A weekend of crafting

On Saturday 10th, my and Julie set off from Birmingham at 7.00am to travel upto Bolton for the GoGo "Totally Textures" Day Event. The GoGo event was amazing as usual, they provided 6 classes, lunch, refreshment and an amazing shop, forgot to take any photos of it, but it was lush and they offer 30% discount on all the products, I was very good and even thought I got a few sheets of paper, I didn't go mad.

Julie & me deep in concentration.

It was lovely to see the girls again and also the other delegates, we had a good laugh and I for one learnt some new techniques and used some different mediums on my layouts.

First up was Eileen with this lovely layout entitled "Interwoven", using canvas and a patchwork effect.

Then Janice taught a 6 x 12 layout using stamped impression on velvet, called "Soft Spot"

Then Lorraine was next with "Knots for You"

After lunch came Nicola, with 'Surface Area" - with dry embossed on to metal foil and added the photos onto beer mats for added dimension.

After Nicola came Sheena class, not finished this one so will add it later.

And finally Janice did this note book holder, which is just lovely.

The day finished about 5.30pm and me and Julie drove home both very pleased with our purchases and our lovely classes.

Julie was kind enough to invite me to go with her to a BBQ, which was lovely so even though we got back to Birmingham about 7.30pm I didn't get home till around 10ish, so I had a long but great day.

No I didn't cook my own BBQ, I just wanted some BBQ photos - LOL

Then on Sunday, having a day to myself I finished off this layout, that I'd started last week for the GoGo 6th Birthday challenge. I used May 2010 kit, and the layout is about my changing hair styles over the last year,

Then I did this for the Shimelle prompt 5, used Echo Park Summertime Collection.

And this one of James, engrossed with his DS, using Scrapagogo March 2010 kit.

So thats all for now, will be back later with my completed mini book, thanks for stopping by and feel free to leave a comment.
