So my weekend started off on Friday when I went over to Sheena's house where we were joined by Sam and we had a lovely lunch and a catch up
Then we went in convoy to the hotel which was only 20 minutes away from Sheenas. We spent the weekend at this lovely hotel (photo taken early evening)
the reception had a lovely open fire
The weekend involved completing 3 mini books and 3 double page layouts - all of them I've still have to finish and will be a 'work in progress' over the next few weeks.
This was what greeted us at our table, Debbie & Tracey had had done each attendee a lovely decorated bird house - this is mine
and a bag with produces to make a name badge - I did attempt to do one - not sure where it is now - lolx
When everyone had arrived it was time for a Champagne cocktail welcome.
Debbie & Tracey introduced our teachers for the weekend and they each introduced themselves.

Final photo of me and the Glitz girls
Anna had set up a photo booth, I was able to taken this one of my buddies on the Friday night, there are more to follow.
I had such a great time, and learnt loads. Thanks everyone for making it a great weekend and special thanks to Rachael E (great to see you again - as usual) and Carol as well as Sam and Sheena for being my table buddies - love to all.
