Back from Retreat

Did you miss me?
well i had a fantastic time at the scrapajack retreat with jak and deb and the rest of the gang (too many to mention) the sun shone all the time, we arrived on wednesday at 3pm, checked into the Swansnest Hotel in Stratford upon Avon and then went off into town for a wonder before others started to arrive, there was about 8 people stopping over on the wednesday, stephen and cara stayed over on wednesday too they went home thursday afternoon, we had a gorgeous room, the hotel has just been refurbished and is even better than last year, and their service is just brilliant, nothing is too much trouble, i could'nt fault them! the food was fantastic and too much, we did nothing but eat lol

i did 4 classes while i was there, i have a kit from another class to do, i was too tired by saturday to attend the class so will do that soon

firstly there was the Eyes wide open class from Maria, goegeous kit and class, loved it.

then there was the monster mini book from Claire, i absolutely love this little mini book, and was working on it well into the small hours of friday morning to get it finished, it has envelopes for pages and in each envelope is a pull out so lots of space for piccies.

then we had the sunshine class from Anna, not quite finished this one, need to add my title, which i can't decide on yet.

then there is another class from Maria, its the friends class, another gorgeous kit, i did'nt do this one in the class but on my own when i had lost my mojo for a short time, this got me going again.

there is another mini book to do which i will get to soon.

i also managed a page in my Jake album, i am doing a page for each 21st of the month for his first year, 21st being the date he was born, trying to keep it all upto date....lets see if i can manage it!

so thats another retreat over, feel quite sad realy but on the count down for next May!!
