Tina's craft day Bulmer Suffolk.

This is the first time I've been able to go to one of Tina's craft days at Bulmer due to working on Friday nights. Well what can I say, Tina did a fantastic job on organising and putting on this event. I had such an enjoyable day and can't wait for the next one on Saturday 29th June (she still has a couple of places left) and for £12 for the day which includes a fab goodie bag, free prize draw, bingo and card competition..............I must confess I won all 3 prizes. No fixing as it was judge by two ladies who came into the event late afternoon, so didn't know who'd made which cards. I'll post my designs. See above.

I also managed to do one layout and more cards, so my day was very productive. The layout was made completely out of scraps and odds n ends I had in my stash. The cards are Craftwork Card blanks that we got in our goodie bag, they are quite big approx 7" high. there's more cards but they're not quite finished.
The drive home was horrendous as we'd had lots of snow and it was still snowing. Took me over an hour driving at 20mph, but I got home safe.

Did another layout during the past week, I started it at the Papermaze crop. It's Emily when she was approx 14 months old. I was so pleased with how this one turned out, again using up scraps from my stash.

Well coffee time. Hope you have a great week, stay safe.

I've been busy since I last posted. All my nephews wedding invites are finished and they've sent them all out, thankfully they were pleased with the design I came up with. I've managed to put together the Bramford crop kits for May and June, I'll give you a sneaky peek of the one I've designed for the May crop which is National Scrapbooking Day.....Saturday 4th 9am-8pm.

The layout I'm now posting of Cyprus is of my son Aaron when he went to Cyprus last year. It's one of those layouts that come together really quickly, no messing and I'm very pleased with the result. I also managed to put a pile of layouts into albums on Friday, still need to buy more albums. I like the American Craft D-Ring ones.
Went to Papermaze crop yesterday and had a lovely day. My crop mate for the day was Ang, we scrapped, nattered, ate, shopped and nattered some more......lovely.
Some other layouts I've done of late, the next one being from Lou's workshops held at Papermaze.
The next layout is of my daughter Emily, showing off the tattoo she had done in January. It's a design by Vanessa from the February Papermaze crop.
Lastly a sneaky peek of the Bramford May crop kit to tempt you. The papers are the new ones from Kaisercraft called 75 Cent and they are gorgeous.

Well lots to do no time to do everything. Work tonight 8pm - 8am tomorrow morning!
