Back to normality ...

but before I get completely bogged down in 'stuff' need to update you on the last day of the GoGo weekend.

So Saturday night Laura did a class called 'Date Night' where we put together a desk calender, which was done in three separate parts as shown, and you can change to picture and the left hand side when you mood take you - great idea.

Then on Sunday morning, it was my friend Sam turned to do her class 'What a Gem' sorry not taken photo of this yet, going to change the photo I took, but a great class, she didn't let herself down - love her and it.

Followed by lunch, more laughs and the the final class of the weekend with SJ, using Cosmo Cricket - Boyfriend - cutting, tearing, inking, distressing, mini books, mini envelopes, I really don't know how they think of all these things and all on one page - fabulous, as this was only an hour class I need to finish off a few bits then I will upload.

A final farewell from Lorraine and Janice, after taking these photos that will no doubt appear in some layouts over the next few months.

Meeting up with Sheena and Sam again - what a great pair of girls - they made my weekend and I just love spending time with them both - roll on March 2010.

Me and Sheena - I'm sure that I'm not alone when I say that sometimes you meet people that you instantly connect with and Sheena and Sam and two that I have, and I thank them for their friendship and all the laughs. Love you both.

This is "Symbol" formally known as Jane Dean or Anne (depending on how you spell her name - LOL) - with a great pop-up Haleoween Minibook.

Angie, Chloe, Rachael and Vicki - Chloe and Vicki I've chatting to over on the Clubhouse and UKS, and I'm in their CJ groups and they are both great. Angie and Rachael are both very talented Scrappers and I have, I think most of their layouts in my favourites over on UKS - so I did confess to being abit of a stalker of their work- which they found highly amusing - I really do hope that they can make one of the Getaways next years because it would be fantastic to meet up again.

me and Rachael - this will definiately appear on a layouts - title 'Stalker meets Star"- sounds good to me - LOL.

Di, me and Jacqui - what can I say about Jacqui - she was an absolute SCREAM and and mean SCREAM ... she had us in stitches the whole weekend - what a wonderful lady - I will be waiting for my phone call from Gok!!! Di thanks for the laughs and looking forward to the end of month - keep smiling girls.

I sat next to Ally (AllyCat) - and I do hope that someone took a photo of us together, thanks for the laughs - speak soon.

My Stash shopping from the Getaway.

And finally the journey home, well just has we got onto the motorway Sheena heard a noise so we pulled over and her car had a flat tyre, so after over an hour wait the AA man, we finally got home 2 hours after the schuduled time. But it all adds to the weekend right - but maybe the next time I'll drive. Hubby suggested that I go on a Car Maintenance course - what is he thinking of - spend money on something other than craft - he must be mad - LOL

Right thanks everyone for making this weekend so much fun, I so enjoyed meeting you all, sorry if I've not mentioned you on here, but I will do over the next few days.

I know over on UKS and ScrapaGoGo I mentioned a big, big thanks to Lorraine and Janice and and all the DT girls - the weekend was fun packed, inspirational, and very well organised. Looking forward to meeting you all again and L&J thinking about the format for the 'fan club' LOL.

Hope you enjoy my insight into the weekend, I will be uploading more photos over the coming days.

Thanks for stopping by ...
