OMG What a weekend

The event finally come at long last. After Fridays hiccups I was nervously waiting for it. But i did not need worry. The evnt was just perfect and run without any major problems.

Dyan Reavely of Blonde Moments is just a craft superstar. She is such a great teacher. She makes every individual in the room feel so special. She treats you with respect and takes into account everybodies level. Nobody is left behind and those who are more advanced are not left with nothing to do. It was a fully entertaining package. The energy and humor that Dyan brought to the event was infectious and we were all laughthing in our seats within minutes of starting. Dyans team, Mark and Emy were also helpful and witty (mark) and very professional. The stock that was brought hubdreds of miles for our purchasing pleasure was outstanding.

The 6 classes we were taught were so packed full of techniques and tips. I will upload pics when i have fully completed then as to put them up now would do them no justice. My pics of the event did not turn out to good but here are a few.

The calm before the storm, lol

The stock that was brought for us was amazing. I only took £50 as I am a skint student now but i spent every penny. Here are some things i bought.

Elsie papers, 7 gypsies rubber band book, altered shapes and door hangers, rubber stamps, journalling stencil, Blonde moments christmas paper and pink sugar dumpling paper.

Special thanks to Dyan and her team for travelling hundreds of miles for us and to sandra for doing a great job of organising the whole event.

Hi Sarah,

I love your photos. As Sharon did I also copied them into my Scrap Attack folder of photos. It's great to have a selection from other people. I plan to pout my photos on UKS tonight. I don't have a blog but after seeing yours, Fiona and Sharon's I really want one now. I wonder though who would look at it!
