The October Metreat

As you can see from my previous post we had our October Scrapbooking Metreat from 3rd - 5th October and we had a brilliant time :) I thought I would just add some pictures of the work done by the guests at this event :)

This altered box was done by Penny Kafai whose blog you can find here http://pennys-patch.blogspot.com/ Moira provided lots of different sized/shaped boxes for anyone to do what they wanted - creatively - with and this one was voted the best by the other guests at the Metreat :) Well done Penny :)
Penny also taught a couple of classes at the Metreat for us - the following are photos of her class :)

We also had Cheryl Johnson who is a renowned photographer/scrapbooker there and she took the group photo in the post below. She also took several photos of other guests who had requested photoshoots which were fab and will be uploaded soon ;)

6 Months have gone by....

I just can not believe that 6 months have gone by without me posting on here - I have been so busy with one thing and another - work, scrapbooking, family, friends etc but I have enjoyed the last six months - other than work of course - that has been so busy - there are a lot more careless drivers out there than you think.... Anyway I thought I would post that I have just returned from the second Magical Metreat at the Mollington Banastre Hotel and Spa which is in Chester :) we had the most fantastic time playing with our scrapbooking stash and meeting new friends and also old friends :) for now I will post one photo as I don't have time at the minute as off to another crop :) and tomorrow it's Isabelle's christening :) at 11am - way too early for me but we will be there :)

There is a slide show of the metreat put together by Cheryl Johnson and the link to her blog is
