A freshen up and an excellent weekend

I have tweaked my blog a bit - hope you like it - not much different, but I think it is a little easier to read.

I have spent the weekend here
attending this
run by
Anna Bowkis

I attended 6 classes over two days and scrapped from 9am Saturday to 4.30pm Sunday with only a short break for sleep and food!
I had a wonderful class with MJM (Michelle Jackson-Mogford) where I created a very distressed layout! All layouts will be photographed at the weekend and appear over the next few weeks.

I made some good friends, including Emma, Solance of SparkleDreams, Tina, Sandie, Emma and oh, so many others whose names now escape me!

I did both of Anna's classes, where we made a layout and a mini book. The mini book needs embellishing and photos putting into it, so that is an ongoing project!

Another ongoing project is the flag book I made with Sandie Vincent. This was such a fun class and I really enjoyed it. I shall definitely be making more of these - once I have finished the class one off!
 And lastly I did two classes with Tracie Hudson - a love themed layout (used photos from my sister's wedding and am really pleased with this one) and a beautiful book using Prima products - lots of work to do on that one to finish it off!
There was plenty of stash shopping available courtesy of 3 Jolly Scrappers, Kim and Jo. These two brave ladies are doing a tandem parachute jump for Help for Heroes in September - I wish them loads of luck :)

We finished the day with a raffle in aid of MS and also to raise money for a hospice which one of our Scrapping Angels attended during her last days on earth in May. She is a true Angel now - RIP Catherine.
Sadly, this was the last Scrapping Angels Retreat - I have had such fun the past two years and will miss this event, but hopefully keep in touch with the lovely friends I have made. Thank you so much Anna (and your helper Sue Deacon) for all the hard work you put in to make this such a successful and wonderful event.
Anna and Sue
