Altered Boxes and new workshop dates for the diary

Morning everyone, and a very Happy Friday to you.  It's been another busy old week and this eve I"m heading off to Norfolk for a couple of days. I haven t been that far east for quite a while so am really looking forward to it.  It's demo day tomorrow at Jo Channon's shop, Lets Create in Tattersall and then a workshop on Sunday.  If you're able to come and join me for a fix of G45 and a coffee I'd love to see you. 

Solange and I are sharing our altered boxes over on the Graphic 45 blog today.  Paper Mache Boxes are just perfect to alter and of course the sky's the limit once you start cutting away.  I used the Time to Celebrate papers for mine, made flowers from the patterns and solids and added co ordinated mint green tissue paper inside to wrap a gift in. 
For more pics and info click here to hop over to the world of G45.
I've got a few classes scheduled for the next couple of weeks.  If you fancy joining me at one of the craft shops click here for more info and shop contact details or if you'd like to come along to one of my own workshops click here for more info and booking
