Good Sunday afternoon

Well another week over!!!
Harrogate was amazing! I had the most wonderful time. We arrived well in time for the workshop with Barbara and It was a really good hour ...even though it whizzed by! I didn't have time to breathe let alone take pics!!!
Here is the picture we created in the workshop. Barbara did it first then we had to follow her lead!

It would make a beautiful christmas card I think!

I did spend quite a lot at the show but still came home with some cash in my purse which for me is quite unusual! But I got what I went for and that was the main thing.

Sheena Douglass was also at the show doing demos of paint fusion. I could only watch from afar as there was always so many people crowding round to see her fab technique.

Now a bit of sadness. Our friend Wendy has lost her mum this week. She was really ill and lost the fight on Wednesday/Thursday. Poor Wendy will feel a tremendous loss I know and she is definitely in our thoughts. I got out my old faithful Create a scene stamps to make this card for her.

I hope it brings her some comfort to know that we are thinking about her at this sad time.

Well the weekend has been Ok up to now...I was taken out for a meal last night to celebrate my birthday which is tomorrow. We went for a Chinese buffet which was fab and had lots to eat...then home in time to watch the X factor whilst drinking a rather large glass of Bailey's! Lovely!

Now its Sunday afternoon and planning time! Then I may just squeeze ina bit of crafting with some of the things I got in Harrogate!

Hope you are all having a good afternoon

Hello everyone

Well first full week over ...6 more to go.
It has been quite a good week really I think and everyone seems to be settling in OK.
I have got a form group for the first time in ages and it is a little strange especially as they are the new year 7s and I think they think I am their mum at times. I daresay they will grow out of that pretty soon.
I havent had time to do much craft but I did do one card for my daughter's friend. Here is a pic of it. I saw the design i a magazine and used the papers they had given you to do it. I added a different sentiment and inside I wrote Happy birthday in spanish as the girl it was for is a spanish teacher.

Tomorrow I am off to Harrogate to the Great Northern Papercrafts Extravaganza. I will be there doing a workshop with the great Barbara Gray and then be able to look round the show where Sheena Douglous will be hopefully demoing paint fusion so will be able to watch her for a while and pick up those vital tips!

I will take my camera so that I can let you see what sort of day I have had!

I am off now as I will have an early start tomorrow...Have to be in Harrogate for just after 8.30am!!!!...Setting off about 6.30 so that we will be there in good time!

See you all soon
