Friday Fun

We started the classes off at 1:30 with my October Afternoon Sasparilla class.

This is Pat who several retreats ago decided that we should always have a relatively straight forward class to start the weekend off, not too much measuring and nothing too complicated so when the timetable is organised that is what always come first!


Once the first class is done the straight forward and simple rule goes out the window and next up it was Janes absolutely stunning book. Inspired by the smash book craze she used Graphic 45 Kraft Reflections and a selection of recycled materials to create her own book to house everyday thoughts and information!

It was also Janes birthday and her VERY thoughtful husband had contacted me in advance to check how many delegates we had - he then arranged for this tray of beautiful cupcakes to be delivered.... Delicious!

Some of the ladies were settled ready to begin Janes class with all the essentials - Class kit, party bag from Jane, cupcake and champagne!


By now the hotel know to make sure the champagne is on ice as invariably a few ladies indulge over the weekend! There must be a lot of thoughtful husbands around as another lady was greeted in her room with some Champagne ordered for her by her husband


The next class was my second of the weekend, two single layouts with the Prima Almanac range.


During the afternoon Karen Moss ran a little mini book make & take....


After the class it was dinner time, Lasagne, Quiches, Jacket Potatoes & Salad followed by Apple Pie and Fruit Salad.

Rather against our better judgement the post dinner & wine class involved using heat guns to create voile flowers, beautiful if a little smelly during the heating process. Debbie was teaching the class and used Crate paper 'Random' collection.

The rest of the evening was spent scrapping, shopping, chatting and laughing before eventually I went off to bed at around 12:45. There were around 10 people still scrapping and I am told that the first person to get up to start for the day was up at 3:30am and arrived before the last person went to bed!
