Fun weekend with Abs.

Good afternoon everyone and thanks for popping in. 
Welcome to our new blog follower, 
do come in, grab a chair, coffee and mince pie. 

I hope you all had a lovely weekend, 
I told you that I was going to a two day workshop, 
well it was in Carnforth, 
and it was Abs from AALL and Create
What a fantastic and inspirational teacher he is. 
Oh and so funny too, 

I did try and behave, 
but unfortunately my naughty elf side seemed to appear...
I blame his French accent....!!!!
Well when he asked us to 
Show him ours and he would show us his,,,,!!!!
It did make me chuckle,,,
Those of you who know me, 
will know exactly where my mind went. 

This is my journal cover that I made on Saturday 
Messy, painty play ,
it was fabulous .

Sunday , we created backgrounds on tags 

These are my favourites , all stamped up and finished .

This was our naughty table,,,,
Abs, Rachel, me and Karen .

This is our group photo...

It was great to meet new crafty friends and I hope to see you all again soon, 
Thanks Sharon for organising it , I know how much hard work goes in to these things 

Now this is my absolute , favourite piece from the weekend. 
I love everything about it , and will 
certainly be using these techniques again. 

I can’t wait to play with my new stamps, 

Thanks Rachel for being my partner in crime, ( although , I have to say 
You were very well behaved ) 

I am off now to order some water colour pencils, ( Inktense by Derwent)
Naughty Abs, making me Need them .
Looking forwards to seeing you on Hochanda on Thursday, 
Remember to wave at us all. 

Take care 
Much love and hugs 
Jo. xxx
