In craft heaven !

Well in craft heaven is exactly the place I was this afternoon ! It started in Coventry with a fab lunch with my crafting buddy Maria. Then on to the windmill hotel for an afternoon workshop with Mr craft himself Tim Holtz....... Wow wow wow did we have a good time. He is one of the nicest down to earth famous crafters I have met. The kit was fantastic, great organisation from personal impressions and some great free gifts. I cant fault it at all. The definite highlight of my craft life. I have attached a picture of the marvellous free gifts that we got which was a signed book, satchel bag and apron ! Not to mention distress pens, ink, stain and a paint and much more. A big thanks to all involved. Look closely you will see my finished book that we made. Thanks for stopping by. Take care
