Welcome to my blog!

From x stitch I moved into card making - now I am playing around with mixed media! I am taking part in different workshops and with help from crafty pals, learning about different mediums and techniques. Hope you feel inspired to create after a visit to my blog - Happy Crafting!

Journal 52 - week 25 and craft retreat

Week #25
Alternate Prompt ‘Wine’
Include images of or quotes about wine in your spread.

It reads 'forget love I'd rather fall in wine' which leads me on to the craft retreat :).

It was organised by Kylie from Happy Little Stampers and she is based in Australia - she did a fabulous job of getting sponsors, we had a goody bag (on Kathy's blog here). Here is what was on our desks for us.

Colour craft and sizzix also provided plenty of prizes for the challenges throughout the weekend. Kylie did a demo with brushos and starch 


and we all made cards to enter the challenge.

There were a couple of other challenges including a treasure hunt and an Australian themed Christmas card.

I made 2 cards, both of which I forgot to take a pic of, and one of them I gave ti Kylie as a thank you card. I will try and remember to get a pic of the other one. 

Everyone's creations!

I created a few journal pages too which will be on my blog this week.
