Back - and looks like I missed a good party...

Wow - yet again what a wonderful weekend of scrapping I've had,am tired but in a really good way.
The classes and teachers have again  been an inspiration. The atmosphere was so friendly and it was lovely to catch up again with people-have a giggle and generally have fun.
Here are some of the gorgeous projects from the weekend......


Mel's class -as always - loved her class

Suzanne's Inky class -we started this off with plain white embossed Parisian Anthology 12 x 12,then played with distress inks to get the colour combination that we liked.This is so 'me' this layout, I love playing with inks and also love a bit of glitzy bling...

This was  Clare's ATC tin we covered and we also made some ATCs to go inside or a mini book - whichever we preferred..


 This was the first class of the weekend, Clare's again, and we made the roses where you cut a swirl then wrap it round a pen or 'pokey tool ' to get the rose effect....


This was Mel's again, using a really zingy set of papers and gorgeous chipboard to mat the photos on to..
I did a few others but the aren't finished yet so will blog them when they are...

These are two cards that I made- one with the leftovers from a class and one with those fab Alice In Wonderland Graphic45 papers...








So now onto bloggy things..
It looks like I missed a really good party of blog friends at the weekend,I'm just off to have a hop and a read,and I would like to add that I too have 'met' some really really lovely people via blogland and funnily enough,I really miss it when I'm away from it. I know lots of people kind of pooh pooh it but I can honestly say thank you to everyone out there,I love your comments and I love your friendship and I love reading all your blogs about - life,kids, home, craft, recipes,thoughts on things, it really is a part of life that I would miss if it wasn't there...now I wonder if anyone has any cupcakes left over from the party...... more pics tomorrow .

We missed you at the weekend but I can see it was totally worth going to ATDML. Love all your projects but the first one is especially stunning.
