Workshop at Southern Quarter Scrappers

Saturday 23rd and I was at Northampton for a workshop with 25 lovely ladies who belong to Southern Quarter Scrappers.
 The page to be done today is Heritage 10 Series 1.
Everyone had so much fun with heavy distressing, ripping, inking, fussy cutting, embossing and die cutting.
At the end of the day there were 25 beautiful pages created.
 
Thank you Liz for inviting me...I had a blast

Wow my album is back. How fab is this.........
 
We have had a blast with the group "Europe A" for the 2013 Progressive Swap. A huge thank you to Elly, Sandie, Joanne, Maxine and Jill. I just adore my album.....
 
Thank you to Laura for organising the swap, a great idea.
 
Things got a bit hectic and behind schedule at the end but now I have just today finished Elly's page,
 so I will be off to the post office first thing in the morning.
 
Some great crafty friends made too......
I just adore my album..... (did I say that already?)
 
When doing a swap with an album we were all worried about whether all would be ok and to the liking of whoever own the album
 
I just adore my album..... (I said that already I think)
I know you will love it too
