Thank you ladies for a great weekend

Graphic 45 Crafters Retreat UK - Clare Charvill Ambassador UK
Afternoon my crafty lovelies, what a fabulous weekend we had at the Holiday Inn, Kenilworth.  Ladies thank you so much for joining me. Your projects looked fabulous.  Enjoy using them :-) Prepping for any event takes such a huge amount of time which seems to run away with itself and I couldn't have run the event without the help from my dear friends Jane Cameron, Karen Richards,  Cathy Knight and Sarah Sunshine.  Thank you so much ladies.
Cathy Knight and Sarah Sunshine on die cutting in the corner :-) 
 I didn't get to share all the project choices so here they are along with some fun pics and a montage from the weekend.
