Rach and I arrived at Antsy Hall on Friday afternoon where we met up with Helen and Sarah, who also go to Bromsgrove crop. We literately dropped our bags in the hotel room and went down to register, meeting Debbie and Tracie, who organised this amazing event. It was non-stop from then on!!!!
This is the beautiful hotel we stayed at, in Coventry.
This is what was on the table when I sat down, isn't it sweet ?
After a welcome talk and a natter with everyone,( it was lovely to catch up with Jackie, who I haven't seen for a long time), we then went for dinner.
The four of us sat with the other two ladies from our table and the Glitz Girls, Laura and Erin. Oh my gosh, did we do some laughing, I love these two girls, they were so much fun and had such a great energy.
After dinner we got to work on our challenge kit, here's my LO.
Saturday morning, we were down for a lovely breakfast by 8.30am, ready for our first class at 9.30am. We had three mini book classes today, the first one was Festive 25 which was a countdown to Christmas using Authentique Festive collection, taught by Tracie Hudson.
I love this mini album, it's all ready to add photo's each day of December to the run up to Christmas.
A quick lunch, then it was time for Fancy Pants, My Life Mini Book, taught by the sweet Jodi, owner of Fancy Pants.
I love taking photo's and putting them on Instagram, it is becoming a photo diary of my everyday life so I decided to use the photo's for this mini book. The base of the book is made by using Fancy Pants 6 X 4 Journaling Cards, the papers and embellishments are The Good Life collection.
After dinner was "Party Night" with Make and Takes, raffle prizes and a quiz, we also got to carry on with any unfinished projects.
Here are a couple of the Make and Takes I did.
Sunday morning was just delightful, it was a crisp, cold Autumn morning, the sun was shining and I was in the most wonderful setting.I walked over to breakfast and was welcomed by this huge, open fire, just perfect !!!
After breakfast, it was back to the classroom for three LO classes, the first one was Fancy Pants using the Hopscotch collection.It isn't quite finished so when I've completed the second page I will show you the completed project.
Next up was Authentique using the Curiosity collection, I didn't do this one in class as I didn't have any suitable photo's but I've got the kit to complete at home.
Last but not least was a LO class with the Glitz Girls using the Cashmere Dame collection, I love this collection, it's all very 50's style retro.
This is another LO, that I need to finish, so will show you the full double page at a later date. It was then time for a group photo and time for our goodbyes, sob*sob*. I took a couple of photo's while the photographer was getting ready for us.
This is a photo of the talented teachers and the organiser, Debbie, who did a fantastic job and made my weekend, one I'll remember for a long time.
This photo just makes me laugh everytime I look at it, Helen doesn't like having her photo taken and even went incognito for the group photo, wearing her sunglasses. I caught her though trying to hide behind Rach, hehe.
Thank you for letting me share my weekend with you, sorry it's such a long post but it really was a crammed, fun packed weekend, I can't wait for the next event !!!!
