Weekend Workshops

Safari Adventure Flip Front Box and Album Set Clare Charvill Graphic 45
Here we are again another week nearly over and the weekend to look forward to.  Hope you've had a great week.  Harry has 'officially' finished college and really doesn't need to go back in other than to collect my pots of 'Flowersoft' that he borrowed to add some flowers to a flower pot he included in his final project. I've got a funny feeling I won't be seeing those again!!!!!! What are they like these boys lol! 
Sad day today as we say farewell to my friends Mum who passed away a few days ago. I hope the rain stays away and sun shines through the service. 
Tomorrow I'm heading off to Daisy's Jewels and Crafts to run crafty G45 workshop for Wendy.  We're making up my flip front box and album kits and altering them in a whole range of papers.  The sample above, altered in the Safari Adventure papers is an idea for tomorrow but also the project for next Saturday's class at Sirstampalot. I went for the zebra print on the box this time but the tiger (my favourite image in the collection) does have a page to himself inside the album:-)

  4. Thanks for the sneak peek at the newest Graphic 45 papers. Can't wait for the Christmas one, wish they didn't all come out at once, but will try to save up for them. Have a lovely time this weekend, I know everyone will love working on their new projects. Sorry for the loss of your friends mother, always hard to deal with. Good that she has friends like you.
