We are all back! :D

Well we are all back from the first weekend getaway and it is safe to say there will be more of them :D
We all had a great time and thank you to all our brilliant sponsors we will be adding some pictures from the weekend and of the creations we make with all the goodies we got over the following days and months.

These are pictures of the sort of goody bags that we all got a paper craft one and a jewellery one.

The paper craft bag has Lili of the valley, Crafts and me, Kenny K (from Whimsy stamps) and House mouse (from Joanna Sheen ) stamps. A4 card, lots of 6x6 papers, 12x12 papers, silicone glue, foam pads, quickie glue pen, sakura stardust pen, ribbon and other embellishments from Jazzlins, Dream weaver Stencil brushes, Sculpey clay, twinkling H2O's, Shrink plastic, sentiments, a whole range of gems from the lovely Vanessa and loads of flowers from The Paper Shelter among other things. As well as that there were flex and aqua markers for us all to use thanks to Letraset. A box of ribbon from Fantastic ribbon, super smooth paper for us all to stamp on from Crafty Emma's Store and card blanks, more ribbon and cosmic shimmer sprays from Jazzlins. There was an extra little lucky dip bag each as well that had vouchers for Crafts and me, Lili of the valley, Delicious Doodles, Kenny K's Downloads, Bearly Mine, The Crafty Purple Frog, stamps from Joanna Sheen and dies from Marianne Designs.

The jewellery kit was a starter kit so that everyone could have a go and I think most people that tried it really liked it. Natalie I think had most fun with it. There were charms, beads of various shapes and sizes, chain, tigers tail wire, elastic thread and a whole load of findings to make loads of things.

We had a great room with a huge table so that we could all craft together and Emma got to try out both copics and promarkers before she decided which she wanted to buy. We found that markers preference is very much an individual thing as some of us loved the copics and others loved the Promarkers. Emma will be getting promarkers (also my favorite).
The whole weekend was full of lots of laughter, fun and picking up new techniques from each other. I can not wait to see what we all do now we have all got home and can make even more with our goodies.
Thank you all of you ladies for a brilliant weekend. I am working on sorting out more for next year already so if you would like to join us next time please follow the blog and drop me a line.
Huge hugs
