My first Scrapping Retreat.

I am exhausted.
I got back yesterday from a 3 day scrap booking retreat, it was fantastic.
I have never spent so much time scrapping( 3 days ) we started early and finished very late. Or should that be early morning.
The time just flew by and I wish it could have been longer. Still I got lots of new ideas and finished lots of new LO's.
14 single pages
1 double page
a candle and one unfinished 4 pages in one LO.

I am also off to scrapaholix tonight so not going to unpack yet.
when I do I shall take some pics of my LO's and post them here.
Enjoy the rest of the day x

I love Paperchase

I popped into Paperchase this morning to get yet another pack of paper for the wedding order I am working on. I was 4 sheets short.
I could not resist having a look around and as usual they had fab stock. The Christmas stock is amazing and so much that can be used in my crafting.
I was very good and said to myself I could only have one thing. So I chose yet another note book.
Here it is..........

It is so so cute. The cover is fabric and parts of the pattern are stitched.
I love it. x

My 1st trip to Pickleberry Papercrafts

Today I had a fantastic time playing with paper at Pickleberry.
I went with Louise to a class taken by the lovely Jane Dean. In the class we made the cutest advent calender ever. It is all ready to be filled with chocs, all for me!!!!!!!

Sorry the pics are not great. I could not wait till daylight.

Now I must tell you more about this beautiful little bit of papercraft heaven.
If I had not gone with Louise I may never have found it. Don't let that put you off, its more to do with my navigation skills than anything else.
We entered the door into the lobby and where met by a lovely smell and a feast fit for any crafters eyes. I must have spent at least the first five mins in ore of the beautifully crafted things all around me. All beautifully displayed to show them off to there very best.
The shop its self is a lesson to all just how much you can do, and do well with a small space. There are more beautiful things to buy there than in the size of a store like Hobby craft.
Well that's it what more can I say other than I loved it.
So here's what I bought..

And this lush ribbon.

As if all this was not enough excitement for one day, I was also lucky enough to see Jane's studio in all it glory....real eye candy. x

Bad blogger

I have not updated my blog for a while and I feel bad about it. However it is a good thing really as it means instead of playing around on my laptop, I have been playing with paper.
I have been busy with card orders and a huge wedding order that is still ongoing.
I have also been to another Stampin up evening over at Sharons.
I also had the pleasure of spending last sat and sun at 2 different crops. I had a fantastic time.
Here are some of the things I have been doing.

This is the' scrapbooking in and out the box' that I did at Sharon's.

Made with lots of pics of me. My Aunt gave them to me When I was expecting Harley.

I did this at the scrap loonies crop in Woking. What a great bunch of ladies. They are holding a retreat early next year. Details can be found in Scrapbook Magazine.

My favorite view on London.

This is page I did at the Golden Green Crop. I am off to a retreat with this lovely lot later this month. I cant wait!!!!!!!

This was done at Scrapaholix. Sorry it is on its side, consider it a little exercise to streach your neck.

This paper is so so cute love it.

I lifted this LO. I cant remember where I saw it but I think it is just gorgeous.

I must now get on with that wedding order as there is just so much to do.
Thank you for looking and let me know it was you who visited by leaving a comment, I just love them. x
