Artsycrafts Weekend Newport Pagnell

I was lucky enough to go to a second Artsycrafts weekend during the second weekend of May.  Once again there was a really friendly group of fellow crafters. I had a great time and thank you especially to these 3 ladies for being such good company:   Kay, Freema and Neet:

We also made friends with the lovely Spanish girls below.  This is Rita and her two sisters-in-law.  Rita was the only one who spoke any English but we had great fun using sign language and they really were good fun and we had lots of giggles.
Our first project was a large tag:
On day 2 we decorated a bird house with paint, cuttlebugged metal and stamps:
The main project for the weekend was a sampler board using LOADS of techniques and gorgeous stamps, dies and various paints:
Lin, Leandra, Karen, Jo and Lynne did a fantastic job of organisation, teaching, filling us with sugar, coffee, cakes and keeping an eye on us all - Thank you!!!!!!!!!

Counting down to the next one already! X

Sounds like you had a great time with some lovely friends.
Your creations are stunning. I love the tag, so much detail and that background is gorgeous.

Love your background (metal) on the love birds one - was so envious of what you finally produced (remember we were sat together).
Your sampler is gorgeous and you must give me a lesson some time on how you did that fab distressed background on the canvas.
Love your big tag too!
Hope to see you before but will see you on the next one.

Lovely colours on yours. Pity you had to put up with Neet and co, though, he, he!
