Two retreats in a row

It's been a pretty busy crafty time here in Den's Crafty Land - Last weekend was a bit of a special one for me as I was one of the teachers at the ATDML weekend retreat that the lovely Mel and Jill run twice yearly.
I was introduced to the retreat nearly five years ago ( wow where has that time gone ) by a friend of mine called Hilary. We had met at another crafty class and she thought I would like it. She was right, I loved it. I've been attending for 5 years now and in January this year I was asked to join the Design Team,I'd done some guest spots before and was thrilled to be asked to be a member.
Fast Forward to now and it was my turn to take a class ...
I decided to use Echo Park Beautiful Life papers and here is the layout.
We  inked through a stencil for the background and stamped and layered flowers 



Class in full swing ..


and we made a little card too 
 
The time flew by and all too soon it was over. 
In the evening I took a make and take class .
We made Tags with Prima Dolly stamps - everyone loved them so I was really happy!
 
and this weekend I've been to another retreat run by the lovely Clare Charvill where we made a beautiful book using the Twelve Days Of Christmas papers by Graphic45. 
I'll post about that in a day or so.

Loved this class Den and you were such a kind teacher - giving me pre-stamped flowers as you know my aversion to stamping. BUT how could I not want to do a little stamping when it came to those lovely Prima dolls? I adore my two doll tags and can wait until the Christmas crop when you promised to do some more x

It all looks lovely Denise. I think you need to give up accountancy and become a full time crafter!
