Happy Birthday Harry

Graphic 45 Workshop, AFE Creations Clare Charvill Ambassador UKEvening everyone,  last week seemed to fly by in a whirl and before I knew it I was on my way up the M1 to host a Graphic 45 weekend of crafting with Julie and her lovely ladies at AFE Creations, Skelton, North Yorks.  We had a fan dabby dozzy time,  two days of non stop creativity, chin wagging and fabulously tasty food.  Ladies thank you so much for making the weekend such a huge success and Julie, huge thanks for your fabulous hospitality again.  Oh and a special mention to Lynne who came along and joined the gorup for the first time.  It was lovely to meet you :-) 
Here's a few pics taken over our two days; 

smiles all round at the end of day 1 ........

I'll be back up at AFE Creations for another Graphic 45 weekend of crafting in August 2017 - look forward to seeing you all again then ladies. 
Today I jumped in the car again and headed down to Cheltenham to spend some time with Harry on his 19th Birthday.  Where have those years gone - time has literally flown as he's grown from small to tall.  We had a fab time, some great food, squeezed in some retail therapy and then headed back to his digs for cake.  I love our times together.  Heather, Harrys' flat mate lent me some of her coffee too - thanks Heather :-)
