An Eclectic day

Yesterday we all gathered together for the monthly Eclectic Keepsakes crop .Karen had asked me to teach a class this month - this is the design I came up with.
One of the main ideas for the class was to have a play with the gorgeous Prima canvas resist butterflies - an idea we originally tried at the ATDML crop in a class by Mel.
The butterflies start life off completely plain and beige - once you sprtitz them or ink them they magically transform.
I used a bit of stamping too - the flower in the left corner.
I loved seeing what the other ladies came up with.
I've got some other photos but I forgot to ask if I could blog them.
I was expecting to be washed away as there had been various weather warnings before the day but luckily it was dry all day.
Karen made some lovely muffins
We all had a bit of a giggle when one lady mentioned the latest book that everyone seems to be reading - something about shades of grey - no idea what it's about though - ( yep I bought the trilogy!)
It went so quickly as always - looking forward to the next one
I've been photo scavenging too - will share soon.

What a great design! No wonder they asked you to teach. It worked so well for everyone.

Oh, I love your original one but really like Janice's take on the design. I do hope that there will be a kit winging it's way to me very soon ...
So sorry I missed the class, hope that after I've seen the consultant I will be able to drum up the confidence to drive further afield on my own. Those cakes look delish.
So you're on the 50 shades of Grey series now, I bet himself thinks it's something to do with a Dulux colour chart ;-)

Your design is wonderful, as proven by all those pretty pages - so rich looking, every one.

Love the LO design & I love how everyone puts there own 'spin' on it! I'm not reading 50SOG...must be the only one who isn't!! Is it very Jilly Cooper-ish? :D

Fine work Denise! It must be so rewarding to see the other versions of your design emerge - thanks for letting us have a peep.
