Workshop photos

Hello and a warm welcome to my blog. Remember I'm giving away a super blog candy when I reach 75 followers. This includes a special graphic 45 pack !! So spread the word !
Anyway last Sunday I had the most amazing craft day at Crafty bunch ! The lovely Pauline Wheeler was there to teach  as what can only be described as a masterpiece !! Me and my bestie Maria loved it....
Here's what we made 

I added a black & white photo from my wedding last year and personalised it with names & dates etc. Amazing mixed media fun. 

Here's a photo : sue the brilliant owner of crafty bunch ( how she puts up with us all I'll never know ), me in the middle and then the lovely Pauline. She will be appearing on Create & craft from next month - so be on the lookout. 
Can't wait until October as Sue has organised a craft retreat weekend where Pauline will be teaching and so will the fab Hels Sheridan. Exciting !! Not sure Sue ever stops organising for us all !! But I would like to say a massive thanks to her for everything she does, not sure if she reads my blog !!
Anyway enough of me going on , hope you have all had a great weekend, thanks for looking it's always appreciated xx
