I am organising a workshop weekend with the wonderful Hels Sheridan. We have 16 very talented ladies coming to play next weekend in Middlesbrough. Very excited as this is the first time Hels has been this far up North teaching. I had to meet up with her to pick up supplies last weekend and it seemed like a really good idea to meet at the Craft Den in Sheffield were Hels was teaching an Altered Box workshop. The Craft Den is a wonderful crafting heaven owned by the lovely Lynn. Whilst I was there it would have been rude not to take the class at the same time, wouldn't it? Well that's my excuse.
Below is what we made, as per normal I didn't finish it in the class but at home and I love it. I am going to enter this in the Simon says stamp and show challenge as this week it is all about green. http://simonsaysstampandshow.blogspot.co.uk/
|Love the colours ...|
One of my colleagues children is away at the moment in France on a School trip, so I have made her a little memory book for when she comes back. I love paper bag books they are so easy to make and can be made for any occasions for sure.

Wish me luck for next weekend.
Until the next time, take care
