also to everyone who helped out and to all the lovely ladies who came along. It was lovely to see you all again and to meet some new ladies too.  I hope you're as addicted to Graphic 45 as I am lol!!!  Thank you too to Helen, Margaret, Amy and Rosemary for my lovely gifts. You spoiled me.  I've come home with some gorgeous goodies and three Welsh dragons to add to my collection.
 Welsh Slate/Dragon from Rosemary. Snow globe from Amy and Welsh Dragon soap from Fields Lodge B & B 
Cheryl chose Communique, the recently released Deluxe Collectors Edition for everyone to craft with and I got busy designed a new album in a box project for us all to make.  This collection is one of my all time favourites, I love the theme that runs through the papers and the colours too, and thoroughly enjoyed putting the project together for everyone.  If you 'd like to make it follow the links below: 
  Here's some pics from our two days:

Trip to Ireland anyone .................
