Bromsgrove Cropaganza 2011..............

Happy Sunday, Friends !!!! I had the best day ever yesterday, it was Bromsgrove 12 hour Cropaganza and we all had a fabulous time, thanks to Libby who organized it all and made the day such a success, she also made the most amazing Buternut Squash & Parmasen Soup for dinner,mmmm delicious. Libby puts so much time and effort into organizing these wonderful events, so a big,big, thank you, we really appreciate it !!!!
The very talented Ifa Zainon  taught us three wonderful classes throughout the day with a kit from Sarah's Cards which was full of American Crafts papers, Thickers and mini alpha's,bling and lots of other little bits, I still have  loads leftover to do more LO's and cards, she is such a lovely lady and such a great teacher, thanks Ifa.
Here's my three finished projects :


This frame started out as a blank Tando Creative Multi Frame, Ifa had a selection of paint colours so everybody's looked completely different when finished.I love how she got us to stamp and heat emboss on the painted frame, it's so effective. The bits of paper were scraps leftover from the LO's,I added the little drop pearls when I got home.


I loved doing this LO, it is so pretty, we covered the blank chipboard ampersand in embossing powder and heat embossed, cut out flowers from one of the12x12 papers and also added Stickles to the doily, I love those Thicker alpha's.



This page was so much fun to do, I have never doodled on a LO before, but Ifa showed us how and I loved it and will be giving it another go. Where my white space is, Ifa filled her's with journaling which I'm not very good at, I never know what to say but I will do some sort of journaling on this page to finish it off.
Thanks once again to Libby and Ifa for a wonderful day !!!! I also got another two LO's finished which I will show you in my next post. Thanks for looking and for all the lovely comments you leave me, I really appreciate each and every one. Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

What a fun, but challenging to me, frame to work with. And your layouts are wonderfully done also.
