A Fab Weekend Away

Haven't posted on the blog because I have been away for the weekend to Nottingham with friends from the Canny Crafters, had met some of them before on the first Canny retreat but this was a slightly more informal affair and was absolutely fantastic. Good foood, plenty of chat, and a number of new techniques learned. This layout is a result of one of the challenges over the weekend but also had a go at jewellery making with shrink plastic, adding stamped images to candles, new techniques with alcohol inks and learned that my camera is capable of so much more than just using the auto function-of course the picture was taken using the auto function but I will be braver in the future.
The papers used are from the Blue Hill collection by Crate Paper, last months scrapbooking kit from Sarah's Cards

Pity Lorraine didn't teach us how to use the airbrush technique? I could do with a bit off my tummy there...Was fab to see you Ruth - and you've done us all proud with a fab layout!
