*a fantabulous day!*

Oh, I have had SO much fun today; went down to Crafty Pastimes in Stonehouse, Gloucestershire for Kirsty's and Emily's workshops - both were totally, totally awesome, to coin a phrase!! I'm afraid this post is going to be unusually photo-heavy, since I snapped away, and insisted on having my unphotogenic self in various shots with other, far more gorgeous scrappers!! I had the pleasure of sitting next to the adorable Katie Shanahan-Jones - what a peach she is! Anyway, for your viewing pleasure, here is a small selection of photies...

Gorgeous Rena made some of her world-famous cupcakes, which were delish - the icing was scrummy and creamy!

Kirsty's passion for Jaffa Cakes is well-documented, and so it will come as no surprise to members of the scrapping community that she was well-supplied with Jaffas today:

I was the fool who made the mistake of bringing the heinous blackcurrant variety...

I haven't got photos of my projects from today to post, as yet, as I haven't really finished either of them; Kirsty's is completed but not embellished, and Emily's is nowhere near finished, but I've made a good start!! It was a fantastic day, ladies - thank you, and to Linz for arranging the hall and letting us all come and splurge in the shop! A big "mwah" to my lovely mate Ali (Alibri), who was a teeny bit late arriving, but got there in the end - great to see you, darling! And it was really lovely to meet Beth, all-too-briefly - would have liked to have chatted for longer, hun! xx

And finally...

As promised, a photo of 'the cake' - remember, it is ages, and I mean ages since I last baked a cake, and this was an unfamiliar recipe, so I hope it tastes OK - I think it looks pretty edible, though??!!

Night, night all! xx

Oh, the famous coffee cake - looks wonderful and reminds me that it is time for breakfast (but not cake...)Although the cupcakes look tempting too.

Many thanks for the textiles site link, horribly tempting, but quite gorgeous - was going to mail you to say so but have been a bit off line recently.

If I'd known you were in Glos, I'd have invited you in for a cuppa, you probably drove nearby our place...
