What a wonderful day

Morning everyone and thanks for stopping by. I had a wonderfully busy day yesterday Thanks to the lovely Alison Hall and Laura and Graham from That's Crafty. Yes I attended Alison's fabulous workshop. This was her debut but I'm sure she will be doing more in the future because she is a natural. So if you see one advertised sign up quick because you will not be dissapointed.

And... I finally met one of my playmates in crime lol, the fabulously talented Donna Gray of  Inky and Quirky. We are already on one Design Team together and soon to be on two, Shhhhh hint hint. It was lovely to meet her and she is every bit as nice in person as she is in blog land.  We had a lovely chat, before it was time for MeV to go back and play.

I was really pleased that we didn't have to follow Alison prescriptively as I do like to add my own little touches, and when I saw the lovely selection of die cuts we had been provided by Laura & Graham, I was in my element. You see I really wanted to enter the challenge at Anything but Cute as it is owned by a lovely lady whom many of you will know, Pamellia  from My Little Crafty Things  the challenge blog is Anything but Cute The Theme is Vintage Garden so I had this in mind when creating my first Page. 

We made two A5ish sized journal pages using Gellatos as the main medium. I have a set but don't use them nearly enough so this was a real treat to get to play with them again.


First page




Here are the other lovely ladies who played along.

Second Page


And the finished page


We then had group shots so I didn't take any more photos.

I really enjoyed myself and it was lovely to get to know Alison a little better. 
See you all soon.
