We're Off to the Races this weekend

Hi de Hi my loverlies, how are you this grey and chilly morning.  Autumn is slowly taking hold here, the nights seem to be closing in and Halloween is creeping up on us. On a positive the clocks go back on Saturday eve here and we get an extra hour to snooze on Sunday morning before leaping into action :-).  
I'm off to Scotch Lodge Farm this weekend to host a two day G45 workshop.  We have a new album to create altered in papers from the delightful Off to the Races collection by Graphic 45. I'm loving the colours in the collection, they seem to fit the season too with the rich oranges, warm browns, olive greens and subtle blues.  They also go with past collections which is great if you want to create bespoke projects or use up those left over papers on new projects. Or maybe we just like to stash those to look at and stroke lol!!!  
The album sits inside it's own case (our 'Box It' kit) has some fun interactive pages, large pull outs and oodles of room for your photos too.  The collection is as the title suggests all about the races but you can easily create a non race themed project by using the B sides of the papers and let the colours and quality designs work their magic.  Either way you can create stunning projects from this collection.  
Here's a few sneak peeks.  I'll share more and the project sheet next week after the class. 
I'm off out for lunch and some Mum time with Oli, a real treat as we seem to pass each other like ships in the night these days, so have to go get a wiggle on.  Have a fun day, thanks for calling by and look forward to catching up again shortly.
