Busy weekend

Well yes that was a busy weekend, on Saturday I went to Crafts 4 U 2 Do in St Helens. We made a wall hanging using three of the MDF butterflies from none other than the MDF man....
We started by covering them with some fabulous Graphic 45 papers and cutting them out....some sanding and gilding...

Then we made some embellishments with die cuts, Clarity stamps and some Sweet Lilac flowers.

More gilding,

More cutting out, some lunch, (and yummy cakes ...thanks Lisa).

Then the best bit...time to play and decorate the butterflies....what to glue where....
Some ribbon and job done...Thanks for your company ladies ...and Chris, you still make the best coffee....
Then there was Sunday...a few of us went along to help Maria Simms move into her new Craft Unit....the Maria Craft Hub....although, I'm not sure if that is the official name....oh my ....just how much craft stash can one person have!!!!! It does look fab though....A great place for workshops.....
We did work hard although this is the only photo that I have!!!!!

I'm off much to catch up on this week....
Enjoy your evening....
