I'm back!

The end of June saw what has now became an annual event when members of the Cardmaking Paradise forum meet up in East Grinstead  for The Craft Barn Extravaganza weekend. This year folks come from New Zealand, Germany, Portugal, Isle of Man and England. What a great time we had socializing in the evenings and watching the most talented of demonstrators during the day. Several husbands came as well and they enjoyed themselves on boys' days out to the Bluebell Railway and Brighton.

I made gifts of notebooks for my forum buddies. I thought I would struggle to come up with 17 different ideas but I amazed myself and didn't duplicate any design. However I do think it may be awhile before I make another one!!

I took the photos just before we left home and didn't have time to take them out of their cellophane bag.

These are gorgeous Maggie and I wish I had been able to come if only to receive one of these beautiful notebooks :)
Who knows I might make it next year!

I was lucky enough to get the book with the large yellow/greeny flower and it's quite beautiful. I'll have to speak to you about exactly how that flower was made! It's gorgeous.
