Sarah's Cards 2nd Retreat

This weekend was the 2nd Sarah's Cards retreat in Warrington, i drove up on Thursday, leaving home at 9am and arriving at the hotel just after 2pm, it was a long and lonely journey but i'm so proud of myself that i did it.
Just like last year the whole weekend was a blast. I loved spending time with Sarah, Lianne and the rest of the DT girls, wish we could all get together more often. There were 6 fabulous classes, make and takes, challenges, and a very well stocked shop. On Saturday evening we had a few games of bingo, which had the room fall silent.  I was the caller and got a fit of the giggles, i blame Sarah/Lianne and  a few mishaps with the balls.

We all had to decorate our own canvas aprons this year. I made lots of flowers from Buckram, using the Tim Holtz Tattered flowers die, and used almost three whole bottles of Mica Mists!

I assisted the mega talented Rachael Elliott in the classroom. Here's my example of the layout she was teaching. It was a fabulous class and very Rachael.

I actually made three layouts over the weekend, which i will share later.

I can't wait until November when we get to do it all again, with different classes of course.
There are a very limited number of spaces left for November (only 5 as i type), and you can checkout all the details here.
