Back from Bonanza!

Well Ok i got back last Saturday but i've been sooooo busy i haven't had a chance to post. i had such a brill time, it was so nice to meet people who are as crazy about scrapbooking as i am! Met lots of UKScrappers too many to mention.

I was really pleased with my classes, except the Ki Memories class. Mandy was a fab and enthusiastic teacher, but the kit was all stuff from pretty old lines and it was a mini book, which i have an aversion to. My favourites had to be the Heidi Swapp inside the box and Leandras Paperartsy class. i have now totally fallen in Love with their stamps, and picked up a few while i was there and some of the mediums from Golden so i can try lots of techniques at home. I also took Lorraine's cool felt class, Jenn Starr's perfect pearls class, Beck's Li'l Davis class (this had a MEGA kit) and another Heidi Swapp class. i think i was quite restrained in the shopping mall, as you can see, i only bought 4 sheets of patterened paper! Friday night we went for dinner and i met more fabby UKScrappers and then i had another really early start on Saturday.

i ended up being moved into a classroom to help out and had the best time! The first class i walked into was being taught by Annie Hafferman who did a fantastic job of teaching the class as it was quite a complicated tag accordion book . I also got to meet Dyan of Art from the Heart, Alison and the lovely Kirsty Wiseman who i was mega chuffed to meet. i came home on Saturday night to find my kit had arrived from Scrap Room which topped off my weekend. Had such a good time, it was definatly worth the 6.30 starts ! Now i've got to find the time to finish off all the projects that i started.
