Cumbria workshop

Good afternoon all, 
Thanks for joining me .
I hope you had a lovely , relaxing weekend...
Mine was lovely, quite busy,,,with lots of friends, 
Giggles and cake 
It was our cumbria Spring retreat...

Unfortunately a couple of our ladies had to cancel at the last minute , due to 
health issues. 
We did miss you and hope you feel better soon. 

We stated on Saturday with a nice quick and easy warm up card. 
And after coffee we moved onto our main project..
We made a journal , using the Eileen Hull , journal die. 
We created this in stages , 
And finally finished it on Sunday afternoon. 

This was my favourite card design of the weekend,,,
And I love all the ladies creations..

Mind you these are stunners too...
We had free facials using Tropic products for those who wanted them on Saturday evening 
Followed by a Chinese meal.
Some of us had a little glass of bubbles too. 

Sunday soon came round and look at these fabulous journals, 

And to finish off with we had time to make an ATC and have another swap...

We made little pockets inside our journals so that we have somewhere 
to keep our ATC’s.

Thanks to Sheila we had lots of yummy cakes...
We even had a Scotch corner...didn’t we ladies,,,,!!!!!
It is amazing how quickly the time takes months of preparation 
to organise a retreat and before I knew it 
It was time to drive home,,
I was shattered last night, 
But so happy and contented after spending such a wonderful weekend. 
We need to send a group hug to Elsa one of our ladies...
Group hug , lovely lady...
Thinking of you..

We have dates for our Autumn retreat , 
And it is open now to the ladies who have been on one before...
And then it will be open to other Crafters. 
I have my thinking cap on already..

Off now to walk the dogs...
We collected them from the kennels this morning 
and boy have they missed us..
Enjoy your evening all.
Much love and hugs 
Jo. xxxx
