Crafty Weekend Away

Hello friends

Just in case you didn't see any of this on Facebook sharing with you
my crafty weekend away.  It was brilliant and the venue was gorgeous,
Laura Ashley Hotel in Elstree, Hertfordshire.
I was asked to put together a weekend retreat for some friends,
it involved a lot of crafting, a lot of food and a lot of laughter -
all the best ingredients!
The hotel gardens...must admit I didn't do a lot of walking, it was intense crafting!

So lucky with the weather.
We even had our own dining room!

Did I mention the food - top notch!
Breakfast, mid morning cake, lunch, afternoon, tea, three course dinners...

I rolled home!

And we did craft, just a few items we made.
The gift box challenge.
Mini albums.
Festive tags.
And here we all are, pre-dinner drinks.
Fantastic group of ladies and I loved introducing them to the world of
Spellbinders.  Definitely considering making retreats a regular event
so watch this space...

Today I am heading back to The Craft Channel so some hectic work
ahead..all good fun.

Take care friends.
