I'm back from my travels

evening everyone, and happy Monday to you.  Jan, if you're reading this I've finally managed to sit down for long enough to open up the lap top, watermark some pics and blog.............................:-)
It's been a fun filled couple of weeks since my first show on Hochanda with Fiona.  What a great time we had, the hour flew by as always. Huge thanks to everyone who mailed in during the show and sent messages afterwards too. It was great to be back and with such a fabulously friendly team. 
After the show I headed down to Cornwall for a few days with my lovely Sis, and a workshop in Bodmin.  Ladies thanks you so much for joining me.  We had a great time building our Box It kits and altering them Crazy Bird style.  Here's a few pics of eveyone and their fabulous projects: 
I caught a ship slipping slowly behind the rooftops into Falmouth docks as the sun came up and we spent some time on the beach too.  Just lovely.........

My time with Annie by the sea went by all too quickly.... but my journey home takes me past Harry's new pad so I called by and took him out for dinner and some much needed vegetables lol!!! We had a good old catch up.  He's loving his course and living in Cheltenham and has loads of new friends too which is great.  Student life seems t be suiting him.
After prepping for this weekends demo day and workshop at SirStampalot it was back off to Peterborough for tho fabulous days with Janice, Andy and their lovely customers.  Huge thanks to everyone who came along to Saturdays Graphic 45 demo day and yesterdays Graphic 45 workshop.  Our project for the day was a new ring bound album altered in papers from the truly delicious Cafe Parisian collection.  Here's a few pics from our day:

What a week!

IndigoBlu Tags  Happy Friday everyone If your a follower of mine you 'll know that I've been off work for a while following an op, but my life as a lady of leisure came to an end this week when I returned to the world of totally british beautiful fast fast cars and ones that go anywhere!!  I had a wonderful welcome back from my colleagues so thanks to everyone for making my first day as good as it was.  I thought I'd feel like the new girl, not able to remember anything, but just like riding a bike it all came flooding back :-) Now I feel like I've not been away lol!!!    I cant deny I'm not pleased its the weekend and I've got time to re charge my batteries before attempting another 5 days on the trot :-)  As I've just joined the IndigoBlu team official this week I thought I'd share a couple of tags with you made with stamps from the  Pomp and Pageantry and Grand Tour 1 plates and the ledger background which I really love.  Tag 1 IndigoBlu

Launching the File Folder......

Hi everyone, it's Friday and launch day for our latest project - the File Folder.  I had loads of fun making the samples altered here in two gorgeous paper collections to give two totally different looks to the same File Folder Cover Set.  .   Measuring 10" x 7 1/4 x 2" the sturdy File Folder Cover set is laser cut from 3mm MDF, has a magnetic closure inset into the covers, opens top reveal the option to add a noticeboard section on the inside cover and a ring binder that holds four layered pages. These can be made with or without pockets and pull out photo mats.  I've added a tuck spot option for the pages too. These allow you to slot pictures onto the pages without sticking them down. That way you can always see the beautiful papers you've chosen to decorate your pages in, like  like the Mad Hatter below.  I added black clips into the samples too to hold more pics and ephemera on the pages.   and right in the centre there's an acetate waterfall se
