Weekend Away..

So the 10 month circle journal came to an end, and instead of posting the books back to their owners we decided to meet up.

We all headed for Harrogate, and exchanged our books. here is me getting my book back..

All the books are complete except for a single page in the back, I intend to put a photo of us all on there. When the whole thing is done i shall make a flip thru video and show you.

We had a wonderful meal out on the Saturday night, and then a pj party in one of the rooms. Much wine and cake was consumed. I shall refrain from showing you the pj photos lol

On Sunday morning we had breakfast and then walked along to Art from the Heart where we spent the day doing a workshop with the fabby Dyan.

We made these huuuuge canvasses, I really want to add a quote to mine, so when that is done I will show you.

Here is me and the gorgeous Dyan, could be sisters...

this is Marie, she was my roomy for the weekend, and it was a pleasure to share with her.

As gifts for the girls I made them all a bag, here they are showing them off..

I will make a post soon just about the bags, and also one about the page I made for Jayne.

Here is how my canvas looked by the end of the class, I have since added a little more blue ink and I am currently searching for an appropriate quote to go on it.
