Workshop day !

Today was the day I had been waiting for..... The Graphic 45 workshop with uk designer Clare Charvill. And it was brilliant. The owner of my local craft shop Sue from Crafty bunch organised it and she did an amazing job. Kept us in drinks, cakes and bisciuts. We made a beautiful box. I still want to add a few bits and bobs to it. It was made using the new papers called Couture.
And also this week I received a wonderful package from one of my blog friends.
Take a peek at her blog : 
Stamping with Bibiana
The handmade tag is gorgeous - thanks so much Bibiana. 
Thats all from me today, lots to do as I prepare for the busiest working week of the retail year. Thanks to everyone who stops by, leaves me comments - it is truly appreciated.
